Street Style lessons from Celebrities

Street Style Lessons from Celebrities

These days I’m rewatching the old episodes of One Tree Hill. Remember that tv show with that cutie, Chad Michael Murray? Well, when the show aired, about ten years ago, I was too busy watching Charmed and Gilmore Girls to get involved with OTH, but last summer they brought it back on TV and after watching a couple of episodes I finally got hooked. I guess I just needed time to get into it!

What I like about this tv show is not only the eye-candy (Almost every single person in One Tree Hill is damn good looking!) but I also started to like the actors and the way they portrayed their character’s personalities, most of all I started to like Sophia Bush. I did some research on her and I found out that she’s not only a great actress and a beautiful woman, but she’s also a philanthropist, very engaged in helping people, fighting for women’s rights and animal abuse.

What I like about her is that she’s not only a so called “pretty face,” there’s more to her than just beauty. I would like girls to understand that, starting from me, so many girls struggle with low self-esteem, thinking that we have to look good to be worth something and we forget that we should be giving as much if not more attention to our brain. I hear so many teenagers say: “This guy just said I’m so beautiful!” I get it, it’s nice to receive a compliment, especially from the guy you like, but it’s not the focus or our aim in life to be treated as objects and that’s it right? Let’s take as our new examples women who did and are trying to make a difference in the world, not only by looking pretty in front of a camera, but by using their intelligence to draw us in, using charming words, showing us how passionate they are about real issues.

I think what makes a girl become a  fully, interesting, and beautiful woman is the sum of her inner and outer beauty.

I decided to go on this small rant at the start of this post today, because it involves Sophia Bush, who I think is a beautiful woman inside and out. She does good things for the community and she also has great style!

I’m going to start a new series called “Street Style Lessons from Celebrities” starting from today. Each week I’ll be featuring a celebrity that has been sporting a nice, cool look and sharing with you guys some similar looks for a more affordable price. As I said this week it’s all about Sophia Bush.

Bush’s style is simple and laid-back, yet she’s able to sport every outfit she wears with confidence and grace, making even the most plain piece of clothing look cool. In the first photo the actress is wearing a very casual Summer outfit. These are the pieces I would recommend if you wanted to try a similar look.

Casual

Tank top: H&M 

Boyfriend Jeans: Topshop

Sandals: Zalando

Bag: Guess

The second photo shows Bush in an elegant suit, I personally love this masculine look and would definitely try it out for a black tie event. For the look I came up with I decided to switch up the colours of the blazer and the pants and I also went for a faux leather material for the trousers since I’m not comfortable with wearing real leather.

Suit

Blazer: Zara

Faux Leather trousers in white: Zara

Shoes: Steve Madden

Clutch: Kate Spade

 

The last outfit wore by Bush is more formal and probably most of us would have a hard time finding an event to wear this dress to, so I decided to show you a dress that’s less striking both in the colour choice and the cut. I chose a wrap front maxi dress in pale pink paired with a Kate Spade clutch and black embellished sandals from Asos.

Formal

Dress: Shopbop (Alice+Olivia) 

Sandals: Asos

Clutch: Kate Spade 

 

So here you are! Let me know what you thought of these looks and if you like them and are going to try some out! I would love to know!
