Confessions of a Fashionista: The Secret to Style

Have you ever found yourself stalking influencers’ Instagram accounts like Caroline Daur or Xenia Van Der Woodsen and wishing you could reach the same style stardom? What if we told you that their style secrets are both accessible and attainable? Sometimes it’s as simple as following a few rules of thumb. From investing in the basics to always accessorizing, allow Urban Planet to reveal style secrets to steal from the fashion legends themselves and shop the most coveted trends now!

Invest In Basics

Investing in the basics means having basic tees, earth-toned knits, and other easy-to-wear items in your closet. Much like how coffee is essential to a Monday morning, the basics are the foundation of any great outfit. These pieces anchor the other crazy, statement-making pieces in your closet. Looking to wear your punchy plaid pants? Pair with a crisp white tee and you’re good to go!

Accessorize

If you’re looking to upgrade your closet, stocking up on alluring accessories is the best way. Chunky scarves, furry gloves, and on-trend caps instantly transform any outfit from modest to magnificent. Fashionistas aren’t afraid to take risks or sport bold trends. Take Urban Planet’s wool cabbie hat, for instance. While you may feel like you’re pushing the envelope, it’s important to step out of your comfort zone every now and then. Don’t fall flat! Wear a hat!

Wear Color

Own at least one conversation piece. If your closet is a flood of black, try to start small and work your way up by incorporating pale pastels into your palate. Once you’re comfortable with that, you can slowly transition into vibrant neon hues. Have fun with it! As of recent, fashion icons such as Gigi Hadid have been seen sporting retina-scorching neons on the daily. Look to Urban Planet’s red-hot blazer for iridescent inspiration.

Live In A Trench Coat

Cinched at the waist and flattering in every way, a belted trench coat is every it-girl’s best friend, especially during the cooler months. Whether you’re wearing yours with trousers or track pants, we are obsessed with the simple, yet sophisticated look of the trench coat. Whether you want to blend in with black or make a subtle statement in dusty rose, Urban Planet is stocked with timeless trench coats you’ll wear year after year.
