Now that the fun new fashion-centric Jane by Design show premiered on ABC Family, whose look did you love? (If you missed it or don't have a TV, you can watch it here.) Whose look would you steal and what are your top tips for snagging the look? Be sure to share your style advice on the Jane by Design FB page, and please don't forget to mention that Fashiontribes sent you. And if you tweet, the official Twitter hashtag to use is: #JBDStyleChallenge.
So far, the fashion bloggers participating in the Jane by Design Style Challenge have...
...shopped for something interesting & video'd the haul (Challenge #1)
...upcycled a tee inspired by a style icon (#2)
...described the most "me" handbag in our collection (#3)
...transformed a fugly Xmas sweater-vest (#4)
...styled a plain white buttondown for a day at the office & then out for cocktails (#5)
...used pretzels(!) for fashion inspiration (#6)
For this, the final challenge, we were instructed to share our own tips on how to get someone's look. I particularly like Billy Nutter, the bestie of the title character, Jane - and his rocker-boy 80s vibe.
For my Billy-inspired ensemble, I started with this completely fab Rick Owens leather (any excuse for Rick Owens, really) and cute Michael Michael Kors skinny pant with an interesting tuxedo-stripe embellishment for visual texture & to keep all this black from feeling too heavy. A vintagey tie in leopard looks equally cute on fashionistas as it does fashionistos - and accessories by Alexander Wang proved picture-perfect. (They're all available at NET-A-PORTER)
Just step into a pair of cute jodhpur boots like these snazzy ones from Burberry, spike up your tresses - try Living Proof Hold Firm Hairspray - et voila, it's Billy-fabulous by design.
