How To Dress Like A Pinterest Girl

The Style Essentials You Need To Recreate Your Favourite Pinterest Looks This Autumn


Hey It-Girls! Happy September; I hope you're all feeling as excited for Autumn as I am. It's been a while since I've done a style blog post but I've been scouring through Pinterest for some Autumn style inspo and thought this new season would be the perfect time to bring back the style guides! I love Autumn fashion from the layers to the different fabrics and colours - there's no better time to establish your signature style than during this time. I've seen a lot of really amazing content around 'recreating Pinterest looks' so I wanted to use this blog post to dissect a few of the core style essentials that I think can help to create the perfect 'Pinterest-worthy' outfits this season. So if you're interested in learning how to dress like a Pinterest girl, keep reading!


1. OVERSIZED BLAZER

How to dress like a Pinterest Girl: Oversized Blazers

Oversized blazers have been a wardrobe staple for a while now and this season is no different. Not only is it the perfect layering item but a blazer can instantly turn a basic outfit into something that looks put together and fashion-forward. What's great about Autumn is that you can essentially give your summer outfits a new life by re-styling them with jackets and extra layers. For a go-to blazer that you can throw on over anything, opt for a classic style in black, white or cream. If you're looking to take it to the next level, choose light neutral tones or throw a contrasting sweater over your shoulders for the ultimate statement.


2. VINTAGE SPORTS SWEATSHIRTS

How To Dress Like A Pinterest Girl: Vintage Sweatshirts

Okay, this is one trend I am completely obsessed with right now! This preppy vintage style allows you to channel your inner "riche biche", dress like Lady Di and look effortlessly laid back and fashion-forward all at once. You can find vintage-style sweatshirts everywhere but Depop is definitely your best bet if you want authentic, unique vintage brands without the hefty price tag. Currently my favourite way to style a vintage sweatshirt is with a white turtleneck underneath on colder days or with some cycle shorts on those spontaneously sunny days.


3. LONG COAT

How to dress like a Pinterest Girl: Long Coats

Long coats and Autumn are a total match made in heaven *chef's kiss*! Similar to an oversized blazer, a long lightweight coat is the perfect transitional piece allowing you take any outfit from simple to stunning in an instant. What I love about a long coat is how versatile it can be; working from day to night, casual to formal, sporty or glam. My favourite look right now is matching tonal colours and layering over sweats or leggings for luxe athleisure vibes.


4. LOOSE FIT JEANS

How to dress like a Pinterest Girl: Loose Fit Jeans

I cannot believe I ever lived a life without loose fit jeans. It may sound dramatic but the day I ditched the skinny jeans and bought my first pair of loose fit jeans, my style completely transformed. Not only are they way more comfortable than skinny jeans but they are flattering on all body types emphasising the waist and hips while giving the illusion of longer legs. Loose fit jeans are super versatile and can be paired with anything from chunky boots and a long coat to white air forces and a nice top. A trick to get the perfect fit: get your jeans tailored! This is a total game changer (especially for us petite girls), ensuring your jeans fit like a glove and effortlessly elevating the way your outfits look.


5. DAD TRAINERS

Chunky trainers are another staple that shows no signs of going away and I'm absolutely in love with them. This season is all about those vintage dad trainer vibes with brands like New Balance paving the way for this look. They look great with white sports socks and work with jeans, joggers, cycle shorts, dresses and everything in between. Want to add a a more luxe, feminine touch? Opt for neutral tones and style with gold jewellery for a more elevated look.

So those are some of my favourite autumn style essentials to help you channel your inner 'riche biche' and nail Pinterest Girl style this season.
