When it comes to rocking styles that unleash our inner spirit, there’s more to finding the perfect outfit than simply browsing the best-selling tops and dresses on your favorite online shops. Sometimes we need to turn to aspects that inspire us the most to enhance our online style. But how can we take our fashion inspirations and transform them from a vision into our next fabulous outfit? The best way to bring your fashion ideas to life and create a comprehensive wardrobe that fully expresses your visualizations is to create a mood-board.
What is a mood-board?
Think of your favorite celebrities and the stylists they depend on to keep them looking their best. Celebrity’s like how Petra Flannery found Emma Stone the perfect pants for the Golden Globe Awards or how Leith Clarke is Keira Knightly’s go-to girl.
How do they organize their ideas so they can properly craft them into the works of art we crave to make apart of our attire? A mood-board is a strategy designers and stylists alike use to merge their ideas into one amazing design or look. It is a collage consisting of fragments of inspiration from images, color schemes, textures, patterns, fabric, and other samples you want to combine. It could be in the form of a physical model or created digitally. You could use anything you think of from a blog article to an old photograph of your mom’s oversized sun-glasses from the 1970’s.
Your imagination is the limit here.
Illustrate the style you wish to bring to life.
If you’re more of an online person, there are some easy, free tools you can use to for an extravagant collage you can access at any time from well-known sites like Pinterest to Canva to those on the rise like Niice and GoMoodBoard.
