Here is how my daily routine goes. I wake up, wash my face, brush my teeth and turn on the computer. Next on my agenda: Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. For quite some time now, I’ve been obsessed with Pinterest and unlike the other two websites it’s not because I get to follow my friends, but because I can see beautiful things that interest me and inspire me every day.
You know what they say: “A picture is worth a thousand words”? Well that’s how I feel and I imagine all of you who are interested in fashion will strongly agree with me on this one. As fashion-savvy individuals, pictures are what attract our attention, so here are the best Pinterest boards for women’s fashion.
The Best Pinterest Board for the Shoe Obsessed
Girls, shoes affect us. We can go a little bit nuts if we can’t afford the pair that has won over our hearts. You can probably remember at least one time when you saw shoes with expensive price tags and thought “Damn, I have to have these”, went in the store just to find themselves minutes later asking “What was I thinking? I can’t afford these”.
Well, ladies if you want to window-shop without the danger of impulsively burning out your credit card, Refinery29’s Pinterest board for shoes is just the right place for you. Crazy, funky, hilarious, weird, elegant, extremely uncomfortable, mesmerizingly beautiful, you name it they got it. Heaven has opened its doors for all of you shoe stalkers out there.
The Best Pinterest Board for the Fashion Historians
Every once in a while, you can’t help but wonder how fashion has evolved throughout the centuries, especially when many designers nowadays draw inspiration from the fruitful past. The lavish and extravagant fashion of the royal courts back at the time when Marie Antoinette ruled, the splendor and glamour of the Golden Era in Hollywood and the simplicity and minimalism of the 1950s are not just memories: they are great influences for any designer’s piece.
Annie Belle’s Pinterest board is filled with archives of almost every fashion era. That’s why I can never just go look at one of her boards only, simply because I love all of them. From Hollywood in the 1900s, 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and so on, from fashion muses and icons to costumes and vintage clothing, I can say with a great deal of certainty that fashion’s history is all documented in Annie’s boards. So for all of you who want to learn more, take a virtual visit to this account. You won’t regret it.
The Best Pinterest Board for Street Style
I believe with all my heart, that style should never be dictated by the rules that famous fashion designers impose. If style is anything, it should be the embodiment of a fashionista’s personality. Long before fashion designers even came to the scene, personal style existed. That’s why photographers like Bill Cunningham took their lenses on the streets to capture styles of random people.
Lauren Santo Domingo is a contributing editor to Vogue, New York. Her Pinterest board for street style contains the most savvy and passionate fashionistas on the streets. From celebrities to well-dressed random people, this Pinterest board is a real treat for the eyes and feast for every fashion’s soul.
The Best Pinterest Board for Accessories
While inventing your own style, many people embellish themselves with accessories and stylish chic bags. I don’t know about you, but whenever I have a simple monochromatic outfit on I always spice it up with some colorful accessories. Before I go shopping, I drool over Simone Oliver’s Pinterest board for accessories, because I know that’s where I’ll find an idea that suits me.
Bracelets, oversized rings, chunky necklaces, hairpins, wooned watches Plantwear and belts can really change your overall outfit and styling. They can emphasize the part of your body you want to accentuate and give extra flare of spark to your style.
Best Pinterest Board for Fashion Designer Illustrations
Ever since I was a little girl, I was stunned by fashion designer illustrations, probably because Iwanted to become a fashion designer myself. Countless of drawings and sketches later (for my eyes only), I’ve stumbled upon an impressive collection of illustrations that made me both sad and happy. Sad because the drawings are sheer perfection, something my hand can never ever draw and happy because I’ve found something truly inspiring.
Erika Bearman is PR manager for Oscar de la Renta. Her Pinterest board inspires me every time. It never fails. If you are looking for some sort of inspiration or anything that can light up your creative siren, this Pinterest board is the right place to look.
