Anime Style Icons

Izaya Orihara (Durarara)

We only see him in one basic outfit throughout the show but it doesn't get much cooler when it comes to a guy's style than Izaya. It just looks so fresh and laid-back and the monochrome palette really suits his shady personality so who needs multiple outfits? Kudos to the people who did the character design for incorporating the minimalist trend into his look before it became a huge deal. Also check out the female version of Izaya. I'm definitely going to start wearing my parka with a dress now.

Amane Misa (Death Note)

Misa is not exactly what you would describe as a powerful female lead and she's not the most popular female character but she does know how to dress. Her style is feminine with plenty of goth elements incorporated that contrast with her sweet and naive personality but nonetheless if you want to look a bit more feminine while also maintaining an edgy vibe her style is great for inspiration.It is basically a softer, more "conservative"  version of the goth lolita look that is so popular in Japan. Some elements are a bit outdated as the anime is pretty old(I think it came out in 2007) and her outfits can be more than a bit revealing but it is still a really distinctive look.

Taylor Swift fashion picks

Taylor Swift is a guilty pleasure of mine and I am loving her new feminist stance and her pop album but her style is on another level. Lately I've been trying to be more feminine and I love looking at pictures of her outfits. You can't really call her a risk taker but her style is so clean and preppy and twee and I'm really into it when she wears more sophisticated outfits. Here are some of my favourite casual outfits:

Maria Yaremchuk

If you don't watch the Eurovision you might not now who she is but last year Maria placed number seven in the finals. Now I'm not necessarily a fan of the Eurovision (I still watch it every year for the laughs so what am I saying?) but I was definitely a fan of her look and attitude that night. Hands down the coolest, sexiest performer of the night  (in my humble opinion).  Even now, a year later I keep thinking about how cool she looked that night and I really want to recreate her look. So I looked up her name on Google an her style is just as cool in real life. Feminine and edgy at the same time, she manages to look sexy even when she is completely covered up.  Her look is also similar to mine in that we both have dark hair and like to wear smokey eyes and dark clothes. Also I am going through a phase where I want to try and be more feminine so I am definitely going to take some cues from her.

Her look in the final and my favorite. It's simply perfect. Her hair and that dress are amazing.
