How to Recreate a Fashion Look

Magazines are a great source of inspiration, especially when you're looking at updating your wardrobe. Stylists put together such great looks for models, but you wonder how you can recreate those looks for yourself. The runway is another great source of inspiration, but let's be honest, not too many of us can afford to wear Armani, Dior and Dolce and Gabanna.

But that doesn't mean you can't be just as stylish as those wearing designer frocks. There are cheaper, and smarter ways to recreate a look. You just need to know where to start, and this article will help you get going on the right path.

The number one rule is to pay attention to the outfit you have in mind. Don't look at it as though it is a complete look, because chances are it consists of bits and pieces from various collections/brands/stores etc, which give it that overall effect.

Decide on what you like and what you don't. Perhaps you like the color combinations and not necessarily the style of the outfit. Looking at it from this perspective will help you re-create the look for yourself, but keep your own personal style in mind.

If it's the style you love, be sure you look at other color options in store as well. For example, if you fell in love with the cut of a black jacket, don't expect to find the exact same one in store. You may find one similar or perhaps, pretty much identical, but in a different color, so be sure to check for that.

If you have a specific look that you're after and you love the whole thing, from head to toe, start by cutting the image out and taking it with you when you go shopping. Try not to shop for a look based on memory, because you will almost surely come home being disappointed.

Once you have your starting point (the picture), start searching for the individual pieces at various stores, until you have similar pieces that you can put together to create your own fashion look.
