With a penchant for mixing vintage with new and combining unexpected colors, textures, and shapes for an ever-so-chic result, we are loving the style of the gorgeous Peony Lim!
Though you may not be familiar with the London-based stylist and blogger by name alone, if you have ever looked through street-style sites such as The Sartorialist, Citizen Couture, Vanessa Jackman or even Vogue.com, you have most certainly spotted Lim in one divine look after another.
If there’s one thing she is not, it’s afraid to take risks and stand out in a crowd!
Her polished yet slightly quirky aesthetic comes together as a culmination of sleek, structured shapes with a touch of fun, unexpected embellishments and a nod to old Hollywood glamour. To achieve a look similar to Lim’s, be sure to anchor your outfit with a tailored piece such as a sharp trouser, or a blazer or coat, and mix in vintage or vintage-inspired elements; the more colorful or furry the accoutrements, the better.
In this movie obsessed city, the world really is our stage! So, it makes complete sense to desire a look which drips with old Hollywood glamour. The focus of this look? The red lip: A key glamour staple and by coincidence a look which is very 'now'.
To wear red lipstick well, ensure you choose a shade that compliments your skin's warm or cool undertones. If your skin is cool, a lipstick with blue undertones -such as Mac 'Red'- -will work fabulously. If your skin is warm an orange toned red-such as Mac 'Lady Bug'-will deliver much better results. You want the focus to be your lips, so make sure the rest of your make up is simple. After applying a light covering of foundation, apply a concealer to even out skin tone and cover any blemishes. Add just a light slick of mascara to your eyes and some color to your cheeks with a light dusting of neutral toned blush.
