Amanda Start (AKA the Online Stylist) is a master of Scandi style chic. She braves the spring showers to show off a rainy day uniform that will really look after you, because after all when it pours we really just want a hug and a good parka will do just that…
I’m reverting to monochrome type here and saying black skinny jeans, a classic white shirt and the softest grey cashmere sweater. I think those three pieces can form the backbone of so many other looks.
How would you define your style?
I’ve been asked this question a lot and it’s one I’m constantly asking myself – especially when shopping for new pieces! Over the years, my style has definitely evolved into a more minimal look and in order to stick with what feels right, any new purchases have to meet a specific three-word criteria: Relaxed – Simplicity – Individual. Having that in mind definitely helps me stay true to what I love and avoid too many impulse buys.
Who do you look to for style inspiration?
Other style bloggers, Instagram and Pinterest – oh my god I love Pinterest! There’s everything you need there all in one place – which is probably why I spend hours on there!
Do you have any major style faux pas?
I would say a few of my early outfit posts contain more than a fair share of outfit faux pas… and documented for all to see! But I always think no regrets – style should be about experimenting and that means you don’t always get it right.
Would you say you are a shoes or bag girl?
It used to be shoes but now its bags! I would love to invest in something by Chloé, Céline or Proenza Schouler one of these days… and I definitely blame Pinterest for that!
