We’ve all been there, sitting on your bedroom floor surrounded by a pile of clothes with nothing to wear. Nothing seems to fit or feel right. It’s a feeling I know all too well, trust me (Taylor Swift pun intended). Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Whether you’re looking for a casual outfit for college or some inspiration to spice up a dull party look, we are here to introduce you to some fashion icons that can steer you in the right direction.

Emma Chamberlain 

Emma Chamberlain is the fashion queen we all know and adore. From her quirky youtube videos to her iconic fashion sense, she won our hearts the second she set up that vlog camera in her bedroom. It’s no surprise that we see her everywhere these days – at the Venice Film Festival carpet, during whatever fashion week, on our Pinterest and Insta Feeds, you name it, she’s there. She is undoubtedly one of the fashion It Girls of Gen Z. It’s safe to say that Emma is your go-to for style inspo when you have nothing to wear. Take inspo from Emma’s white vest and cargo pants combo, for an effortless and laid-back look. It’s an easy outfit to throw on for those lazy days when you want to look cute but don’t want to put in a huge amount of effort. Perfect for college! Emma has also been rocking the maxi skirt this year. For a more cosy look for the cold Winter months, try pairing a maxi skirt with an oversized sweater or a patterned vest (some of Emma’s go-tos). That’s just a glimpse into her effortlessly elegant style, so definitely check out her Instagram for tons more outfits that you can recreate! 

BestDressed

If you’re looking for a preppier look Ashley, aka BestDressed on Youtube and Instagram is your go-to. With over 1.6m followers on Instagram, Ashley has made a name for herself in fashion media, even being invited to various fashion weeks over the years and working with big brands like Marc Jacobs. To say that Ashley is the queen of patterns is an understatement. If you’re looking to spice up your winter wardrobe, her Instagram feed is your one-stop shop for styling patterned pieces. Take her olive green striped shirt and gingham scarf in one of her recent posts. The two pieces are both completely different patterns and colours, but somehow complement each other perfectly! Crazy right? 

Her Youtube Channel will also be your best friend if you’re a thrifting gal. If you have any thrifted or old clothes lying around that you want to upcycle, her thrift flips are perfect for inspo! Plus, saves you from breaking the bank!

She also gives advice on how to style certain trendy pieces in a variety of different ways for a fun and unique look. In one of her videos, she gives advice on styling some basic pieces to elevate them into cute and chic outfits. For an effortless and elegant nighttime look, take a basic black dress shirt/blazer and pair it with your favourite mini dress and knee-high boots. All three pieces are basic, definitely items you can find in your closet, but with Mikayla’s tips, you can turn any basic item into a fun dinner-date look. With Mikayla’s fashion predictions you’ll be prepared to tackle your nothing to wear problem with ease! 

Tomira

Accumulating 424k followers and 9.9 million likes on her TikTok page, Tomira has gained popularity for her laid-back, street style. If that’s the look that you are trying to achieve, Tomira is your ultimate inspiration for it. Her cute and comfortable style is perfect for those days when you want to be comfortable, but also need to have the best outfit in the room. Her outfits are centred around baggy pants – cargo, parachute pants, you name it. She is seen pairing these pants with zip-ups, such as the Knight Top Desert from PrixWorkshop or this Marshall & Lee Senegal Sweatshirt with some Nike shoes. Both are very on-brand with the street style aesthetic. 

We can also take inspo from a look that she DIY-ed herself on her Tik Tok, where she cuts up a pair of baggy jeans, using the ends as leg warmers. Super creative! Tomira has that cool girl, effortless aesthetic that we all aspire to have. 

The next time you find yourself on the brink of a mental breakdown buried under a pile of clothes, remember that your favourite social media It Girls will always come to your rescue!
