Elin Kling

Elin Kling

You might already know Swedish style blogger turned street style icon Elin Kling from her collaborations with Guess by Marciano and H&M. If you’re like me, you’ve come across loads of her photos on Pinterest and devoted hours to ogling her outfits (seriously, I can’t stop), then threw in a few more hours googling to figure out who she is.

Her minimalist style is flawless – she always looks perfectly pulled together in that “I just threw this on” sort of way – and, like a true minimalist, sticks to a mostly black and white palette (and looks stunning while doing it).

Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama

The epitome of style and substance, Michelle Obama is a true style icon who’s proven that it’s not an exercise in vanity to put thought and effort into your appearance.

Whether she’s exercising with kids, digging in the White House garden or meeting the Queen of England, Mrs. O is perfectly put together, appropriate for the occasion and always true to her personal style. According to Anna Wintour, the first lady has democratized fashion – helping to make high end design more accessible. She effortlessly mixes designer pieces with items from Target and J.Crew and even reuses pieces from her own closet.

Kate Middleton

Duchess of Cambridge

Most of the focus around The Duchess of Cambridge’s style has centered around her wedding dress but I’m personally more interested in how she’s putting her own personal touch on royal attire. She’s appropriately posh and polished but with a modern, stylish and approachable spin. She even looks cute while she’s playing field hockey.

If you’ve never seen Blair’s blog, Atlantic-Pacific, set aside a few hours and dive in. Every outfit is polished but playful: a study in color, proportion, texture, pattern play and perfect accessorizing. I could easily include her ensembles in every one of my blog posts (…I think I do). I mean, she even makes bright red Hunter Boots looks super chic.

Olivia Palermo

All of my style icons are women who – no matter what they’re wearing – have a distinct personal style and always look like themselves. I can’t put my finger on exactly what I’d label Olivia’s style as, but, without fail, she always looks pulled together and comfortable in her clothes.

If you haven’t seen this behind-the-scenes video of her shoot for Grazia UK yet, Olivia shares her thoughts on British style and dressing for London Fashion Week.
