It's a sad day. It's such a sad, sad day indeed. Today, I watched the Mid-Season Finale of 'Pretty Little Liars' and my life is now as empty as my purse. I'm not kidding, especially about my purse being empty.
In order to fill the void that will permeate my existence each and every Wednesday - I watch PLL online each Wednesday since I don't have ABC grrr.. - I decided to dedicate a style icon post to each of the Pretty Little Liars over the coming weeks. I might also do a post on the HUNKS in this series. They do have some seriously handsome men on that show, my God!
I'm starting with my favourite character, hands down: Spencer Hastings. Not only is she the most interesting character on the show, she's definitely the most stylish as well. Personally, I find that Spencer's style says a lot about her upbringing and background. Spencer is an overachiever, the daughter of a very prestigious and demanding family. Therefore, Spencer grew up to be an impeccable perfectionist, and this character trait is definitely reflected in her sense of style.
With regard to shoes, Spencer makes extremely stylish choices as well. Loafers, brogues and Oxfords are her bread and butter. We all know - or should know - that all three shoe-types are the basic preppy / geek chic shoes. In a couple of episodes, Spencer opted for equestrian, knee-high boots. She did, in fact, pair her double denim combo with such boots. Just in case you're wondering, yes, Spencer wears flat shoes most of the time.
Before moving on to some Spencer-inspired sets I styled for you, I want to mention Spencer's choice of colours. Neutral colours are Spencer's favourites, and she frequently wears earth tones as well. Other colours like navy blue, deep red and mustard were also worn by our favourite Hastings girl.
So, as promised, these are a couple of sets inspired by Spencer Hastings style that you can use as reference. I obviously used the guidelines I described in this post to come up with the outfits. Enjoy!
