Style Stealer: Whip Your Style Back Into Shape with Willow Smith
Pint-sized cutie Willow Smith, 10, may be small in stature but she’s certainly a BIG style icon in the eyes of fans everywhere. The songstress busted it out with her hit single “Whip My Hair” in 2010 and since then has continued to make headlines within the fashion industry for her gutsy get-ups. It’s no surprise she is such a fashion natural – after all, she is the product of superstar Will Smith and his gorgeous wife Jada Pinkett.
Don’t have A-list parents or a large bank account but pine over this tiny superstars ensembles? Consider me your fairy godmother, Cinderella! I have taken the liberty of rounding up a fierce Willow inspired outfit that will leave you ready for the ball without the tacky glass slippers.
Let’s start with the shoes- Willow loves combat boots with edgy detail. I found the perfect ankle boot by the name of Bleasdale from Aldo‘s website in the color of ‘Ice’. The boots retail at $150.00 but will be a great investment piece and will get plenty of use. The boot has strappy detail that mimic’s a pair Willow is often spotted strutting her stuff in.
Every girl trying to put together a Willow inspired ensemble needs some funky patterned jeans or leggings to tuck inside of her combat boots. American Apparel is my pant go-to hot spot! The songstress is often seen rocking animal print pants on the red carpet. The pair I found come in a tie-dye wash and are actually unisex. They retail for $78.00 and are the perfect pair of pants to add edge to any outfit…
Our girl loves to look comfortably chic… graphic tee’s are a great way to achieve this look without trying too hard. Urban Outfitters always has a great selection of cheeky tee’s. I chose a baggy tank in white called the Truly Deeply Madly Rope and Anchor Swing Tank Top. If you’re after a tighter fit or style with sleeves check out the website.
To Finish off the ensemble we need to take a cue from Jada’s mini me and add a cropped leather jacket that embodies detail in the stitching. Leather jackets can be expensive… so I selected a faux version from Forever 21‘s website. The jacket is priced at a mere $37.80 and has a bit of poof in the sleeves. The jackets modern details emulate the leather coat that Willow wore to the Karate Kid‘s Paris premiere in 2010.
NOW that we have the clothes covered lets talk hair. Willow rocks and whips her hair in style. To get her signature faux hawk style check out the ‘how-to’ video below:
