As Coco Chanel once said, fashion is in the sky and in those free, helpful photo-sharing websites.

Today, I thought I would pay homage to an under-acknowledged member of the CF article-writing process: Unsplash.

For those of you who don't know, Unsplash is a website that offers thousands of crisp, high-resolution photos at zero cost and with zero hidden catches. In the past, it's helped me find many a beautiful cover image for my CF posts, and, now, it'll help you with some handy-dandy fashion inspiration. 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so stay tuned for a whole lot of learning with the three following picture-inspired fashion sets!

1. Pastry

3 words I would use to describe this picture: Sweet. Mellow. Girly.

Products: Dress, Shoes, Earrings, Head Scarf, Cardigan

Interpretation: Almost at once, I thought of a 1950s housewife: This photo inspires a look that's very Modcloth-cute, optimistically colorful, and full of quirky patterns!

Bold is the way to go when following this picture inspiration. Layer a brightly-colored cardigan over a patterned dress to look as alluring and sweet as a freshly-baked pastry. Then, stand out with daring red shoes and a floral head scarf. All that's left to do? Put on some sparkly earrings and call it a (fashionable) day!

2. Graffiti

3 words I would use to describe this picture: Edgy. Cool. Trendy.

Products: Shoes, Shirt, Bag, Jeans, Cuff Bracelet, Scarf

Interpretation: A picture as fashion-forward as this deserves a typical "street style" look, with ripped jeans and effortlessly cool accessories galore.

Go to your local thrift store - or, if you must, Urban Outfitters - for this outfit. Start off by picking out a distressed pair of jeans and a thinly-layered long shirt; then, add on a cuff bracelet and black sneakers for definite street cred. Finally, make the outfit stylishly edgy with a dark shoulder bag and two-toned grey neck scarf. Don't forget to do the iconic wall pose shot for prime cool cat status!

3. Urban Landscape

3 words I would use to describe this picture:  Striking. Glitzy. Classy.

Products: Lipstick, Dress, Pantyhose, Necklace, Clutch, Pump

Interpretation: The two main colors of this photograph (black and gold) are striking and best represented through an elegant date-night outfit.

An LBD is the epitome of sophistication, so slide one on and add accessories. Pantyhose, red lipstick, and black pumps are more fashion essentials you'll need for the classiest of outfits. Now, be sure to invest in a simple gold necklace and clutch and you'll be golden for a fun night out on the town!
