With over a million subscribers on YouTube, style and beauty vlogger Kelsey Simone inspires us with her quirky and down-to-earth personality. 

Kelsey describes her style as a good mix between grungy and classy, and indeed her edgy, minimal style is totally inspirational.

Today we're taking a few outfit pointers from Kelsey’s Instagram, where she shares many of her #OOTDs. Here's our guide to Kelsey Simone's style:

Kelsey Simone Style Outfit #1:

Kelsey usually mixes different textures and moods to create a cohesive outfit. In order to successfully mix a few different styles in a one outfit, she sticks to a minimal color palette. In this outfit the denim, knit, and leather textures all complement each other quite well. The subbed colors keep the textures from looking out of control. 

In short, this outfit teaches us that style is not one-dimensional. No need to put your style preferences into a specific category. Experiment with textures and styles you love, and wear them together. One easy way to do this is to stick to a neutral color palette so all the style elements pair well together.

Kelsey Simone Style Outfit #2:

The second outfit shows that how you style your pieces is just as important as the pieces themselves. Here, Kelsey is wearing two different shirts and she styles them both in unique ways. The white tee is tied for a sleek look and the striped, oversized blouse adds a pattern and layered element to the outfit.

I love that Kelsey is not afraid to take risks in some of her styling choices, specifically with the flare pants. Lately, fashion trends have been shifting away from the basic skinny denim to other cuts like straight and or boot cut. You can balance a boot cut or flare style pant with a slimmer top, as Kelsey did by tying her tee for a cropped effect. Kelsey kept the outfit causal with her Adidas and simple accessories. Overall, this look is definitely my personal favorite of the three!

Kelsey Simone Style Outfit #3:

Kelsey’s style is definitely luxe, but she does it on a budget. Many of the items she wears are minimal and affordable. Buying simple pieces that fit well is any easy way to get the luxe for less look. You’ll find a variation of this third outfit throughout Kelsey's Instagram, namely a mom jean, black booties, and neutral top. The outfit idea itself is simple, yet Kelsey manages to make it her own with the grungy wash of the jeans and classy accessories.

Many of Kelsey’s pieces are high street brand items based on designer or runway styles. No need to break the bank when you can find trendy designer inspired pieces at stores like Zara, Forever 21, or Zaful.
