The Apéro Team's Style Icons - Apero Label
Mykayla - Cher

The style icon I look up to the most is no other than the Queen herself; @cher, specifically 70s Cher, but all decades of Cher are iconic. I particularly like how eclectic her style is and that she was pushing boundaries of style in a time where fashion was considered more conservative. It’s because of people like her and David Bowie for example, that people today are able to express themselves with not as much criticism. I love that Cher would mix up her outfits from wearing a cowgirl look, to a glittery see-through number to an androgynous suit, straight out of a guys wardrobe. A lot of her style from 50 years ago has circled back and is going strong today!

Gabby - Giovanna Battaglia

Who else could I pick but the dignified icon of street style that is @giovannaengelbert (Harper’s Bazaar can back me up on this statement). I enjoy her formula of simple, classic silhouettes that are made interesting by her experimentation with bold colour, an array of fabrics and finer details that make all the difference. She has this specific ease that just oozes confidence and most importantly, a comfort in herself. This is what I value most when dressing and presenting myself to the world, and I think Giovanna is the best example of this. I aspire to one day possess her poise and assurance when walking down the street. As well as maybe her shoe and sunglasses collection.

Lilli - Marie von Behrens-Felipe

Marie (@mvb) is a European fashion blogger now based in NYC. Her sense of style is naturally effortless and timeless. Her go-to is a simple tank with a pair of baggy jeans/trousers, a hoodie, a baseball cap with a sneaker/chunky slide. I like my fashion and clothes to be easy to put together and comfy when worn. I feel like she nails this vibe!

Bianca - Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 

@rosiehw is a modern day style icon. Over the past few years Rosie has absolutely elevated her style and regularly posts her outfits, home interiors and holy grail beauty products to Instagram. I would describe Rosie’s style as polished, neutral and timeless. I love how easily her wardrobe can be worn in different ways, from wearing oversized blazers with tailored pants, to pairing these blazers over knit mini dresses. Rosie has absolutely nailed the art of layering and regularly layers oversized button-up shirts over singlets, not to mention how she rocks the athleisure look of tracksuits, longline coats and sneakers.

Sarah - Hermione Underwood

Hermione Underwood @hermioneolivia If you haven’t heard of her, shame on you! Not only is she an epic fashionista she is also the UK CEO of JS Health. I mean ultimate girl boss vibes! Her style can bounce in and out of an effortless suit or tailored look to a floral bright fun dress. Think blazers, leather pants with sneakers and then switching into a flowy dress with an incredible print. The coolest outfit inspo right here. 

 

Emily - Lizzy Hadfield 

London based fashion blogger, Lizzy Hadfield, is a big favourite. Hadfield has built a following documenting her style on her blog, ‘Shot From the Street' and instagram, @lizzyhadfield. Her signature look toes the line between tomboy cool and feminine chic. Her go-to pieces are tailored trousers, blazers, turtlenecks and oversized tees in smart blacks, navy and whites. Paired with sneakers, Hadfield has the wardrobe of my dreams -  functional, androgynous and effortlessly stylish.
