My Style Hero: WeWoreWhat


Share This Article:

On Team Fashion & Beauty here at The National Student, we pride ourselves on our wide range of styles and have decided to create a weekly lean in for each of us to get a chance to show you our Style Heroes. This week, Fashion Contributor Lydia Venn is up!

For me there is no one better suited to the role of Style Hero than the sophisticated, sassy and uber stylish Instagram blogger WeWoreWhat or to use her real name, Danielle Bernstein.

Danielle started off her blog documenting street style and giving daily outfit inspo (which she still does today), but now WeWoreWhat has transformed into a powerhouse brand. With over 1.5 million Instagram followers and counting, Danielle has transformed WeWoreWhat to be the go-to place for all aesthetic inspiration. Not only has the blog excelled but Danielle has launched her own extremely successful lines of kick-ass boots (Archive Shoes) and stunning overalls (SecondSkinOveralls).

WeWoreWhat has really made me respect the work of fashion bloggers - you can tell how committed and hardworking she is in creating authentic content and designs that her followers will love (me included!)

Why do I love her?

Her style is flawless and what’s more, it’s approachable and accessible! Danielle is the queen of mixing high street and designer – don’t be surprised if you see her in an outfit featuring Missguided and Chanel. Her aesthetic is girly with an edge and her Instagram is full of beautiful floral dresses layered with leather jackets and pointed ankle boots. Her wardrobe is chock full of neutrals as well as interesting prints and exciting textures. She’s a pro at making dressing up look effortless and dressing down in sweats fashionable.


How has she inspired me?

Because her Instagram is full of outfits that feature high street brands, she’s shown me that you don’t have to spend loads of money to create a great look.

Her mixing of pieces that shouldn’t work together but do, has given me the confidence to pick things that are more interesting and to grab that printed shirt from the back of my wardrobe and wear it with pride.

Whenever I scroll through her Instagram I always think “I want to dress like her”, she daily reignites my love for fashion and so rather than saving clothes for a special occasion, I just wear them and treat every day like I’m on a WeWoreWhat street style blog post!
