You are probably reading this blog because you are a fashionista or you are my Mother, but for whatever reason you have stumbled across this, know that not all of us need to follow the fashion trends of the season to look fabulous. I’m not sure exactly how Helena Bonham Carter does it--maybe through Witch Craft, an unlimited budget, or the power of being married to Tim Burton--but no matter how absurd an outfit may look, when it is on Helena Bonham Carter it somehow looks just right.
Whether she is putting feathers in her hair, wearing hoop skirts, or teasing out her curls she is somehow still looking stylish. The reason: she is Helena Bonham Carter. She is a true example that if you wear something with confidence you can’t be brought down. Yes, maybe it’s from last season, or it is not exactly what the majority of the population is wearing, but if you like it, wear it. There is nothing fun about heading out to meet friends and running into someone wearing the same outfit as you, but if you embrace your style and have just as much fun with your outfits as Helena Bonham Carter does, I promise you that you will never have that problem.
In the picture provided, we can see Helena Bonham Carter in a rarer state than when she is on her off time. With her name on so many titles now-a-days, it doesn’t seem as though she has any free time, but here is Helena’s version of a causal Saturday outfit. I personally love it. The oversized combat boots, military jacket, long and flowing paisley scarf, wool hand warmers and a vintage, clutch sized purse work well together. With multiple colors and patterns, many people stray away from the outfit saying it is too busy, but as we can see here, Helena looks thin, stunning and quite put together.
Helena Bonham has defined her own sense of fashion that we can’t prove or disprove at being fashionable—it just is. She just is. She may have her low moments of fashion, as we all do, but you will never see her disregarding her own taste for what Hollywood finds popular and that in itself is what makes a true fashionista.
