Styledbyemashley, Be Inspired by Her Style.
Meet Emily Ashley but most people call her Em. She is a 29-year-old influencer and content creator as well as being a qualified commercial stylist. In her own words, 'I love all things fashion and I have an obsession for heels!'
PLEASE TELL THE READERS ABOUT YOUR CONTENT, WHAT IS YOUR THEME?
'My content is everything style-related, I love a clean white aesthetic, I think I have a little OCD when it comes to my feed, everything has to match, and you can see this if you have a look through my Instagram. I never meant for it to be that way but I love feeds that have a theme, as it’s so aesthetically pleasing to look at!'
HOW DO YOU CREATE AN AESTHETIC THROUGH YOUR IMAGERY?
'I actually use an app called Preview so I can see how my feeds going to look with a certain image before I post it on Instagram, I usually play around with it before I’m happy with how it’s going to look. I love having a neutral background, I think it just helps everything look tidy. My favourite colours to wear are usually whites, greys and nudes so you don’t really see many colours on my feed unless it’s from the outfit I’m wearing.'
CAN YOU GIVE THE READERS SOME TIPS ON CREATING A STRONG AND COHESIVE INSTAGRAM FEED?
'I think just play around until you find something that you like! I find if you’re picking a brightly coloured feed you have to be really picky when putting your outfits together to make sure everything matches, that’s why I usually just say go for a white/neutral background as sometimes having a feed that looks a certain way can limit your creativity. At the moment I’m loving the homemade sheet studio! It’s perfect for taking any outfit image against!'
YOU SHARE A LOT OF FASHION INSPIRATION, WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO PIECES?
'JOGGERS! I love joggers, a couple of years ago when I first saw Kim Kardashian wearing joggers with heels I was like .. okay are you sure?! But then I bought my first pair and wore them with sock boots and fell in love, it’s comfy and cute, you can dress them up or down, I literally live in them!
Other things I think everyone needs in their wardrobe is a good pair of light-wash mom jeans and a white strappy bodysuit (that’s like my go-to on a Saturday) cute for summer with a pair of mid-heel mules too!'
WHAT FASHION TRENDS ARE YOU LOVING CURRENTLY?
'I’m currently really into the 90’s vibes! I was quite young the first time round but I remember wearing tie-dye, I’m really feeling anything 90’s/early 2000’s style like baguette bags and bandana crop tops too! I also love loose-fitting sweat shorts and white chunky trainers for summer at the moment.'
YOU ALREADY HAVE A BIG INSTAGRAM FOLLOWING, WHERE DO YOU WANT YOUR INSTAGRAM TO GO IN THE FUTURE?
'This is such a tricky question because 3 years ago I had like 8,000 followers and I thought that it was going to be just that and that’s as far as I would go on my influencer journey, I feel very blessed to have gained so many followers and to be able to work with so many amazing brands. I think my main goals are to just see where this will take me, keep working towards building a bigger following and hopefully inspiring people to just feel comfortable in their own bodies.
I would also one day love to collaborate on a clothing collection with a brand like Pretty Little Thing or Missguided but who knows where this will take me!'
