Emma Watson’s Fashion Tips

Don’t call her Hermione Granger. Former Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson has blossomed into one of the most promising actresses of her generation and, thanks to her unique style, a fashion icon. Growing up in front of the camera hasn’t always been easy, but Emma managed to survive it all with grace. She first showed the world she wasn’t a kid anymore when she chopped off her long brown locks and adopted a pixie cut. These days, she’s showing off her enviable range as an actor in edgy films like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, in which she plays a teenage outsider. The fashionista has been out in full force promoting the film, and she’s made us as obsessed as her with her personal style. Here are some of our favourite Emma Watson style tips.

Don’t Be A Slave To Trends
“I don’t follow trends much, because I don’t like to dress like everybody else,” Emma insisted to Seventeen Magazine. “I think that’s why I hate trends, actually. But I do like to read fashion magazines so I don’t feel so isolated.”

Invest In Some Items That Get Better With Age
When Harper’s Bazaar asked Emma what item in her closet she would never throw out, she responded: “My old school satchel. It looks better the older it gets.”

Don’t Over-Accessorize
“I’m not big on jewellery and accessories,” Emma said to Company Magazine. “I feel most beautiful when I’m wearing something quite simple that’s understated and cut beautifully.”

Embrace Your Unique Style
“There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point,” Emma told Teen Vogue. “You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are.”

Understand That ‘Sexy’ Doesn’t Mean ‘Less Clothes’
“I find this whole thing about being 18 and everyone expecting me to be this object… I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing,” said Emma to London’s Daily Mail. “If I do a photo-shoot people desperately want to change me – dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt… have a look at everything I’ve got’? My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.”
