The first style inspiration I ever made for Sexy Style for Joe was called „how to dress like a bad boy“ and in it, I took a photo from pinterest of a guy in stylish outfit, then deconstructed and explained the outfit. That article sucked.
First, I was borrowing someone else‘s photo to make a point. I didn‘t even know who the owner was to give proper credit.
Second, explaining someone elses outfits doesn‘t give much creative freedom and you‘re bound by what you‘re able to find online.
To address these issues, the second generation of style inspiration articles were created. And probably a lot of you found this website because of them.
You know what I‘m talking about – a collage of photos of clothes. And yes, while this approach addressed the copyright and creative-restrictions problems it had a different issue altogether – you couldn‘t see how the clothes actually looked on a person. Oops.
But today we have our first 3rd generation style inspiration article. With outfits on a real human being (yes, I’m real), and very few creative restrictions!
You see, since I started working in digital marketing full time earlier this year, this site was no longer responsible for covering my bills. So now I can just reinvest everything the site makes into making better content. Which is awesome.
This means that you guys made this article possible and before everything else I want to thank you for it! This also means that if you have ideas how we can improve this series even further, please don‘t hesitate and let me know via e-mail or in the comments below.
(And yes, in case you‘re wondering, I do have a vision how the 4th generation style inspiration pieces should look like, but we‘ll get to that someday in the future. Probably.)
