40 Best Fashion Quotes of All Time From Designers and Celebrities

Let’s face it: The everyday grind can be pretty uninspiring. You wake up, put on whatever outfit is clean, eat, go to work or class, eat, come home, do whatever you do to unwind, eat, and do it all again the next day. Sometimes what you need to break free from the mundane everyday routine is a little inspiration—style or outfit inspiration, that is, because you should never underestimate the power of a good ’fit. As Marilyn Monroe is rumored to have once said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”

And speaking of quotes, what better way to motivate yourself than with a few inspirational sayings about style? Keep scrolling for the 40 best fashion quotes from designers, models, celebrities, icons, and more. Once you’ve found one that speaks to you, put it on a wall poster, drop it in your social media bios, jot it down on a sticky note, or get it tattooed on your body—whatever you need to stay inspired not to put on the same pair of sweatpants again (unless sweatpants are your brand, then by all means, carry on).
