Inspired By: City of Bones + Sponsor: Jewelissima

Set in contemporary NYC, an ordinary girl named Clary Fray  discovers she is a descendant of Shadowhunters, half-angel warriors who protect our world from demons and creatures of the night. After Clary's mother is kidnapped, Clary joins forces with the Shadowhunters and realizes there's more to our world than she realized. 

Despite the beautiful language and intriguing story the book left me disappointed, but I'm still interested in seeing the movie and how it translates into the big screen. 

Clary Fray
Inspired By: City of Bones (Clary Fray)

Clary (Lily Collins) is an teenage girl whose life in New York City is ordinary until she sees something she shouldn't be able to one night while out at a night club with her best friend, Simon. She was raised by her artist mother and Clary herself is an artist, drawing her emotions in a book. 

For a day out in New York City, layer with a blue anorak, red plaid shirt, graphic tee, jeans, pink stud earrings, and pink Converse. Or if you want to look more bad-ass, go for a black lace dress, quilted leather jacket, knee high boots, and a cool clutch.   

Jace Wayland
Inspired By: City of Bones (Jace Wayland)
Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) is the mysterious Shadowhunter Clary sees kill a demon at the night club. He is loyal and witty, was orphaned at a young age, and is the best Shadowhunter his age. Go for an all-black look with a black t-shirt, moto vest, jeans, and shorts boots. Or for a lighter look, wear a lacey blue button up, distressed jeans, blue sneakers, and gold jewelry. 

Simon Lewis
Inspired By: City of Bones (Simon Lewis)
Simon (Robert Sheehan) has been best friends with Clary for ten years. Kind and loyal Simon has been in love with Clary for years, but she is of course completely oblivious to the fact. Simon also strongly dislikes Jace.  For a professorial look, wear a beige blazer, pink tee, jeans, studded watch, and floral sneakers. Or instead wear a chambray dress, blue cardigan, blue ring, and gray sneakers. 

Isabelle and Alec Lightwood
Inspired By: City of Bones (Isabelle & Alec Lightwood)
Isabelle and Alec Lightwood (Jemima West and Kevin Zegers) are siblings who have grown up learning how to be Shadowhunters with Jace and who have fought alongside him. The siblings are uncertain of Clary and don't like her at first, wary of how it might change their dynamic.

To dress like Isabelle, go for a faux-leather front shirt, black jeans, a layered necklace, and black wedge boots. Or you can dress like Alec by wearing a lace top, moto vest, cargo pants, and lace-panel boots.

  6. I saw this yesterday. I will definitely use the style in the movie as outfit inspirations. Loved when Isabelle helped style Clary

  7. No, I haven´t read the book, but I´m in love with the styles which you created for Clary and Jace, because I like it really to wear such cool denim looks! You inspirated me so much, many thanks <3
