How would you describe your style? Would that be easy for you or would you struggle and say that you are a bit of everything? I have never been a big fan of this question and, being a blogger, I’ve been asked that a few times in the past years. My answer was always that my outfits depend on my mood, season and occasion, but I essentially can (and like) wear everything and it’s somewhat of a mystery to me how I will look like tomorrow. Basically, I could never just describe it with a certainty of a couple of words. And it is ok because fashion is supposed to be fun. But, lately, I started to feel like I’ve been swaying between different styles way too much and you’d think that by the age of 31 I’d have a better idea of who I am (fashion-wise) 😀 And you know what? I think I finally have the answer to that question.
Thinking back, I always felt the most ‘me’ and the most comfortable when I felt cool. You know, a kind of messy hair don’t care, oversized everything, chunky boots and r’n’b kind of girl. I love my elegant heels to be worn with ripped jeans and my classic coats worn with sneakers. I love adding an edge to everything that looks too sweet and girly and that’s when I feel the most confident. So if I had to describe it in fewer words, it would be casual chic and a sporty luxe. It took me a while to remember what I always used to like and to connect with my ‘fashion roots’, but once I did I felt so much better and more confident in what I’m doing these days.
And so, obviously, I wanted to revamp my closet a bit and went on a hunt for some perfect ‘cool girls’ bits and pieces. And it all starts with footwear of course. Ever since I saw the military Yeezy boots a couple of seasons ago they remained on my wishlist. I loved the edginess they brought to almost any outfit and after eyeing them for a while I finally got them from LUISAVIAROMA website. Like I said in my previous post, sometimes it’s hard to remain uninfluenced by the trendy things that are popping up on your social media. Sometimes a certain ‘IT’ thing will be pushed into your sight so many times that your brain gets almost zombified into liking the item (certain furry slippers anyone?). I am so glad that when the opportunity presented itself I listened to my gut and purchased something that is more me and less main stream.
Now to complete the new Yeezy inspired look I also needed to stock up on cool sweatshirts and hoodies. Yesterday I made a trip to a shopping centre and went straight into the men’s department and picked a few perfect basic tops, all in Large or Extra Large sizes to give some real oversized feeling to my outfits. I’m telling you from the experience – men’s clothes in big sizes is the way to go if you are into the whole sporty luxe trend.
Now I seriously feel excited to keep staying true to my new rediscovered self, messy hair and all!
Easy Yeezy guys!
