Outfit | Subtle
If you ask me, the people I find to be most fashionable and know how to dress best are (apart from that handful that actually sets the trend) those who can take a trend or designer piece and translate it into their own style, translates it in a way that works best for them and not care of what anyone’s supposed to wear with what. I’ve been browsing a huge amount of streetstyle pictures from everywhere the last few days to look for some real inspiration, but I saw a LOT of the same. A lot. I’m not going to make this into a big essay about streetstyle (and who’s being photographed and who not, because that’s probably part of the whole story) but there were a few ladies that did much inspire me, by wearing things in their own way and staying true to themselves. Like Elin Kling, that stands out because of her simplicity in dressing. And Julia Sarr Jamois, who totally didn’t care and wore Nikies (ok, very cool ones) to Milan. I love that woman.
To make a long story short, blogging makes you very aware of how you dress and what you wear and in a way I try to always be true to myself, even when stepping out of my comfort zone. So there you go. There’s this baroque trend going on with all the gold embellishments and extravagance, and although I like looking at it, it’s too much for me. However, you can always trust Zara to give you some options, and I very much love these subtly baroque patterned jeans. A bit better than the average black jeans, but subtle. I have to admit though, some things you see everywhere and almost get tired of can still be totally awesome and I wouldn’t have mind laying my hands on THE Kenzo knit (you should know which one I’m talking about), but I am also very happy to have found this more subtle tiger sweater, with much more options for combining, and I love that you have to come close to see what’s on my sweater. And then of course there’s my favorite bomber jacket, that I haven’t really taken off since I got it. For me, this is mission accomplished. Whether or not you like this outfit, I can truly say that it’s me, and I love wearing this. Even though I don’t think it would have been snapped by Tommy Ton even if I would have bumped into him. Oh, well.
A lot of reading for today, but I really wanted to share a little content on the subject of style. After all, I’m working with it every day and well, there’s so much to say. On that note, I leave you with this outfit, would love to hear how you feel about it and promise to post that street style inspiration soon. Happy Friday!
