With all of the fashion week hullabaloo and catwalk shows popping up in my Instagram feed, it’s got me thinking a lot about personal style. What it means, the sort of look that gets photographed and what I end up doing. I look at so many of these images all the time, sometimes attempting to put my own spin on it and end up taking it in another direction entirely. The thing is I like to have my cake and eat it, my wardrobe is a cacophony of printed dresses, flat shoes, logo sweatshirts and forgotten denim. I choose the pieces I like based on shape, fabric and colour, using them to influence the rest of the outfit recipe. However I still experience a lot of extreme envy whenever I log onto Pinterest. This is the inner workings of my mind, as illustrated by street style snaps.
The moral of the story? Wear what you like and experiment but don’t force things too much. If those Mom jeans don’t look right, then don’t buy them. Take inspiration yet always inject your own twist with items that you connect with. No worries if you don’t necessarily want to set trends and just want to be comfortable. I’ve stumbled upon this article about a new, anti-fashion trend, which has given me a lot of food for thought. I’m not ready to give up my more obvious, louder items of clothing just yet but it’ll be interesting to see how things pan out over the next few years.
