I’m on. a. video. ROLL!
I’ve always struggled with fashion content as, while I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I’m wearing and what I love, I loathe the idea of telling someone else what they should or shouldn’t wear. I want to share inspiration and continually challenge you (and me!) to consider what where we place our bucks. Are we buying because it’s hot on trend for the season? Or Will this piece be an investment that will become a staple in my wardrobe?
I filmed this with the help of my sweet friend, Eva In The City who I can’t thank enough!
LOOK 1: WHITE T & JEANS
Can’t go wrong with this classic combo, am I right?
I used to prefer a men’s medium t-shirt but, these days, I opt for the women’s crew neck from Uniqlo U. The weight of the fabric is perfect and I go true to size.
As previously mentioned, my denim of choice has a high rise and straight leg with a light wash and some distressing. I find that the higher rise is better for my waist/hip/booty ratio. I’m also entirely over skinny jeans. Perhaps I’m a snob, having worked across heritage and contemporary denim brands but BEAM. ME. UP! One thing I will say is either invest in the absolute perfect pair of jeans or buy vintage. Denim is in the top 3 polluters in the world. We don’t need 30,000 pairs. We know which fits tick our boxes. Stick to that and love your jeans.
Ah, kitten heels. You can probably tell that this style still has a ton of momentum and my 33y/o knees are thankful. They dress up any outfit for sure.
LOOK 2: SUNDRESS & GRANDAD SANDALS
I honestly live for a nerdy sundress and sandal moment. This dress is an oldie from Uniqlo U but any dress with a long, A-line shape will do. Teva’s - or “Air Moses” as like to call them. The shoes that reminds us of our Religious Education teacher in Summer is now on the foot of many a fashion “influencer”. No shade here, I’ve had mine for years and have worn them all over the world - they’re perfect for the beach. Whilst I love a luxury take on things, Teva’s are actually super affordable. If you were interested in a fancy pair, try to hunt down a pair from the the Teva x Area New York collaboration from AW18.
LOOK 3: TONY SOPRANO & PAULIE WALK INTO A MARGIELA STORE…
Listen. If you’re not following @sopranosstyle then IDK what you’re doing with your life. Between Tony, Paulie, Uncle Jun’ (basically me) and even Carmella at times, there’s nothing that compares. There’s something about a shirt paired with a trackpant that raises even my own eyebrow but, somehow, it werqs (U BETTA!). I’m also a fan of a boot in summer and these pants are really long so…………..
LOOK 4: SLIP SKIRTS
Bright colour and pattern? Well, damn, alright den! But really though, it’s nothing to be intimidated by. It’s never worth overthinking these things. My shirt is from Dave’s New York - the only store that I make a point of visiting every time I’m in NYC. The Vans that I’m wearing are from the Goodhood x Vans collaboration last summer - a gift for my part of the campaign. I’ve owned many pairs over the years and these are, by far, my favourite.
What will you guys be wearing this summer?!
