I have to say that I cannot categorise my style at all. I am not hipster, I don’t wear a lot of vintage clothing, I don’t buy the latest trends. It would be more accurate to say that I am still trying to define my style, and at the moment I just wear whatever is in my wardrobe because I have no need to buy lots of new clothes at the moment. I have previously posted about some of the key items I think are a basis of a functional wardrobe. A lot of these items can be found from all sorts of style books, but they tend to be more generalised options to suit every one. I try to find the exact perfect white t-shirt for me and the right pair of skinny jeans.
I want to wear clothes that look good on me and make me look and feel good. Sometimes it is not easy and I think everyone has those days when you wear something and after a few hours you realise how uncomfortable you are and how it was just a big mistake to wear that outfit again. Also your style changes with time and generally what you wore in your teens is very different what you will wear 10 or 20 years later. I am hoping to find my style that will only change slightly and will be updated occasionally.
I don’t really have any style icons but I admire Emanuel Alt’s style and the way she presents herself. I like what she wears on her but there is generally too much black for me. You can always see her wearing tight skinny jeans or leather trousers and t-shirts and she updates them with statement jackets and shoes. She doesn’t wear a lot of make up and she seems to master the French effortlessly chic look. These are exactly the points why I love her style, she knows what works for her and sticks with it (and she still gets photographed all the time). Unlike Anna Dello Russo who dresses for the press. She does it well and always wears something eccentric but personally I am not really a fan.
At the moment I am in the process of finding what suits me. I am not in a rush because I have the rest of my life to wear those clothes when I find them. It is also an interesting process and I have became much more critical about what I buy and I happy to deal with the wardrobe I have at the moment. Dead Fleurette is always a great source of inspiration for reducing consumption and spending wisely on the items you love and will use for years.
