Keeping up with fashion trends can be exhausting. It may not fit your own style or it might not do well with your mini insecurities. Basically, it doesn’t speak for yourself. And personally, I believe that’s not how fashion works. I may be donning more cropped tops than necessary in this blog but I hope you get to experiment my looks with your own style. Never feel like you HAVE to wear something to keep up because you don’t have to. You really don’t. You only need to listen to yourself and what makes you comfortable in representing your own style. Now, why am I suddenly so preachy? Haha. It’s because this look is not something usual for most people but I love it and I am very much in love with it. It’s definitely not revolutionary but it’s not something you see often (unless, of course, if you’re working in the fashion industry). I would understand if it’s not wearable for most but I would also love to see more people test new waters. How awesome would it be if Philippines will completely accept the unusual? We’d be like Japan. Walking cosplayers are normal. I’d like that. I’d like to wear something unusual and not be stared at. Hm.
Anyhow. Wishful thinking aside, pinstripes anything are my new obsession. I just saw this DKNY Spring 2016 piece and I wish I’m rich enough to own it, lol. Keep an eye for me, eh? Maybe you’ll see something similar a few hundred dollars less.
I, originally, wanted to match these trousers with pinstripes blazer for a Scandi style vibe but I couldn’t find one until I found this weirdly beautiful top. It displayed with a ribbon and I guess I’m supposed to wear it that way but I don’t want to. Not because I can’t make a perfect ribbon (!!) but because a cute ribbon would seem a bit unaligned from the rest of the outfit. I’m quite chuffed that this turn out to be very comfortable and very “me”. How would you describe your style? Let’s talk in the comments below!
