Moving on with my insta outfit series, here’s one I wore a couple days ago. The weather is getting really cold and nasty so taking pics with my iPhone rather than a camera becomes a smart way to create content, it’s less time consuming and hence, I don’t freeze my butt off, lol. I love matching my top with the color of my outerwear, this helps creating a rather solid outfit, that doesn’t have too much going on even when it actually does.
I gotta admit, when I clicked Order to get this vinyl trench coat, I only wanted to pair it with hoodies and I din’t actually think I was gonna wear it often. My boyfriend called it a weird vampire slayer coat, which for me was a challenge to prove him it’s stylish and super versatile. I wore it so many times this fall just to prove him wrong that it literally became my favorite coat ever, it’s warmer than I initially thought and it’s surprisingly comfy. I wish the idea to do this post came to me earlier, I might have shown you at least 10 ways to style a vinyl coat, but we’ll have to do with three.
Denim & Hoodies
Obviously this is the safest option to go with, a hoodie and a pair of your favorite jeans can make the strangest coat look wearable and since I have like a hundred hoodies I’ve recycled this look many times. Also, it’s the easiest way to make everyone around you feel ok about the vinyl coat (a lot of my friends were freaked out at first, haha) but most importantly, it’s my everyday office attire that I love dearly.
All of my favorite fall trends combined in one outfit! I love how berets elevate the simplest of looks, but I have to confess they look way better than they feel on, guess that’s something I have to get used to. Red boots is a trend I was very interested in from the very beginning but I guess I was too picky, so I ended up getting myself a pair just very recently, but it’s the perfect 80’s inspired pair!
As a stylist I often say it’s better to keep most of your outfit basic, and add no more than one or two trends in case you don’t want to look like a victim of fashion. That being said, sometimes I just don’t pay attention to how many trends I’m wearing at once up until I need to come up with a name for the outfit post.
SHOP LEATHER BERETS:
SHOP WIDE 80’S BELTS:
If I’m being completely honest with you, I think it’s more than 5 trends (insert the see-no-evil monkey emoji). Let’s count: here you have a leather beret, a checked blazer, a wide 80’s statement belt, vinyl leggings, velvet sock boots and a wooden bag. That’s six, but I’m not brave enough to admit it. Does that make me a victim of fashion?
SHOP VINYL PANTS:
SHOP SOCK BOOTS:
The thing is, most of my seasonal wardrobe consists of the latest trends, but I’m not a shopaholic, some of these items are new, but the majority I have been wearing for over a year, can fashion victims do that? Anyways, the message that I’m trying to convey here is wear as many trends as you like as long as you know what you’re doing.
A very unexpected accessory, I must admit but one of my favorite Ukrainian brands asked me to style their leather peplum belt and I immediately had the idea of wearing it with something sporty or even masculine. This outfit was styled in less than a minute and I really like how it turned out, what do you think?
Sweatshirt – Opening Ceremony (similar ones here and here)
Track pants – Asos (cool ones here, here and here)
Peplum belt – RICCHME
Sneakers – Converse
Sunnies – ZeroUV
Every once in a while I love sharing with you some of my instagram looks that I didn’t have a chance to take better pictures of. This is just the case for today’s outfit, I enjoyed every single minute of wearing this utilitarian two-piece from NA-KD, but my day was so packed I couldn’t spare more than 3 minutes to take these images on my way to the coffee shop. I really like how they turned out though, the cold background really brought out the color of the co-ord.
