Style is an interesting thing. A few yeas ago my style mostly based on simple clothes, lots of black and white and some edgy flare. I felt myself the best in these, I thought I found it. I found what feels truly me. But the equation is never so simple. Sometimes you need more, sometimes you need something different, sometimes you need just plain comfort.
I always kept my eyes open to trends and they always affected me. Not everything though, but what I felt suitable to me for some reason. Now I wear a lot of vintage (style) blue jeans, I have now a houndstooth blazer, denim skirt and pale pink dress . And red loafers too, who thought?
My style haven’t changed that much though, I still prefer combining these pieces with simple or edgy items, but now I like playing with more, adding some extra to my looks. Like the Gucci or Vetements phenomenon for example.
I do it most of the times. When I’m in the mood. Because sometimes it’s still good to be back to the good old, trusty, comfy basics. Like a pair of black skinny jeans or black and white Converse. Actually, sometimes nothing can beat the good old basics.
And these (in every sense :() grey, gloomy, rainy days need good old comfort. Something familiar. And lots of black. I like black but it’s rare that I wear it head to toe. Usually I prefer a white or creamy tee or knitwear, but this time I needed black and some grey.
I bought these jeans and scarf last year, after we had arrived here. It seems the same mechanism was working back then too as everything I wanted was a pair of good skinnies, despite I really really wanted those perfect vintage Levi’s too.
And the Converse is the same story. I don’t wear it all the time, but sometimes it’s so good to have it. These are my second pairs because I wore the previous ones to death. 🙂 The black and white color combo is my ultimate favorite.
I put on a simple old black tee, my again same basic category leather jacket and a big scarf for even more comfort and felt myself instantly better. Because sometimes the well known comfort is all you need.
