I hate to say it but fall is just around the corner and the truth is that I’ve barely started to think about what I’m going to wear this season. For the first time in my life I’m not following trends in fashion magazines like I used to and instead I’m relying on street style inspiration from the wonderful world of Instagram. Some faves are currently @lornaluxe, @brandonduvall, @dustincarrington and @jetsetjustine. Mainly though, I’m relying more on what I want to wear and not necessarily what’s trending. What I want to wear right now is what the boys are wearing - slim pants, white sneakers (like Brandon) and button up shirts done up half way (a la Dustin). With these stylish men in mind I threw together my leather Mackage pants and my favourite Brandy Melville muscle tee. I wrapped my denim jacket around my waist to break up all of the black and add in some texture. My boots are Isabel Marant, from last year and they’re probably one of my best scores from Ssense. The bag is Alexander Wang and it’s called the Trifold. When The Outnet stocked it in patent leather, I didn’t think twice about clicking the buy button. All of the pieces I’m wearing were bought in the last couple of years, illustrating exactly why it’s so important to buy for your personal style vs. some shitty trend that will just come and go. So with that, perhaps I’m more ready for fall than I thought. With a little bit of inspo I can have a new perspective on my current wardrobe and make it feel new(ish).
