Fashion transcends culture and language; the fashion world is compiled of enthusiasts and experts ranging from places like New York to Japan. Style may vary from city to city, but the cut and sew trends are global. Flip through the pages of Vogue Australia or Büro24/7, and features of American and Parisian designers will curate the thread between the seasons’ most infectious characteristics. A Fashionista/o in London will receive the same information as another fashionable individual in Milan. Ideally, designers are chefs in which the fashion publications serve the masses to feast. You can share the same ingredients with someone, but what you conjure up with them is what separates you and that individual; this is exactly what this London native did.
This Fashionista wears her pleated skirt in a very classic way. A sleeveless button-up tucked into the skirt with minimal accessories is the look of shear timelessness. The color of her skirt is a great shade for any season too. She could wear it with pastel or neon shades and she’s ready for spring and summer, or it could be her winter pop with all black. Her skirt is from Zara and her top is from a place called New Look. But since trends are a global phenomenon, you can easily purchase one here in the States.
For a closet basic, try this Target accordion pleat, or for something a little more funky, slip into this BCBGMAXAZRIA skirt with two slits in the front. This skirt is so versatile and can be a worn many different ways. For a more ’60s festival-inspired look (being that Coachella season is almost in full effect), pair it with this VS PINK Lace Bralette and a chambray shirt. Don’t forget to pile on the bracelets and bring a large floppy to protect you from the sun. Styling this skirt with a button-up with rolled sleeves and a few dainty accessories captures a more casual chic vibe. Lastly, tucking is essential to define your shape.
Although the feast of fashion is exciting, the appeal of the stylish people is what draws us to the event. Trends is what we share, but style is our individual pursuit.
