The future of fashion has arrived, fellow Fashionistas! I know I can not be the only one completely over the moon for the androgynous 21st century looks. Outfits that have been seen strutting the catwalk of many designers such as Rihanna’s Fenti, Balenciaga, and Vetements have inspired my current styling and perspective. Incorporating styles that you see at latest fashion shows and wearing them to any appearance or class can open the eyes of someone who is not so used to being as fashion forward as you. Let’s face it, we are in 2017 and wearing a button-down shirt is not really cutting edge anymore, or is it?
With weather channels ringing alarms over snowstorms, this Fashionista could not help but to bundle up in her oversize plaid puffer coat before she ran to class. She expressed how she got ready in a snap because she knew the day was going to be busy and chilly. I asked her what inspired her outerwear and we both bursted out “Vetements!” I noticed we both had one thing in common: the same trait of recreating outfits we see on the catwalk and making it our own couture. We compared thoughts of deals we seen on local websites like ASOS, Hautelook and L Train Vintage and gloated about what we racked up on recently. This Fashionista gave me some valuable insight on her outfit thought process, saying, “The key of looking like you ran off the runway is creating a detailed outfit that keeps the eyes curious.”
She described her theme for that day as a Williamsburg, Brooklyn vibe. She wore a hunter green lumberjack plaid that is commonly seen worn by pedestrians walking on the north side of Brooklyn. The cobble streets and burnt red brick buildings complement her layers of green. She keeps warm in her oversize cable knit scarf and tube skirt, that helps brings out the femininity of her outfit. Her style is not one to be compared, but it is one that can be seen on next season’s fashion shows.
