All things vintage inspired in terms of clothing are not to be missed. Fashion, after all, is mostly about pulling pieces from past decades and transforming it into something new and contemporary. There are also some looks that are so iconic and distinctive that have remained present throughout the years, such as David Bowie, Madonna, Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot… the list goes on. Not only do these people speak to many people on some kind of personal level, but they also inspire one to play dress up once in a while and switch up their look a bit.
Everyone has that one go to outfit that’s simple and easy-going; something to slip on when you’re running late in the morning or have that syndrome of ‘I have nothing to wear so I’ll just wear the standard’. These kind of outfits sometimes tend to be the best and most classic as they define your look and style. It doesn’t have to be much – a simple white t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers could do it. Personally, I like to switch it up when it comes to these relaxed ensembles just for a bit of versatility.
Every season calls for a new trend, and it seems to me that with every season my style seems to change in one way or another. Lately, it’s been about the retro, 70s inspired pieces, which in my opinion, are the best. It’s all about showing some bare skin, the big flare, the puffy shits, and really just trying to live it up like the hippies used to.
I have to admit, I miss Paris. It’s my home, how could I not miss it? When I lived in Paris, I felt that my style was always changing, which is normal since I was still in high school and I was trying to define who I was. I think my style will never be properly specified, but I do know in the direction I’m headed in. Or at least I hope I do. This summer, most of the outfits I wore were simple and laid-back, occasionally adding a hint of minimalism or boho. I always try to balance an outfit by making it effortless yet chic. That’s very nearly the essence of French style, and I find it works well for everyone. It’s just a question of adopting that philosophy. Anyway, I was never one to wear motif T-shirts because I found it quite difficult to incorporate with other pieces. But I managed to keep it casual by plainly wearing a white butterfly T-shirt, boyfriend jeans, white ankle-strap heels, and a red bag for a nice pop of color.
There’s nothing more classic than black high-waisted Levi jeans. You can never really go wrong with Levi’s and for me, that’s what makes it all the more quintessential. They are so versatile that you can pair them with anything you wish: heels, boots, sandals, shirt, cropped top, etc. and you’re bound to look great.
