Street style is one of the most popular parts of fashion, I think everyone knows that – but street wear is a completely different thing. It’s a culture that emerged from skaters and that’s found almost anywhere now, even in haute couture. When it comes to everyday looks, I like mixing it up and incorporating various styles; it makes them a lot more funky and interesting. Doing this with streetwear brands is even more fascinating because certain products from brands have a specific meaning and personality. It’s a movement that gaining more traction, and what better place to celebrate that lifestyle than in NYC?
Who needs a top when you can just wear your silk scarf instead? This is something I would wear on repeat over the summer when I got bored of my closet and wanted to switch it up a little. The versatility of your mom’s or grandma’s everyday silk scarf is one of the best things to have in your wardrobe and I rarely want to leave without one.
Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.
Experiencing winter in NYC isn’t always the most enjoyable. Anyone who lives there can say they are blessed by a snowstorm each year. The first few moments where the snow sticks to the ground, making everything look peaceful and enchanting, are indeed delightful. However, once the snow turns into slush in a busy city like New York, it ain’t so pretty anymore. There’s a constant struggle of not really knowing what to wear to avoid getting your clothes dirty from all the mush, and especially trying to jump over it in the sidewalks.
There are things that can’t be imitated or reproduced the same way old things were. There’s so much history to be found behind an ‘antique’ creation, sometimes the past of it can’t be retraced, which makes it all the more special. It leaves a lot to imagination – who wore this item before me? Who adopted it as their own? The story could be decoded in a million ways, but you will never really know unless you have a sort of testimony. Most importantly though, is the emotion and feeling of the product that has been carried along with its story.
