I do love fashion and trendy collections, however, when it comes to my own personal styling, things might get a bit quirky. Here are three facts of my styling philosophy I want to share with you that most describes who I am and my fashion attitudes.
First of all, I don’t follow the hottest trend closely.
When I see some certain fashion items are so popular at the moment that every one buys and wears, I suddenly feel that I don’t want them anymore and I try to avoid buying those items. For example, this season the hottest items I avoided are tartan design blazer, the fluffy mules and the bamboo and straw handbag. The most important reason is that I like to minimise the chance of having same item as many other people, also I believe that not because the collections are popular, they will be suitable for me, I need outfits that fit me and my soul.
Secondly, I like to re-use my wardrobe.
As you can see, I wear many of my collections repeatedly in my previous blog posts, and each time they helped me formed a completely different style. I don’t believe that fashion is wearing a different outfit everyday and shopping everyday, that is not sustainable. I own this blazer for over 6 years, and I still think it is the best blazer in my outer wear collections. Today I styled it as the only top with a layered skirt and a pair of boots, which is totally different from how I used to wear it. I would like to think that clothes have souls, the more I wear them the more I connect with them and the more their souls are kept alive.
Thirdly, I embraces dynamics and diversity.
I hardly believed that I should set a particular theme for my fashion blog or my Instagram profile, so that I will likely be categorised in a certain market, such as minimalist, corporate style, resort style, or luxury style. The thing is that I not only am obsessed with black and white, but also am passionate about colors at the same time, I am a professional office lady, yet I also love traveling and exploring the world. I love music, art, and quality lifestyle, I constantly inspired by graffitis, hip-hop, street style, art, 80’s, beach, extremely minimal and extremely colourful images. So in terms of my personal style, I really love to use different approaches. Honestly, I have expensive designer items, but I also love affordable brands or even very low price-ranged brands. Sometimes I dress like a hip-hop dancer, sometimes I dress professional like a CEO, I basically just follow my feelings and the occasions. Living in a massively diverse society, and having a lot of inner dynamics, I have more than one roles in my life and that are hard to be completed by only dress in one type of style.
