I think I’m somewhere in the middle. I like classic pieces (denim, stripes, ballet flats) but I’m also partial to the slightly odd (perspex necklaces, polka dot jeans, cat tapestry bags). Fashion would be boring if we didn’t have fun with it, but it’s easy to find your sartorial personality and stick to it. So what happens when you forget who you are and try on someone else for a bit?
I’d been looking for some comfortable-but-cool footwear for walking round New York next month, so when I spotted these hot pink hi-tops on Sarenza.co.uk I snapped them up with my ambassador code. I love them – they are insanely comfortable and the pop of pink gives them a girly edge – but they are so not me. I’m not that cool girl who can pull off sportswear as a legitimate fashion choice or shave one side of her head and totally work it. At my core, I’m a jeans-and-t-shirt girl with a northern accent and a hipster hair do. And I’m okay with that.
But it’s nice to have a break from who you are every now and then. Wearing things that push you out of your comfort zone is a great way to experiment with style, and you might even find something that sticks. I’ll definitely be wearing these babies again!
Do you venture out of your clothing comfort zone every now and then?
