I’ve never been one of those people who are all up to date with the trends, I struggle to even wear a matching outfit half of the time and I couldn’t imagine creating a wardrobe for each season. To me, fashion is individual and reflects our personalities, to what I think is one of the best things, ever. Somebody else might hate. I have always been a girl who loves to wear black, but weirdly I love pink too, anything pink hmu. I have featured a variety of alternative fashion on my blog, including a wishlist of alternative shoes and many shop my style posts. But today I thought I’d delve a little deeper into my fashion choices and share with you what trends I want to see more of this year as well as my fashion influences. Hopefully, you enjoy this post and let me know your fashion inspirations in the comments.
From as long as I can remember (when I was allowed to pick my own clothes) bar the short ‘chavvy’ faze I went through in year 8 where I may have worn a Mckenzie jacket and large hooped earrings as well as a pair of trackies on occasion. I followed the style choices of the alternative people in the bands I loved. Hayley Williams from Paramore is the main idol in my early teens (she still rocks it now tbh), along with the ‘scene’ models all over My Space (throwback) and my internet friends too. It was all about backcombed hair, ripped jeans, band tees and converse. This a faze that stuck around for a while, and to this day I still love converse and wouldn’t be against wearing band tees again. I quite enjoyed this style, minus the fact the majority of my life at this point was in school uniform.
After this, I moved onto the more ‘edgy’ styles within in the rock/ pop-punk industry and I took inspiration from Taylor Momsen, I went for the fishnets with the tees style, boots and lots of eyeliner. Oh and my staple leather (fake of course) jacket which was pretty much in every single photo growing up, I wore the chokers and the red lipstick and dyed my hair a variety of colours and I loved it and I have to say it is one of my most confident periods. Once I started to realise wearing something more covered up would be better (and warmer) my style became a little bit of everything. Mostly based on dresses with boots and long tees and leggings, I enjoy to wear more skirts and even add some more colour to my palette which to me is a big deal.
