What are you wearing today?
So today I’m wearing a beautiful checked blazer from H&M, a classic white blouse from NA-KD, the softest faux leather pants from Mango, super ugly (but cool) sneakers from ASH, and I also have my university bag with me because I came straight from University. I’m studying fashion communication and marketing here in London.
What’s your signature style?
I would describe my style as casual-chic, and sometimes playful. In the winter I prefer knitwear such as this soft neutral one from & Other Stories, it’s super cosy and casual. Another item that describes my signature style is denim from Levi’s. I cannot get enough of their denim. A favorite of mine have a kind of boyfriend style, and feel very comfortable – they have such a good stretch. I simply love them.
What style tips have you picked up since moving to London?
Since moving to London my style has changed significantly. I’ve started wearing a lot more fancier items. For example, this amazing check print coat – I really love it. I love the neutral colors and the fit is so nice. I’m also wearing much more fancier shoes – I love snake print boots more than anything right now. Snake print is THE trend this season, I would say. I really love it.
Any tips for not losing your heritage style when moving abroad?
It’s very important to feel comfortable in your own clothes, that’s why I would never go without a checked blazer like the one I’m wearing today. I just feel so comfortable in it. They look casual but also chic and go with absolutely everything.
What’s your favourite trend this season?
I absolutely love layering this season. Layering looks so cool and is suitable for every occasion. I found this amazing white blouse on eBay and I wear it with ALL my layering looks. Also – I love ugly sneakers this season, they’re super cool and comfy. Big thumbs up for those!
Top 3 winter essentials?
My top three essentials this season are comfortable and cosy sweaters, teddy coats and beanies. This sweater is from & Other Stories – I love it because it has an oversized fit and it’s so cosy. Beanies keep me super warm and look extremely cool. I love this knitted grey one from Acne Studios – it’s a must-have this season.
Top tips for adding high-end pieces to a high-street wardrobe?
High-end pieces always add a special something to outfits. My latest obsession is this light pink cross-body bag from YSL. It perfectly fits within my wardrobe and looks lovely with so many outfits. It’s the perfect addition for winter, as well as for spring.
