Style is fluid. It ebbs and flows; trends come in and out. Our tastes change as we experience more diversity. I know that my taste in style and fashion has evolved probably more than I even realize. I have more recently had my interest piqued by more street style casual looks; which, if you had known the younger me, would be almost blasphemous (hint: I would NEVER have worn anything like this). You are all witnessing the embryonic stage of my street style.
Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others. - Anna Wintour
These words by Anna (she only needs one name - we all know who she is) really resonate with me and what I'm trying to accomplish here. My style may not be your style; it is unique to me but identifiable to you, the reader, which is why you look. My style evolves and so will yours. That's the fun part - you always get to tweak and reinvent your style. Fun for me is trying something new, like street style.
My initial introduction to street style was actually pretty recent. A colleague of mine was very passionate about it and through his guidance, I became interested in the style. It was like a butterfly emerging from the cocoon; like the eyes of a newborn doe opening for the first time. It reminded me of fashions I had seen in my youth but with a modern twist. It was an opportunity to expand my style palette; one that I felt I needed to take.
For this look, I chose to use a knit I had picked up recently. It is a black multi knit that is almost crocheted in fabrication, with a wide neck opening and rolled edges on the sleeve and bottom of the piece. Paired with it are some black moto denim pants, rolled, to make room for the stars of this shoot. I'm referencing my footwear of course - these little guys are what inspired this look in the first place.

This was a fun outfit to put together. It's interesting to try new things and I hope that it inspires you to find something new to try. Don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone; growth never occurs there.
Until next time,
