Cutting it a little fine as always. I was trying to finish a Nelly.com lookbook which had maybe…one look I liked in it, so I gave up and went for navy and neutrals.
I really, really liked some of the things in this Subcouture release. I also bought the black tie oxfords ($12) and the super high white heels ($13). They are both probably my favourite pieces of the collection and hilariously I’ve not included them in this. Shoes are generally pretty easy to slot into a wardrobe, so I decided to focus on the other pieces on offer.
The items I went for, in my opinion, are the pieces that form the foundations of a classically fashionable and timeless wardrobe: the lightweight floaty jacket, the statement coat, the modest nude dress, the menswear-as-womenswear dress etc.
To finish, when I’m really pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptably reinterpreted, i.e. a dress as a top, oversizing scarf etc, I am a firm believer that sheer guts alone makes it work, even if the execution isn’t perfect.
