Five Fashionable Things

The funny thing about fashion: there's an abundance of diverse styles and ways of wearing certain garments. Often, many versions of a "complete look" are exact ways that you may have worn them yourself years before or even decades ago.

I remember being a teen and finding, (what I thought at the time were) the most magnificient trousers to pair under my worsted wool maxi skirt. All of this fashion sense was not nearly because I was having a trendsetting mindset, however now that I think of it, well it may have been. No, it was primarily because I was sort of a tomboy and did not want to wear my long skirt at that time.

Fast forward to present, and Quelle surprise! Androgyny now speaks boldly in the fashion world. But, as a blogger you already knew that, right? Your too cool for school "it girl" style (at least in your world) will soon be parading streets that have not just one name ... but a following. Who cares if you're a big city gal or small town princess, or if it's on trend or not! I just wear what I love, sometimes it falls in line with what's happening and other times like these it's a simple recycled look, only modernised!

Unabashedly "making it work" is a skill and an art, especially when you know your style well. And, let's not even talk about if you throw on a pair of patent oxfords, vintage, and statement jewellery! Oh, wait, I had you at "it girl," didn't I!

To honour the union of my tomboy and ladylike style here are five things that I would presently wear. It's fashion comfort basics with a sharpness of tailored delight! Ironically, it's also five garment elements (above) and wicked styles (below) that I have worn many times before as a teen sans the lace, if you can believe that! Of course, today I would naturally gravitate to this more polished approach, as technology and textiles are far better nowadays.

Lastly, take a look at the beautiful AW/13 campaign images from My Theresa. It truly spoke to me and had me remeniscent of my fashionable youth and custom stylings.

Do you wear any fashion elements from your youth? How do you make it work today?

  4. These are gorgeous. Love those shoes :)) I still wear elements from my youth, like leather jackets or brogues. Although, the style of them has changed since then. Trousers definitely have as well, I hated them growing up - even though i was a tomboy, because they never made them long enough for my legs and small enough in the waist for my tiny waist. But, now you can get jeans and other trousers in all the measurements you want without having to go to a tailor like you would have had to back then, it's definitely nicer, even though I rarely wear trousers now - although I love leggings. This was super doll. I hope you have a great start to the week :) xx

    Your approach to style is always polished and impeccable.
    One of my favourite androgynous outfits is the dinner jacket and trousers that belonged to my grandad. I have to belt the waist tightly to stop the trousers falling down, and pretend that the slightly shorter leg length is intentional, but I do love it.

  11. I'm in love with that Carven sweater, Madison! Unfortunately, I don't really wear anything from my younger days, as I really had no fashion sense what so ever then. Thank God for school uniforms:) I do still have my prom dress. Does that count? It doesn't fit me, but I keep it for sentimental reasons.

  12. Hi Madison! I still wear some garments from my youth, I kept the ones I loved most (for example a very old dungarees) and to make them work even today, I try to match them with the current trends. Love the Asos shirt and the MIu Miu shoes, the Mytheresa campaign is beautiful! Have a great week ahead dear, kisses! xo

  21. Madison, I haven't incorporated anything from the 80's into my wardrobe. HAHAHA Not even splashes of neon yet. I love to see the past infused into present and future designs. I feel it all evolves. I love what you said, "I just wear what I love". That's the point! More people should do that. I'm finding out that Europeans do that more than over here in the States. I like that. Over here, it's too much about what's IN then we move onto the next thing. Lots more originality over there.

  57. I love your story about wearing pants under your dress--I did the same in high school although god knows it must've looked pretty hideous, haha. I still wear lots of stripes, red and navy, sort of a messy preppy for life I guess.
