Colours of the Wind

If you haven’t seen my Instagram photos, then you are missing out! Follow me @knyfortaleza

I am not so proud of myself for doing more colours now as I have always loved colours. Like what everyone says they are proud of themselves for wearing colours, like because they always wear black. *cringe

But having said that, It is truly true that prime colours are making their way to the top of the colour wheel again. I mean there’s just gotta be more than black right or grey?  Thank God!

Neutrals #OOTD

It was about time to post something on my blog. Just in time for Halloween. I know cobwebs and spiders have invaded my blog! Lol. It was a long time coming. Starting again was pretty hard to be truly honest. Nevertheless, I am back!

Although at some point I have been stuck with black ensemble, I am originally an earth tone kind of guy. Particularly, drawn towards brown tones(like always). Almost all my bags  are brown. My style inspiration comes from different social media influencers like David Guison, Drew Scott.

I love juxtaposing dapper/formal with street/casual. Tucking in your shirt creates a sort of more put together look. Also, adding a belt can break up your look from looking too street style.

The raw edge jean trend has been everywhere. I took inspiration from Steph and Mel of The Fashion Citizen(Youtube). Just simply hack off the bottom of your jeans and let it fray or do interesting distressing on it. Currently, starting to create my own take on the raw edge distressing. Also, these Puma laces are quite long so You could tie it around your ankle for some extra street style punch.

In my experience, when I don’t try too hard on my looks it gets even better than I imagine. I love how this look turned out. I hope you did too!

Yes to Yeezy

I have a thing for earth tones specifically brown. It still has been my go-to color for my outfit choices and accessories amongst others. I’ve been comfortable wearing khakis and beige brownish over tones from top to bottom. Now, when Kanye West introduced his collection Yeezy Season 1 which was dominated by these colors, it really got me excited. It has that easiness and relaxed look which is on trend right now. He really knows what’s up.

The androgynous look of his collection is quite spot on. It’s very versatile and could readily translate to menswear which is kind of genius so say the least. I am getting Japanese minimalist look with his collection which is my style grind right now. I am digging Japanese fashion. Damn right, I love just the look of not really getting too dressy and preppy but has that coolness and sophistication.

Although our dear Tim Gunn might have threw some shade on Kanye and his recent dabble with fashion and also the Kardashians. I reserve him the right to his opinion. In the first place, he is a professor. He who knows fashion can have that critical opinion. In the words of Mr. Gunn, “When it comes to fashion I say to people all the time, if you want guidance for your fashion just consider this, if a Kardashian is wearing it — don’t.”

I just love Tim! He says it straight out.

But I thought that Kanye is just capitalising to what is now. Basics are a big trend so. That was easy, Yeezy? But, I am a basic human so this sells really well to me.
