Relaxed is the new fit

The perfect combo in styling and in everyday life, I thought was fit and comfort. If an outfit doesn’t fit very well then it probably won’t be comfortable if that makes sense. But an outfit that is comfortable and stylish at the same time is definitely a killer. Who wouldn’t want to be almost wearing nothing? (like not what your green mind thinks) *winkwink.

One of the current trend rn is the relaxed fit. Although, I can still see body fitting silhouettes. The relaxed fit is making a come back in a subtle way. I kind of gravitate towards the more fitted most of the time. However, there are clothes that just sits in your body very well and won’t leave you like a hanger. I’m loving this fit right now.

The first outfit is my favourite. This thrifted Armani Exchange top is one of those diamond in the rough finds I managed to score on my last thrift trip. The material is cotton, so soft and lays very well on the body. I love the drapey look it gives. You could actually turn it into those trendy off the shoulder tops for womens, of course. Also, been wearing these Navy blue shorts non-stop from Forever 21 that isn’t too tight fitting. The length of it makes me look slightly taller. Accessorised it with my Triwa dive watch, that I also really adore! I thought it made this look expensive than looking like I just got out from bed.

This second look is pretty straightforward. I bought an extremely soft knitted jumper at the thrift. I was so lucky to find this for 5 bucks! It was from a premium UK knitwear brand that retails for at least 150 pounds. I just tucked it in and put on my Yeezy’s. I tried to look like Rihanna or other celebs who just stepped out of the bed and just put on random clothes they could find on the floor with a bit of hangover and looked extremely FASHION. It’s not like I wanted to look like them. But I love that feeling of putting an outfit without too much effort and that turns out so well.¬†FullSizeRender 4FullSizeRender 3

New Look

Athleisure trend is in. Let those sneakers shine and tailored pants out of the closet.

As of late, I have been trying to achieve that athleisure ¬†streetwear look that has been going around. I am enjoying ¬†pairing formal pieces with sneakers. It kind of stirs the too serious look into a more cooler and wearable outfit which doesn’t have to be more of an office attire. An excuse to get those good pair of slacks from the closet.

Trying to achieve the easiness and relaxed vibe. It was a comfortable outfit to be truly honest. Not constricting. Still with enough room to move.

I rolled out the jacket’s sleeve to break the boxiness of the jacket quite a bit.

#OOTD: Uniqlo Navy sweater, Cotton On tobacco brown slacks, Vans slip ons, AND the star of this look is the Thrifted vintage Levis denim jacket with an extra interesting bleached out pocket detail that made me really get it even if I have to shell out $25 for it. Super expensive for a thrift store! But I just could not resist. And the jacket is not the usual button up, it’s like a bomber jacket which I still don’t have. An interesting addition to my growing collection.

It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I just want to share what my current state of style is like. In the end, we still get the decision on what to wear whether we dress up for an audience or just plainly for ourselves. But, just be yourself. You’ll be fine.
