"Dress normally" is a phrase I rarely use in my vocabulary. For me there are so many exciting things to try in fashion than just settle for anything conventional. I guess I am tired of conventional because Ive been there.
Despite that there are so many ways on how to dress, all mapped in a specific name like: preppy, punk, skate, bodycon, 80s, etc. I prefer to go beyond the context of these looks and create my own fashion vocab. I think its more fun don't you think? If the most influential designers can do it, why cant we the fashion folk?


In this look I simply took out the old notion of how a varsity jacket should be worn. Instead of wearing it casually with t shirt and jeans why not wear it with tailored pieces? To offset the formality of the shirt and pants, I chose whimsical touches like the x styled scarf, the spiked bowtie, and metallic sneaks. To add more quirk I wore it with my rounded specs to blur the lines between student/professor/geek/professional. To stamp the look I wore my personalized coif.

to have that pouf or coif you simply need a good hairspray. extra hold is necessary to keep it in shape. try elnett!:) it works wonders
