Can one wear too many layers of clothing? Never!
Being the owner of my vintage shop ‘Madseventies’ has given me the opportunity to play dress up, style garments, describe and sell.
Depop app itself, has grown immensley in the last two years, with more sellers to the app. With more people selling (which is a step into the right direction to help our planet) means simply working harder, finding ways to make your brand even more desirable but most of all, staying true to what your brand stand for.
As a lover of fashion, I have always preferred more of a masculine style, and this comes from years back, raging through my dads wardrobe trying on his suits and making all kinds of knots or tucks to make an oversize shirt look stylish. So the times I get most inspired is during London Fashion Week Men’s which has been recently. And I am very excited to incorporate some of my favourite runaway looks into my shop as well as my personal wardrobe.
Exciting things are happening with Madseventies and all will be revealed soon. But for now, I thought I share some of my favourite looks from fashion and week and talk on how to work that into your daily looks.
The first look is inspired by the amazing John Lawrence Sullivan AW18 collection. Its all about the well tailored trousers, cinched-waist and detailed shirts. So I’ve paired up a pair of vintage leather trousers, with a 60’s high neck top, pullover knit, oversized leather jacket and of course a pair of fun kicks and fire socks to break the-all-leather-look.
In my second look Ive taken inspiration from the fabulous Ann Demeulemeester’s AW18 collection. Totally in love with the layers, different textures and patterns perfectly styled together. I’m wearing my pinstripe suit, layered with a gorgeous silk skirt, cinched with double belts and a leopard print bucket hat to clash patterns.
I’ve really enjoyed Alex Mullins AW collection. Im all about men’s trousers, oversized blazers with patterns to create depth. So in my third look Im wearing oversized olive green trousers, Dolce and Gabanna shirt layered with a striped roll sleeve and a chocolate pinstrip blazer. Ive added a strapped sandal and glitter socks to soften the masculine look.
And onto my last look. Mochino AW18 collection. The statement boots, the boxy jackets and bold patterns I could not resist. So I paired up a vintage boxy suede jacket with slim leggings and killer patent knee high boots. Ive added a sheer blouse with ‘sleeves for days’ to create movement to the look.
All these inspired looks has been styled with pieces from my Madseventies shop. As much as I (and maybe you) would love to wear a lot of these runaway looks, its just not possible budget wise, but that shouldnt stop you from taking inspiration from the catwalks and all walks of life. The fun part is create your own style and be comfortable with it.
