So I thought I’d write a little piece about why I acquired such passion for fashion. It all started when I was about 16 or 17, I went to a town where I lived and it’s known for it’s charity shops, so I decided to go into one and have a look. I came across a blazer in there that was going for £4 it was a navy blue blazer that was just so nice so I brought it. This blazer got so many compliments. The outfit I loved the best with this blazer was a stripey black and white t-shirt with my black skinny jeans and a pair of black brogues. Picture to the left shows off the outfit literally after I brought it. This is where my love for fashion really started. After my charity shop hunt, my Nan told me about my Grandad had a few jumpers in his wardrobe that he didn’t want. So I raided my Grandad’s wardrobe and saw the most perfect winter jumper I had ever seen in my entire life. It was far too big for me but that’s one of the many reasons why I fell in love with it. I went straight home and found my black skinny jeans and teamed them up together. People told me I looked so vintage and kept asking where I got my jumper from. It felt so good to say it was vintage and nobody had one like me so I went home later that day and went straight onto eBay and was searching for anything vintage, Ever since then I’m mixing vintage styles with my own twist. I love vintage fashion I think it’s so quirky and bold with it’s own bold patterns and prints, which is why I think it works so well with my fashion sense. Mixing bold vintage jumpers with skinny jeans has always been a classic winter look for me. Throwing on a big chunky scarf over the top to give a layered look and some super shiny brogues or big winter boots to finish the look off. My summer looks haven’t really changed over the years. A stripey long t-shirt with a pair of black short shorts or a statement t-shirt accompanied with a loafer or brogue. However last year I did buy a denim dungarees and this has to be one of my favourite outfits to wear in the summer. Wearing that and a t-shirt underneath just makes me feel so summery, again teaming them up with a loafer or a brogue. Throughout the years my fashion has evolved and become much better and much more refined. When people describe my style 3 years ago it would of been vintage but today they call it quirky. I much prefer the word quirky to vintage because vintage just means something old, something that’s been done before. Where as quirky is a word that means not normal, something that hasn’t been done before. That’s what I love to do with my fashion, do something that people haven’t seen before, wear something a bit daring for a boy to wear like a dungarees of a pair of shorts that are rolled a bit high up on the leg. They’re all cliches when it comes to fashion but I love breaking them, I love pushing my fashion to the limits.
