Hello! Jenny here. I hope you had a nice week. Today I want to talk to you about style. How did you find your personal style? Were you inspired by fashion magazines, street style, the nature, your friends, your parents or maybe movies and music? I remember one summer, when I was 7-8 years old, I was so excited by fashion, that I created a whole schedule of different types of clothing combinations I was going to wear every day. I just loved experimenting and being creative and I guess I loved dressing up.
As I grew older, however, I started feeling the need to conform and admired what other girls (the cool girls) in my class were wearing. And the same thing happened when I started reading fashion magazines. I was never happy with my own style. It’s not until I actually started university and moved to a bigger city (Copenhagen) that I started experimenting again. The more I tried out, the more I learned about who I was. Today, I think I have finally found the forms, colours and materials that I feel comfortable in and that is a great pleasure. But having said that, I also love looking at other people’s style choices and getting inspiration from cool, independent women with unique style (the ones we often see at Garance Dore and the Sartorialist). Here are some of my favourites, I hope you like them!
Whose style do you admire?
Have a nice weekend and see you next week!
