Outfit No 5 of VOGUE’S 10 New Ways To Wear Denim, According To The Autumn/Winter 2023 Runways…
Episode 3 ACCORDING TO VOGUE
I shopped my wardrobe for this Diesel Autumn Winter 23 look that was featured in the 10
New Ways to Wear Denim British Vogue article. This look is simple but with some very subtle details, like the slim fit sleeves and fluted cuffs of the knit, the slightly piqued shoulder and set in sleeves of the wool blazer and the split hem on the skinny jeans, it looks polished, classic and elegant…all whilst apparently styling a “trend”.
As someone who is so intrigued by fashion, style and trends (and in my humble opinion these three words are not synonymous), a really good outfit for me is one that expresses or shows an understanding of all three.
Admittedly there are trends that I won’t wear and don’t want to wear, because of my own personal preferences. When I do incorporate a trend into my outfit I still want it to feel classic and true to my personal style, because as I am getting older, how I want to dress and what I want to express with my clothes is changing and conspicuous fashion doesn’t appeal to me in the same way it once used to.
Nowadays it’s far more important for me to understand the material and the craftsmanship of a blazer perfectly cut for my shape and style; single breasted, set in sleeves with a tailored fit, than it is to express my love for fashion by dressing conspicuously .
That is not to say I don’t appreciate luxury fashion, but it has to be personal TO ME and not for everyone else… (well as personal as it can be when doing a job as outward facing as this)…
I guess what I’m trying to say is, simple details can speak just as loudly as flashy fashion… it’s just a different language.
