#giyongchy


We all have our role models. Mine appears to be a fairly young man who has slayed the world with his charisma, music and fashion. Because this is a personal style blog, I'll tell you about his influence on me fashion-wise. Honestly, GD has inspired me to go past my "style comfort zone" and experiment with various trends that at first don't really seem to go well together, but the more you look at them, the better they look. A few years ago I started as your average vintage/preppy lover, wearing the so-called "grandpa sweaters", neat shirts, neckties, bowties, plaid skirts... It's still the base of my outfits, but thanks to GD I know that I can break those predictable outfits with edgy elements such as heavy boots, bold jewellery, vibrant colours... The list goes on and on. He's going around in well-fitted suits most of the time, but you would NEVER call them boring because of all those prints and accessories.
As for today's outfit, I decided to pay a direct tribute to him by this custom sweatshirt with a hashtag "Giyongchy" - or a mock name of his fave brand Givenchy he uses in his music videos (you can see lots of merch with Giyongchy logo on Asian street style blogs). The rest is just my humble rendition of his comfy airport fashion, a contradiction to his polished on-stage look: leopard print, bits of gold, combat boots, giant fur hat... I know that my outerwear might not look as fabulous as his, but I'm not even trying to kid you that it's warm enough to take an off-coat shot.

Leather pants


If you've ever been/are a fan of comic books, manga or just any show and you've never been obsessed about any character in leather pants, you're probably not that much of a fan as you think. Just kidding. After the mentioned obsessions leather pants have been on my wishlist for a long time but I've never actually got around getting them (not enough money, not the style I want, not Mello enough)... well, till last week when I spotted this wonderful pair in a Vero Moda outlet. These pants are absolutely perfect in every possible way (as opposed to my legs in them but let's not go there). I know, I know, I was supposed to tone down everything I wear with this faux fur coat, but I couldn't resist pairing it together. The shirt and sweater vest have a college feel anyway, so I hope I'm kinda... justified...?

You can never go wrong with preppy


Let me introduce you the best coat ever... in my opinion, of course. It's warm and cozy, but also badass and over-the-top, so you need to be careful not to overstyle the rest of the outfit while wearing it. I couldn't resist adding another pattern, though, but to tone it down a little bit, I decided to keep it preppy. After all, you can never go wrong with preppy, right? And because my version of the college look always needs to have that interesting edgy twist, I spiced it up with combat boots and accessories, such as the flashy headphones I got for Christmas, bear-eared beanie (that isn't too obnoxious, phew) or a large skull-shaped ring. In the end, it came out kinda Harajuku-ish. Not like it's a bad thing, though; I've been obsessed with this kind of style for many, many years.
