On The Street // Men’s Fashion

On the hunt for some individuality.

Hey there! How’s your Tuesday going?

Mine’s pretty good. I woke up to a cold and foggy morning and I find that exciting. It’s really rare to have Melbourne covered in a blanket of fog.

I met someone new at work today.

I had one too many slices of cake during our record week celebration.

I treated my body to some exercise, had a small dinner, a warm shower and now, this.

Yesterday, I had the urge to seek out street styles that portray the wearer’s individuality. I wanted to look at men’s fashion because the internet is saturated with metallic skirts, silk blouses, Chloe bags, block heels…

So here’s a representation of men who, in my opinion, dress to their soul’s satisfaction.

Work of Art [Series #3]

Here’s the last of the series! I’ve seen people wearing corduroy button up skirts but no one really paid attention to corduroy shorts. To show this piece some love, I styled it with prints, lace and accessories with intricate details. What do you think?

On The Street // Men’s Fashion

Happy Friday!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll notice that I mainly focus on women’s fashion. But my love for men’s fashion is growing. I look for styles that are unique but also aesthetically pleasing. An odd piece of clothing or accessory is fine, but I find myself gravitating towards smart casual, minimal styling, and well-structured clothing.

Here are some snapshots of stylish men roaming the streets of Europe. Enjoy!

Wearing What’s On Your Mind

Everyone has their own puzzles to put together on a daily basis.

What kind of dresser are you? Do you pick an outfit 5 minutes before you head out or do you spend hours planning what to wear the day before? Does the weather app decide if you will show up in a maxi dress or in a combination of sweater and jeans?

Whenever I see a stranger or a friend wearing something unique, loud, mismatched or just plain simple, this question automatically comes to mind: What were they thinking?

“I have a feeling I might bump into someone important today…”

The Other

A disruption in a world of replication and the norm, Jenny Mustard stands out by listening to her other being.

She used to be a drifter. She wrote her own vegan cook book and created her own clothing line – MIND THE MUSTARD – so that she could express her unusual taste in fashion. Although MIND THE MUSTARD has been discontinued, her style never ceases to impress those who long for something out of this world.

Here are my 7 favorite looks by Jenny Mustard. I hope you like them as much as I do!
