Style Diary: What I've Been Wearing Recently
Hey everyone! I decided that I would start a new series on the blog called the "Style Diary" as a way to show you what I've been wearing recently. All of these outfits are on my Instagram, but posting them on the blog allows me to go more in-depth about the trends and styles I've been loving. I hope you enjoy!
The Best Piece I've Ever thrifted ❤️💈
This jacket is by far the best piece of clothing I have ever thrifted! I am newer to the thrifting game, but I have gone thrifting several times since I got to NYC in August 2020. My favorite thrift store is L Train Vintage. There are a few different locations, but I bought this Giants football sports jacket from the Brooklyn location. It is a blue and red jacket made out of a nylon material. It has logos on the front and back and also has a hood. It has the perfect pockets which hold everything I need for whenever I don't want to carry a bag. Not only does it look so dope, but it keeps me really warm, so I layer a light jacket over the top for the winter months as opposed to wearing my big The North Face winter coat on top. L Train Vintage sells other jackets that have a similar style, so if you are on the hunt for fun jackets, I highly recommend checking out L Train if you live in NYC.
2. Combining Two trends 🤎
With these pants from Jaded London, I was able to combine two trends: patchwork denim and brown. Patchwork denim has been super trendy this winter and has been one of my favorite trends of the season. Although Pantone named yellow and grey as the colors of the year for 2021, brown seems to truly be the color of the year. These jeans combine the two trends through patches of brown and neutral-colored denim being sewn together. These are the Jaded London Brown Patchwork Denim Boyfriend Jeans.
3. The Viral Pants 🖤
The black vegan leather Melina pants from Aritzia went Viral on Tiktok for their great fit and incredible versatility. I had been on the hunt for a good pair of black leather pants and these were the perfect buy. They are so soft and comfortable. I can style them with almost anything and they look perfect with boots, sneakers, flats and heels. The fit is also amazing. I styled them with a grey pearl sweater and white collared shirt. I also added my favorite Dr.Marten white platform Chelsea boots.
4. The Glossier Hoodie 🎀
I had been wanting the Glossier hoodie for months and finally decided to buy it in January. Not only is it adorable, but it's super soft and comfortable. It has the perfect hoodie fit. If you're looking for a super cute and fun hoodie I highly recommend getting this one.
5. Houndstooth 🦋
A pattern that I have been really loving this winter is Houndstooth. I got this adorable Houndstooth sweater from @shopivorybelle on Instagram. It is so soft and is such a beautiful shade of blue. I went for a monochromatic look when styling this sweater.
6. The Viral Zip-UP 🤎
Another piece of clothing that went viral on TikTok is the oversized brown Christy hoodie from Brandy Melville. The hoodie is made with the softest fabrics and is so comfortable. It has the perfect oversized fit and can be paired with any outfit. If you are looking for a good quality zip-up, I highly recommend getting this one.
