Hi guys ! How are you doing today ? I hope you are doing great.
Today I want to share with a couple of outfit I styled up in the last week and I was major inspired but he one and only https://www.instagram.com/brittanybathgate/?hl=it . She is a style icon to me. I only recently discover her you tube channel and I just fell in love more with her. She’s so funny and smart and I just want to dress like her and having her sense of style . We all know I am far far away from that but I enjoy trying !
She often defines her style as a mix of classic and contemporary and I would absolutely agree with that but what really drown me to her style is the minimalist approach and the more masculine or androgynous side of it. I have always loved the more tailored fit and the more classic cut of an outfit but is something I always find so difficult to pull of or could easily go wrong.
In this case the less the better :less pieces but of great quality and since we are in the summer months that means :linen.
I know this kind of outfit can be such a no no for a lots of women or men but as always ,the message I want to always put out and share with you is to always do and wear what makes you feel good and i always thought that to feel sexy I had to show off my boobs or my ass . Getting old is a discovery in every way on how I actually love to cover up and style beauty pieces that make me feel good. I don’t know the psychology behind the pleasure of wearing more masculine outfit and feeling super confident in them but I am definitely one of those people. I am using the term “masculine “just to make me clear and letting my thought be more clear since I am still an Italian girl and I know I make a lots of mistakes still in English but I am not a fan of that term and what it can sometimes mean. Just to clear that.
Let’s roll with the outfits!
I am in love with this short linen trouser by Zara. A s you guys know I made the effort not buying anything especially from the bigger and eco sustainable shop and if I do ,I am making sure they are from the more eco line. This shorts was something I was searching for last summer and never find anything similar. I am not proud for buying them from Zara but they are something I know I will use for a very long time .
I love the rustic vibe of the linen compared with the sleek line of a shirt or a t-shirt .
This pair is a short and classic and absolutely adorable . I LOVE the structured cut and the tailored fit if these shorts and I especially enjoy pairing them with a more sporty vibe such as my nike Cortez and t shirt. I always love to use a very classic piece and wear it down with a more casual element I think is sommxodern and cool. And so easy !https://www.zara.com/it/it/camicia-con-tasca-di-lino-e-cotone-p08211308.html?v1=51041643&v2=1445096
I found this shirt from the Zara man section and I couldn’t resist. I think there are so beautiful and classic at the same time ,simple cut and perfect for this period of the year. I love to exagerate the nerd vibe adding socks and Birkenstock’s or keeping it elegant and cool with my beloved mocassini (loafer ).
I love adding some more masculine touches by adding this belts ,both vintage from dad’s closet and I absolute love them . I don’t know why I was never into accessory and belt in particular I just found them boring but I guess I have yet to find the perfect classic piece.
In contrast of the more floating vibe of the shirts before I also played with a more feminin touch by adding a more sleek and fitted number ,yet still simple and classic like this ribbed night knit wear ,old from Zara . Is super simple and minimalist but I love how sleek and cool it looks.
For a more evening touch ,adding an extra layer of linen is more than welcome in my humble opinion and why not,even if is still soft and gentle ,a little bit of color never hurts nobody and this linen blazer is the perfect piece .
