Playing with Length

I believe I’ve come to one of the most interesting stages in the natural evolution of my personal style. Now going into my 30s, there’s an appealing balance between a more mature side, a personal trademark slowly refined throughout the years…and a more experimental, irreverent one, which age not only allows but motivates as well. The sheer amount of influences and inspirational sources I’m subject to on a daily basis, be it through constant research or my surrounding environment, sets the ground to an open-mindedness in what regards incorporating new elements into my attires.

One of things that I found a growing fondness for is introducing unexpected pieces, usually taken out of context and revamped to match the rest of the look. In the case at hand, this piece is a long white tunic, seen here layered under a grey melange sweatshirt and paired with a camel peacoat, grey trousers and black boots. Layering doesn’t necessarily need to be focused on texture and pattern alone: length plays a huge role which can be used to elevate the outfit to new standards. Here, there’s a mix of polished and relaxed garments that seamlessly makes the unusual length blend in…
