Analysing 5 Personal Street Style Fails, Because Everybody Makes Mistakes
Ready to walk down fashion week memory lane and cringe a little with me as I look at some of my not-so-good looks?| March 7, 2018
Going for fashion week is like going for a series of exams. Like the crunch week of the semester. If you don’t prep for it, you panic at the morning of the paper and then it’s the domino effect from there on out. In fashion week terms, the prep is the look, the paper is the show. While I typically plan looks well in advance so I don’t overpack and so I don’t panic in the morning of shows – sleep is a rare treat during the Milan and Paris stretch – sometimes, I find myself short of looks, or I change my mind, or the weather suddenly decides to throw tantrums.
That means conjuring looks very close to the show day, or even on the morning of the show itself. Panic, panic, panic. When you panic, you make mistakes. Of course, not all of my not-so-great looks were the result of panic – some were just because I styled them terribly. Heh. Hey, I make mistakes, too!
So, for the sake of laughing at oneself and proof that finding your own style takes time and that what may sound like the greatest idea four years ago may be absolutely cringe-worth now, I looked through all the looks I wore across the four years of attending fashion week and plucked out the five above that uh, need a little bit of fixing. Scroll through above to see how I would restyle each of them.
