Coachella’s around the corner, which means, naturally, that I’m on the lookout for new garb. When it comes to music festivals, packing a ‘minimal fuss’ wardrobe is essential. The weekend should be about fun and friends – not about being in a frenzy over which shoes to wear with your overalls [yes, I said overalls ... I'm elated by their timely comeback].
My hunt landed me at Reformation: the brand you can’t help but love for the easy, breezy silhouettes and eco-friendly fabrics. Their Thug Life jacket had me at hello; modern military with the iconic phrase boldly tatted on the back. A jolt of sustainable sass, this piece is a keeper; rain or shine, festival or no festival, I will wear. Proudly.
Sometimes when I awake, my hair resembles something like a Hi-top – curly and wild, but a Hi-top nonetheless. This phenomenon, in turn, makes me wonder, what ever happened to the Hi-top? Why did it go out of style? Is it ever coming back? Most fashion trends from eras past often reemerge with a modern twist; so, imagine my surprise when I saw the pic above of the young man wearing the Cookie Monster tee and his larger than life ‘do. Playful and chic, his look harkens back to the late 80s/early 90s but with a new, youthful essence – one that may inspire a modest growing of the hair. Perhaps not quite as tall as Play but at least giving us Fresh Prince.
The Rihanna x River Island Collection is here – feeding our healthy obsession with the über chic fashion icon and exacerbating the level of fixation that much more. Cheeky and bold, the pieces are surprisingly more wearable than not; separates, accessories and shoes for everyday that make a statement without exuding too much sex appeal. Her style is evident, from the bright hues and stripes to chunky emblems – Rih is in every stitch.
I bring you, below, my selects. Practical but never prudish:
Tokimonsta‘s voice puts me in the ultimate trance – a trance that makes me begrudge leaving my apartment for the real world. This is my jam for those restless nights when I’m trying to work, get focused or just center. #Play&Repeat
