Dress: H&M Trend
Fashion is fun – at least that’s how I see it. I love trying new things, getting experimental and mixing stuff, being someone else every day. One day I’m girly and retro, the other day I wear sporty sneakers and look rather casual. Actually, I don’t know how to call today’s style, it’s definitely a crazy mixture: sheer body, casual dress and suede sneakers with a metal toe cap. It’s not a typical Lu style but I totally love it, even though it’s been hard for me to wear sneakers with my dress. Gosh, I think whenever someone asks me about fashion faux pas, I always mention white boots and pairing sneakers with dresses – but normally I mean floral summer dresses, at least this one is pretty minimal and therefore not THAT bad, right? And even white boots can look pretty cool, depends on your style and your attitude! ;)
So, how did this happen? I wanted to find something different for my sneakers – I fell in love with them the second I spotted them online. Actually, I love sneakers, I just don’t really like wearing them, I think they don’t look that good on me. But there are so many wonderful designs – like this one. That’s why I wanted to give them a special “setting”. :)
I also wanted to style the dress in another way – you’ve already seen my Kardashian version → here, very feminine and curvy, so today it’s totally casual. Since it’s pretty cold already, no sleeves were no option, and with a jacket the dress looked totally awkward, don’t know why. But I had the idea of wearing a body underneath – with some special sleeves. On top, I found this hat from my grandmother last time we visited my parents and thought it was pretty cool, and it made the outfit complete.
I think it’s really something different, especially if you know me and my looks, but that’s the point: be creative! That’s what fashion is for. It’s okay to stay in your “comfort zone”, it’s okay to prefer flattering clothes and it’s okay if you don’t want to get crazy, but: it’s also okay to break out of your “comfort zone”, it’s okay to say “eff flattering” and wear whatever you want, and it’s absolutely okay to get crazy. There are no rules, no limits, no actual fashion faux-pas. You’re free!
