Who, Why, Wear: A Styling Thought Process

I can’t get no satisfaction

I can't get no satisfaction

 

I confess that i’m not really a fan of Cara Delevingne. But obviously, like every other human being, i say i don’t like her now but at the same time, if she’s in a movie, you watch that movie right? While i didn’t create this look specifically with her in mind, by the time i was done there was simply no denying that “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” was made for her. There are so many shots of her all over the internet leaving and arriving places that it’s not hard to imagine her donning this ensemble while dodging the paps after a night out at a concert.

Over the years of  being in the spotlight, Cara D. has seamlessly incorporated the bomber jacket into her everyday wardrobe while donning one for every occasion in a range of different styles. There’s her sulkily running errands in it, her furtively talking on her phone in a funky printed one, another one with her looking creepy and high af in it paired with Timberlands, one where she’s modeling it all pretty and chic and then there’s one where she does not GAF  about looking good at all. Since khaki green has been making all the rounds lately, i thought this would be perfect because idk catching a Kanye concert with her besties just seems like such a Cara thing to do.

In this day and age, Balmain is practically synonymous with the Social Supermodels that swarm around the brand and designer alike. While the Kardashian clan tends to lean onto the brand for more of their high fashion events, i feel like Cara would be cool with just pulling off the more laidback pieces such as this statement logo sleeveless tee.

But let’s be honest, almost every item in this set screams “statement” from the leggings up to that heavy gold chain necklace.

Fan or no fan of Cara D., there’s no shying away from the fact that she’s definitely got more than enough personality to get away with wearing whatever the hell she wants.

Sreivphol inspired!

Sreivphol inspired!

 

I’ve started a new category on this site dedicated to all my girl crushes. Fuck Wednesday, i’m crushing on them everyday of the week (at least until i come across yet another ethereal goddess to transfer my affections to). So tbh i’m not quite sure what Sreivphol, or “Srei The Human” as she calls herself on instagram does for a living but if i’m hazarding a guess, i’d say she’s a freelance model as she’s done some shots for Agnès b. and SkyHighFlyxApparel and she’s always involved in some form of editorial shoot or another.

Why am i crushing on her?

To be frank, Thai social media celebrities that are frequently on the Popular page with 100k followers (the ones who seem to perpetually be on vacation and have a private jet at their disposal) all have a certain plastic look. They’re all undeniably freakishly good looking and they all know it judging from the 10 selfies uploads a day but after a while, it gets really old with the whole cookie-cutter effect.

Do you see what i mean??

But with this one it’s different. She consistently rocks her own style, whether it’s messy buns, huge retro sunglasses in a nightclub or loud statement pieces that either tie her entire outfit together or clashes against it, either way she just does not give a fuck. Not to mention, she pulls off grills like no one’s business and hate her or love her, there’s no denying it takes a pretty badass person to look as good in it as she does.

Why the outfit choices in this “Sreivphol inspired” set?

Personally, i feel that she looks amazing in fur as can be seen here and here. Wearing a bright fur coat takes a certain level of confidence and guts to leave the house with your head up high knowing that some smartass is bound to mistake you for a muppet. But i think that judging from her social media platforms, there’s really no danger of shortage in those areas and she’d be able to pull of this gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent jacket without a hitch. Also, while her outfits tend to lean more towards statement pieces, a lot of the time she also sticks to the basics when pulling off the latter. But even then, her basics are super extra, hence the usual black denim cut-offs with the leather garters. as well as the 90s tattoo choker with chandelier beads to tie in with the eyelash lace bralette.

To top it all off, Dolce and Gabanna standout glasses because if anyone is going to pull off embellished sunglasses like a profesh, it’s Woman Crush Everyday, Sreivphol. Signing off with words of wisdom from the woman herself:

Embrace your individualism
