Mixing multiple styles in one outfit



I'm a hybrid, meaning I'm a mix between two different ethnicities, two different cultures. I'm bilingual, hence why my blog is written in English and Japanese, and also why I can understand both Japanese and American culture better than some. And ever since I've started living in Japan, my style has changed significantly as I continue to incorporate more and more Japanese trends and style with my California style.

So with that said, this OOTD is a mixture of different brands, styles and trends. The J Brand collaboration jacket from Comptoir des Cotonniers is military chic, with a clean silhouette that accentuates the waist. The Adidas by Rita Ora top is quite sporty on its own, but since the color scheme is similar to the jacket, I was able to tone it down with the jacket and the skirt. Skirts are the epitome of femininity, and this fringed denim skirt is a huge trend this season. Instead of shoes or sneakers, I thought a pair of dainty suede sandals would add an element of chic to the outfit. And along with military and sporty, I just had to add a touch of California style with the palm tree clutch and zeroUV sunglasses. 

Style is personality, and personality is style. Creativity in fashion is endless, so have fun with it!

私はハイブリッドなんです。というのは、2つのエスニシティのミックスでもあり、二つの文化のミックスでもあります。バイリンガルでもあるので、だからブログも日本語と英語の2カ国語で記事を更新しているし、日本とアメリカの文化をそれなりに理解できていると思います。日本に住んでから、私のスタイルもどんどん変わりつつあり、日本のファッションをカリフォルニアのファッションに取り入れています。

そこで、今回のコーディネートは様々なブランド、スタイルとトレンドのミックスになっています。コントワのコラボレーションジャケットは、ウエストラインを綺麗に見せるミリタリーシック。Adidas by Rita Oraのトップスはそのままだと結構スポーティーなのですが、ジャケットと同じ色合いなので合わせやすく、フェミニンに着こなすことができました。スカートはどんなスタイルでも女性らしいし、今季のデニムフリンジトレンドを取り入れてみました。足元は、シューズやスニーかよりかは、品のあるスエードのサンダルをチョイス。そして、ミリタリーとスポーティースタイルに合わせて、カリフォルニアスタイルのクラッチとサングラスは欠かせません!

スタイルは性格を表し、性格はスタイルに導く。ファッションでの創造性は果てしないので、楽しむことが大切です。
