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!

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!
