Over the past few years, I’ve gone through the journey of finding my personal style. Like most people, this journey has involved exploring several style identities before discovering mine, which I best like to describe as minimal with a luxe touch. While I’m first to admit that I have by no means reached style nirvana, I’m at a comfortable place and can easily walk into a store and identify which pieces fit and don’t fit my aesthetic. This means I generally stay away from high street shops like Forever 21 and Zara where it’s easy to fall into the abyss of trendy, of-the-moment pieces. I instead choose to invest in high-quality, seasonless pieces that stand the test of time.
Since my mom has been in town, I’ve find myself debating with her over which camp is better, having a trend-heavy wardrobe, or a downsized wardrobe comprised of great pieces. I’m of course a strong advocate of the latter, but I’d love to hear from you guys, which camp do you fall into?
