Need Help Reinventing My Style On A Budget
I'm 18 and right now I'm going through a period of extreme fustration at the moment. I'm desperate to change my current image. The art-studenty, hipster look I've had going for a while suddenly feels immature and kind of conformist, given the amount of people going for that particular look.
I've long had an interest in fashion and I find it very difficult looking at all these great looks and not being in a position (I'm a student) to recreate them. I want to start wearing nice trousers and leather casual shoes in place of my usual skinny jeans and vans, but alot of stuff I try doesn't suit me and I end up looking like I'm trying to hard.
The long and short of this is: can anyone recomend stores, pieces or looks that would allow me to dress current, smart and maturely, but on the budget of your average university student.
Any advice would be very welcome!
