Beginners' Fashion Advice
So basically, im here (like most people) to get some real fashion advice.
Iv always been interested in fashion to an extent, however, up until recently, iv mainly been one of those kind of people who the vast majority on here tend to hate , rocking plenty of jack wills, a fair bit of hollister, chinos, cuffed jeans etc. however, recently, while more and more reading fashionbeans and one or two other fashion articles , iv reached the point where i feel my fashion IS just a copy of many many others, and heading in the direction of a wannabe one direction-er (which i must admit, at times, they do look highly fashionable)... so basically, how do i go from this transition, of wearing mainly cuffed blue jeans and converses and a jack wills/hollister top etc with a jacket.. to the type of fashion where i want to be?
out of the pieces i own, someof the things i do really like.. chinos in brown, camel colour, khaki green (albeit cuffed at the bottom), and a pair of blue cuffed jeans and some black levis.. also, a jack wills gilet (its nice!!) , plenty of scarves, and accessories, but far too much fo my upper half is concentrated on heavily logo'd holliste, the occassional all saints and jack wills:( i am starting to develop my own look (got complimented for wearing chinos, a plain black t shirt and a waistcoat on a casual the other day), and have brought some all saints military boots, some boat shoes (for the summer) etc. etc.
SO someone help!?!
iv read all the beginner guides but even some of the basics are too expensive for me:( im just a student whose furiously trying to juggle saving up for univeristy with car insurance, petrol prices, clothing etc etc. so basically i cant spend a lot!
and my wanted list i suppose boils down to these items:
a navy blazer - up to 30 quid ish
some sort of red/burgundy jeans/chinos - up to 30 quid is
a fairisle or some nice knitwear (not too fairisle, i like to keep the patterns fairly basic/simple/subtle)
a grey(or possibly other colour?) cable knit jumper?
a nautical striped kinda long sleeved top
okay, by now i expect 95% of you arent reading this, but any advice in how to make this HUGE transition?! please?!?
and the biggest advice (since im a lazy bugger), can anyone find any of the items i like in the sort of price range im looking for..anywhere !? please help:(
want to try and integrate this new fashion in with some of the old pieces i have (kinda) so im not chucking away TOO much and wasting too much money..
and any helpw ould be HUGELY appreciated.. MANY THANKS !!
