I’ve talked about the fact I’m not in Milan this season – FOMO – and about my love for red (boots), but we haven’t talked enough about New York Fashion Week. Reason for this is mainly the lack for time and manpower to got to all shows, events, and presentations AND update my blog at the same time. Nonetheless I keep you up to date on every social media channel I handle, so this look must be somewhat familiar to you… I’m sure you have seen this sweater coming by on Instagram, if it wasn’t on me, then perhaps on someone else, because fact is, it’s very popular. So I did a little “Vetements x Champion” investigation during NYFW… to figure out if spending a three number figure on a sweatshirt is worth it…
The scary truth is, it is… Of course, there are budget friendly options out there too – which you just have to buy a few sizes too big for a similar effect – and it’s a great option if this one is out of your reach, but boy did this sweater grow on me. If it weren’t a case of creating daily fashion inspiration for you, I would live in this one… every single day it would be me and my red sweater with a pair of jeans, and a funky low heel. Key with wearing sportswear inspired looks, that you find a balance. A pair of sneakers would not be wrong, but to keep it fashun I suggest a classic kitten heel works great. In fact, Vetements would not be Vetements to cover this part too, with their latest and exclusive to Net-a-Porter Manolo x Vetements collection!
But in any case, on a budget or not, a sporty x classy look is the way forward, and I’m surely going for this more often as it feels like the perfect way of dressing for me. It’s comfortably, inspiring, and still on-trend.
