19 Apr Style Inspiration: VANS
Hey guys, on today’s blog post, we’re talking Vans! I’ll be sharing style inspiration on how you can casually style your vans (or any other causal sneakers) and look fab!
I challenged myself to wear my vans everyday to school for a week i.e Monday to Friday. I missed Thursday cos I had no reason whatsoever to go to school, so I’ll be sharing 4 looks with you.
P.s I had to deal with a lot of stares as people do not dress up to go to school in these parts. Although I styled my vans very casually, my classmates were looking at me like “Hello Ma, where exactly are you going to?”😅
I wore a midi A-line skirt with a polka dotted shirt which I tied in front to make it cropped and that made it more stylish.
Skirt: Shop Maju
I love oversized clothing and stuff from the men’s closet. Here I wore my favorite oversized vintage shirt (that my friend gifted me) & grey joggers with line details at the sides which are all the rave right now. I really love this look!😍
Top: Asos (men)
I wore and old print dress I’d forgotten I had (I love when I find old gems) with denim pants. I like the dress on trouser trend and I think that this is a good way to pull it off. It could also work with palazzo pants or culottes!
Dress: People’s Market
This is probably my favorite of the four looks! I wore a straight maxi dress with a peplum top, added a slim belt for extra effect and bam! A look!
Dress: Mr P (at Ikeja Mall, Lagos)
Top: Mr P
Tip: your local thrift store (aka O.K, aka okirika) has gems waiting for you to find, plus you get to save tons of money!
And it’s a wrap! Which look is your favorite? Which would you wear?
I think this should be a monthly style column on the blog. I’ll pick an item and style it for a week! What would you like me to style next month? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
Love & Light!
