Like The Cool Kids

When it comes to fashion favorites for the hip and stylish, the trending factor isn’t the only thing that warrants purchase. Granted if you ask a sartorially savvy person some of the best items to work into a capsule wardrobe, one that contains staple items that never go out of style, the answer would probably take into account the following questions.

Is it partial to pairing with a plain white T as it is with a printed sheath? Is it unabating in couture and caliber with both modern flair and old-school charm? Replete with bicoastal sensibilities adorned by sleek avant garb-clad New Yorkers and the golden damsels of LA?

In essence a few nouveau pieces fit the bill  — a striped T, black skinnies, ankle boots, and of course, the classic denim jacket.

What I love about the cult favorite denim look is how light and comfortable it is without compromising the “cool factor”. Whether thrown on over a short-sleeve shirt, perched atop the shoulder, or wrapped around the waist, there is no shortage of street-style cred with its crisp coloring and nonchalant edge.

So was my choice today when I wore this crop denim jacket while trolling through Streeterville. Everything from workwear detailing to traditional fit to pale undertones make it spiffy and fun (not to mention keeping my semi-brittle bones intact).

To play up this street style look, I wore it over a navy striped shirt (oh the feline fun) and kept the bottom in the same color family with a blue/black/white mini. And because the color was erring towards monochrome, I added a purple clutch for that au courant pop of color!

Ah the joy of Fall — pumpkin latte slurping, layer upon layer strutting, and fun mix/match pairing!

  1. Great post! I love all the questions you asked and the answers were spot on. All the items are timeless and translate well into multiple fashion scenes 🙌😘🙌


    • Thank you Annie!! I hope you find your ideal one soon! Where do you like shopping in BKK? Mine are Central Ladprao and the entire Siam Center/Paragon district. Hope you have a great evening girl! And yes, pumpkin latte does sound dreamy, might need to find a cozy fireplace to enjoy it to the rim 🙂


      • ohh ladprao is great for shopping!! they have like EVERYTHING lol but i rarely go there cos it’s kinda far.. i’ve been shopping at mega bangna a lot recently though. it’s less crowded than siam area and still has all the brands like zara, f21 and what not 😛 hehe


      • Ahhh that’s great to hear! I’m so out of the loop lately I’m not sure there was a mega bangna when I was there! I remember seacon square was a delight back in the days because it’s so big and less touristy cuz it was on the outskirts (and there’s this really nice floral garden next to it). But getting there was a pain because of the traffic! lol~ 🙂


    • Hi Elle! Glad you liked this outfit post dear and yes Vince Camuto really nailed it in the shoe department! For my nails I’m wearing the Revlon Parfumerie polish in Violet! Have you tried that line before? I truly love the colors and finish! 🙂

  2. I’m wearing Vince Camuto right now! His shoes are soooo comfortable.
    Brilliant to add the purple clutch with this.
    It’s adds more to the contrast of strips, leather and denim.
    Great look Lena!


    • Thank you Tiffany glad you liked this look! I think big, bold accessories are great accent pieces and would be spectacular paired with neutral palettes or ones that resonate with the color scheme! Have a great one and looking forward to more of your travel adventures! ❤


  3. I love the pop of color with the clutch you picked Lena. And, I LOVE the jacket too! I have one just like it. You’ve inspired me to pull it off the top shelf of my closet. I’m going to go get now and put it out for tomorrow. I think it might actually be cool enough here in Florida. 😉
    xo, Maria


    • Hi Maria! That’s awesome can’t wait to see your OOTD with it! I feel the same way when I look at other fashion blogs and it makes me realize I have the same top/bag/pants and it’s time to take it out for a spin! And how glad to hear the weather cooling down a bit in Florida! Time for some layering fun! 🙂

    • Hi Prudence! Yes it definitely is, and I love how it can be dressed up with a fitted sheath or dress down with some flannels and dark pants for that edgier look. Thanks for your lovely comment girl, much love!


    • Hi Natalie thanks for dropping by and your lovely comment. I feel the same way as my shoulders are wide for my frame so I’ve learned to choose longer styles and soft, unstructured jackets that de-emphasize the shoulders. I hope that helps! And thanks for your thought on this! 🙂
