Fashion is something I definitely inherited (even though I went through some ridiculously scary anti-fashion phases). I always go through old pictures of my mum and complain about how I hate that she didn’t keep some of the stylish pieces she’s wearing in the photos. They definitely would look absolutely amazing still, 20 – 30 years later.
That’s the thing with classic, yet stylish pieces. They stand the test of time. So when I came across Human Image, a local designer, I resonated so well with the brand because it reminded me so much of my mum’s vintage wardrobe and the clothes she used to wear.
I’ve divided this post into two, focusing on winter classics in this post, and summer staples in the next. I can’t choose a favourite, to be honest (although you will be seeing that parka again very soon!) because they all genuinely feel like quality, investment pieces.
Item featured: blue felt coat with gold sequin detailing
I am genuinely obsessed with this coat. The design feels so unique, yet definitely wouldn’t date. I always look for gold hardware on a coat or jacket because it somehow feels so luxe, so the gold sequin gave me that feeling too. Definitely a statement piece.
KEEPING IT CASUAL
Item featured: White Parka Jacket
I’ve already worn this parka twice, and I only have it for a week. I took it in a bigger size because I prefer these type of jackets to look oversized and baggy. Again, I love the gold hardware because it gives a luxe feel to an otherwise casual piece. I love that this can be dressed up for the evening, or dressed down during the day too.
Item featured: Sequin Black and Gold blazer style jacket
I styled this look relatively casually to keep it more wearable, again with the velvet pants that are still super on trend, however, I would wear this with a plain black evening gown. It’s just one of those pieces that draw attention and make you gasp at the sight of it. Truly a special item that will wear well for years to come.
