Stripes. Gray. Beige. Black. This is my November uniform and it feels so good having an outfit that I can wear all the time without putting to much thought into it. So this is on having a “usual”!
Okay, I have to admit that I’m not living stressful life at the moment – there are only a few lectures left to attend at university and I still have a semester to finish my Bachelor Thesis. The rest of my time I spent with friends and working for my blog. University lifestyle, it is 🙂 So actually I have enough time to put more thought into my wardrobe and most of the time I spent in front of my closet putting together a nice look I really try to be creative. But from time to time I don’t want to think to much about fashion and just wear what feels right without any “fashionability check” – so I simply wear my current uniform.
In my case the uniform is always a very basic and minimalistic outfit. It simply has to be a look for any occasion and easy to adapt if needed – like changing the shoes from chelsea boots to heels or trading my cozy oversized baseball jacket for a classy trench coat. I always go for unicolored pieces, classic cuts and only minimalistic prints, ’cause that’s what I pick when going by my guts, which is why I feel so comfortable wearing such outfits. And that’s exactly the point: the fun thing about having a uniform is that your favorite wardrobe pieces make the outfit and there are no rules if it is classy, casual or anything else. Your usual is what you are and if that changes from time to time because you change and suddenly pink is your favorite color instead of beige – it’s okay because this is who you are. One’s style develops, changes, turns around and sometimes even upside down – the style carrousel will never stop and that’s what makes a uniform so special – it is constantly evolving like you, like everyone.
Do you have a uniform or usual? And from your point of view, is this the original “personal style”? Because I definitely think so and would love to hear your thoughts about it.
