Oops, I did it again. I bought a brand-new denim jacket. Did I need it? Probably not. Was it 70% off? Hell yeah. You know, I recently decided to push sustainable/ethical fashion on this blog. And what did I do? I bought something brand-new.
But I feel like it’s important to show you the process of adjusting from buying fast fashion to slow fashion. For me at least, the transition isn’t that smooth, especially since it’s hard for me to shop at thrift stores now with the whole pandemic. But, this topic is for another post. Right now, let’s talk about how to style a cropped denim jacket.

I started this blog about six years ago because I love fashion. But over the years, I grew disillusioned with the industry. I wasn’t sure I wanted to talk about fashion because I didn’t feel like it was making a difference or didn’t educate people on anything “important.” And after I watched The True Cost documentary a couple of years ago, it completely changed my view of the industry. I lost the motivation to write about fashion and keep up with the latest trends.

Discovering your personal style can be a difficult process. It involves having a deep understanding of your sense of self (that’s my Psych major talking right there..), a great confidence in your own skin and knowing what works and doesn’t work for your body type.
Many people say that fashion is an extension of yourself, an outlet through which you can express your creativity and personality. I agree. We are drawn to specific garments, styles and colours because we are attracted to, and feel comfortable, in them. We choose them because they fit our tastes, likes and visual aesthetic.
After following fashion blogs for years, I quickly noticed how they had their own unique style. Then I started thinking about myself and how I didn’t think I had a personal style.

The silhouettes of the ’40s and ’50s are the epitome of classic and feminine, so it’s not wonder designers today are drawing inspiration from the classic styles of the past. Midi skirts emulate the classic vintage skirts of those eras — feminine, pouffy or pleated, knee to tea length, and high waisted. They are also one of the hottest trends for this spring/summer.
Midi skirts may not be the most flattering silhouette for certain body types. Due to the nature of the skirt and depending on your body type it can either make you appear shorter (due to the length of the skirt) or heavier (this is especially apparent in full midi skirts and also the length). It may not be the best option for those who are short and have a curvy bottom half as a midi skirt may emphasis your shortness and the curviness of your legs, making you appear thicker. Nevertheless, if you’re itching to try the midi skirt, make sure you find one that best compliments your figure.

I have been seeing boyfriend jeans everywhere for the past couple of years, and it doesn’t seem like the trend is going to slow down anytime soon. Personally, I prefer skinny jeans mostly because I am short and I feel like boyfriend jeans would make me look shorter. But who knows? I’ve never actually tried on boyfriend jeans, maybe I’ll like them.
You have to be careful with boyfriend jeans though, especially if you’re on the short side. Since boyfriend jeans are loose fitting and usually cropped at around the ankles, it can make your legs look shorter. The best way to wear it is with a tucked-in shirt and heels, preferably pumps, to elongate your legs. However, you can wear sneakers or flats, whatever floats your boat. If you’re tall, then any type of shoe would work since you’re blessed with long legs.
