Athleisure: (not)sports wardrobe
This style is already fit to call not athleisure (athletic + leisure), but athcasual or even athbusiness. Elements of sporting style are so firmly embedded in the wardrobes that there…

Good — this is new

I will succumb to the magic of simple headlines. “Orange is the new black”, “pants are the new dress”, “Zara is the new Dior”. The latter is ridiculous, but you try to distinguish between fresh advertising campaigns: this is a recognized problem of the industry, and it is not that Zara shamelessly copies designer things, but that top fashion houses can not imagine anything that would be radically different from Zara, and at the same time successfully sold not only to elderly rich ladies who knew the great Monsieur in their youth.
Well, did you find 10 differences?Go on. The image in the title and the image below are it-girls from the online magazine H&M, dressed, respectively, in H&M:
We used to agree that if you take the average temperature in a hospital, then, definitely, a more expensive wardrobe has a better chance of looking modern and cool than a less expensive one. But here we fall into several traps, which in the end, instead of correct optimistic conclusions, lead us into mistakes and discouragement. The “either black, or white, or no” rules almost never work in life. Either a Prince or an alcoholic. Or a beggar — or the Queen of England.Happy woman or company Director. Choose from these two, the third is not given. Needless to say, all this dialectics is only good for breaking songs intended for performance by drunk tearful voices far after midnight. In life, just given not only the third, but also the fourth, eighth, and even the fifth and a half. What matters is not the average temperature in the hospital, but individual nuances and details.

The important details are as follows. First, the mass market has learned to sew extremely well. Secondly, the quality of artificial materials is steadily improving (so you do not need to jump back in fright from any polyester at all, if it is pleasant to the touch and the thing from it seems to you successful). Third, our choice is wider than the choice between a goose down Park for 2000 euros and a Park of unknown things in “Yours” for 2000 rubles. The first is expensive, there is almost no hope for the frost-resistant qualities of the second. But Adidas also sells parks. And many other companies (first of all — sports, as they devote time to the development of warm and cheap materials). Fourth, most people don’t know how to dress. Desperately. Totally. I don’t need to look good every day, and then rushing, in desperation, tearing at her hair, trying to dress up “about” and to join “the best”, not knowing whether to run to the beautician to do a facial (first time for the year), whether at the Mall for the “evening” dress.

Therefore, a person dressed in the right things, which are harmoniously, non-banal and relevant to each other, is already a person dressed expensively. Let him at least all the clothes will be from second-hand and H & M. And even the notorious bags and shoes that “should” be expensive. They shouldn’t. Yes, they are more pleasant, easier to choose, they can serve for decades, who argues. But if you don’t have money for premium brands, you can always find a cheaper option. Bags do not look “under the skin”, and choose fabric, plastic, take originality (in a good sense), and not expensive materials. As often as possible, wear fashionable and affordable sneakers instead of unfashionable shoes from “people’s” stores.

I dress very cheaply, honestly. (A side effect-I spend a lot of time on it). Probably, I can be assigned the status of “the Cheapest dressed fashion blogger”. Which from new York brings not 4 suitcases from Saks Fifth Avenue, but a skirt from H&M for $ 15 and Slippers from Forever 21 for $ 30.

Skirt and Slippers:

But for the last couple of years, I don’t have a feeling that I’m not at ease if I suddenly left the house in the morning in jeans (Pull& Bear, 2500 rubles., t-shirt (found in my husband’s closet, the brand and price are unknown) and those pink fur Slippers, and in the evening I suddenly had to go to an expensive restaurant. Because I have perfect jeans and a t-shirt, open-mouthed Slippers, a manicure, a pedicure, a clean, well-cut head, a light tone on my face, a pair of jewelry on my hands, a good-looking bag. Well-groomed, modern harmony (that is, not in the forehead “red with red” and “evening dress with evening shoes”) and a little shocking at the expense of some detail like the same Slippers or huge sunglasses. This is enough to look cool, expensive, fashionable. And don’t spend a lot of money on it. Now fashion is not just for the rich. Fashion for everyone who is interested in being fashionable.
