“Disorientating, mind blowing, brutal, fun, surprising, longlasting and freaky, Berlin is probably the best clubbing city in Europe”, berlinclubs.com states. With this thought in mind and a serious nostalgia, probably caused by the serious hangover after last night’s night out, I was ready to unleash my inner little techno curiosity and decided to dress up as I would attend a techno party- still, in my own characteristic and slightly bohemian way.
Well, since I am not in Berlin due to my family’s hysteria over the Corona virus outbreak, I tried working with what I have around me and thank God that, for once, I was inspired by the cold, damp and gloomy corners of Bucharest in my search for the ultimate edgy part. Although Bucharest may seem a stone-cold, dirty place, it is not barren at all. Bohemian places are at every corner and there is a little bit for everyone- and even such dusty, abandoned-like corners have their charm.
Therefore, inspiring from the aesthetics of the city, I wend for a slightly industrial look, starting with a pair of large, leather trousers, for the ultimate techno result. I then went for a little bit of colour with this plaid orange shirt, over which I added a vintage Levi`s denim vest. Instead of choosing a pair of boots, as everyone would have expected, I rather opted for a a pair of black shoes, that made a good contrast with the rest of the outfit. The final touch was adding a beret, which I so like and I marked my waist by adding a belt with a Harley-Davidson inspired buckle. My old Guess leather jacket made a good pair with the trousers and drew even more looks towards me, that made me cringe like nothing before, but.. I loved it!
What stylistic zone are you trying to access more and haven’t already? As always, don’t forget to dare to be the person you’ve always wished to be!
What I wore:
Belt: no brand; vintage.
