For women, I'd say that the wardrobe staple item would be a pair of black pumps. Some would say a little black dress.
For men, a well-fitted white oxford shirt. But for the fashion forward, it'd be a pair of clean, white kicks.
Having worn these for just about two years, I don't think you'd believe how little effort it took me to keep them this white (no sarcasm intended). These shoes are from the h&m x Maison Martin Margiela (MMM) collaboration two years ago. Now that we're on the subject of MMM, 2 B-I-G things are happening in the world of fashion. First, there is only a week and a bit until #ALEXANDERWANGxHM launches (6th of November). Second, MMM has recently announced that John Galliano has been appointed the new creative director of the brand. For those of you who didn't know beforehand, Galliano was Dior's legendary creative director until 3 years ago when an unfortunate racism scandal occurred. It's sad because he's been off the radar for a few years because of this incident. But now I am, and I'm sure many are, excited for his return and cannot wait to see what new direction he'll bring to MMM.
And for the outfit, I'm wearing my Summer 'guardian' (a.k.a black leather shorts) and this is probably the second last time you'll see them until next Summer). Had this top since the beginning of Summer but it's proven itself less practical than what I hoped for. Maybe fashion week sometime somewhere in the future (noted). Also reminiscing about 30+ degrees days and fear of sweating through white vests. Pretty certain I carried at least 2 liters of water with me that day.
