Because it clearly looks better on me.
Hahaha just kidding, only a little. I stole this turtle neck and jacket from my boyfriend because I had the brilliant idea that it would make for the perfect look. It’s actually super funny because he was wearing it at the time and I had to tell him that I’m jacking his fit on the spot. Sharing is caring, right? Luckily, he was more than happy to oblige making an exuberantly happy me.
I have recently found myself gravitating toward the oversized, comfy look. Not sure if it’s because of the winter or just because I’ve been running out of clothes, but I’ve grown quite attached. Since I don’t own many oversized pieces, I’ve been casually borrowing sweaters from my dad’s closet. So, the moment I saw what le bae was wearing, I knew I had to have it on. LOL. So this inspired look is taking “The Boyfriend” style to a new, literal meaning #sorrynotsorry.
Since I was basically stealing a look from someone else, I decided to go all in and change my part to a middle. I used to rock this look when I was younger with paper straight, long black hair and no layers at all. It wasn’t until 6th grade that I decided to get a “big-girl” look, switch my part, get bangs, chop my hair, and layer it up.
I actually have tried to sport this middle part but I felt super self conscious about the way it framed my face. I felt like I looked ridiculous and could never measure up to the not-even-trying-but-I-totally-pull-it-off-anyway look. Think the Kardashians. So with my care out the window, I took the plunge to try it out again and throw on a vampy shade. Perhaps I was going for an alterego look where I exuded confidence and a lack of care to what others think.
Looking back, I have to say that I’m super glad that I jumped the gun and just went with whatever I felt like doing. Sometimes you just have to take a risk and believe in it full force and the result will be nothing short of amazing. I felt like a total badass rocking men’s wear and a “new do”.
A friend once said to me that if you are confident in what you do, it will reflect fiercely and effortlessly. I agree 110% in that! Don’t be afraid to test new limits and push certain boundaries. Always challenge yourself and know that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
