PFW Streetstyle: Statement Day

October 2, 2015

A skater skirt with knee-high socks and black derby shoes is ALWAYS a good combination! I decided to make the minimalistic ‘cute & classy’ look a bit more interesting with a statement shirt: more personality = more fun!

Anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows that I’m a big fan of power  women: strong women who follow their dreams and work hard to get there… you have my infinite respect! This outfit is my tribute to you, and actually it has a little story to it. I got this limited edition T-shirt while visiting a Cosmopolitan event in Amsterdam some months ago, it was all about the empowerment of women and I met some amazing and inspiring people there. They organized several reading around the topic ‘Confidence’. It got me thinking about what this word actually means to me.

For me confidence is not about not having any doubts, it’s about having doubts but trusting in your own capacities to reach your goal. I had more than enough doubts about becoming a fashion reporter…

I am not schooled in fashion, I don’t have any experience (yet), there are so many professionals out there, what if I will make a fool out of myself? Did those doubts stop me from trying it anyway? Hell no!

  •  Can I write English? Yes I can
  •  Can I give an opinion about fashion? Most definitely
  •  Can I learn how to improve my skills? Duhh

Seems legit… let’s do this! I guess in this situation I would classify myself as a power woman, and to be honest: I really like to think so! How would you describe confidence or a power woman? Share your
thoughts!

    Hi Lynn, where did you get this jacket? I love it! And to answer your question: a power woman is someone like Emma Watson. Her speeches really inspired me. And next to that, she got the looks, right?!

      Hey Melissa!

      This jacket is from Karen Millen, a birthday present from my mom!
      I totally agree with you on Emma Watson, I absolutely adore her <3
      Personally I think that Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong'o are also amazing examples, and well... so many more! It's very inspring to me :)

    Pants and pant suits are also something we spotted all over, and know we’ll be rocking this Fall. The white on white trend is still going strong, and we love that this look is perfect for any occasion.

      Yes, I definitely saw LOTS of pants suits on the runway this Paris Fashionweek, I love the strong lady look! Furthermore I also spotted a lot of romantic lace, which is actually quite the opposite.. you gotta love fashion;)
