The good old days when you spent your winter days…
One trend that doesn’t go by unnoticed this season must be the puffer jacket. To many a vague memory of the vestimentary habits of Belgium’s finest 90’s generation of Johnny’s and Marina’s. One of the most memorable and surprisingly inspiring belgian subcultures during my early lifespan. The thought of wearing the iconic puffer jacket may seem repulsive to some due to the rather questionable reputation of those kids who wore it first. So I thought I’ld give it a try. Here’s my way of how to wear the puffer jacket. Found this beautiful red matte one at Bershka and I’m actually surprised about how easily it lends itself to combine with different styles. I mixed it up here with some patent pieces since we’re bringing up the nineties. The patent ankle boots are actually the ones I bought 5 years ago (when I started my first blog lol) from Nasty Gal but never wore them because I felt a bit embarrassed about having bought total knock offs but they were not cheap so then I regretted not wearing them but eventually forgot about them. And just last week I cleaned out my closet and there they were, back in my life. Just about when every brand decided to sell the same kind of knock offs. Hmm. Pictures by Tijs Vervecken.
