Outfits Inspired by My Favorite Foods
I'm sorry it's been a few weeks since I've made a styling post. The Spring semester has begun and I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things. To explain this post, I actually came across something similar on my Facebook feed. A guy had recreated makeup looks from junk foods, or something to that effect. I was inspired by that to create outfits based on my favorite foods.
As I was editing some of the photos, I realized how much I like warm-colored foods. Ironically, my personal style (and about 90% of my wardrobe) consists of black and grey items. Maybe this will motivate me to venture out??
From left to right, we have kimchi chigae, sushi, and a raspberry donut. Kimchi chigae or kimchi stew is one of my favorite things to eat, especially in the winter time. It's hot and spicy, with a lot of soft textures from the glass noodles to the kimchi to the tofu. Topped with some pepper and green onions and you have a perfect meal alongside some rice! Sushi is another favorite food of mine, particularly anything with spicy tuna in it. And finally, donuts. I don't eat these often but they are realllllly delicious. There's a place near my house called Blackbird Donuts, which specializes in artisanal donuts. They have interesting flavors and the berry one happens to be my favorite.
I've taken elements from each food item and translated it into three different outfits.
One: I wanted to incorporate the softness of the stew but also the bold red colors so I chose a loose red tank, paired with wide legged black pants. To mimic the pepper and just to add a down-to-earth vibe, I added the grey sneakers. To pull in that slightly boho look, I chose the flower crown as well as the round sunglasses. Finally, a small green accent in the form of a ring helps add some "green freshness" without clashing too much with the red.
Two: For the sushi, I tried to use multiple shades of pink to mimic the fish. Sushi is usually considered a pricey item, although it doesn't have to be upscale. To recreate that vibe, I used a flowy white dress to represent the rice and picked a fitted pink moto jacket to ground the outfit. For the seaweed that wraps around the sushi, I thought black strappy heels would be the best fit. Finally, for the crunchy texture, I chose a very structured patterned clutch, sticking to the beige and pink tones.
Three: Last but not least, because the donut is a very relaxed but bright item, I pulled together a striped sweater with ripped boyfriend jeans. To make it more playful, I added a donut purse! It added the perfect amount of color. To make the outfit more cohesive, I chose a bright pink lipstick. Although it's simple, it's very much a go-to look.
What's your favorite food in the world?
Bye for now,
