This is the third month of my internship with Song of Style and I find myself wearing a lot of oversized blazers to work (duh, I work for Aimee). Inspired by my lovely co-worker and her post on what she wore to her first week as a SOS intern, I documented my outfits for a week in the form of mirror selfies inside WeWork‘s bathroom.
3 of the 5 pieces in this outfit were men’s – trousers were from a Venice-born label called Older Brother (Similar here), the blazer and turtleneck were part of the men’s uniform from a retail store I used to work at. I’d like to think that I worked the uniform better than my former male co-workers. I used a belt to achieve the gathered waist look and to prevent these ginormous pants from falling down.
Monochromatic outfits are my go-to’s, I find it super fun to mix in different fabric textures. Here I wore an oversized white dress shirt with a pair of thrifted Issey Miyake Pleats Please Pants (Similar here). To complete the all-white look, I wore my Maison Margiela white Tabi Boots (Affordable here). What I love about working at WeWork is that there’s always free food. Pictured below is me taking the stairs to get bagels so I don’t feel as guilty.
Plaid blazers are now considered must-haves and so are a pair of black stretch booties. My blazer was a find from men’s section in a vintage store in Seoul, Korea. On the same day, I came across these trousers in the exact patterns at the local H&M store. Hashtag blessed. Hashtag best day of my life. I was matching with the WeWork printer so I asked Sophia to take a picture.
My oversized blazer here, again, was thrifted from the men’s section at Goodwill. To make it less businessy, I went with a beige turtleneck top and a pair of straight jeans. I wore my Balenciaga Satin Knife Mules for a polished touch to the outfit. My morning usually starts with coffee from the WeWork kitchenettes, which has now become one of the two things I can’t live without – the other being an oversized blazer.
