A lamp shade struggle

As I've already told you guys in one of my previous articles - I'm very much into strange headwear.

And I just couldn't leave this big hat, reminding me a lamp shade an iconic Dior silhouette, in H&M.

Although it's hard to admit, in this case, the look overweights functionality. I cannot complain about its sun protection abilities allowing you to read peacefully and undisturbed on a beach in the strongest Copenhagen sun at noon, but try to take it to that beach. Get yourself knocked down by a car because your field of view reaches only the handlebars or crumple it to your vacation suitcase? Highly impractical thing.

But as someone changes flats to high heels pulling them out from a handbag in front of the theatre, I carry my giant hat in my bike basket and put it on safely at the and of my road - there's no other way.

Well, style at the expense of practical value is not just a case of switching to your fancy shoes and jumpsuit in the toilet.

What's your current fashion crush that's balancing between style and convenience (and perhaps falling slightly more into the style)?

Tiež občas so úsmevom sledujete uniformitu na uliciach? Ako sú teraz biele AirForce, skinny jeans, biele tričko a křivák považované za vrchol štýlu? A pritom skupinka ľudí nosiaca biele oversize stany košele s ortopedickými topánkami vie, že v skutočnosti je to hrozne mainstream a že skutočný trendsetter nosí minimal?

Neberte módu tak vážne. Trendy pominú, no váš štýl je večný. Je to tažké, vyzobať v bežných reťazcoch niečo iné, ako aktuálne trendy, no kto hľadá nájde. Ak nie v reťazcoch, tak v sekáčoch, maminej skrini alebo u lokálnych módnych tvorcoch. A vedzte, že sa taká drobná investícia oplatí! Získate ozdobu šatníka, kus, ktorým sa odlíšite i dobrý pocit :)

Do you also observe with amusement and a smile on your face the encompassing sameness in the streets? How the white AirForce sneakers, skinny jeanse, white top and biker jacker are considered to be the shiny top of the women's style? Meanwhile, a small group of people dressed in oversize white tents shirts know that this is just boring mainstream and the real trendsetter wears minimal?

Don't take trends so seriously. They're passing by, and the only one that lasts is your own style. It's not easy to peck out something different form the actual trends in chains, but certainly not impossible. If not in shops then second hands may come in handy (pun intended). Alternatives also include mom's closet or local fashion designers. And you guys know that this investment is really worth it. You'll be getting a piece you'll make a difference with, a true jewell and... a good feeling :))
