My MANy Bags Trendspotting #84

Below: This cute 'Brad Goreski' lookalike spots a interesting mix of military style with plaids and knits. Love this unusual interpretation of the current military trend. Those aeroplane insignia on both sides of his collars are a cute touch. He is simply 'delectable'!

Below: Big macho studs for a macho biker look. Russian military hat?!?!

Below: I love bow ties on guys! Love his camel coloured blazer...

Below: More modern dandy-ish styles... his hat and classic look got a surprise boost with that street style waist chain. Bad boy cool?

Below: From bad boy to meek boys... feather cape anyone? One thing's for sure, he is cute enough to pull off this statement making look:-P (Do you guys think he is Asian?)

Below: Is that a Neil Barrett patchwork blazer? I love how he pairs it with loose pants, a change from all the 'pencil legs' we see these days:-)

Below: Distressed jeans... what more can I say... very cool!

Below: I always believe in footwear. Look at those zipper boots. Interesting detail:-)

Below: Of course, I love those Givenchy Bondage boots from Fall Winter 2009

Below: The ever stylish Melanie Huynh in her cool Altuzarra wrap style heels and fringe skirt. FYI, Altuzarra designs for Givenchy before... those shoes are my favourite from Spring Summer 2010 season besides the Balenciaga ones...

Below: Those military olive green Balmain jeans make legs look so slim and long! Love!

Street Style In Europe (Milan, Paris And More...)

Real people wearing real clothes, be it designer or not, are the best inspiration any fashion fans can get. These are some looks that I fancy very much, both women and men's. Perhaps we cannot pull off every look, but they make great inspirations nonetheless.

From military chic, biker/rockstar styles to elegant dandy ensembles, real people are the true living bible of fashion:-)

So which is your favourite? I am rooting for the Brad Goreski lookalike wearing the cool military officer jacket over his plaid pants. Love those aeroplane insignia on his shoulders too. What a cool look. Nerdy, army chic? I also adore the biker jacket with the huge studs... makes the guy look tough! As for the ladies, Melanie Huynh's Altuzarra wrap style shoes and fringe skirt are simply chic. Of course, any Balmain jeans gets me crazy such as the khaki green one on Vogue Paris fashion editor, Claire Dhelens:-P
