The Girl In Black

Well, hello everyone!

Yes, the big reveal is (half) over as I am one of the new faces for Wearrior Instinct.

Blogging about fashion and lifestyle related things has been my underlying interest, so it was an honour when Wearrior A invited me to join the team and was simply an offer I couldn't turn down.

Now for those who know me well, would expect my first blog post to consist of an all black outfit. Surprise, surprise, as my debut I present to you one of my favourite all black outfits. This one is my go-to outfit for those days when I feel like dressing a bit more grunge than usual.

Since Spring is (kind of) upon us this means being able to ditch the thick winter coats for lighter options such as a leather jacket. Personally I love pairing my leather jacket with a maxi style cardigan, it gives that extra warmth and is a great layering piece that adds contrast to the outfit.

Wearing an all black outfit may be daunting for some, but I think the key to it all is mixing up the shapes and textures within the outfit. So within mine I have mixed textures ranging from faux leather, knit and jersey just to add dimension to the outfit.

Now for those chillier Spring days I like to add my trusty blanket scarf to keep me warm. Sticking with the monochrome theme, this classic Houndstooth print scarf is my ultimate favourite out of my winter scarf collection as it never fails to match any outfit I pair it with.

So that's it for my first blog post. I hope you guys enjoyed it! The suspenseful wait isn't fully over though. Stay tuned for next week's 2nd reveal of our final addition to the Wearrior Instinct family!

Wearrior Biographies

AINUL

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hello! Welcome to Wearrior Instinct. I'm Ainul! My style is described best as 'mix and match'. Fashion, to me, is a form of self expression. I dress for myself and I love exploring new and different ways to do it. I believe strongly that we all have the potential to be the best we can be; all we have to do is to follow our (Wearrior) Instinct.



MYUIZZU

STATUS: PAUSE

Hey! I'm Mu'izz. I'm currently taking my masters degree in Political Science at UCL. I would probably say that my fashion style is best described as "Good-boy Oxford look" and I love colours. Although, I am preppy for most of the time, I do also like to mix elements from other fashion style. Right now, I am exploring more of the urban style. For me, Fashion is a platform that expresses and embraces one's individuality. Hopefully, it will inspire you to wear your (Wearrior) instinct! – I am on a research leave at the moment, I will be back soon!



ALIA

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hi! I’m Alia Alkaff, a 20-year-old Graphic Design undergraduate at Norwich University of the Arts. Black enthusiast and a lover of all things minimalistic, which also happens to best describe my style of Fashion. With being a part of Wearrior Instinct it has encouraged me greatly to be proud of what I wear and I hope we as a team will have that effect to bring out your inner Wearrior Instinct!



02FEZ

STATUS: HIATUS

My name is Faiz, but most people call me Fez. I studied at the the University of Leeds and graduated in 2015. I currently run a pop-up based coffee business called Aoyama Coffee. My interests in fashion lie more in on streetwear - and bridging the gap between it and menswear. I'm a fan of the little things in labels that set them apart from others, and my taste is a little unconventional, to say the least. I'm also really into raw denim. I should mention that I'm on hiatus at the moment - but I will be back!



AMSAIMZ

STATUS: ACTIVE

Oh hi there! I run a YouTube channel called AMSAIMA, where I create beauty and styling vlogs. I like to think of my fashion sense as multifaceted - I could dress to the nines with textured garments, look quirky while donning a pair of boyfriend jeans, or go for an alternative retro. Wearrior Instinct doesn’t just provide a space for me to document my looks and write about the pieces I’ve put together, but as I’m all about body positivity, I see this as an opportunity where confidence can be both built and encouraged. Lots of love, Amalsaima (or simply, Amal).
