Autumn Orange

Hello everyone, 

First of all, I just want to apologise because it has been a while since we have updated this blog. However, hey, I am officially back from my slumber and today, I am very excited to show you guys an outfit that I have been trying to construct since early this year. And just an update from myself, I am currently doing postgraduate at UCL, so now, I am living in London!

Anyways, for today's post, I will be exhibiting an outfit that involves a colour that pretty much that people want to avoid wearing and the colour is orange. To be honest, it's a colour that I used to avoid pretty much, during my teen years and even, during my undergrad!

It was only until Nina Neko (do check her blog out) wore an outfit that involves the colour orange that made me think that I should try out this colour and see how it will work out. Although, I've just realised that it is very difficult to find an orange coloured clothing. We don't see the colour much often in stores

So after countless search for an orange coloured chinos, I have finally found it at Jack Wills.

Shirt: Burton
Cardigan: UNIQLO
Chinos: Jack Wills
Bowtie: Vintage Store
For this look, I knew that upon constructing it in my head, it would have to be for the Autumn season.    The symbolic orange leaves falling down from trees would be great for this outfit.

To balance the orange chinos, I have paired it up with a colours that are very subtle such as pastel blue and grey. In addition to that, I have also added universal colours – black and white. I personally think that orange goes well with these type of colours. We must equalise the colour of the orange with something that is very subtle.

For this look, I have decided to wear an Oxford Shirt which is pastel blue in colour from Burton. To keep myself warm from the weather, I've added a grey cardigan. By the way, a grey cardigan is hard to find nowadays, I am not even exaggerating. Shout out to my friend, Cornelius, who gave me this grey coloured cardigan from UNIQLO.

It seems to me that, not a lot of guys are a huge fan of bowties. They would only wear it for formal events, therefore, I've decided to show two photos, one showing with and the other without.

Casual look.
Personally, I love the smart casual look. Hence, I would prefer wearing the bowtie with it. In which, I've chosen a black bowtie with it, in order to complete the outfit. I just thought it would give a contrast to all the light colours that I am wearing. The black buttons from the cardigan matches the black bowtie as well.

Smart casual look.
As for the shoes, I have decided to wear my olive green coloured plimsolls from Lacoste. The olive green just complements the whole outfit all together. For sure, white shoes would go well with the whole outfit too! As well as, black shoes.

Plimsolls: Lacoste
Overall, the look I was going for is – the preppy smart look to go into classes without looking like you are going to a ballroom or a formal event. And the most important piece of clothing from this post is the colour orange, it is a very interesting and difficult colour to work with, but here's how I would wear it.



Autumn has always been my favorite season out of all four. I am not quite sure, but there's just something nice and serene about it. I guess in a way, the fall season symbolises about letting go and releasing things that has been a burden. Okay, I'm getting a bit too carried away from the fashion post.


All photo credits goes to my great friend Naqib H.
Thought, I'll end up this post with the epigraph of the book that I was holding. 

"She's buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks, her grave marked with a cairn. Not more than a little pile of stones, really. I didn't want to draw attention to her resting place, but I couldn't leave her without remembrance. She'll sleep peacefully there, no one to disturb her, no sounds but birdsong and the rumble of passing trains."



I hope you guys like this look! And again, I am so sorry for being MIA for a while. However, you guys should see us posting more soon.

Till next time,

M

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!

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).
