Guest Post: The Mayden


"I'LL STOP WEARING BLACK WHEN THEY MAKE A DARKER COLOUR," said Wednesday Addams.

 I'm right there with you, child of woe, sacred sartorial speaker for all.

While my predisposition to shroud myself in Black prevails, pops of bright colours such as red and orange have been creeping their way into my outfits in recent weeks. Mustard is the mischief that splashes my canvas with colour this time round.




Abiding by the fashion law that states the colour's slenderizing power, I went for a streamlined silhouette in the form of a black button down half-tucked into leggings. Understanding that it is almost a crime to wear leggings as pants, I consciously left the back of the button down out of the neat tuck to neutralize the sacrilege committed (aka a fancy way to say let the shirt cover up my unflattering bum.)

While black is a universally appealing colour, it often falls into the danger zone of appearing flat out boring due to the uniformity of it. Antidotes to nullify this includes playing with interesting cuts and layering. My personal favourite way to offset this, however, is to slap on a humongous necklace for purposes of breaking the snoozing insipid and bringing back the drama (aka life).

What's more lively than gargantuan piece of accessory? An adorable cat-eared beanie. Slipping that onto my head though the weather and my fuzzy hair yells protests against my decision, I tied the entire look together with similarly-coloured socks and my usual platform boots.


For those unfamiliar with me, my name is May Cho. Brunei-based, I write with style at The Mayden, a blog with a focus on writing alongside showcases of personal style. A huge thank you to the Wearriors for inviting me to guest post on Wearrior Instinct!

Have a lovely week!

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).
