Owing your own personal style is empowering and a must, despite your gender, race or size.
 
What trends are you looking forward to for the autumn/winter season ?
For the upcoming autumn/winter season, I have a feeling that I will be flaunting a lot of monochromatic looks in as many colors as I can, for its classy yet, chic look. Also, I want to invest in a good quality leather jacket to keep me warm this year.

As my blog name ‘The Style Versatile’ goes, I describe my style to be truly versatile. However, the trend of utility, sports luxe and street-wear have me favoring that style currently. I take my inspiration from Instagram as they have all the fashion pages to follow. I’m really inspired by Jaden Smith’s style but I’m yet to incorporate his edgy looks into my style.

Supreme Fanny pack, Adidas white sneakers, Daniel Wellington watches, chunky rings, and black hoop earrings.

Know your body type and make sure to wear outfits that compliment them.  And mainly be happy with the look you’re donning and that will naturally make you confident. And confidence always stands out over everything else.

The trends that I am excited and looking forward to are lots of layering on layering (The more, the merrier), animal and vintage prints, rebirth of vintage logos of the various brands (like Prada, Levis, Diesel, Gucci and more),  lots of faux leather wear, and bright fluorescent orange, which is the colour of the season.

I don’t think I have any particular style and my outfits depends on my mood on how I want to appear to the world.

I get inspired by anything or everything I see in the streets or online, colors and prints or my favorite online bloggers.

I advice to always have basics in your wardrobe. The most important one is to always carry your outfit with confidence as, if you feel good from the inside, you also look good on the outside.

Bright and mild colors are always connected to summer and spring but I am looking forward to find those colors in turtle necks or sweaters to make this autumn/winter a little bit colorful. Also gingham and houndstooth are statement prints which I want to try with its comeback as trend this season.

Anup Gelal portrays that minimalist fashion can be just as cool and inspiring as more ornate looks. It’s about having a minimalist aesthetic – this refers to sticking to a limited colour palette; having a simple silhouette to your clothing and keeping accessories to a minimum. To everyone thinking about having a capsule wardrobe, his feed serves exactly that with a little bit of style tricks, here and there, making the ultra plain outfits look intriguing.
 
How would you describe your style ? What inspires you ?
I would rather name it as minimal and aesthetic as i am always finding myself being lured to the minimal colors of clothes. Back in 2017, I stumbled upon the profile of an Instagram blogger "thegrayhaus", got inspired to start blogging myself.

Denim jacket, bomber jacket, plain t-shirts, chino pants and overcoats.

What trends are you looking forward to for the autumn/winter season ?
Autumn for me, really is the best season for bringing out personal style. This autumn/winter, I am very much looking forward to wear my plaid woollen shirt and my woollen blazer, that I added to my wardrobe last year. They didn’t get much wear then so, I’ll be wearing them often.
