As it gets colder, people are finding creative new ways to layer up. North Laine is busy with fashionistas on the hunt for new vintage clothing or beautiful jewellery to shine an outfit up.
There are so many people dressed in wonderfully colourful attire, as well as people pulling off the slick monochrome look. Today the people we talked to were all big fans of second-hand clothing, which is very lucky, seeing as Brighton has so many amazing vintage and charity shops!
Sophie caught our eye with her colourful patterned bag and cosy looking coat, which was detailed with a paisley inner lining. Her vibrant red hair really suited her chilled out look. She said that her bag was from India and she usually wore a matching scarf, which we imagine would look amazing! Her Doc Marten boots are a staple to the winter outfit – they look great but can also endure all types of weather. Sophie loves the vintage shops in North Laine as well as Kate & Aud. You can really see that her style is eclectic, from her Indian accessories to her vintage-inspired clothes.
We were huge fans of Judah’s pink hair and effortlessly fabulous look! Judah didn’t have a favourite shop in particular, seeing as most clothing tends to come from friends who had handed them down. When we inquired about the origins of the leather jacket, Judah laughed and said it was borrowed from Brigita (interviewed below). Even though it was borrowed, it really suited Judah. The over-sized leather-look gave off a very cool, 1960s rock-star vibe. The whole outfit was softened with a scarf that pulls it all together as well as seeming perfectly comfy for a cold day!
Brigita looked super stylish in her long suave coat and old school round shades. After the sophisticated looking coat struck us, it wasn’t long before we noticed her fabulous eye make up. Her eyelids were coloured with a cat-eye-style liner and holographic looking eye shadow. Brigita also had a wonderful array of jewellery which spiced up the whole look. It was these little intricacies that Brigita added which we liked best!
Everything seemed remarkably tied together – the tones of colour involved in her clothing went superbly well with the colours she used for her makeup. We also adored her shoes, which added a bit more of a casual element to the ensemble. Brigita is not a fan of fast fashion and believes things are better second hand. So, ‘To Be Worn Again’ was the shop she recommended to us!
Hopefully these looks have inspired you for ideas to keep warm but stylish in the winter. Brighton is never short of second hand clothing and bargains so keep your eyes peeled!
