What’s in my Wardrobe? – Lauren Banks

What item in your wardrobe do you love the most?

At the moment, it’s my burgundy pinafore from ASOS. I absolutely adore the colour, and pairing it is so versatile. I can coordinate it with either my roll neck jumpers for something fancy looking, or just a long-sleeved black t-shirt for a more casual vibe. Sometimes I mix it up and couple it with my orange jumper so I can live out my Velma Dinkley fantasy. Jinkies!

What is the oldest item in your wardrobe?

I’d have to say my shabby and well-worn Green Day hoodie that I bought when I was about 12 years old. I still remember going to Affleck’s Palace in Manchester to buy it. I still wear it sometimes, layered underneath my denim jacket – even if the cuffs are completely destroyed and the colour is barely resembling black anymore. It’s just too comfy to get rid of.

Do you have an item you wear all the time?

My culottes. I’d wear them every day if I could get away with it! They’re so adaptive; I can wear them in spring, summer, autumn, and even winter if I’m feeling brave. And I can wear them with almost anything. Though in the warmer weather I usually pair them with a brightly coloured vest, or a sweater or t-shirt when it’s getting chilly.

Any fashion faux pas?

There was once a time when I thought that bootcut jeans were really cool. As you can imagine, it can’t get any more degrading than that (granted I was only young however). I used to show them off any opportunity I could get. Thank god skinny jeans became a thing.

What have you got your eye on next?

My ASOS wish list has been holding on to a Reebok Classics sweatshirt for ages now, so it might be time to take it out and actually put it in my basket. I’m a huge fan of the vintage/retro look, and it’s been a hot minute since I treated myself to a brand-new comfy sweatshirt. Plus, items like this are just great for throwing on with some jeans and instantly having a cute, stylish, and low-effort outfit. Perfection.
