When I was at my heaviest it was hard finding clothes that looked decent and that fit me. It was so refreshing when I found Target had started designing funky, cool pieces for the bigger guy’s wardrobe. Thus began my secret relationship with Target.
After my 80 kilogram weight loss I began to slowly build up a new wardrobe , with staple everyday pieces mixed in with statement pieces. I’m a big believer in mixing brands whether it be high-end designer brands, or high street brands, like Target, that are more affordable yet still on trend.
I have put together an outfit below showing a mix of pieces I recently bought from Target with pieces from my own wardrobe that I’d recently purchased. See if you can pick my Target purchases from the pictures below.
Did you pick the TARGET pieces?
Well, if you didn’t, here goes :
Skinny stretch charcoal cord jeans (Piping Hot) = $49 TARGET
Button V Neck Cardigan in Plum = $39 TARGET
Outdoor Vest in Green = $49 TARGET
Leather & suede brogues = Country Road
Green Check Shirt = Sportscraft
Striped black, red and white socks = Happy socks label ( from Collector Store on Crown St, Surry Hills )
I hope this inspires you to try and shop differently, to think about mixing things in your wardrobe with on-trend pieces and, most of all, to realise that you don’t have to spend a lot to look good.
