Style Diaries: Meet Edgar

Edgar’s Style: Follow his personal Instagram here!

What is your style defined as?

I would say I have a minimalist/contemporary/mysterious look. I like a lot of modern/functional pieces that are easy and breathable to wear as well as fabrics that are lightweight.

I would say the head designer at COS, Karin Gustafsson. All of COS’ stuff is super awesome being super lightweight, simple/neutral colors, very relaxed and loungy. Their clothes have boxy shapes and I love shapes, that’s what I look for when I’m shopping. Another icon would be Alexander Wang, his look is more grungy with touches of a modernized contemporary look. Dominique Maciulla is another icon of mine, she was the one that got me into a contemporary style and she is also one of my managers at Buffalo Exchange. The way she dresses is super awesome and she is definitely an icon.

I follow a lot of accounts from Spain, like fashion bloggers and people that are out in the fashion industry. Spain is always ahead of the game with their fashion. The things that are trending in Spain now the US will see the following year so I get a lot of inspiration from them.

I shop at Buffalo Exchange a lot only because it is super affordable, you’ll find so many great items there and it is such a diverse store for tons of different labels and styles. With online shopping and brands I love Eileen Fisher, Bryn Walker, Zara, COS, Banana Republic. Basically just higher labels with contemporary styles.

First of all, I look for fabric and what the fabric is made out of. I definitely look for lightweight fabrics that are gonna be breathable. Living in Arizona is hard because it is super hot here so I definitely try to find those lightweight pieces. Secondly, I look for shape meaning the silhouette. The shapes I like are boxy and angular. Lastly, I look for neutral colors.

About a year ago, I found a Vetements hoodie at Buffalo Exchange. It was super cheap and in super great condition, it was pretty much brand new. That find was priceless and I will never get rid of it. I also have this harness made out of real leather that has some definite age to it which gives it a rustic look. I like it because I don’t see people wearing accessories like that, it is very moto style.

DSC00894What are your signature pieces?

I would say it’s not something that you wear physically but something you wear mentally, confidence. Confidence is a big key to what you wear and how you wear it, because that is what everyone sees. You have to have fun with it and think to yourself, “I look good and I am going to rock this for myself and no one else.”

DSC00857How can readers get your look?

I would say definitely go for the loungy, breathable, and boxy pieces. Look for the shapes, fabrics, and colors I mentioned earlier. Stick to the dark and neutral colors with a contemporary/modern look. You can create your own look with different type of styles because style is just a mixture.
