Now that I’m in my mid-20s, I feel like I’m always struggling to choose between two fashion identities: the version of myself who wants to dress like a total Gen Zer (smiley-face jewelry and all) and the one who wants to look mature and elevated at all times. It’s a constant battle. But through trial and error, I’ve adopted an in-between style. I choose pieces that could easily be a part of both identities, depending on how I style them. After chatting with my co-workers-turned-friends who are also in their 20s, I found out that we’re all in the same boat. We’re here for crop tops that can be worn solo with baggy jeans or under a blazer with tailored trousers, extra-chunky boots that could be paired with a mini dress or tucked under some straight-leg pants, and vests that can be rocked solo or layered with a button-up shirt.
The most recent H&M drop is kind of perfect for our multiple fashion identities. It has a selection of cool layers and statement pieces made for outdoorsy fall days. And not only is the collection ridiculously cool, but it’s made from more sustainable materials, too. (Hello, 100%-recycled-polyester padded vest.)
