Does Traveling Transform Your Personal Style?

Does Traveling Transform Your Personal Style?

Hello again, everyone - It has been a while since the last blog post, and that’s because I was hopping around Japan! While I was there, I was so impressed (by everything, really) but mostly the friendly culture, the delicious food, and the street style. People there know how to dress. I came back wanting to change up my whole wardrobe. And in this blog post, we’ll do just that! But this time, with a focus on the town we all know and love, Portland. 

  1. Uniqueness is #1

Portland is known for its eclectic fashion scene, you can find inspiration in every section of town. What’s fun about Portland is that each district has its own vibe - from artsy NE to vintage shopping in SE. Wherever you decide to go, you can guarantee to find something to add to your closet. Here are a few totally unique items in the shop right now.

  1. Sustainability is Always Stylish

Portland is known for its commitment to sustainability, and this also extends to the fashion scene. But don’t just take our word for it, there’s a reason why you see resale and consignment shops all over town. Below we are highlighting a few of our favorite ethical brands we love to see in the shop.

  1. You Learn How to Layer Like a Pro 

The joke in Portland is that if you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes. Yes, she can be unpredictable at times, you learn the art of layering and mixing and matching pieces rather quickly. This newfound skill can help you create a wardrobe that is adaptable and functional, yet still reflects your personal style. Here are a few of our layering suggestions.

  1. Incorporate Some Portland Trends

 Portland is known for its unique blend of urban and outdoor lifestyles. You can see a total 90s grunge look on Hawthorne or a group of friends catching up at a brewery all wearing plaid. Pretty much anything goes, but one thing is for sure, comfort is key. Here is our very PDX lineup.
