A Street Style with Subrina Heyink

3 years ago by

“I am wearing an almost head to toe vintage outfit I sourced while looking for pieces for my vintage shop. The Hermès linen vest is something I found originally for the shop but it didn’t sell for a few months and I figured it was a sign. I have 5 of the same vintage Prada short sleeve turtlenecks and I wear them 4 days out of the week. My favorite piece is these vintage Hermès trousers that I paid wayyyy too much for but I have owned them for a while now and seem to wear them at least once a week. This vintage bag was something I bought for my shop but decided to keep even before listing them because it only cost $8. Finally, my slides are from Mansur Gavriel. I watched them since early last year and finally purchased them last Christmas in 2 colors because when I like something, I really like them.

My personal style has evolved a lot in the past two years. I have gone from having a million options to having 25-ish things in my closet that I really love. My style is one hundred percent me and reflects my mood. You can always tell when I’m in a good mood because of how I dress.

The most important quality in an outfit is comfort, always! For example, I’m wearing a cashmere coat and turtleneck with a linen vest, that is the height of comfort. I avoid buying itchy synthetic fabrics and garments that are too fussy because I have a toddler and there is nothing worse than wearing impractical clothes while trying to have a day out with a three year-old.

My necessities are straight leg, tailored wool trousers in the winter and perfect silk trousers for all other seasons. I get my favorite silk trousers from this wonderful brand called Elizabeth Suzann. I have to have a good coat that elevates any outfit. I currently own two silk dresses, one I’ve had for a year from Datura Studio and the other I got from Penny Sage. I can wear them in all seasons, layered or alone, bury me in silk dresses. And finally, give me all the mules!! I am notorious for buying mules in multiple colors if I like them. I have two of the same mules from Trademark, Mansur and MNZ, I know what I like and I only buy what I like. It makes me feel good and it makes life less complicated.”

  • Vintage clothing is going to be the wave of the
    future . Many want to look great in designer duds but it’s impossible. The price of these garments is becoming more and more out of reach for the most . Although you can find great stores that you can shop at for much less . The other and more important to me is personal style . Style and creativity flourish when you take away trends, and marketing !

    I love charity shops. My best designer finds are a black Giorgio Armani coat (£12.50), Celine Luggage bag (£5.50) and a Tory Burch Robinson bag (6.50). I live in hope that I will one day find a Hermes scarf :) 75% of my wardrobe is second hand. Yesterday I picked up a M&S limited collection striped dress (2.00), a maxi dress from studio by preen (7.00), linen and lace tunic (4.99), white summer blazer (2.49). The only brand I don’t buy is Primark because I swear its dearer second hand. I do regular wardrobe purges and send to charity shops too. I love the fact that you never know what you’re going to find, its fun!

    I too buy shoes that I love in multiples. Usually two exactly the same no even different shades. Hate the thought of shoes I love clapping out. This way I can be a little rough on one pair knowing I have a spare!
