Best Outfits of 2014

Fashion blogger Stephanie Brown of FAIIINT best all black gothic street style outfits of 2014

Happy 2015 guys! I don’t really have many traditions when it comes to New Year, but I always like to start the New Year on here with a round-up of my favourite outfits from the past one. It’s become a great tool in helping me refine my style, and I would highly recommend doing it yourself if you’re trying to figure your own style out or just want to improve it & make it stronger. Whether you have a blog & share them with the world or you just take a shot in your mirror each morning just for yourself, whenever you put something together that you love & that makes you feel great, take a quick photo of it!

Last year I said I wanted to further refine, experiment more and feel even more comfortable & confident in my own skin, I think when you compare this set to the last two, 2013 & 2012, you can definitely see this development. You’ll also probably notice many of the same items of clothing from all 3 years, I like to invest in things & wear them for many years & I really hate the wastefulness of constantly buying all new outfits. When you buy high quality pieces, that you truly love & are not dictated by trends, you’ll get endless enjoyment from them & find plenty of ways to wear them over & over without getting bored.

I think 2014 has been the year of the hat, over half of these I have one on & I wore that fedora a lot! I doubt that will change this year either, so I’m going to aim to try out even more styles. I’m also banning myself from saying ‘it’s too girly for me’, as a tomboy at heart I find myself saying this constantly, especially with fluffy skater style skirts & lace, but I tried it out in a couple of outfits here & surprised myself by loving it each time.

Do you guys have any favourites?

    You’re the QUEEN of layering and no one wears all black like you…you always make it so interesting! 100% with you on the investment thing, I don’t even think you have to spend a tonne of money (I have pieces from GAP, Uniqlo and even Topshop that have lasted me for years!) but it’s definitely about choosing things you love.

    I think my favourite outfit here is number 6, I just love that dress! The sleeves and the little split thing in the hem are too perfect. And I love any outfit post with Nico in them of course!

    Happy New Year to you both Steph <3 x

    Steph you are an inspiration girl, always so beautifully put together, classy but fierce! I think my faves are 4,9 and 15, though it’s hard to choose! You’re so right about investment pieces too, this is my new year fashion resolution – to give up fast fashion! J xxx

    I love looking at your evolution. 2012 -> 2013 was about learning how to make all-black interesting. 2013-2014 was about mastering the art of layering all black to create really dynamic outfits. You look like a gothic apothecary and you’re my total style crush. You make me lament the fact that I can’t find a fedora to fit my big head. I cannot wait to see what you do in 2015.
