OOTD#11 | The Berlin Wall | Berlin Style Guide

(Coat-ASOS, Trousers-Topshop, Jumper-River Island)

The graffiti scarred streets of Berlin are a fashion bloggers dream, with barely an expressionless wall or pavement to be found in the city districts and beyond.

Even the doorways and lampposts are scrawled with tags, and layers and layers of flyers for art galleries, club nights and the underground music scene.

Iv'e been channeling a minimal, normcore vibe for the past few months and that reflected in the outfits I chose to bring to Berlin. This look blended in perfectly with the Berlin street style, as boyfriend coats, canvas bags and scarves made up the staples of Berlin style.

 The colour scheme was muted, with the most trendy looks seeming to consist of layered coats, slouchy polo-neck jumpers tucked into dungarees, and lots of black Doc Martins and white runners. 

I have put together a Berlin Style staples guide below, featuring some of the most prominent feature pieces of the street style I saw. The Berlin look is all about minimum effort and maximum cool. If you look like you have tried with this look then you have failed to encapsulate the Berlin vibe.
Dusty hues, subtle athleisure and over-sized coats and jumpers are worn out, not a hint of a high heel or fake tan to be seen. New balances and chunky boots are footwear most often seen,and the boyfriend coat and longline heavy duster coat were seen on every district street.
