How To Look Good When NA-KD?

How To Look Good When NA-KD?

I can understand why wardrobe decluttering is a cathartic release. Once you let go of things you no longer want, you feel more settled and content. As it stands, my wardrobe looks empty and I am super happy about that. Why? Because the space will invite new things into my life. The cost-per-wear of high-quality items is far more appealing than cheap-and-cheerful fashion. I recently found a few pieces on that are relatively affordable and made of sustainable materials.

I sometimes struggle with affordable fashion in terms of quality. The price point may be enticingly low, but yet it cheapens your style. I am proud to say that I am spending less money on fast fashion. In terms of longevity, sustainable items make for a more intelligent consumer choice.

Sustainable Materials

NA-KD offers various contemporary styles inspired by 1980s trends such as power dressing, oversized shoulders, and billowing sleeves. They also offer 20% off everything on their website when you use my discount code styleiconnat20 (valid for 48 hours only) and free shipping.

I could not resist the monochrome padded-shoulder drawstring mini dress by NA-KD. It reflects a classic style and is suitable for those who want to look sexy without baring everything at once. The mini dress features a round neckline, shoulder pads, long sleeves and an elasticised waistband. Moreover, the dress is from more sustainable materials.

Get NA-KD With Me

Statement clothing is part of my signature look hence why I adore anything with sharp or oversized detailing. NA-KD has a chic one sleeve PU top with a high, straight neck and adjustable, drawstring details. I teamed this top with a pair of black Jersey pants in black as NA-KD had sold out of the matching Cocoon PU pants. One top tip when shopping online is selecting the next size up to allow for any alterations. From my experience, some items are not always true to their online appearance. However, the items I ordered from NA-KD looked the same as the picture in terms of fit and colour.

The sharp shoulder knitted dress (now sold out) is elegant and would make for a chic Autumn/Winter outfit with a pair of ankle boots. My favourite item is the Elastic Waist PU trousers in olive green, which fit me perfectly. The length of the trousers may require adjusting depending on your height. Otherwise, the trousers’ straight cut is flattering and works well with a long, tailored jacket and fitted crop top. I still have fewer wardrobe staples than before, but quality beats quantity any day.
