Style obsessions / by Cinthia Contreras

Every fashion lover has  their own personal style loves. When it comes to these, it’s simply about the stuff you love wearing, the pieces and items you always turn to, your unshakable staples. You know the ones - whether it’s leather, killer sneakers, cashmere sweaters or ripped denim - you can never have or get enough of them. But are we slaves to our style obsessions?

There are so many great style obsessions and so many lovely pieces out there just waiting to be snapped up. Bag aficionados always have their ear to the ground for the latest It bag. Sneakerheads have their eyes peeled for the latest release. Brand devotees constantly scour their favourite haunt to snap up the latest piece - which will of course fit in perfectly with what they already have. And then there are those pieces you sometimes want (ahem, need) in several colours. Whatever your style obsession, chances are that if you love it, you’ll cop for it, regardless of price or reason.

Not everybody gets it but as those of us who have fallen prey to them know, our style obsessions - what we personally like - is exactly what gives our style an individual twist. Because it isn’t just about items we can’t get enough of, it’s about finding and rocking that item that makes you go “wow” and doing it your way. And as they say, you can’t have too much of a good thing...
