Tried a few cheap outfits the last few days that weren't just all Nike sportswear. All have been pretty bad. This one looks alright I think, but the photos did not come out well. I might edit this and replace it later if I come up with something better before the end of the contest. I have some non-collab Uniqlo stuff that might look alright. I realised that I usually depend on one or two designer items in my outfits and without them it just gets very basic, which is okay for day to day outfits but not really interesting for the forum. Looking forward to what everyone else comes up with.

I was told to post this in here! Experimenting with normcore/90's vibes.
Everything is mall shit. Jacket from Gap, Jeans from pacsun, and Vans Old Skools. Favorite piece is the sweater (from J. Crew) and I really love it due to its comfort and faded color.
Only got one pic before it started raining. I'll see if I can get more (and maybe tweak the color palette?), but if I don't get the chance here's my entry.
New Look (random Asos brand) suede trucker
Uniqlo (from the glory days of MIJ denim)
The sleeve of the jacket is the same color as the body. I'm not sure why it came out looking bluish.
Primark shades (~£2)
Vintage - French army jacket (£51)
Uniqlo - Robert Mapplethorpe print tee (£12.90)
Uniqlo jeans - unpicked raw hem (msrp £29.90)

Maybe just me, but with less going on with the fit, the temptation to mess around with the photos to make it more 'interesting' was greater. lol
