Alex: I don't want to copy anyone, I want to be myself

12/04/2018

Hi, my name is Alex Vereb. I am 26 years old currently living in London, United Kingdom.

I work as a professional dancer. Working as a dancer you always have to stay up to date with fashion and dress to impress, you feel the pressure everywhere you go, as you never know who you going to meet, or get called for a very last minute casting.

As a dancer you have to take care of your body, stay fit and healthy, have a balanced diet as image is very important in the arts industry.

Choosing an outfit while living in London it can be very difficult, as one minute looks sunny in the next minute it can turn dark, grey and raining. Summers can be hot and very cold and wet for the rest of year. 

I am 1.69 m tall (5'7 feet), wearing a size S for tops (shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts etc.) and 30inch waist for bottoms (trousers, jeans, tracksuit). Brands I go for daily outfits are Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Nike, Adidas, BoohooMan and Asos. For evening wear (elegant) is Zara.

My style would be casual/smart and edgy. I love looking good, feeling good and being comfortable in the same time. 

The story of my style

Moving to London was definitely a big step in my fashion style. Being in the arts industry there is always a pressure of being aware of what you wear. London being such a big city in the arts fashion, there is so many shops know and unknown brands that can bring edge to your outfit. Is such a big, fashionable and open minded place that allows you to try and wear anything you want, without being judge of what you wear when you walk down the streets. That allows you to try everything you want and find your personality in your outfits and bring that personality out in your outfits.

Took about 2 - 3 years to find what I feel like suits me and feel comfortable in, I take my inspiration in everyday people, on the mannequin in the shop. I do not like to follow men outfits on magazines or Instagram. Don't want to copy anyone, want to be myself. 

10 wardrobe pieces that characterize my style: 

  • Smart Boots by Zara
  • Black stretchy trousers with long white stripes and chained pocket
  • White T-Shirt
  • Brown casual shorts
  • Guess watch
  • Silver ring
  • Silver cross necklace
  • RayBan sunglasses 

Best stylish regards,

Alex @alex.vereb
