Alican: I developed my style from boring polos to sporty classics rich in colors and accessories

11/01/2018

My name is Alican Senturk. I'm 29 years old and currently living in Istanbul, Turkey.

I work as a manager in a coffee boutique. Earlier I worked as a manager in several fast fashion brands. 

I also try to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle, so I go to the gym 3-4 times a week. I enjoy taking photos of every day moments.

I'm 1.76 m tall. I usually wear size M (40 in European standards) for shirts and t-shirts. For daily outfits I mostly choose fast fashion brands such as Zara, Cos, H&M and Massimo Dutti.

I love different colors and love seeing them in my outfits. Making combinations rich in different colors is a bit hard. I think it doesn't come with inspiration but instead with practice. I would say it's developing over time. My favorite colors are blue, khaki green and orange.

I would call my style as classic and elegant. Sometimes sporty when it comes to daily life.

Accessories and details are very important for me. My scarfs, hats, necklaces and sunglasses are all meant to complete my combinations. Sometimes putting a necklace over a basic white or black t-shirt can change the atmosphere completely.

The story of my style

I developed my style when I worked in fashion brands. As a manager there, I made style combinations for male customers. My previous style was much more flat - I wore only Lacoste polo T-shirt. Actually it was boring. But when you're inside this job, naturally your perspective is changing. So, my combination skills developed over time. 

My previous style was much more flat - I wore only Lacoste polo T-shirt. Actually it was boring.

My favorite wardrobe items are brown suede jacket for autumn and my white turtleneck knitwear. Turtleneck knitwear and cardigans feel more stylish to me. My suede jacket looks very natural to me. In general, I love winter combinations more than summer ones.

10 wardrobe pieces that characterize my style: 

  • White sneakers 
  • White and orange beret
  • Patterned socks
  • Black boots
  • Stripe shirts
  • White basic t-shirt
  • Flat white and black shirt
  • Checked scarf and knitwear
  • Black blazer
  • Jeans

Best stylish regards,
