Tag: Essentiel



Lieke is one of those girls that we already ran into countless times, but never had the chance to photograph. Lieke studied Clinical Psychology and now works at Essentiel. When we spotted her, she was in her Essentiel uniform. “Although I feel good in the Essentiel clothes, my personal style is a little more eclectic. I love minimalism and prints. I love to switch between fitted and oversized clothes. I get a lot of inspiration from style icon Rihanna.” Her clothing budget varies from month to month. Some months she buys nothing, another month she can spend a monthly salary on a shopping spree in Antwerp. It is inspiring how Lieke dares to combine the feminine silhouette with a pair of cool sneakers. Add to the equation her short pixie haircut and we were sold! 

PS: Check out how Lieke was streetstyled in this Instagram video!

One of my favorite nominated fashion blogs, was The Merrymakers. Antwerp duo Ruth and Nathalie each have a distinct style and their blogposts are therefore always endlessly inspiring. Ruth’s outfit for the blog awards was right up my alley. The lovely jacket by Iro, the surprisingly beautiful Guess booties and the classic Balenciaga bag, create a gorgeous monotone and comfortable look. ‘Since I’m blonde, I can not go too crazy. Otherwise you get kind of a barbie effect.’ Ruth describes her own style as casual. She works for the PR agency Oona and likes to invest in more expensive pieces. Those who want to explore the world of Ruth and Nathalie, can visit their blog here.

In my closet… Favorite pants!


Do you know the feeling that certain garments have been created for you? A garment that fits within your budget, looks great on you, comes in your favourite color, is incredibly versatile, … a classic that you want to wear your whole life? I had this feeling with my beloved chinos from the Belgian brand Essentiel. A leopard / cameo printed pants in my khaki color, that I can dress up with high heels and bling bling, or wear casually with sneakers. But recently the unthinkable happened. One wrong move and the pants tore. I felt like crying. My favorite pants torn. But that happens when you wear them almost every day for two years. A week later, as a miracle, my mother sent me an email saying “your pants, in new condition and in your size, are up for auction on e-bay” (we are both quite e-bay addicts). So I bought them again. And I look forward to wearing them again for a few more years! Nederlands >>

Immi Styleforguys


Ghentstreetstyle is not the only successful fashion blog from Ghent. Style4guys, written by our friend Immi, is a blog about men’s fashion that is certainly worth a visit! Immi writes in his funny texts about his latest obsessions, inspirations fashion-wise and music-wise. Immi accompanied us to the blog awards and came in second in the category best fashion blog. The outfit he wore for this event is composed of pieces out of all price categories. My attention was immediately drawn to his fantastic footwear from Givenchy! This shoe is the perfect blend of a Dr. Martens and a classic brogue. For more inspiration, visit Immi’s blog here.

Tiany Kiriloff


Bij de blog awards horen natuurlijk ook presentatoren en wie is hier beter voor geschikt dan onze favoriete fashionista Tiany Kiriloff. Tiany is in België gekend van het programma Spotlight op Jim en van de website Belmodo.tv. Tiany zag er stralend uit in kop tot teen Essentiel. De juwelen die ze erbij draagt, zijn van Wouters & Nederlands >>
