Thai island fashion direct from Koh Phangan

“I love clothing that makes me feel like a fairy in the woods.”

Danielle’s outfits mainly consist of handmade pieces from around the globe.

This week, Street Style goes international as we make our way to the Thai island of Koh Phangan. It’s there that Danielle has been living for the past year and a half, working on creative projects and studying plant medicine.

Her outfits echo the lifestyle of the island — free flowing and simple, yet splashed with many different cultures from around the globe. “Being in Thailand has inspired me to wear more natural clothing made from organic materials such as cotton. I like comfortable, loose fitting clothes for the heat.”

Danielle’s white wrap dress is just that, light and loose, handmade of 100 percent cotton in Thailand (Local shop, $30). The piece is complimented by a crystal necklace that she bought from her friend’s local jewelry store in Koh Phangan ($35) and traditional beaded earrings from Mexico that were gifted to her.

“I love pops of color and wearing items that are made with love and care.”

The centerpiece of her second outfit is a black kimono handmade by a woman from South Africa (Sovereign, $66). This simple fit is complete with a brown brim hat that she picked up while traveling through Bangkok ($20) and a mala necklace that she had made in Rishikesh, India ($25).

“I draw my inspiration from the forest. I love clothing that makes me feel like a fairy in the woods, that reflects the beauty of the earth and is made out of natural materials.”

Danielle has been traveling the globe for the past 4 years, but now spends most of her time in Koh Phagnan. There are a few shops on the island that have beautiful clothing that make up most of her new wardrobe. For more casual strolls around the island, she’s picked up bra tops and sarongs to wrap around her waist. “In Thailand, they also have these gorgeous handmade light scarves you can wrap around yourself as a dress. Simple and easy for going to the beach.”

When asked if the general style of the island was similar to hers, she replied, “Yes and no. A lot of the people living on the island are yogis, so they wear a lot of yoga clothes. There are people like me who dress with a similar earth, gypsy, natural vibe. So many people are creative with their style here.”
