I still remember when I first pinned this image. I went on the hunt to find out the striped colorful shirt. In the midst of so many stripes, I found it. It was Acne Studios and way over my budget. And we are talking 2017, I think. After giving up on the idea and after mulling around other options, Zara had to come to the rescue and make the shirt. No surprises there.
And after talking about event-appropriate-clothes, I feel like this shirt is also, the right piece to dress up. The first time I wore it, was for a dinner out with friends. Paired with black mom jeans, a black shearling coat, a beautiful belt (that I couldn’t find the link to) and my black vinyl boots. I felt like I was back in the 70’s, going to a club to boogie all night.
It’s such a weird feeling, when clothes can transport you to a different era. There’s a sort of nostalgia in recreating an outfit, but it’s also important to still make it your own. I always go back to the style conversation. In my fashion history class, we have been discussing this dichotomy of what style, fashion and trends are. And how different the 3 concepts are. Shall we leave it to another post?
PS: the bubbles are real! There was a bubble machine right behind me! It was a magical moment.
