Guys and girls I feel absolutely fabulous in this outfit. I think each piece I’m wearing deserves it’s own major credit, and throwing them all together just fills me with joy.
First we’ve got the t-shirt, the inspiration for the ensemble. This is actually a kid’s t-shirt which used to belong to my boyfriend as a child! Weird I know, strange maybe, but don’t judge a piece of clothing on age or ownership, try and see it’s potential! Firstly, I have never owned a designer branded top before, so I feel this makes it fashion queen worthy. Secondly, the colour-blocking of the initials screams early 90’s, my favourite of times past. The bold primary colours are just asking to be matched with more bright colours, colour-blocked and lifted with bold jewellery.
You may have read the story of this jacket before. If you haven’t see my last OOTD post: Vintage Wrangler Jeans. Anyway, this jacket is answering cry number 1: match me! and cry number 2: colour block me! This oversized sportswear is massively enhancing the early 90’s look I’m going for.
Next, the trousers. These black and white trousers are so bright they really lift the primary colours. The high waist fits with the early 90’s look and the brush stroke print makes me feel like an artist, throwing colour about.
Now for the shoes! My Juju jelly shoes have been in hibernation for a while, but I remember I was so excited when I bought them as they truly remind me of my childhood. They were such a big thing in the 90’s and so they’re perfect for completing this outfit. I love the contrasting white buckles, they go perfectly with my trousers. I also love how they are sandals so you can have fun with socks (addressing my previous post: The Socks and Sandals Trend). Have you ever been to that trampoline place Bounce? Well I went in Bangkok and these are my Bounce socks. The bold colour blocking and chevron print is perfect for this outfit!
Now this outfit is super casual and comfortable, but I really want to address demand number 3 – statement jewellery. I feel my styling has fallen down a bit here – I’m just feeling the casual vibes too much right now. I do love this simple but bold choker from Primark though, and it’s matching my trousers and shoes. Of course I’ve got my gold hoops on and my Casio watch as well!
Do you have any childhood tees you can’t live without?
Til next time!
