I’ve always loved pieces of clothing that were somehow different. Not at all extravagant, but sophisticated thanks to it‘s special cut.
One piece that defines this category is a denim sort of wrap skirt I had when I was in my early teens. Well, it was an actual skirt just from a certain perspective. From the back, you could see me wearing a regular denim shorts. Girlish from the front, sporty from the back at the same time. I recall I wore this piece until I literally grew up so it didn’t fit me anymore!
I genuinely enjoy these certain kinds of sophistications. At first, it teases you, then stops you for a while until you scan and understand the piece. These little explorations elevate the piece and – if worn appropriately, even inspire the observer. I guess this is just my bias, I tend to overthink even the little details. 🙂
Nevertheless, we can agree that catching the attention while not trying is always a good idea, right?
Recently, I’ve massively cleaned up my closet. I’m still trying to get rid of almost one third of my wardrobe. To be honest, I can’t even understand how could I wore some of the pieces. In fact, for the last couple of years, closet was not my priority item. I guess this was one of the moments you realize your personal evolution. And shit hit the fan.
I had these loose trousers on the ,,toss” list (as well as app 40 other pieces…). Mid-waisted, long enough to hit the ground and at first sight, you couldn’t tell if it was a maxi skirt or trousers. Same pattern. I can’t remember when I actually got them. They definitely didn’t have the 70’s vibe, nor 16′.
With any effort, by random scroll down the pinterest, I took the scissors and cut the 20 cm off.
Inspired by the current rise of cullotes, why not to recycle them?
For the first alternative, I went all-black for the summer evening with off the shoulder top. Accessories and vibrant lipstick put it all together. At first sight, I could probably tell I’m wearing jumpsuit.
The second alternative is very relaxed, normcore-kind of outfit with a sporty twist. I opted for white sneakers and denim shirt for cover-up. I guess some white tee would be even better for this choice.
