That big pre-season, post-season but-both-are-too-far-away-to-do-anything-constructive-for-me-right-now outfitting rut is starting permeate my fashion faculty again which officially remarks this the most frustrating and boring time of year.
Should I really continue wearing these denim cut-offs which have only been washed once since inception with a black t-shirt (the same laundering rule applies) or can I try my hand at a turtleneck yet? Ah, that’s right, it’s 85 degrees. Back to the denim board it is.
When I can’t make a point, or find that I have to continue reiterating the same point through my own mode of dress, there’s only one thing that I can do to remedy the disturbing silence: click back in time through the street style images of some of my personal favorite websites and allow the pages bursting not with fashion – as very clearly and intelligently pointed out by one commenter yesterday – but with style to either dictate the imminent tendencies of my next season or howl a cough of inspiration into the present.
Up today: the seemingly ceaseless pages of Stockholm Streetstyle, pleasantly flooded with pink suits, embellished vests (there’s a way to make your cut-offs interesting again), makeshift denim uniforms, sequined pants, bare midriffs, and one Dries van Noten silk plaid jacket that will age as gracefully as my Snapchat-induced wrinkle has.
My lesson of the morning is that I think I’m going to try pairing a red and white striped shirt with my pre-existing red and white striped shorts (slide #3). Have the photos incited any of your own new ideas?
