Keeping on the cusp of new fashion trends is hard work, if you consider hard work to be window shopping and finding a storage space big enough to house the hundreds of old magazines I refuse to toss out. And trends change so quickly, cycling through the truly innovative and back around to the same old, sometimes it can be hard to keep up with what’s chic and what’s shit.
Now comes a trend that seems to straddle the worlds of retro and ridiculous. BEHOLD – the Shirt as a Skirt silhouette.
The last time I tied a shirt around my waist was probably in the first grade and, not surprisingly, it wasn’t for fashion’s sake. As a special Fantastic Friday treat, J., the beautiful face, closet and mind behind JsEverydayFashion.com, is guest posting on WTForever21 and has braved the waters of this daring trend, going where only people who have accidentally pissed their pants have gone before (and manages to look FABULOUS doing it!)
Here’s J’s take on the look, top to bottom.
“Shit guys I forgot my pants.”
Don’t worry, it happens to me *all* the time. Which is why I was so elated/relieved/excited when I found this new trend on Chictopia. An answer to all of our pesky pants-less conundrums: you can now wear your denim shirt as a skirt! Not only is it so freaking hot right now, but it’s also a fun magic trick that you can use to impress your friends at the next house party. Does it look like I’m sporting a long-sleeve shirt tied around my waist 80′s style? Well, yes, I technically am… I’m just also wearing it instead of pants…
This trend is coming soon to a Forever 21 near you. Will you rock the shirt-as-skirt? Or pass on this denim magic trick?
