AS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN WEARING MEN’S TEES AND SHIRTS FOR A GOOD FEW YEARS, A SWEATSHIRT HAS BEEN SOMETHING I HAVE (SURPRISINGLY) NOT GIVEN A GO. WITH MY GRADUAL TRANSITION TO COMFORTABLE SPORTSWEAR/ STREETWEAR AESTHETICS A SWEATSHIRT, THAT TOO FROM THE MEN’S DEPARTMENT, WAS THE ONLY ATTRACTIVE FIND!
I was at one of Pull & Bear’s stores, looking around the women’s department, but I couldn’t find a single piece that let me tick all the elements that I wanted in my top. So, naturally I ventured into the men’s department and found :
* An oversized sweatshirt
* The perfect cool graphic print – minimal but not too minimal – ink work was bold and had the right amount of detail
* The material was comfortable and soft
* A clean white sweatshirt that I could be pair with shorts, slacks or tights depending on the occasion.
This was what I have been looking for, for a good while and voila it’s the men’s department that blesses me with it. There’s an oddly satisfying feel in buying something that is traditionally meant for a certain gender. This also prompts the question – Would future of fashion have gender based clothing? My immediate answer is a simple no – that is slowly dissolving. I will get in depth with this topic another time. But for now, I’ll force you all to see how I styled the sweatshirt.
MY FIT : CASUAL SATURDAY
* A denim bucket hat paired with excessive gold jewelry as I have feeling Missy Elliott’s style vibes – basically, I’d cop her whole wardrobe if I could.
* The oversized sweatshirt was just all I needed, oh of course the two toned tights felt like a good option.
* My trusted patent leather booties.
