Fall is here, and I have the perfect upcycled plaid shirt for you. Get your punk/grunge/hip hop on.
When I was a kid my mom would get on me about ripping my clothes and not doing more to look like everyone else. She never understood my love for thrifting, and my mohawk sporting punk phase was very much over the line. She would have hated this shirt. I found a fiery red plaid flannel one day and I helped to it until I could visualize it’s final form. This involved shooting it with bleach and then going back in for a dip dye bleach bath. I had a bunch of denim cloth and I loved the idea of a bleach treated, sky blue strip running down the front. The are studs and stars involved and one massive cobra snake patch on the back.
So basically it’s perfect.
The fun thing is that you could wear this everywhere with everything. It could be a dress, worn open as a shirt jacket, or sloppily tucked into a tailored trouser. The look below creates a grungy librarian vibe by pairing the awesome shirt with a fleece top, razor sharp pleated skirt and beat up black Supergas. It’s a 90s/00s kind of outfit. Finish with flower crown, just to be like that.
I love it.
See you next time!
