Somewhere in The Carolinas – I am over the resurgence in womenswear mimicking the blocky, boxy, chunky minimalist shapes of the 1980s that has been a happening since 2016. It is the “new-new” with the general public. And, cool – because it is easy, roomy and relaxing.
Sometime in early Autumn, I decided I’d begin flipping my look, winding it back to the mid to late 1950s. This style go-round will focus less on the kitsch and more on the tailored femme looks of the Mid 20th century. Think a broke woman’s Atomic aged [bogus] Christian Dior wardrobe. Not ‘Rockabilly’ or ‘Pin-up’ style but a straight ahead upper class, bohemian look of the period.
I am not dismissing my full wardrobe [although many pieces have been recently purged]. Most anything black and in-step will be staying. Black high waisted jeans, black rock band t-shirts, Chelsea boots, 80s vintage black leather motorcycle jacket, black boots, and that forever pair of Optic white Chuck Taylors are solid.
I cannot wait to see what I dig up.
