I’m a serious Internet surfer. No joke. It’s appalling how much time I spend in front of a computer screen. If there was a common-law type law (sorry for the redundancy) between humans and computers, I would absolutely and completely be considered married to my Macs (yep, I have more than one).
During fashion week, all of them – New York, London, Milan, and Paris, my time spent in front of the computer shoots way above normal, if that’s possible. I went to art school – SCAD – so naturally, I’m drawn to the avante-garde. But avante-garde is seen everyday. I have to seek it out. When it comes to clothing, I get my avante-garde fix by seeing the street trends during fashion week. The trends of people attending the shows can sometimes be wild and too over the top but these are the most fashionable people out there – I’d be silly not to take a clue from them for future trends.
One of the trends I noticed at New York’s spring 2013 shows was comic book tees worn with a dressed-up skirt or slacks. I even saw a Bulls basketball jersey worn with a black, pleated maxi skirt. There were a couple of times when I said, “really?” but then I saw a comic book tee worn with a crochet lace skirt. Seeing the tee paired this way, I said, “okay… this CAN work.”
I’m a firm believer that fashion is at a point where everything and anything is in and that it’s all about how it is worn. I’m dubious on this one though. Can comic book tees be in? It looks like another “How I wore it,” just like my overalls, will be very soon.
