BORROWED FROM THE MAN & THE MERMAID
What happens when you steal from a man's and a mermaid's closet?! I would say this outfit right here would be the result. Super flare pants with some androgynous elements is what a mermaid would wear if she were to rock the androgyny trend, right?
We've all seen the flare denims and I, for one, am a big fan of flare, be it pants or skirts. So it was natural for me to pick these pants that boast a super strong flare. Btw, did I ever tell you, I have a knack for picking such clothes that you would otherwise think twice before wearing. I give in to the temptation of clothes easily and I usually buy items depending on how different they are rather than counting the number of times I will be able to wear them.
So, coming back to the outfit, I feel like I am trying a lot of trends here - the gingham, the super flare, the bow but I absolutely love the way it looks. As you may have noticed, I usually downplay on my accessories & jewelry and had I adorned any accessory here, the look would have certainly gone down the drain.
If you analyze the items in the outfit, they are all so versatile. Needless to say, the pants make a statement and would look good even with a white tee. The Gingham jacket is your perfect bet for spring and summer, the pastel hues and the light texture make it chic and wearable. Do I even need to mention the blue shirt, it's a shirt, come on, you can wear it as it is too! Lol.
Androgynous outfits are a great way to make a statement and you don't need to look too far to get these items. Open your dad/brother/boyfriend/friend/husband's closet and borrow some items like the oversized striped shirt or a denim jacket and wear them with your relaxed fit jeans. Experiment with your outfits and find your own version of the dramatic 'man and mermaid' look
