I’m a little behind with our How To Wear series, I’m afraid–here it is March already, and I haven’t shared a single outlandish outfit! Well, obviously we need to remedy that, so I busted out a quick few ideas for you here today. OK, sure, it’s a bit of a cheat, as far as themes go, but whatever–I’m considering it just a bit of practice. Keeping my hand in the game. Whatever the game is, I guess? I don’t even know that phrase actually means, to be honest.
If you’re new to my How To Wear column, or if you need a reminder, please know that these are all far-fetched daydream ensembles. There is nothing practical or budget-friendly about them–it’s all wishful thinking and extravagance! So you’re probably not going to find reasonable price-points or outfits featuring sensible or pragmatic items. And I imagine most people reading this are of an age where they can dress themselves and their wardrobe choices are no longer monitored closely or chosen for them. You’re all probably folks who know what you like and have a snazzy sense of style and you don’t need someone – especially someone whose idea of formal attire is a polyester turtleneck with psychedelic mushrooms dancing all over it – giving you fashion advice on how to wear this season’s It Thing.
TLDR; this is definitely not that sort of How To Wear.
So without further ado, I present to you How To Wear Two Recent Interviews With Really Amazing Artists. Yes, well. While the theme is not as imaginative it could be, the marvelous artists here led to some splendid inspiration! So, whether you’re a goth puppet master or a folksy, bluesy, death-siren…er…well…I am not going to bother finishing that thought because you’re probably neither one. I know I’m not.
But still, we can dress like one!
