Styling band shirts

Styling specific items of clothing is a concept which I am hoping to explore more on here! I don't always have money to buy new trends and pieces to style, so needed a new concept to re-style pieces I already own. The first installation was inspired by my post where I wore my Muse shirt, as I had comments from people who hadn't worn band shirts since their teens or who didn't feel comfortable styling them. Band shirts are so easy to style, in my opinion, and are also a fab way to support bands since so many seem to be breaking up due expenses. There are some really well designed and cool band shirts nowadays, meaning it isn't always obvious that you are wearing merch.







Shirt- Blossoms via HMV     Skirt- Topshop last year (alternative)   Shoes- Converse (alternative)   Bag- Cambridge Satchel Company   Soot Sprite pom pom-Bought at a convention 

I am sliiightly obsessed with Blossoms music at the moment. They have such a unique, uplifting sound and I am SO excited to see them in October! This outfit was a clever pun by myself. I like the mix of the embroidered floral skirt with the band shirt. (See what I did with the flowers on the skirt and the name of the band?...) The skirt tones down the dark shirt and adds a more feminine touch, as well as pops of colour from the embroidery, which I like. To keep with the casual vibes of the band shirt, I paired the look with glittery Converse, which are not only super comfy but go hand in hand with the tones in the shirt.
Naturally, I also added my new bag, which may never leave my side again- sorry about that. You've probably all noticed the pom pom-on bag trend, but I stepped it up slightly by adding a soot sprite because I am definitely a Studio Ghibli nerd. Not only is my little soot sprite buddy absolutely adorable, but he/she adds a element of quirk to the outfit and helps with the dressed down, casual vibe of this look.

  2. Very stylish look! I don't think I ever owned a band T-shirt and if I did I properly used it as a PJs.
