I have seen this look a lot… about five years ago every other Orange County girl in California was rocking it – Ugg Boots and short jean skirts. Well, it was bad then and it’s not any better now.
I can excuse this look if your:
A) A genuine surfer. Maaaaybe you would wear Ugg boots when you’ve just come out of the water (even though I have never seen this being done… but lets just pretend for the sake of argument)
B) Caught in a moment of panic and just happen to put it on – aka. the fire alarm has gone off, or you are running to the shops to pick up some sugar that you forgot… and you were blind.
But, it’s un-excusable when it is worn as a well thought out fashion statement, because lets be honest – it’s really not.
Leave the boots at home.
If you can wear shorts then you really don’t need fur lined boots on for warmth… plus, there are enough cold and miserable days in England, so save the boots for when you really need them.
(Also, I’m not mad for those jean shorts or that faux-wripped up black jersey skirt…. but we can overlook that today.)
Let’s be honest, most of us don’t need to be wearing tie-dyed denim. None of us need to be wearing tie-dyed skinny denim with rouched ankle detailing – that is just ugly and unflattering. The whole look is relatively permissible until you get to her ankles…. okay, I said ‘relatively’ permissible. But seriously, avoid elasticated ankles – it’s really not a good look.
Balmain showed a lot of tie-dyed denim in their Spring/Summer 2009 collection, which started a bit of a manic following. It’s okay to engage in some strange denim trends, especially in the summer when you can just throw on a little white vest and sandals and be good to go – simple, cool and not too try-hard. So take note – if you want to wear tie-dyed denim either buy a pair that exceed the thousand pound marker (and watch envious onlookers drool) or keep it simple and don’t get a pair with elasticated ankles or any additional type of faff – because tie-dyed denim is loud enough on its own.
T-Shirt reads: ‘I was born to be trendy’
Don’t try to tell the world how cool you are by spelling it out on your shirt.
