Retro + Modern

This outfit is a testament to how weird this summer has been: it’s inconceivable that I was still able to wear these pair of thick jeans, this top with its high collar and long sleeves, and these shoes, and all these dark colors, in May. I wanted to wear this top again because I’ve been struggling to style it – the collar gives me a retro, 1960s vibe, but it’s a bit big on me, and so far, the only way I can think of to wear it has been to tuck it into bottoms. Here I tried to match the maroon cuffs and stripes to my maroon shoes, and balance the slightly fussy design of the top with the simpler, more streamlined bottom. It works, but I’m still looking for more ways to make this top more versatile.
