Outfit ideas can come from anywhere. For me, it often comes from familiar images — often it’s the movies I’ve seen a million times. (For example, I’ve memorized Rachel Green’s most notable outfits from Season 6 of Friends.)
Today’s outfit is one I wore for Casual Friday last week. It’s also nearly identical to an outfit in the 1993 high school classic Dazed and Confused.
This look is an interesting combination of trends (the super-flares, the sky-high platforms) and the classic (the blue button-up). I’ve been loving flares lately, most recently with this black pair.
Here’s how the outfit looked on the character Pink (played by Jason London) in Dazed and Confused:
I love it when such simple individual items create such a dramatic — but low-key — look. (I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but just go with it.)
Over the weekend, I got the trousers hemmed just a smidge so I could wear shorter shoes, and I also got the top part of the leg tightened. I’ll have an padded photo after I’ve gotten the refurbished pants from the tailor.
Are you loving flares as much as I am?
