The moment I saw it I was intrigued by the question : how am i going to style this shirt? The fabric is so thin and billowy it exudes femininity. Well it's truly a downside of thrifting when the store's stocks mostly comprise of women's fashion, hence the frequent purchase of clothes mostly belonging to the opposite gender .
At the same time the color and material of this piece immediately reminds me of a typical aged Volgograd citizen's clothing - namely because they are the most frequent visitors of the above-mentioned thrift store, and I can't blame them for preferring muted / earthy tones over trendy outfits that the youth here tend to wholeheartedly wear.
Shoving the question about what gender/ age-limit should wear this or that clothes, I tried to muster some courage to wear the shirt today. At first I came to a dead end when trying to decide what should I pair this shirt with. After a few times changing pants / jeans I decided to wear this with my Benetton V-neck sweater, a pair of indigo skinny jeans from Castro and I styled it up with a plum scarf and a watch.
The shirt's cut is very relaxed and this worries me a little bit because it really takes me out from my comfort zone of tight jackets and snug trench coats. My doubt is: should I tailor this shirt in order to get a better cut or should I leave it alone? (I envy those Japanese guys who can get away any kind of crazy cuts and shapes- super baggy/ super skinny). Any further suggestions or critiques about how should I style this shirt?
