Well, I am not in a band, and yes you may have guessed (obviously) neither a drummer! But, I used to want to play the drums, hence the training-wheels of drumsticks seen below. This is what enters my mind when I wear these Tartan trousers, because it's just too easy to make them look like clown suit pants. Therefore, I decided to taper the trousers, and given the roomy space that it had initially it completely made sense. Excess may also be let out easily if I prefer a looser fit.
When wearing any type of plaid it's either you commit to it or not. Usually a plaid pattern lover is committed to wearing it and doesn't mind standing out considering its daring aesthetic, because there's a proud plaid moment that eventually happens.
Plaids can be as intimidating as wearing flashy brights or colour blocking to some people. However, the beautiful part about expression in one's clothing is that even a very shy person can wear bold and bright colours or enormous prints that scream "hey, I am in control!" The same goes for an assertive person who dons a soft delicate palette of muted tones. I tend to like the nice surprises that are hidden in the melodies of people's clothing style.
In every thread, silhouette selection, simplicity of jewellery or shoe choice we create our character flow of style. We choose who we want to be daily: the dapper gent, a biker chic, the romantic, bohemian beauty, or even the classic sophisticate. Yet, still in our own way we add note after note by our selections to exude the ultimate score ... our style.
Though we may all wear the same colour or pattern on any given day there's nobody who wears it exactly like you! You don't even have to walk a certain way, just merely wearing it on your body makes all the difference. Hi, I am casually wearing plaid today and loving it!
I also paired this look with my new messenger bag from Oasap!
I hope your week is filled with sunshine!
