Helloooo one and all and welcome to some more Zara goodness compliments of going way too hard at the mall last weekend! I have two more fabulous pieces of clothing to share with you guys today and tomorrow to conclude my series of buying literally all of the things. We explored my love of army green yesterday and now we’re going to revisit that same love in this here shirt dress a la GI Jane. Take a look:
I’m sure that after seeing the back of this badass button down, the title for this post makes a bit more sense!
One thing that I really am a fan of when it comes to clothing is random images and ironic/edgy/silly slogans. Obviously, this wayyy oversized shirt dress sports a pretty edgy nod to all things anarchy cool and I am nothing short of obsessed. The old school London punk scene gives me life, and I can so picture this shirt being worn by a filthy, pierced up, punked out boy or girl. Paying tribute to a music and lifestyle scene that speaks to me through my appearance and clothing is something that I never pass up the opportunity on, so clearly, this button down was a must buy.
The length of this trench coat/shirt/dress is what sold me on this purchase, asides from the color and the rule breaker adorned back. I love, love, love long pieces of clothing so the fact that this piece goes down to my mid-calves was a definite game changer. People typically think that us short girls (I’m 5’1) can’t wear long/oversized items but that’s not true. You just have to know how to style them and give yourself length in other ways. Which brings me to the next segment on how to wear this bad boy, because the options really are limitless:
- Over a pair of shorts and a crop top or bralette with a pair of combat boots or oxfords
- As an actual dress with a huge belted middle and chunky heels
- Over skin tight leather jeans/leggings
- As an overcoat on top of a frilly frock
And bear in mind that accessories are key:
- Oversized gold jewelry
- A fistful of rings (preferably ones that you wear on two fingers to give the illusion of fashionable brass knuckles)
- Frilly socks sticking out of your oxfords/heels/combat boots
- Black nails
- Gigantic hobo bag
- A bold attitude
Best believe that I’ll be having a blast incorporating this new statement piece into my outfits! 😀
So there you have it, the next wardrobe addition of my Zara Haul: Anarchy In The UK Edition! What do your clothes say about you? How would you style this top? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
P.S.: The last mark down price visible on the tag before my purchase price of forty dollars was seventy dollars. I am not sure of the original price.
