For someone whose closet mainly consists of black and white clothes, this is a pretty classic look for me.
Let’s start with the Tennis Skirt from American Apparel ($54). It’s one of the best skirts I own. “Why?” you ask, well it makes me feel like I’m straight out of the movie Clueless, and who doesn’t want to be Cher?! The pleated-ness is oh so 90’s. Also, it’s a very basic piece that you can just throw on, and since it’s black it goes with EVERYTHING.
I’ll take you down to my shoes, the Women’s 1460 from Dr. Marten ($125 from their website, but you can find these shoes anywhere for much less, I got mine for $35 from a thrift store). These are the classic Dr. Marten shoe. You see them everywhere, you fall in love with them, and you never want to take them off (actually you might want to take them off after 12 hours at a music festival. Warning : do not attempt). For me, these shoes are a necessity for anyone trying to pull off that “grunge” look.
Moving on. The top you see above is known as the Striped Baby Rib Crop T, also from American Apparel ($24). Since it’s cropped, it’s the perfect top to pair with high waist anything, or if you’re looking to show off a little midriff, this is the top for you.
Overall, the outfit is cute, comfortable, and simple and perfect for everyday life.
