Band Tee + Pleated Skirt

Random fact: I like listening to Rock music. It’s one of my favorite genres of music, but I only listen to a handful of bands like Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, Paramore to name a few. I’ve heard of Metallica, however I can’t name one song from them. Nonetheless that did not stop me from purchasing this badass shirt.

Jacket: H&M | Top: Topshop | Skirt: H&M | Shoes: ASOS (similar)

Band tees are a major trend this season. It’s a way to showcase your love for your favorite band; which is why it’s a bit funny that I’m wearing a Metallica shirt but haven’t listened to any songs by them. *shrugs* In my defense, this shirt is pretty cool and the distressed holes in the shirt made me want it even more. Basically, fashion made me do it. I decided to pair this with a metallic pleated skirt (another huge trend) since the pink and silver goes well together. Also, I like the juxtaposition between casual and dressier pieces together. One thing I wished I did differently was instead of tucking my shirt in, I should have maybe tied it in a knot to add more shape in my figure. Additionally, I should have worn boots to add some height since the skirt was a bit long but it’s a lesson learned. All in all, I am happy with the way the outfit turned out especially with the bomber jacket. It added more edge to the outfit. Originally I was going to wear this with a sequin bomber jacket but that probably wouldn’t have worked out well, thank goodness my friend talked me out of it.

What’s some of your favorite bands? Let me know!
