So it’s getting warmer and the last thing you feel like doing is dressing up right? Fear not: Today we have for you an excessively casual outfit perfect for pretending you are still a teenager or loitering around the skate park eating McDonalds.
T-shirt – $2 Vinnies Mitchell
Denim skirt – $7 Salvos Jamison
Flannie – $5 Ys Buys Belconnen
Converse sneakers – $7 Vinnies Belconnen
This graphic tee is perfect for injecting a bit of colour and personality into your casual wear. You can dress it down with thongs and denim cut-offs for a day at the beach, or go a little more rock chick with a leather shirt and ankle boots for a night out. I actually found this tee in the kids’ section of Vinnies Mitchell, and I cannot stress this enough: if you are a relatively small person you will fit into some of the clothes from the kids section. And kids get all the best clothes! Trust me, half of my cool t-shirt collection was found in the kids’ section at an op shop so it’s definitely worth a look, you never know what hidden gems you might find!
The black denim skirt is a staple piece and will go with anything, Again, it can be dressed down with thongs or sneakers or dressed up with heels, sandals or boots.
The flannie is purely an accessory, although it will come in handy if you get cold or need a makeshift picnic blanket to sit on! These are a dime a dozen at op shops so it shouldn’t be a problem finding one.
Lastly, a pair of converse skate shoes complete our casual look. And man are they comfortable – it’s like walking on clouds! I cannot recommend the whole sneaker trend enough; seriously get on it while you can!
And there you have it: Your complete casual street look inspired by skater style, all for only $21!
