​Musings: My Slight Obsession With Band T-Shirts

You know when you get an outfit idea stuck in your head from something you see on Instagram, maybe a blog or even someone on the tube? That’s how I’ve felt about band tees for the longest time…

 Band Tees
As much as I love clean cuts, minimal lines and neutral colours there is something about the worn in, distressed look that I am drawn to. I’d been on the hunt for the perfect band tee for a while and when I was at #BigBloggerExpo a few weeks ago I was drawn into the Shop Two Three stand and the ones they had displayed. I loved the artistically placed rips and holes as well as the prints.
I think what I love most about these tops are that they instantly make you look a little edgy, I guess ‘cool’ and give you that dressed-down glam however you choose to wear it.
Leather luxe
Ripped jeans
In my dream wardrobe I’d be pairing mine with: ripped jeans, leather skirt, got out of bed hair, ponytail, treggings, skinny suede jeans, heels, boots, trainers, leather jacket, fringe jacket, suede jacket, plaid shirt. Or I’d attempt to glam it up with a loose chignon, choker, cigarette pants and those ‘barely there’ heels for a masculine meets feminine take on the trend. Hopefully Kim K, Aunty Rihanna and cousin Kendall can provide some outfit inspiration for you…
Where to get them:
·         eBay/Amazon
·         The concert you’re at
·         Record stores (if these even exist anymore)
·         Cool parent/friend/sibling/ Significant other’s wardrobe
I’m useless at anything DIY but from watching a few YouTube tutorials and reading this handy guide, I’m ready to get out the grater, razor, scissors and bleach to make my perfect tee.
If all else fails and the band tee look doesn’t suit you or me, it’ll make the perfect pyjama top.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
