Kitsch is in.
Kitsch fashion Queen? Yes absolutely. Kitsch was something that was considered trashy, gaudy, over-done or distasteful but now kitsch fashion is considered uber cool like a piece of art, something that is messy and over-done and gaudy and still beautiful, like an unfinished piece of art. Think about glittery pairs of heels, all kinds of crazy patches on denim jackets, ever-so-famous milk carton bag. Kitsch fashion is what catches your eye, mix of electric prints, crazy colors and accessories. Well who doesn’t love looking like a piece of art? I certainly do!
Drawing inspiration from the kitsch fashion, here is the second post of *I don’t do basic basics* series with Jabong. If you live in Delhi, tank tops and shorts are a summer uniform. I tried to give a twist to this combination with these amazing embroidered shorts from Sangria at jabong.com . What did I tell you about investing in statement pieces for your wardrobe? These shorts truly are a piece of art and the fabric is 100% cotton, perfect for the hot Delhi summers.
Taking inspiration from kitsch fashion, I added a pair of big mirror and pom-pom earrings on my army boots. The boots look oh-so-kitschy. I paired the shorts with an army green tank top and knotted the tank top. I did a side pony tail with a small side swept braid. I added a suede black choker and also made a tribal tattoo on my neck. I completed the look with a classic pair of round Lennon sunglasses. So kitschy, just like a piece of art.
So what do you think about this look?
