Fashion evolves, we all probably know that, in every facet, but what’s the most important thing is Styling. Although, I wouldn’t wear Rompers, there are some Unisex pieces that if styled to perfection, would look just as great as any exclusive men’s wear piece.
This editorial features a Unisex “Shirt Dress”, as described by the Nigerian Fashion brand, JFT Clothing, which I interpreted with an infusion of my style. This piece is off the BASIC collection SS17 of the brand, now before I talk about Styling, I actually really appreciate the quality of this piece, from fabric to details and finishing, top notch!
Now when you have the task of styling a Unisex “Shirt Dress” as a guy, what are the things that should come to mind? Unisex in this context means clothing that’s designed to be suitable for both sexes, so if it should be suitable for a guy, what’s the closest exclusive men’s wear to it and how would you style it? This led me to think of our very own African KAFTAN!
See the progression guys? Now I’m thinking African. Next step is to move to the actual styling. I’m a huge respecter of details in styling, everything matters I believe. I know if I’m wearing a Kaftan, I’d love to wear a cap with it, the interpretation being that it’s also appropriate for this look, and since the piece is plain, a patterned cap would do just fine!
Accessories – Still talking about details, I decided to use a neck piece courtesy of my collaboration with the brand @westbrookbracelets and also a pair of plain black sun shades by @haute.signatures to give the look a more sophisticated edge. Piece by Piece guys, we have styled a “Unisex Shirt Dress” and it looked NOTHING like a dress .. The Limitless Power of Styling!
Thank you for reading guys, feel free to drop your comments. How would you have styled this piece? Have a wonderful day!
