This is for you, 20-something alternative ladies that are living the “how to dress like a grown-up” crisis! Have you always been a dyed hair/studded clothes/ripped tights kind of girl? Have you got piercing and tattoos you do not wish to hide? Then you’re in the right place. How to bring these stuff in your adult life? How to create a grown-up alternative style?
We should take one thing into consideration before we start.
You are not too old to follow your passions, and no one is allowed to judge you for the way you feel and the way you look.
It’s obvious that we do change at some point in our lives: we can’t pretend that everything is the same and just keep wearing a leopard hot pink mini-skirt with ripped tights and walk in the bank to ask for a mortgage. Well, in a beautiful utopian world that would be possible, but unfortunately it is not. Moreover, there must be something that makes us feel like we are growing into an adult life and not staying the same, trapped in our teenage mind and way of thinking.
Change is not necessarily bad: we can change into something we like more, without betraying our style and ideals.
Have a look to some items you can bring with you in your “grown-up but true to yourself” new life without feeling ridiculous!
Do you love skulls, always have, always will? Find some “serious” way to incorporate skulls in your look! You can barely see the skulls in this bag, and a dress pin is a fine detail to add to any garment. The printed t-shirt can be worn under a plain smart blazer!
Do you love the new galaxy mania and dream about flying in space and living on the Moon even if you’re 35? Try to dream with these earrings: they are very discreet, but you can lose hours just looking in them!
Studs shouldn’t be a problem, ever again. Office or goth club, 16 or 45 years old, they are nowadays accepted everywhere and for everyone! Well, maybe try to avoid to wear 5 cm long spikes to go to the court!
What about you? How do you incorporate the alternative style in your adult everyday life?
