I found these pants when I was working on my room. I bought them at H&M four or five years ago. I didn’t wear them much because I never could figure out what to wear them with. I wore them to a few shows but I mostly wore these pants as costumes. I woke up this morning and decided that I wanted to wear them with this shirt. Unfortunately I couldn’t find that shirt. I’m hoping that it wasn’t a casualty of moving and shows up soon. I just threw on a t-shirt but later today I decided to try coming up with some outfits to wear these pants with.
Option 1: This is what I wore for most of the day. It’s a little too high school for me. I used to always wear tight pants and band t-shirts when I was that age. I put on my black cardigan when the weather cooled down and it looks a lot better that way.
Option 2: It’s pretty simple but it’s wearable for the summer. When I put it on I felt like I should be going to a Secretions show or something in this outfit but seeing the pictures now, it doesn’t look overly punk to me.
Option 3: This was way too warm for summer. It’s a look that I could wear in WA, though. I like touch of yellow so that it’s not only black, white, grey, and red. That’s one of the problems with these pants. My outfits always look so White Stripes-y to me.
Option 4: Sorry for blinding you with this one. I mostly put it on to see if the shirt I can’t find would look okay because it is also a button down. The pattern clashing here is actually growing on me.
In conclusion, these pants are hard to wear. I’m trying to decide if I should let them go or not. Feel free to offer opinions. I won’t be offended if you say they’re hideous and should be burned.
