Backwards Shirt

backwards // no longer greyI like turtlenecks and fake turtlenecks and basically everything that goes up to and or covers my neck. With my new hair, it’s especially nice to have things that go up to my neck. But a lot of sweaters and shirts don’t have a high neck, or they have buttons on their front, or I’ve spilled spaghetti down the front (but not if I’m practicing clean eating). So I turn them around. I do it a lot. A lot a lot (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).  It turns out that I am not the first to do so. It was actually a fad in the 50’s. Girls would turn their cardigans around, to get two sweaters out of one. More recently, for a punk challenge on  Project Runway Elena Slivnyak turned her model’s jacket backwards on project runway and it looked so awesome.

Wear a silky under layer underneath cardigans when putting them backwards, so that they don’t bunch on your chest. Try fitted and unfitted things to wear backwards, and cut off the label so that you don’t get a red mark where it scratches you. Now go forth, young one and conquer the world in your backwards garments.

  2. That’s my kind of shirts but I have long hair, I agree with you, it looks much better with short hair like yours! 🙂
