What I Heart Now: Comic Book Tees

I’m a serious Internet surfer. No joke. It’s appalling how much time I spend in front of a computer screen. If there was a common-law type law (sorry for the redundancy) between humans and computers, I would absolutely and completely be considered married to my Macs (yep, I have more than one).

During fashion week, all of them – New York, London, Milan, and Paris, my time spent in front of the computer shoots way above normal, if that’s possible. I went to art school – SCAD – so naturally, I’m drawn to the avante-garde. But avante-garde is seen everyday. I have to seek it out. When it comes to clothing, I get my avante-garde fix by seeing the street trends during fashion week. The trends of people attending the shows can sometimes be wild and too over the top but these are the most fashionable people out there – I’d be silly not to take a clue from them for future trends.

One of the trends I noticed at New York’s spring 2013 shows was comic book tees worn with a dressed-up skirt or slacks. I even saw a Bulls basketball jersey worn with a black, pleated maxi skirt. There were a couple of times when I said, “really?” but then I saw a comic book tee worn with a crochet lace skirt. Seeing the tee paired this way, I said, “okay… this CAN work.”

I’m a firm believer that fashion is at a point where everything and anything is in and that it’s all about how it is worn. I’m dubious on this one though. Can comic book tees be in? It looks like another “How I wore it,” just like my overalls, will be very soon.

    I like this idea…but then, I have a definite weakness for geeky t-shirts!

    Hmm, can they be in? I sure hope so because I have a black Justice League shirt that I love. I usually wear it with my fanciest sweat pants but I’m liking the crochet lace skirt look. I could try that some time.

    Ooh, fun! I have a Wolverine t-shirt that’s 20+ years old that I like to pair with a denim mini and/or a blazer. I don’t really wear a lot of lace or maxi skirts, but I could totally imagine that working!

    I didn’t know how I felt about this trend either at first, but I just got myself a Superman pullover and love how I can easily dress it casually with a pair of jeans and wedges or dress them up with a pair of lace shorts and booties. I’m liking this look a lot, it’s like we get to be kids again displaying our favorite things on our shirts!

    I love comic book tees too! Second only to battered concert tees.

    OH YES!! You definitely need a “How I wore it” with a comic book tee because that would be amazing. I love comic book tees – my inner geek jumps for joy each time I wear mine.
