Naked Vice Backpack / Bared Shoes / St Frock Shirt / Zulu Crop
Recently I’ve come to a realisation: Backpacks aren’t nerdy?
Allow me to explain. All throughout my High School experience I was increasing focused being ‘cool’, though simultaneously was a nerd. A big fat, two-strapping, Backpack wearing nerd!
For you see, all the cool girls had these vintage tote style school bags, which could only be ordered from the campus up state, and had been band from being sold at our campus due to creating back problems. While the un-cool kids bummed around in the ‘back safe’ backpacks, which were by the way, UGLY AS. This you see is where my distain for the common rucksack spurned. As you can probably guess I was never allowed to by one of the cool totes, and blamed my unpopularity on my mothers forcing me to wear the ‘back safe’ bright blue backpack (apparently it didn’t occur to me at the time that it might just be the fact I was a member of both science club and Choir, as well as being just generally awkward).
High school had pretty much tainted my views of the humble backpack. That is, until Alexander Wang brought out the Skeletal Prisima Pack, and I began to understand, that maybe backpacks wern’t nerdy, I just was. :/
Since this realisation, like all other once avoided clothing Items (see: ripped jeans and turtle necks), I’ve kind of become obsessed. Especially with those of the leather variety.
In this particular look, I’ve teemed the oh-so-cool-and-in-no-way-nerdy NakedVice backpack with leather shorts, a cropped high necked swim shirt, and layered long sleeve shirt, really working that sports-lux vibe.
Comment bellow: Are there any trends from back in the day you’re loving now? Are you a keen bean for the backpack like me? Or are you a fan of the dorky-dad sandle known as the Birkenstock?
