I have two treasures this week: this outfit, which has many of the pieces that I have been wearing repeatedly over these past few weeks, and this song “All I Need” by Noname featuring SPZRKT. Though a favorite song does not seem related to fashion, I beg to differ. I think music, whether you listen to rap, classical music, country, indie, whatever, affects what we wear, and you could argue that maybe our outfits affect what music we listen to as well, because the feelings that we attribute to what we are wearing, ergo a whimsical top with pants, might make us want to listen to music that has a light feeling as well.
I have been listening to this song a lot, as I really enjoy its lightness and I love NoName Gypsy’s voice, but the beat and rap to me ground it, making the piece light and heavy at the same time. Am I making any sense at all? I guess it doesn’t really matter, music is open to interpretation.
I think elements of this song can be found in this outfit. Their is a lightness and heavyness in it, and I accomplished that through pairing a grayish-black t-shirt, dark sunglasses, and a black necklace with light jeans, my favorite pink/taupe mules that I have been wearing everywhere , and a pink backpack.
Since the weather has been around 70-80 degrees I have found this outfit perfect for summer, and I like how I’ve been able to incorporate my keenness towards dark colors into my summer wardrobe.
