A crazy look
It’s the new back-to-school fashion fad: the look of ‘weird girl‘ is going viral on Instagram. The muses of the movement: the Hadid sisters or Rihanna, to name but a few. To get started, the goal is to put on everything that comes to mind, without even worrying about matching clothes or creating harmony. We overload with XXL shoes and we dare all the gold, silver, vintage, stone or bakelite jewelry possible and imaginable. We again wear a dress or a skirt over jeans (yes, you read that right). We mix a touch of vintage with hand-knitted knits, materials and prints that swear, and XXL jeans on Buffalo type sneakers. To punctuate this look: a large scarf or a hat, a balaclava and fluorescent glasses: in short, you can never do too much. The trend delights young people and upsets their parents, who find it difficult to adhere to the concept, we can understand that. But let them be reassured, they haven’t failed in their education, it’s just a crazy trend that agitates teenagers.

Where is that from ?
From the streets, of course, from social media stars and various recent upheavals in the fashion world. Teenage fashionistas today start from the essential principle that we dress to be comfortable, to assert ourselves and not to fit into a box. The style ‘come as you Are‘ takes the lead. We no longer seek to sublimate her silhouette, we play with her look, it’s fundamental. This tendency to layer up and above all not to wear clothes at your waist has been worn for a few seasons by highly trendy brands like Balenciaga. This way of dressing is also freely inspired by the grunge movement of the late 90s and the famous wave Y2K (translate: Year2000, or the fashion of the 2000s at the Spice Girls). With, as a colorful supplement, a bit of madness Made in Japan as seen in the Harajuku district of Japan, a hotspot for crazy Japanese fashion.
This Y2K-influenced fashion is therefore maximalist, playful, colorful, and it also reminds a little of the punk looks of the mid-70s. The most critical will tell you that you would swear that these young people dressed in black, but do don’t listen to them, they just have to get used to it.
How do we wear it?
Want to let yourself be carried away by the flow ” weird », so put away your prejudices and dare whatever comes into your head. Remember that everything goes with everything, if you have decided so. And what’s interesting is that you can get into it gradually, wearing just a polka dot top over plaid pants; to start… Mix a rock jacket and corduroy, sequins and sportswear, a football shirt under a cocktail dress, then let yourself be carried away…
