My younger brother made fun of me when I rescued these pants from the “give away” pile – they’re his old Little League baseball pants (as you can see from the tell-tale dirt scuff on one knee). But since I have very few pairs of interesting pants, I kept them and spent a good half-hour yesterday trying to figure our how to wear them. They looked really cool with my leather jacket, but I’m saving that for another day since I’ve been wearing it so much lately. I settled on this outfit instead, and then later realized that it really resembled a couple of looks from YSL SS08. It seems like I’m always really late to adopt trends or put together my own spinoff of a look – this one is over a year old! I’m not one to immediately denounce a trend once it reaches a certain expiration date, but it strikes me as somewhat weird that it took so long for me to come up with this interpretation. Maybe that should be my New Year’s resolution – don’t be so slow!
