You know how pretentious people say that fashion is art so you think they’re less shallow? I’m one of those people. But some clothes do actually become art just by being insanely impractical, rather than by virtue of being insanely beautiful.
This look is mainly for people that are paid to stand still and have photos taken of them, but I like to dress as impractically as I possibly can without actually dying (amateur).
This includes ballet tutus for country walks, lace stockings for housework and definitely ridiculously large rings EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE. I always have to take off about four massive sparklers before I can begin typing or I get chronic finger strain. I also tend to come home from gigs with bruised hands from clapping. But that’s OK because I looked good for a bit, smiling bravely through the tears of pain. Or I at least managed eccentric, which is when you look fashionable but not attractive. I’m cool with that.
The world of fashion adores impracticality. Give a fashion editor a dress that you can’t sit down in and is made of paper encrusted with priceless diamonds and they’ll rave about it being ‘THE’ number one look for spring. That’s FASHION darling, embrace it!
Here are some of my favourite examples of the impractical spectacular look:
Imagine being really fashionable and never being able to sit down no matter how tired you are from lugging your own body weight of metal studs around. Fashion is a tough world where even your clothes are definitely trying to kill you.
