#OOTD: 12/3/15

Tonight I’m hitting the town with my best friend and housemate to celebrate his 20th birthday.  The club we’re going to plays a whole host of rock, metal, alternative and punk/punk-pop music.  With that in mind, I decided to dress like an extra from a 90s pop-punk music video.

Outfit of the day
If you squint at the crowd scenes next time you watch a punk-pop music video, I guarantee you’ll see at least three different girls wearing this outfit.

Shirt: Select
Crop top: New Look
Shorts: ASOS
Choker: The Vintage Room

Now I know this outfit is a little ambitious considering it’s only March, so if you’re not willing to brave the cold with bare legs then the shorts can easily be substituted for skinny jeans.  Bonus points if they’re acid wash and have ripped knees.

I also know that there will be plenty of my readers that don’t like wearing crop tops.  They’re still a work in progress for me – it took about 20 attempts until I took a picture where I was happy with how my tummy looked.  If you can’t stand the thought of wearing one, substitute it for a band t-shirt or a monochrome tee.

Any colour of plaid shirt will work well here: I went for a vibrant blue this time, but to get the full 90s effect more muted, earthy colours will work wonders.

When I head out I’ll be wearing my favourite black ankle boots, as pictured in my Christmas haul, and my faithful old leather jacket.

What do you think about this outfit?  What are some of your favourite 90s wardrobe essentials?  Let me know in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook!
