Comic Book Fashion

Fashion seems to be embracing the culture of ‘geek’ recently. People went crazy for those Topshop Geek tees that have since been ripped off by every high street store known to man, and now it’s the turn of the comic book to influence patterns on every clothing item going. I don’t think these are being jumped upon so fervently as their predecessors as they hint that the wearer might in fact quite like perusing the shelves of Forbidden Planet or know the words to every Batman film ever released (guilty!).

Coat: Warehouse
Crop top: Primark £4
Necklace: Primark £4
Skirt: Urban Outfitters £35 
Trainers: Converse
Scarf: Topshop

I wore this outfit on a day trip to Edinburgh during my recent Bank Holiday break in Scotland, and as much as I wanted to wear my vintage heeled boots, I knew a day of trekking around on cobbles would not a happy pair of feet make. So I went for opaque tights and my ever faithful and extremely battered Converse. It dressed down what I could potentially wear to a cocktail bar on a casual night out. I do love a multi-tasking outfit!

I found this crop top in Primark a few weeks ago, and although I do NOT have the washboard stomach required for this tiny piece of clothing I went and bought it. “I’m a slave to takeaway fashion!” I thought, as let’s be honest, would I have bought it if it wasn’t £4?

But you know what goes great with crop tops? High waisted stuff. I practically live in my high waisted jeans, and this pencil skirt from Urban Outfitters has quickly become my go-to piece to wear when I’m bored of jeans (which is becoming more frequent as Spring attempts to come through). Lo and behold, an outfit was born!
