“I dig music.”

Music has always played a huge part in my sense of style. Artists like David Bowie, Steven Tyler, Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, and Amy Winehouse are just a few of my favorite style icons. I’ve learned a lot from their poise and understanding of fashion as an art form over the years, and I appreciate that they are/were the kind of people who bring all of the arts together in everything they do. Fashion, art, music, movies, television, writing- there is an undeniable connection between them all. In the case of fashion and music, I often find myself becoming inspired by songs, music videos, and even album covers. Music creates a feeling, and fashion allows me to express it.
Of course, I also like wearing band tees for the sole purpose of showing some love for my favorite artists. They’re carefree, yet cool, and they’re actually an awesome way to make friends. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stepped out of the house wearing a band tee only to have someone tell me that they admire that artist too.The only annoying thing about band tees in the realm of fashion is the lack of appreciation that some wearers have for the actual musicians on their shirts. Remember when Misfits attire became wildly popular a few years ago? As someone who grew up listening to the band, it was strange to see people wearing that famous skull logo when they couldn’t name a single song.

Regardless, I love the influence that music has on fashion, and I wouldn’t trade my old concert shirts for the world. If you feel the same way, stock up with my latest Polyvore set.

  1. Agree 100% – I hate when people just wear band tees without any knowledge of the band, because how am I supposed to start a conversation with you if you just think the design is cool!? Also, I love that you have a record player – I’ve been collecting them for a while now, yours is adorable!

  2. Nothing like a good band tee! Although, I agree that wearing one if you don’t know/like the band irks me to no end. I have stacks of well loved ones though, and nowhere to put them!
