I dislike fashion norms. “It’s springtime! Don’t wear dark colors!” “It’s winter time! Why are you wearing orange…?” Lads. Don’t let the fashion norms control you; rather, influence them! Inspire them! Wear what you want to wear, no matter the time of the year (as long as you don’t put your body temperature at risk…?). Are you willing to defy the times? GREAT! Because there’s a lot of neat fashion potential here. Denim jackets have always been super cute, but what’s even more cute are oversized denim jackets. There’s a vast array of them: black, medium wash, distressed…the list goes on! If you want to pick up a denim jacket this season, then I would suggest pairing them with a dress; sweater (on cold days, of course); or a loose, patterned spaghetti tank top. Affordable baggy denim jackets can be hard to find, but I’ve found thrift shops to be fairly promising in this realm. I’d suggest looking at Forever 21 as well. If denim jackets don’t interest you, then you should look into kimonos or bomber jackets. Kimonos look cute with nearly anything — especially shorts! — and bomber jackets tend to go well with ribbed crop tops. Rather than the usual black bomber jacket, I’d suggest looking for one with a neat design on the back. I personally don’t like flashy clothing, but bomber jackets are most definitely an exception to this. 

Like many other things in daily life, there are indeed sustainable options when it comes to your wardrobe! Consider thrift shopping, using a drying rack instead of the dryer, and not immediately placing your clothes into the dirty basket.
