fash•ion (fash-uh n) | backwards

Rules are meant to be broken.  That saying applies to many things in life, but even more so, fashion and styling.  Just because we buy one item, and it's meant to be worn a certain way, doesn't mean that's the only way.  For example this Gap shirt.  I'm actually wearing it backwards.

This isn't an homage to the once popular duo Kriss Kross who sang that one hit wonder, Jump, and wore their clothes backwards as a trend. However, I have to think that maybe they were on to something.  This shirt, although cute if worn the right way, just looked a lot cuter backwards and offered a totally different look which will be great for remixing.

What a perfect shirt to wear backwards (especially the way it frames the cute detailing on the dress!) I have one dress I only wear backwards!

That shirt looks great backwards. That lace is too cute to be hidden!

Creativity, yay! I often wear fitted dresses with a fuller skirt over them so the dress ends up looking like a top. Not groundbreaking but it expands my wardrobe! JUMP JUMP

Great idea, men's clothing seems a bit more tough to flip shirts around but I love the idea!

Love it! Very cute! I can't say I have anything that I wear backwards, but I do wear dresses as shirts sometimes.

Tabitha! I just posted about this on my blog today - multipurpose items!! I love your look with the shirt worn backwards! (I've tried that with a blouse I own but it doesn't look as great as your idea!!)

Actually, you inspired me for an upcoming post!

Oh yeah, I've worn skirts as dresses and dresses as skirts! Justifies my purchases if I can figure out more than one way to wear something :)
