I think you have to be a certain type of chick to be able to pull off a Fred Perry top ….. and also want to!
When This is England was released I was obsessed with ‘Lol’ (Vicky McClure). She was fierce, cool as hell, stylish and ruthless, she became my idol. However, this goes back to taste and individual style and some people won’t get why I liked her ….. but I’m not asking you too. I’ve included a pic of her in my blog because she is flawless 👑
I have always been a fan of polo shirts and I think they look really good with skinny jeans and heeled boots, a tight midi skirt or denim shorts.
It was recently my birthday and I was bought the Fred Perry Star Embroidered Piqué Polo Shirt from the Bella Freud collection. They have sold out of pink but I have linked the same t-shirt in white at the bottom.
It’s like a ‘girly’ Fred Perry shirt as not a lot of their shirts are pink and have stars on. I really like their collection of polo shirts this season and I would definitely have more in my wardrobe if I could. However, they’re a little out of my price range to be making this a regular thing.
After the This is England phase I tried to dress like Lol as much as possible, almost a bit ‘Mod’ like. I bought old school Levi jeans and Fred Perry tops. I quickly realised that people didn’t get it and someone once shouted ‘who the f**k do you think you are’ and I thought what …..! Being an individual is unique but you have to be ready to take some criticism, but also plenty of compliments 💁🏼.
I wear what I want to wear and if you have your own style and you love being adventurous then I take my hat off to you ….. ⚡️
