Since quarantine began, my style has shifted toward classic staples that will work year-round. Think rigid jeans, loafers, and striped tees. My favorite Saint James Breton striped shirt makes an appearance at least twice a week. Hopefully no one on Zoom has noticed… A cashmere crewneck isn’t really a surprise for a warm-weather staple. I have relied heavily on a strong rotation of Everlane’s version since they launched them a few years ago. They’re just slightly relaxed in fit and come in a litany of colors to match your mood or your outfit. It doesn’t matter if I’m wearing a floral fall dress or sweatpants, I can always count on my Dr. Martens to add a cool hint of grunge to my look. If you divide the Logo NHL Chicago Blackhawks Hockey T-Shirt Additionally,I will love this cost by the amount of times I’ve worn them (about a million times, BTW), they have basically paid for themselves. Plus, they’re comfy as hell to walk in, which is really all that matters to me right now. My most prized affordable closet staple is an Express x Karla ribbed tank. Sadly, they aren’t available anymore, but I do have a few other wallet-friendly treasures that I constantly wear and can always rely on to complete a look. The first is a pair of real leather colorblock Weejuns loafers. The second is a faux-leather blazer from Mango; you can shop a similar version here.
Typically, Gogo Graham’s Instagram features her clothes on other models. During COVID-19, however, Graham has been the Logo NHL Chicago Blackhawks Hockey T-Shirt Additionally,I will love this focus of her own account and look book for her eponymous brand. In a self-portrait series, the 30-year-old designer poses in an array of clothes from her newest collection: bodysuits with cutouts fastened with leather belts, a plaid, off-the-shoulder crop top, and a pleated miniskirt with a leather covering. “I didn’t really want to bring people inside. That’s not necessarily safe for them,” she says. “I thought it was probably safest for me to do it myself in my apartment.” And so, her self-portrait series was born. Graham has been designing since 2014, jumping off from her own experience getting dressed. “I wanted to start designing and creating my own brand when I saw that there were not any other brands out there run by a trans woman, making clothes for trans women,” she said. “When I started out, all of the brands that were using trans models were primarily created by cis men with surely the best intentions, but who did not necessarily understand trans narratives and who would present them in a way that didn’t feel authentic or relatable to me.” Since the label’s inception, Graham has been focused on using a mélange of mostly upcycled materials that range from “vintage, contemporary, high- and low-quality fabrics,” which she mixes into a cohesive look. “I try to combine low-quality material with advanced historical and contemporary construction techniques that I’ve learned working in factories and applying conventionally low-quality finishes to high-quality materials,” she says.
