Streetstylin’ with Giordano
Hoodie, Dress & Flannel Shirt: Giordano / Boots: Alexander Wang / Bag: Balenciaga
I will always remember Giordano as one of the iconic brands of the ’90s. I used to hoard their quintessential pique polos in a myriad of colors, sporting them in school with denim shorts and Birkenstocks + socks (yes, this footwear combination was considered “hip” in the late ’90s). Giordano was all about cool, casual basics back then, with their khaki trousers and sport polo best-sellers. Today, Giordano still stays true to its “essential and timeless fashion” aesthetic, but they’ve added more styles and designs to their inventory. They now have trendy varsity jackets, chic skirts and maxi dresses, preppy jumpers, no-frills hoodie jackets and so much more. But if you think Giordano pieces are only for the simple or preppy fashionistas, think again. When Giordano asked me to participate in another Street Style Challenge (the 1st time was HERE and HERE), I just couldn’t pass up on a great opportunity to challenge myself in creating a look that’s atypical for Giordano — something dark and more urban. I grabbed a basic maxi dress and did a top knot at the bottom, got a flannel shirt for some waist wrap-around action (did it side-tie style) and threw in a hoodie jacket. The result? A style miscellany of urban and grunge elements sprinkled with the signature “Kookie” rock-er charm. I think I may have found a new appreciation and love for hoodie jackets, especially when worn over the shoulders. And I might just start hoarding these Giordano hoodies in all colors too!
