Playing Dress Up is for Adults
You may have enjoyed playing dress up as a kid, putting on costumes and bouncing between different eras and attitudes (Egyptian princess meets ’20s flapper, Little Mermaid goes camping, and on and on). Back in the day, getting dressed was an adventure and beyond observing cool codes. Fashion wasn’t a serious matter, but having fun was.
Remembering this theatrical perspective brings me back to what made me fall in love with fashion many years ago—the ability to use clothing to craft an identity or persona. In fact, my fashion interests then were even more expansive. One day I’d be donning glitter and feathers, the next wearing basketball shorts and cowboy boots.
In the spirit of playing dress up, give into your inner Renaissance queen or perhaps show the world your gothic inclinations. Playing dress up is for adults, so shop our selection of bold, fantastical pieces below.
