I know it’s so bad for you but coke is my favourite thing in the world. *Queue the lectures*. It is my vice. I just can’t help my love for those bubbles. Despite warnings from my late Nanny – ” Give up that Coke look what it did to Robbie Williams”. Wrong coke nan sorry. Following on from a childhood of school trips to the Coca-cola factory – “Give that girl a can of coke” and collecting bottle labels religiously for merchanise, the feeling has not left me. As you know in the fashion world things always come full circle. Vintage is cool darling! With retro trends still reigning supreme it was only a matter of time before the tee’s came back “in style”. If they were to appear anywhere it would be on instagram. Low and behold..
The kings of vintage style cool, Wildfox are running lots of Coca-Cola styles including one of these retro tees above. A little more customised than the original with the drop arm hole. As always when pieces or styles come into “Fashion” a hefty pricetag comes with them. Being sold on ASOS for €80. Nah not for this girl. Not when you can pick up something almost identical and style it how you wish. That is exactly what i did.
Whilst online doing some holiday shopping for Daddy bear on Direct Sports i came across these tees. Perfect! At only €6 i had struck gold. It is always in the most unexpected places that you find the best treasure. I added two to the basket one in classic red and another in white with the infamous slogan. There are several styles to choose from here.
I just cut the sleeves off my self. Two minute job to rival the high end brand version. Really cool and cheap as chips. You can get as creative as you want, buy a larger size and cut the arm hole down to fashion a cool beach cover up.
I’ve been wearing mine tucked into a denim skirt with a contrasting bandana neckercheif. Also under pinafore dresses with my Superstars. I love the look of retro tees belted into high waisted or mom jeans. Such a cool way to rock this piece.
That’s me drinking and rocking the cola. How about you?
