This is kind of embarrassing. I went and bought the Gucci t-shirt. And there’s no hiding from the shame. Not because I jumped on the same sartorial bandwagon as Kimmie K and Kylie. Not because I’ve embraced logo mania.  And not because I subjected my one year old son to the same humiliation with a mini version. But because I am two years too late to the party.

The trend first emerged in 2016. Back then I wasn’t feeling it. There was a sort of man-repeller vibe to the whole thing that I couldn’t get on board with.

However, it did not escape my notice that suddenly everyone was wearing Gucci. Creative director Alessandro Michele has transformed the brand into a maximalist Mecca.

The clothes are loud, bold and eccentric. Simply put, they are the uniform for the uber-minted under-35 Millennial.

The iconoclast in me considered the fuschia metallic dress complete with signature oversized Swarovski bows. But who am I kidding – round faces and high necklines (classic Duchess of Cambridge), just don’t work. Of course, I persevered and got through a mountain of saturated zingy patterns and coat dresses with bows – but neither my complexion nor my wallet could take it.

And since I am a tryhard fashion sheep in wolf’s clothing (see here), I decided to jump off that particular bridge and get the tee  – coz everyone else was doing it. So here it is – worn with a pair of high waisted Frame cargo pants and Charlotte Olympia slides. Not sure if this vibe is particularly my style – but at least I can say, “been there, done that, got the T-shirt”.

How to Wear the Gucci T-shirt?

The Gucci logo t-shirt literally goes with everything and anything. But I suggest keeping things casual. Because there’s nothing worse than trying to dress up a branded t-shirt. Wear yours with a relaxed denim jacket, cropped pants and a plain white sneakers (not Gucci!).

Congratulations on your honest post! I think the nicest part of it is that you got this Gucci T-shirt and gave it a bit of your own personality, and to me that’s the very essence of fashion: otherwise, everyone would only be wearing uniforms. I myself don’t have anything from the brand, but there are quite nice things I would like to have if I could afford them.

I bet it was the best decision you ever made. Don’t be sad that you came onto the bandwagon late. The Gucci train is still hungry to have more come on it.

Too late or not for the trend it’s not really important. It is in the way you wore or handle it with a style that suited to your taste. I love the way how you wore it Hanushka 🙂 .

Catching up with the trend is not bad as long as you can wear it with high confidence. You look good on you Gucci T-shirt and if I got a chance to wear the same thing, why not? I’ll totally grab it. Afterall, it’s Gucci.

Yes, I’ve seen this Gucci shirt all over social media.I kinda like it though everyone’s already wearing it I just can’t afford it.It looks good on you and I like how you styled it.

Well to be fair, the people that buy Gucci don’t do it to be subtle. If you have that shirt I would suggest you be proud of the money you invested in it, otherwise it won’t make you happy and then it would just have been a waste.

That is not bad though. For me I think buying clothes that are the same from celebrity once or twice is not bad. I mean if you feel the style go for it. But if you keep on buying clothes because Kim K wore those then that is actually bandwagon. Well that is just for me.
