How To Maintain Your Emo Aesthetic During Dress Season
Warm weather is approaching quickly (we hope) and soon enough every girl will be rocking some sort of frilly dress and a pair of sandals. While going pantless is effing awesome, it can be pretty hard to find something that molds into your wardrobe if pastels and florals are so not your style.
Luckily, Galore is at your service for how to maintain your emo-esque aesthetic as the heat turns up.

The best way to pull off a dress without really wearing a dress is to throw on an oversized, distressed band tee. This automatically amps up the edge in your look all while keeping you cool and comfortable. Pair it with a pair of combat boots and a choker and you’re pretty much set. Just make sure you can name at least one song from the band on your shirt.
