Clothes That Are Attached to Accessories: the natural extension of stuck-together clothes

Never forget your necklace again

For almost as long as The Fashion Police has existed, we’ve been fighting the good fight against Stuck Together Clothes, and wondering just why it is that fashion designers seem to believe we’re too stupid to know which sweater goes with which shirt ourselves, and need them to make that decision for us – and then to stitch the two items together, just to make sure we don’t get it wrong.

Now, however, it seems the Stuck Together Clothes movement is expanding to include accessories. That purple top you see above you? The necklace is attached to it. Because there’s just NO WAY we peons could’ve chosen a necklace to wear with that top ourselves, is there? No, we need Ella Moss to do it for us. And she has. The combination is available to buy at Revolve Clothing, where it’s $78 in the sale. We wouldn’t call it a crime of fashion, because the end result isn’t ugly, but it does make us wonder what other new frontiers of stuck-togetherness are waiting to be discovered this year?

    Well, last week a went shopping (I’m from Spain) and I have to say I found two or three tops in different shops with necklaces attached to them, and I thought the same you say: It’s not that ugly, but was it really necessary?

    I think that girls who buy clothes like that are those who have never done laundry in their lives.

    Ok confession time: I bought a similar green t-shirt in Primark and I must say: I wear it quite often, in summertime that is 🙂
    I ‘d like to think mine looks cuter and there are no weird knots on it… So maybe it’s different irl or I’m just a big fashion victim *lol*

    Ps K:I do my own laundry for a few years now, no need to worry 🙂

    Yeah, when I go shopping I always worry I’m not going to find a necklace the exact colour of the top… :-J

    I eagerly await the time coats will come with bags. You know, instead of pockets. Sewn into sides. Just like it normally looks when you carry a bag.

    Sadly enough, some people out there actually OUGHT to have their clothing chosen for them…

    Why would you wear a necklace that’s THE EXACT SAME COLOR as your top anyways? Isn’t that defeating the point of an accessory?

    Wow, that is weird. Yes, we all know that purple goes with purple. lol.
    I guess it’s an offshoot of those tops with beading to look like a necklace?

    I once had a shirt like that. It had a little silver flower attatched to some invisible jewelry cord, and also had a pretend camisole under the t-shirt part. It was possibly my favourite, most “fashionable” item of clothing.

    I hasten to add that I was nine at the time. ;P

    Vince, Alice & Olivia and C&C made tops like this (all around the same time too). Except the necklace was a bunch of tangled chains rather than that….knotted thing. I actually thought they weren’t bad looking, but I’d rather just buy a top and a necklace by themselves to mix and match with more pieces (although I think they may have been detachable, not sure).

    Yes, how does one wash this shirt? Besides, who wants to wear the same necklace with the same shirt every single time?
