If you were reading our blog back in November, then you’re probably aware that said month is a time to celebrate men’s tufted upper lips (and for a good cause, too). But if you’ve been ‘stubbling’ around ModCloth recently, you may have noticed — like I have — a growing number of mustache-themed products, such as the Chic Upper Lip Tote. With this form of facial hair gaining such popularity among women as well as men, it should be no shock at all that I have heavily featured it in this week’s Unisex-y!
As you can see, Product Launch Coordinator Lauren and I not only had a lot of fun playing around with the Plustache Toy, but we also pieced together a menswear-inspired ensemble for her to wear. We used the Chic Upper Lip Tote as the final accessory to a combination of the Rat-a-Tat-Hat, Sheerlock Holmes Top, Haute Handlebar Necklace, Spry as a Firefly Shorts, and Song of the Flame Belt. We then finished Lauren’s look with the Bow’n Places Heel, which nicely pulls together the hues of the whole outfit.
Since designers have been featuring a lot of plaid this season — and because, in my opinion, cowboys never go out of style — I decided to wear one of my favorite western shirts, which I then matched with blue jeans and grey loafers. My Chic Upper Lip Tote then groomed the whole look to perfection!
How about you? Are you charmed by the mustache trend, or does it make you bristle?
