When it comes to indie fashion, you’re a little bit gun-shy.
And for good reason. Remember the silk puff-sleeve shirt that made you look like an infant being eaten by a snake? Or the skirt whose tassels got caught in the bus door? Of course, both pale in comparison to the cropped bomber jacket that still gets your officemates humming the Top Gun theme song whenever you walk by.
Those memories may haunt you forever, but don’t let them dictate your future. Gr.dano’s threads may change your mind about indie fashion permanently. Design duo Jill Giordano and Brian Scheyer create flirty skirts, textured tops, and tailored dresses that have enough flair to distinguish you from the crowd, but come in comfortable cuts and neutral colors classic enough to pass the office test.
They’re the sorts of clothes that look as fun paired with motorcycle boots as they do with stilettos. Which means you can finally pull the indie trigger.
Without shooting yourself in the foot.
