The handkerchief silk shirt is an item has been in fashion for a while. That makes this post quiet late in some way. But I had to highlight this fashion item any way. I call it the ‘Pimp shirt’. To me, it looks like a shirt a pimp would wear. Or at least it would be worn by someone with a peculiar taste that adds strong cologne and wearing rings on every finger of the hands. During my childhood, those kinds of people would wear that shirt. But you know fashion, it doesn’t move ordinarily. This shirt also reminds me of a late Dutch singer who is called Andre Hazes. He used to wear these types of shirts during a time where that blouse to me was hideous. Of course now it is retro, chic and it’s wearable. Find our chic ways to wear it, where they are available and the African variants of the ‘Pimp shirt.’
American celebs, such as Tyga, drake, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé have been spotted with this ‘Pimp shirt’. And even our Afro swagger: Solange has been spotted with this severely printed top. She also rocked one with African print by Boxing Kitten.
Here are the ones that are available online.
