It's not easy to make a sartorial statement at a concert (the good kind, we mean), but for blogger and freelance stylist Hannah Richtman of The (Fashion) Hash, it's basically a walk in the park. And it's no wonder why. The 22-year-old Wisconsin native actually grew up performing in musical theater, so she knows a thing or two about originality, self-expression, and, of course, music.
For Richtman, music and fashion blogging are a two-way street: "I love artists who are exactly who they want to be, despite what’s 'hot right now.' It’s so empowering! I like to think my personal style is just as genuine. Both music and blogging allow for honest expression and, in turn, create incredibly supportive communities."
That's why it was a match made in heaven when our friends at Converse sent Richtman to the Rubber Tracks concert at The Sinclair in Boston with a pair of black Chuck Taylors with a studded collar, and challenged her to create a look and playlist to show how she gets loud. As you'd expect, she nailed it. Keep reading to see how the music-obsessed blogger styled her kicks, and check out her must-listen playlist.
Whoa! We totally love this look — give us a breakdown!
"Fun and flashy and down to party! I always try to add a bit of humor to my lewks. Being 5-foot-2 helps. The silver studs inspired me. Originally, I wanted to go full monochrome and pair them with the silver dress [from beacon's closet], silver socks, and silver hoops [by Ann-Sofie Back from VFILES], and call it a shiny, silvery day, but the cold front at the concert required an additional layer. Without a silver topper, I decided to go with the denim tiger [from Urban Outfitters' sale] — it’s equally fun, no?"
What do you like best about your black Chuck Taylors?
"They are SO comfortable and go with everything. Especially that one outfit you can never find the right shoes for. The answer is all-black Chucks, always. I'd also wear 'em with a kimono, crop top, denim cutoffs, and Ray-Bans — or overalls, sports bra, and a jacket tied around [my] waist."
What was your favorite part of the concert?
"The clothes! The Desert Sharks were wearing some amazing tees (vintage, I’m assuming), and METZ lead singer’s baby-blue Converse stole the show for me. [I was also most excited to see] Desert Sharks! The feminist in me was tickled at the sight and sound of these rock stars. Girl power! (Can I join?)"
Now, the fun part! What's your playlist that evokes the Rock Craft spirit?
"To me, the Rock Craft spirit is about supporting up-and-coming artists who are proud to do their own thing. These artists exemplify personal style in music and in fashion. These are some of my favorite songs pulled from my summer jams!"
