3 Street Style Trends I Saw When I went to Thailand

I went to Thailand for the first time last month  and boy it sure is a beautiful country and I need to go explore more of it. Thailand is also famous for its beautiful beaches , food and fashion. Bangkok is famous for shopping for most budgets . I didn’t play a typical tourist instead soaked in the vibes and walked the streets to experience the local street culture and the street style. I couldn’t help notice certain trends that were cool and amazing on the streets and can be an inspiration for your streetstyle.

Trend 1 : White T-Shirt Many Ways

Thai girls sure knew how to make one basic wardrobe work in more ways than one making that one piece of clothing versatile and definitely sustainable and If you are following my blog you would know how much I like to wear one garment many ways. I noticed that they styled the basic white tee with pretty much everything you name. They had teamed it with their skirts, jeans , Under their dresses , with their shorts , layered the tee , wore it like a dress . So if you have ditched your basic white tee for a while time to get it out of the pile and start having fun with it.

Trend 2: Dad Sneakers

There was a time when daddies wore these big sneakers that weren’t a fashion turn on but these have made a major fashion comeback and  the Thai are just sporting it in style. Dad Sneakers 2.0 are statement and almost a wardrobe must have if you love the idea of wearing the shoes that everyone notices. I saw this trend being sported everywhere there and boy I sure was noticing all those shoes. A fashion Must have this season is definitely the Dad sneakers ….

Trend 3. Mom Jeans

The high waisted mom jeans had a major street cred in terms of style in Thailand , In-fact the white tee, dad sneakers and Mom jeans were a major thing together . And if you haven’t tried this denim style yet , be inspired by the Thai to give it a try ,for I definitely give it a Thumbs Up . This style is here to stay and was fashionable back in time and has made a fashionable comeback . It should take your street style game a notch up

Isn’t it funny and ironic both that mom and dad styles are high on fashion meter.  Just saying !!!

Sharing is Caring

We have been brought up in a patriarchal society, teaching us that the household work is a female’s duty and going out and earning is the man’s. This belief is basically the reason women are ‘traditionally’ supposed to look after the household and shoulder the indoor responsibilities. Although, these days we can see a change in this kind of behaviour and belief system, it still has a long way from being eradicated, that’s for sure. The society has been molded according to this belief for a long time now, and it’s about time we realise how much harm it has done to us. Change is the need of the hour.

As a woman, I am very happy that we, in my household, believe in sharing all the responsibilities in our household, be it the small household chores, or the bigger financial responsibilities. If we are to actually #sharetheload, we should start by teaching the men and the boys to do the household chores. We could start with teaching them how to do the laundry. Doing the laundry is a comparatively easy household job as compared to the others, and Ariel makes it even easier.

Ariel’s new film about sons sharing the load really struck the right chord. Take a look

 “Are we really teaching our sons what we’ve been teaching our daughters?” I think that is a question every mother should ask herself. The fact is, we teach our daughters to be strong, independent women because it is the need of the hour, but we often forget to teach our sons how to be an equal partner and enable them to continue to pursue their aspirations. The drawback to this is that although the women are equipped to shoulder both these responsibilities, men aren’t taught or expected to shoulder any kind of responsibility when it comes to household chores. 

But as today’s women, we have the power to be the change makers of tomorrow. We can teach our sons exactly what we’ve been teaching our daughters. 

I think this initiative by Ariel is exactly what the society needs today. It focuses on an equal upbringing and forces us to think and bring about a change in our lives. We, as mothers are equipped to change the future of our society. Making our daughters and sons equally responsible for the household chores is the path towards a bright and equal future, in every sense of the word. And if some of you haven’t started already, start now, because it’s never too late to start. Ariel has taken the initiative by starting the #ShareTheLoad movement, now, it’s our job to spread the word and actually implement it. I am doing my part, are you doing yours?
