ILLUSTRATED PEOPLE LOVES TLC
Inspiring everyone from Kehlani to Nasir Mazhar, TLC are the first thing we think of when we think 90’s hip-hop girl bands. T-Boz, Left Eye (rest in peace) and Chilli were sassy, fearless and intelligent ladies churning out hits about everything important from Aids to body confidence. Besides, do you know ANYONE who doesn’t vibe to No Scrubs? Remaining forever fierce and independent the girls shunned red carpet convention again and again, turning up to events in dressed down sportswear. Their trademark is a trio of matching outfits each in different colours – something not everyone can get away with….. mentioning no names. Their love of silky sets and sporty shapes have inevitably inspired some of our key pieces for SS16 – the Octopus trousers and skirts. Here we sort through some of our favourite TLC looks, and if there’s one thing we can learn from the girls it’s that your designer knickers didn’t happen if they’re not on show.
In primary colours and layers of pants…
Super shiny metallic tracksuit bottoms with Dolce & Gabbana pants peeping out
Sexing up boiler suits…
Everyone’s favourite – the girls wore oversized and seriously silky pj sets for the Creep video.
One of the most iconic. Forever dreaming of these metallic track pants…
