We’re all familiar with the late ’90s when we’d see punks zooming around on their skateboards in their dark baggy clothing that never seemed to flatter anyone. I seem to remember a lot of chains. As I am noticing different forms of skateboarding coming back into the world, there have been a few fun fashion trends making their own come-back. This time, there is less of an emo vibe, but the style consists of a chill and relaxed feeling that tends to mirror the lifestyle.
We all remember skate shoes from our teenie bopper years as we explored Warped Tour fashions. This year, they’ve made a huge comeback (along with some weird middle school memories). I’ve seen them popping up in so many blogs this season. I love the way this Fashionista wears her leopard print skate shoes to add a festive pop against her essentially black and grey outfit. These Vans Classic Slip-Ons are some of my favorite skate shoes I’ve seen yet. They’re comfy enough to wear anywhere and everywhere, and they add a certain edginess to any outfit.
The accessory that really finishes this outfit off is that dramatic fringe scarf. Fringe has very quickly become my go-to statement this year. I’ve seen a few fringe scarf appearances on campus, but none with quite this much fringe. It provides a great contrast to the ensemble, while making it a bit more girly. This scarf from ASOS is probably the coolest of all time. I mean, it has tassels. What could be better than that? Pairing this scarf and the leopard skate shoes take this Fashionista’s outfit from simple and dark to funky and sassy.
For a few years now, I’ve been developing an obsession with rings. They complete an outfit so easily. I’m especially loving the look of layering multiple rings like this Fashionista. This turquoise set from Nordstrom would layer together so nicely. With this and the addition of your favorite snapback, you’ve got this Fashionista’s effortless look in the bag, and you’re ready to hop on your skateboard (or longboard) and explore the town in style! Get ready for a day full of adventure.
Spotted: In the rag & bone spring 2013 collection, we see so many chunky layers paired with our favorite skater shoes! Even though it’s men’s fashion, it can so easily be translated to women’s.
