Style Advice of the Week

Many times fashion trends are cyclical. If something is “in” now, chances are it was “in” a decade ago or will be the next trend in years to come. It’s funny how we fashion folks always pretend like we are being so progressive and innovative. If one looked at the street style right now, it looks like we just stepped out of a Saved By The Bell episode. The ’90s are back, baby, and they’re apparently here to stay. The ’90s grunge trend has been around for quite some time now, and I still can’t get enough of it. It’s good to look to the past for inspiration for fashion.

This Fashionista shows off her ’90s style flawlessly. Her flannel is perfect for hot summer days and cooler evenings. When tied around the waist, the item adds a carefree cool vibe to the ensemble. Flannels can be found pretty much in every store these days. I suggest thrifting one though. There is no better feeling than searching for that perfect layering piece and then finally finding a vintage one.

She completes her ensemble with a striped tank top layered over a black top, black shorts with lace detailing, lots of chokers and necklaces and a pair of black leather booties. This outfit screams “’90s baby.” I am especially lusting over her array of neck candy. Sometimes it’s good to just throw on a few more accessories than you normally think you should. The different chains and charms make her ensemble interesting.
