Style Advice of the Week

As the summer vacations come to an end, the streets of Philadelphia are filled with Fashionistas sporting different back to school trends. While seasons come and go new fashion trends emerge, but a good way to keep your wardrobe stylish is by stacking it up with retro pieces. These vintage clothes will come in handy when other modern trends fade away through the seasons.

Retro pieces can make for an easy vamp to an outfit during the back to school rush. In this outfit, our Fashionista maintains her cool kid charm by pairing up a plain tank top and leggings with a classic boater hat and a vintage light blue graphic blazer.

I love that she trades in the everyday fedora hats we see on our back to school trends for a much more classic alternative, the boater hat. The boater hat keeps it retro while giving the look an effortless feel.

To add to this well-done yet effortless outfit, our Fashionista paired her casual getup with a graphic bird design blazer. This blazer keeps her outfit girly and colorful as her rocker-chic auburn hair falls nicely down her shoulders. To pair everything up nicely, her shoes make for the perfect grunge statement.

Achieving this trend can be very easy and affordable. To accomplish the grunge-chic look, take some points from our Fashionista. Pair a simple getup with some retro pieces.  An affordable bowler hat will work wonders on an outfit by making it look a little preppy, and you can always choose to be less girly by wearing a set of creepers or ankle boots.
