Whether you have been denying it for months or embracing it every step of the way, the ’90s are back. And nothing makes me happier than my childhood coming back to life through trends. This summer Fashionista/os embraced platform sneakers, halter tops and jellies. Now that fall is upon us, platforms will keep going strong, flannels will flourish and Third Eye Blind will be popular again. Just kidding about that last part (maybe).
This Fashionista delves into the ’90s with two top buns, a vintage leather backpack and sweatshirt and a pair of platform sneakers. For cooler weather, you can never go wrong with the shorts and tights combination for a classic pairing. For the vintage sweatshirt look that this Fashionista is rocking, hit your local Goodwill to find great old sweatshirts from colleges, tourist stops and sports teams. Sweatshirts are great for a lazy day of classes, but trading out your college’s own for a vintage one will add something extra to your look. When it comes to accessorizing your look, snag a cute backpack like this Fashionista. Even designers like Alexander Wang have begun to make their own version of the leather bag. Top this look off with some Gwen Stefani buns for an unforgettable ’90s hairstyle.
For a good vintage sweatshirt, try this one from Bonanza and pair it with these The Laundry Room shorts from Shopbop and some black tights. To get platforms like this Fashionista’s, snag these JC Play by Jeffrey Campbell black platform sneakers at NASTY GAL. For the budget-conscious Fashionista, hit the local thrift stores for a great vintage backpack. The designer option for this backpack is this amazing Alexander Wang one.
If you have yet to try incorporating some old ’90s duds in to your wardrobe, this is the time. The ’90s have made their comeback and it doesn’t look like they are going anywhere any time soon.
