Pull out your yearbook from kindergarten and I’m sure you’ll see these three things: your crush’s name circled with a heart, a picture of you at your desk (hands folded of course) and someone wearing a pair of overalls. ’90s fashion is arguably the most fun fashion decade we’ve seen, even if some trends caused some seriously embarrassing memories. The grungy feel mixed with playfully printed pieces and cool accessories was just too good to never come back, so alas — it’s back.
I spotted this Fashionista at a Crystal Castles concert bringing back the ’90s for a perfect weekend wear look. She started her outfit off with a mesh panel top, creating a dramatic foundation for her pinstriped overalls. Her overalls are clipped on one side, only for asymmetrical interest, and accessorized with a worn-in pair of combat boots. She finished her look with an amazing veiled beanie, a slouchy bag and an intertwining snake ring. All-in-all, her outfit combines comfort with the laid-back chicness we love on weekends.
Start your ’90s-inspired weekend outfit by finding a panel top like hers in a contrasting color. Mesh bodysuits are a no-hassle way of building an outfit. For a looser fit, find a paneled T-shirt and simply wear it with a short pair of overalls. Don’t be afraid to try patterned ones, and for chillier weekends, long overalls. The only thing you should keep in mind is to balance the outfit by either wearing a more fitted top with loose overalls or a loose top with more fitted overalls. Finally, accessorize with your favorite pair of boots, funky rings and a good old ’90s beanie hat.
One Simple Change: When you’re ready to take your look into the night, switch out your overalls for an asymmetrical skirt, tucking your shirt in if necessary. The mesh panels, billowy silhouette and dark colors are sure to turn heads and are pieces you can wear over and over again.
