ALL IN THE DETAILS: Blast From the Past

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Blast From the Past

The Balenciaga F/W 16 collection showed how history can repeat itself in the best way. Feel like you need something new in your wardrobe? Try re-vamping your look with some old pieces that will have you saying, “I got it from my grandpa.”

In the fashion world of today, it can be hard to create a look that’s new and never been done before, so mix your old with your new! My favorite look spreading all over campus lately is the oversize denim trend—especially since I’m still paying for all those holiday treats from last year.

This Fashionista styled a modern little black dress with vintage pieces like this jean jacket. The great thing about basics like this dress is accessorizing. Let the jacket speak for itself with patches or embroidery, or place your pops of color somewhere unexpected like your socks. When looking for the perfect piece for your own closet, make sure you check your parents’ or grandparents’ clothes before breaking the bank on the genuine thing. You’ll find some really unique outfits that way! The old school flair of the denim with some simple, black booties take this outfit from a rocker vibe to a rockin’ daytime look.

The mock neck bodycon dress makes for the perfect day-to-night opportunity. It’s a simple piece with endless possibilities. To go from your brunch plans to your girl’s-night-out, simply switch out the denim for leather and some heels. Keep your vintage vibes going all night with some fishnets or an old motorcycle jacket.
