STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: All That And A Bag Of Chips

Let’s break out those windbreakers and fluffy scrunchies; the ’90s are back for a rerun. Boys and girls everywhere are reliving their childhoods through the fashion of the ’90s this year. Be it swing dresses or chokers, Fashionistas today are totally digging the clothes they grew up in. The main appeal of this trend is the grungy attire, which is centered less on looking put together and more on looking street-chic.

This Fashionista embodied the ’90s in an accessible way by combining modern pieces with thrift store finds. Let’s break it down. She used an oversized denim jacket to layer on top of a men’s patterned shirt in a funky psychedelic print. Its ’70s vibe meshes well with the graphic T-shirt underneath.

The accessories in this outfit really pull it together and solidify the vintage theme. Her pins on the breast pocket make for a unique detail that adds to the ’90s feel. Plastic black chokers have been back for sometime now, but with this outfit, a thin band around her neck really makes sense. The army backpack/purse combination works well for a school day or just walking around campus and exploring.

Pairing the twin high buns with the ear chain allows the jewelry to be highlighted while also letting the hair to be playful. Since today’s fashion is all about being yourself, this Fashionista incorporated her hipster style by wearing her crazy socks inside her velvet sneakers. The crazy array of colors is totally modern and unique while also paying homage to the decade of Full House and Nirvana.
