STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bringing Back The '90s

Trends come and go constantly, and I know I am not the only one guilty of raiding my mom’s old box of previously worn skirts, T-shirts and just about everything in-between in the back of the closet. There is just something about vintage clothing that draws us in, may it be the history behind certain pieces that gravitate us toward reinventing the piece for our personal style. This Fashionista is an experienced thrift store shopper and rocks the look she created above involving pieces with character, while allowing her unique touches to show through.

Denim skirts have been around since the ’70s. Altered with the trends of each generation, we currently see the jean skirt as a mini. The current trend closely relates back to the ’90s. And as fashion history repeats itself, add your own twist to this forever iconic piece of clothing. There are endless ways to revamp any item in your wardrobe. The key is to accessorize and add your own touches.

This Fashionista made the featured look her own through little details. Her glasses—find a pair like them at Anthropologie—add a special aspect to the look. The classic style frames add a touch more of the vintage elements in the look and tie them together perfectly. The adorable turtleneck sweater worn is key during the chilly winter months we face here at Kent State University. My favorite personal touch added to the look would have to be the braids. She works the long braids magically in her modern vintage look. It is always important to feel confident in the look you choose, and your hairstyle can contribute to the fun created.
