Everybody loves a good throwback every now and then. When a Sean Kingston summer jam blesses us on the radio or an old Tommy Hilfiger scrunchie is rediscovered, we cannot help but feel nostalgic. Unfortunately, if a millennial would throw back an article of clothing we’d be dealing with gauchos and Paul Frank graphic T-shirts, and I think we can all agree those should stay in the past. Luckily, we can pull from other eras chock-full of iconic fashion moments.
I started this look with a statement Kelly style purse and the earliest era featured: the 1950s. I uncovered this vintage gem in an antique store, however with the 2017 embellishment trend, this type of detailing can be seen in any local department store. Next, I mix and matched ’70s inspired pieces with modern garments. On top I combined a modern bomber jacket with this linen, mandarin collared blouse. With the business in the front and party in the back, this top becomes classic with a twist, again playing on contemporary stitch detailing. Waist down, I selected my go-to pair of distressed denims and a pair of throwback block wedges. To accessorize, I sported a few of my favorite rings, some Lenon-esque mirrored shades, and a pair of statement tassel earrings.
Putting together an eclectic look such as this can be fun and easy, whether you’re rummaging at resale shops or picking up resurfaced trend for cheap at Forever21. They say what goes around comes around, and the fashion industry can certainly attest to that.
Be careful what you throw away, because you never know what might cycle back around!
