The 90s Revisited

As I’m sure you have noticed, the 90s are back in a big way!  Fashion recycles and borrows from previous decades paying homage to the past while looking forward by changing accents, modernizing silhouettes, altering hemlines, and updating fabrics.  All of which is done in an attempt to keep things fresh and fashion moving forward, however in a bizarre way fashion is just as much about its regression as it is about progression.  Everywhere I turn now all I see is 90s!  Cropped tops, acid wash, flannel, and ripped jeans dominate street style, which are all staples of the 90s fashion.  I must admit the 90s had its fair share of fashion disasters, but I am excited for the 90s do-ver.  What about you, do you think these trends deserve revisiting?

The Varsity Jacket

After a brief hiatus I am bringing back street style InstaGlam.  Today’s InstaGlam pic is courtesy of the fabulous Audrey Cotton, who I cornered and photographed at the Fundrise Investor party event.  Audrey is flawlessly rocking the varsity jacket.  The look is such a great success because she pairs the bulky classic piece with a sleek black maxi and cropped top (another one of my obsessions for spring).  This look is daring and fabulous!

*Semi-disclaimer: the reason I took a mini InstaGlam break is because the quality of the pictures can sometimes be questionable because they are taken with my phone and normally in a setting with less than ideal lighting.  So please forgive the shotty camera work, because this outfit was just too amazing to not share*

Black & White

Black and white is a timeless color combination.  Donning this classic duo, not only allows you to exude ease and class, but putting the look together is actually easy.  Color blocking is very on trend, but can be tricky and can quickly end in disaster if you don’t have an eye for color.  Black and white is the original color block and oozes sophistication.  And because this is such an effortless pairing it allows you to mix fabric textures more freely.

perfect for way to transition your wardrobe to cooler weather. i love the intricate cropped top paired with a classic black maxi.

my approach to fall is just throwing a jacket over lighter weight garments and Poppy Delevigne executes this flawlessly
