If you pine for nostalgia, you're in the right place AND the right era! Fashion has made a full blown Back to the Future moment with all the late 80's / early 90's vibes, and we are completely obsessed and here for it. "Where we are going, we don't need roads" - but we do need the right accessories and pieces to help us get there!
✨ Scrunchies, Banana Clips, and Bows - Oh MY! ✨
It's all about the hair. If you spent hours in the mirror with your favorite scrunchie piled on top of your head singing into your hairbrush Whitney Houston ballads, you're probably having a fashion full circle moment. Scrunchies are EVERYWHERE these days, and such a fun way to rock a top knot.
You might've read Banana Clip and cringed. Remember all those hours trying to clasp it together to hold your hair in one place? Honestly they were so hard to figure out, but they have truly come a long way! Now easier to snap in place, hold more hair, and so many more chic ways to wear your hair up.
We are HERE for a bow moment! Bows are the ultimate girly detail that should always be in fashion. We aren't talking Friday Night Lights cheerleader bows, but dainty, feminine, sweet bows with a half up half down style, or a sweet ribbon to tie your low pony all together. Also, bow detailing on shoes (HELLO SAM AND LIBBY!) and also on dresses, are the perfect touches to any ensemble. Embrace your feminine, playful, girly side!
✨ Puff-Sleeve-Princess ✨
Remember Ariel in the pink dress when she was in the castle after finding her legs but no voice? That was the moment we all knew we needed a puff sleeve in our lives, and we could not be more thrilled that it's come back into our closet and our lives! It seems to be a firm fixture in fashion, so if you're on the fence about reliving your childhood, it's all about our now-stalgia fit moments, so this is your sign that you definitely need some puff sleeved pieces!
✨ Mom Jeans: The Comeback Kid ✨
Flashback to the SNL skit of Mom Jeans! Little did everyone know that mom jeans would be the literal hottest denim trend of the decade! High waisted to slim the overall figure and accentuate the backside, with a bit of a baggy feel - these jeans can go from day to night in a flash! They might be mom jeans, but they aren't your MOMS jeans. Pair with a cute body suit and blazer for a total power move, or a cute band tee or chunky sweater for that relaxed, casual lewk. Iconic!
✨ Sky High Platforms ✨
Ready to truly elevate and levitate to new heights? Add a little pep in your step - literally - to your favorite classics! We have been seeing versions of Converse, Doc Martens, Vans, Tevas, sky's the limit - no pun intended - on where this new trend is going. Platforms are amazing to pair with Mom Jeans or Flared Denim - for that look that elongates the leg with our latest denim crazes. Also, so cute to pair with your favorite floral dresses, especially midi or maxi, for added elevation. Plus they're just so cute, they're giving us major Cheryl Blossom vibes from our favorite eras.
The best part about all the retropolis action: it's fun! It's playful! It's most importantly expressive to each person's individuality. Nostalgia lovers - it's time to shine! Get ready to ENJOY getting dressed every day with all our fashion full circleness!
