Well, girls, you can officially bust out your chokers, bomber jackets, flannels, mules, and knee socks because the 90s are back! Flowery skirts with knee highs and oxfords? Absolutely? Channeling Cher from Clueless? Grab a cropped top from American Apparel and a choker from Claire’s—it all works again. Some of the key items your wardrobe may be missing are:
A Bomber Jacket
Like all fashion, these come and go! You should definitely invest in one and hang on to it! We love them in army green, black, with and without zipper embellishments, or even with floral embroidery. We love to edge out a floral look like in the picture, or play a little peekaboo with a cropped top and oversized jacket. It looks as well with jeans as it does with pumps for a night out! We love the inexpensive, on trend options at Express!
The Paper Bag Waist Pant
Yep, high waisted pants with cropped tops are all the rage this season. We love the flattering look of it, meaning you can pull it off even if you’re not a size 2. Do a casual pant for home or a dressier version for work. Looks great with a silk (ish) button down tucked in for work or your favorite mini sweatshirt for home. Remember–we are going small again. No more tunics and oversized sweaters! Check out the Limited for some chic, affordable options.
The Bell Sleeve Sweater
We saw these come in during the mid 2000s and they are back. It’s another classic style that is so wearable. It adds a touch of sophistication to what would otherwise a relatively simple ensemble. It’s a great look with jeans if you need to dress up your look, and a likewise, perfect for work when a sweater just feels too casual. We especially love it as an update on the sweater dress.
The Updated Bootie
The bootie has been your closet staple for the last several years, in various lengths. This year, you can hang on to your tried and true pair….OR you can soup them up a bit. Embellished booties are what’s happening now. Wear them to showcase the heels and details with dresses, skirts, and skinny pants.
