When particular style trends start dominating the fashion scene, sometimes there’s no choice other than to adapt to them and make them your own. ’90s fashion has been making a comeback in a huge way, and among the styles to return is the high waist jeans.
Fashion is cyclical. It changes and returns like the seasons. Maybe slightly different than we remember, but still largely familiar. The ’90s was an interesting time for fashion with oversized jean jackets, long and flowy floral dresses, and neon bright colors. If people thought the ’80s had weird fashion tastes in that decade, they also forget that the ’90s had its fair share back in the day. Being a pre-teen for much of the ’90s, I did have some styles I absolutely adored or would probably never want to wear ever again from that period of my life. Surprisingly, the last few years has become the time for ’90s styles to make a resurgence on the fashion scene.
That fall feeling is in the air. The temperature starts feeling cooler, days grow shorter, and pumpkin spice fever has permeated local coffee shops and bakeries. We store away the flip flops and tank tops for flats and cozy sweaters. We begin ushering in a new season and adapt accordingly to the changes. But for some, it may be hard to let go of those pretty sleeveless or backless summer dresses for something more fall appropriate. The ladies who love their bright and colorful summer dresses want a chance to wear them out a little longer. How do you do that without the cool breeze nipping at your bare shoulders? Pair that summer dress with a stylish sweater or jacket. Here are my personal favorite cover-ups every lady who loves their summer dresses should have in their closet to be fall ready in a snap.
The official start of the fall season is a few days away, September 22nd to be exact, but the big city I live in has already been getting a sneak preview of that autumn chill. Fall is one of my favorite seasons next to spring and I’m only too happy to stash away the summer clothes in favor of more season appropriate outfits. In preparation for the official arrival of the fall season, I’m going to list my go-to fall essentials I can never do without.
One of the best things about living in New York City is we have four seasons. We New Yorkers get to experience a change in temperature and the beauty (or misery) each season brings. When autumn comes around again, one of the things I’m most excited about, other than apple or pumpkin flavored things, is breaking out a good pair of boots. And in my case, I may love boots a little too much.
