Fashionista Musings: The Triumphant Return Of High Waist Jeans

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.

Fashionista Musings: Fake Front Pockets

Shopping for a good pair of jeans can be tough. There are a lot of factors to consider from the color and style to the cut and fit. No one jeans are ever alike, and sometimes it’ll take time before you find a pair that’s just right. If finding your one perfect pair isn’t difficult enough, there’s a new trend I’m loathing even more than going jeans shopping and that’s fake front pockets.

Summer Style: Pants To Beat The Summer Heat

When the weather starts heating up, everyone has their personal fashion preferences they like to wear to keep cool and stylish during those summer months. There’s a lot to choose from, like flirty dresses or shorts with just about any summer top that’ll go with it. But there’s some clothes you might not think would work well to beat the heat and that’s pants.

Taking Fashion To The Maxi: The Versatile Style Of Maxi Skirts

As someone who loves wearing a ton of feminine clothes with a lot of soft colors, lace trim, or flirty floral patterns, spring is the season these type of styles thrive best. Warmer days are drawing near and soon it’ll be time to throw back those closet doors and take those spring pieces out of hibernation. I like owning a little of everything, from the most current styles to the classic ones. Fashion being cyclical, there’s always at least one or two tops or bottoms that can easily be worn again. Long skirts, or maxi skirts, is another style that dominated much of ’90s fashion along with clogs and crop tops. Despite the resurgence of these long and flowy skirts, I seem to not be taking part in this trend again.

When Style Grows And Changes With You

People go through fashion phases periodically throughout their entire lives. Once you get past the age where parents can stop choosing what clothes you’ll wear, we do a little experimentation with styles and combinations. Teens may have a goth phase, a punk phase, a retro phase, or a preppy phase. Then when we become full fledged adults and enter the workforce, our fashion sense undergoes another transformation. It’s funny what kind of trip down memory lane you’ll go on when you’re cleaning out your drawers and closets one day with the intention of donating clothes you don’t wear anymore.

Fashion Rewind: Revisiting ’90s Fashion That Made A Comeback In The Last Few Years

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.

Wrap Me Up: Perfect Pairs To Turn A Summer Dress Into Wearable Fall Fashion

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.

Stripes Forever: A Classic Trend That Never Goes Out Of Style

Fashion goes through cycles. One minute a trend is hot and the next minute it’s not. No style is ever really retired. It just takes a few years before a trend is announced the rage again by trendsetters and fashion editors. Despite what the trend may be for the season, some trends are timeless and can be worn season after season, year after year. Stripes are one of those classic styles that never seems to get stale.

Modest And Sexy: Off The Shoulder Tops And Dresses

The older you get, the more you discover who you are and what your personal tastes are. This also translates into the type of clothes you like to wear. I naturally gravitate towards styles that are simple, feminine, and a bit dressed up. I’m a modest dresser who shies away from anything exposing too much of my body or skin to the public. A principle I have learned and adopted from my mom growing up is this, “Leave behind an air of mystery.” While some women are confidently showing off their hot bodies, I prefer to be covered in all the right places but showing a peak of skin when I want to feel a little sexy. The comeback of off the shoulder tops and dresses makes this spring and summer trend a huge personal style favorite for me.
