Dress: Forever21. Shoes: Birkenstocks. Scarf: my mom’s closet.
Two of the biggest trends that have been slowly gaining momentum are the throwbacks from the 70s and 90s. I personally am a big fan of many of the 90s inspired pieces so I thought today that I would feature my new dress and do a 90s style post.
One of my absolute favorite trends right now is the slip dress. It’s great because it’s so versatile. I saw the dress that I’m wearing while shopping with my mom and I knew I had to have it. I really like the nude color, but it also comes in black or gray. The great part about this dress is that it can be worn during the day (like I’m featuring), or it can easily transition to be worn at night; just throw on some chunky heels and a leather jacket! But seriously, slip dresses are great day or night. I just bought another from Topshop that I’ll be featuring soon but it’s currently at Nordstrom being tailored (#shortgirlprobs).
To keep up with the 90s theme I added my Birkenstocks. I LOVE that these shoes are making a comeback. So many people hate on them, but I think they are the comfiest shoes I own (you can tell by how beaten up they look). 50% of people love them and the other 50% think they’re hideous. I think they’re kind of like pugs: so ugly they end up being cute!
Topping off my 90s throwback outfit, I borrowed a bandana/neck scarf from my mom’s closet. As you may know, I featured bandanas in a recent post, and I’m glad to be finally showing it in person. I really like this option because the colors in the floral print tied together with my dress. I mentioned before that I’m not the biggest fan of the classic paisley bandana print, so the flowers were a nice alternative.
Although this look is a mix of a few different 90s inspired pieces, I love that they can all be worn separately. My outfit is definitely a statement maker, but these pieces individually can be easily toned down.
