Fashion has always been cyclical, but doesn’t it seem like lately the cycles are speeding up a bit? For example, the 1990′s were only about 20 years ago. I have a hard time unearthing trends that pertain to a decade in white I was in gradeschool.
Sometimes though, I can be swayed by the right spin on a too-soon-to-be-revisited trend. A modern piece or updated twist on something from the Saved By The Bell days can make even a southwestern-inspired striped button down shirt and denim vest feel more current than costume.
I can’t put my finger on what exactly makes the above look work for me, but I think it has something to do with her sassy little shorts and awesome hair. The denim vest is one of those almost inescapably ’90s pieces, but you can definitely counter those connotations with the right pairings.
