NINETIES BABY | 3 Throwback Summer Trends We're Totally Feeling

via Tendances de Mode

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

I won't tell you how old I am but let's just say that I remember the '90s. I remember them well. And I recall that for me, my sister's closet played a starring role. She was four years older, and I was old enough to know better - but that didn't stop me from devising 007-worthy tactics to raid her closet. She had the BEST wardrobe. I'm talking denim distressed in all the right places, perfectly worn leather belts, baggy boyfriend shirts & super soft tees, oversized blazers & body-hugging bodysuits that I had absolutely no chance of filling out (sadly). She had a job and I didn't, so she bought her own clothes while I had to make do with very uncool hand-me-downs. That first time I wore one of her jackets to school, let's just say that she wasn't super stoked to find it lying crumpled up on my bedroom floor. And the time after, once she'd put a sister-proof lock on her bedroom door which I figured out how to bypass with a bobbypin, she was even less stoked.

My obsession with my sister's '90s closet taught me two important lessons: 1) Never, ever touch your older sister's stuff. Definitely not worth it. I should know. and 2) If the opportunity ever presents itself to score an epic '90s wardrobe once you can actually afford to buy your own things, take it.

Luckily, some of my fave obsessions from the '90s are back and I can't wait to live in them this summer. Slinky slipdresses can go from sexy for date nights to playful by adding a little white tee underneath.  Sleek bodysuits are amazing for taking the frump-factor out of this season's high-waisted pants & shorts. And long blazers (either floral kimono-style or boss-babe businessy), look great with jogger-style pants (as shown below) or with distressed pale denim shorts (see above).

WHAT'S GOOD | Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

When Carine Roitfeld tells you what to wear, you listen. The former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and world-renowned style-setter has perfected 'I Don't Give AF' with her just-rolled-out-of-my-boudoir hair, her I-didn't-bother-taking-my-makeup-off-last-night smoky eyes and a parade of neutral street style looks that makes women half her age constantly question their own coolness.  

Roitfeld was inspired by her own wardrobe (naturellement) to create her latest collection for Uniqlo. On-trend fur bombers, as well as updated classics, like tweed blazers, wool and shearling coats, textured pencil skirts and merino sweaters mash up in a capsule that would make a killer wardrobe for any wannabe Parisienne. And if you don't like it, you guessed it: she does not give AF. 

The collection hits Uniqlo stores today.

When it comes to fashion, there's no season more exciting than fall. While the cooler weather and return to routine can be tough little pills to swallow, the promise of a new wardrobe makes it all totally bearable. Scoff. A new wardrobe you say? Um girl, I can't afford a whole new wardrobe you say? Keep reading. Updating your wardrobe for the new season is a lot less spendy than you might imagine. If you're armed with the basics (and if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you've got those covered), all you need to do is add a few key new-season updates into the mix. 

This fall, I've fallen hard for 5 pretty updates that I plan on wearing starting, um, now...

THE SHORT LIST | 3 Ways to Slay In Shorts This Summer

via H&M

Originally posted in The CLOSET

In the hot, hot heat, I'm always on the hunt for ways to keep cool. And while I won't deny the power of a perfect little dress to wile away a heatwave, I feel like right now is the perfect time to revisit an often-underappreciated basic: the short. Sure, simple shorts & a tee are fine when you're just chilling on your back deck. But there's a plethora of potential locked up in your shorties just waiting to get out. Like a backup singer who finally gets her chance to headline, think of your shorts as an untapped talent in need of a really good manager. 

This summer, make your white cut-offs street style stars by pairing them up with perfect partners. Try an all-white base, then throw a long flowy vest over top. Or pair your white shorts with an on-point top (try a black lace-up bodysuit, tank or tee depending on your comfort level), on-fleek feet (block heels or ghillie ties - yes, please) plus a black bandana and statement shades to help cement your cool girl status.

Not so down with high hemlines? You can still rock shorts by going with the flow. A pair of flowy shorts teamed with a crisp white off-the-shoulder top look effortlessly chic on a steamy summer day. 

Speaking of short, time to get back to our way-too-short summer. Hope these next weeks feel extra loooong. Scroll down for summer short outfit inspo - enjoy!
