Retro Revival


It’s so interesting to me to see how different styles come in and out and then back in again. There’s a lot of retro styles coming back right now and for the most part, I’m all about it. Some styles are a little too much for me… I see high school kids nowadays that look like they just popped out of a Saved By The Bell set, but hey, we all wore funky stuff in our teens! I do however love some good ol’ Converse and it seems like everybody’s wearing them. I feel like there’s a broader age range if appropriateness when it’s comes to classic Chuck Taylors. Teenagers and adults alike can get away with it. My husband and I snagged both of these pairs from Famous Footwear (use code POOLSIDE for 15% off)!

Some other retro trends that I’m diggin:
  • Ascot Scarves: They are so feminine and so classy. I love the ways that they’re being styled right now.
  • High Waisted Jeans: I’m pretty much all about the high waisted jeans these days. I think that they’re way more comfortable and I also think they’re cuter. I can’t handle a low rise jean like I used to.
  • Baseball Hats: They’ve always been around, but they’re coming back full force now. It totally reminds me of my childhood.
  • Overalls: I LOVE OVERALLS. They are way more flattering now (thank goodness) and I just adore the edge that they can bring to an outfit.
Obviously I like a lot about what’s happening in fashion right now. It’s an interesting time because so much is being revived. We way¬†more options than we used to, which provides new opportunity for self expression. I hope that you’re enjoying my Summer Shoe Series, they’ll be more coming at you!
What retro styles do you love? I’d be thrilled to hear!
