Fashion moves extremely fast these days. And the speed of movement is quite authoritative to boot. Last year, I would have flipped the switch on normcore if I just had enough slouchy track pants, and a pair of adidas in my size, but I digress. Before I knew it, the state of nonchalant dressing went right through the proverbial window. As I flipped through Spring issues of New York Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and other Spring fashion books, we are back in the wide leg 70’s, recreating the oh-so-hip 90’s, and hanging onto the wide shoulder pads of the 80’s. How can a fashion girl keep up? Hold onto your good stuff, it will return sooner than you know it.
Today, I am jumping on the 70’s bandwagon. I love the boho vibes of the generation with the all fringe benefits it delivers. The good thing though is that I don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to look like a million bucks or a Valentino girl, and I wouldn’t. Because I’ve got some of the original pieces right here in my closet. Or something that closely resembles the real deal.
Looking for spring inspiration? It’s going to be in the 50’s for the rest of the week. Tear out those gladiator sandals. They are back, but never left. And denim never fades. Take a look in your closet for some of those pieces and start pulling out your vintage finds.
I had a white vintage dress in my closet and now is the perfect time to dust it off and wear it again. I made my case to shop in my closet, because everything old, becomes new again.
