Finding Trends in Your Own Closet

Trends are constantly changing and coming and going in the fashion industry. Sometimes it is hard to keep up; especially with the amount of money you could spend trying to buy items that fit into the latest trend. People always think they need to go out and buy what is in the store today, but you never think about looking in your closet to see what you have that could easily fit into a trend.

One of the biggest trends seen this year was bringing back the nineties style. This style included lots of denim, floral, plaid, and a grunge look to clothes with ripped jeans and band t-shirts. Whether you are a teenager or a mother, there are pieces for everyone that can help you fit into the current trends in the fashion world. Plaid is such a versatile look. It is so easy to dress up or just throw on casually. Everyone should invest in at least one plaid shirt because it always comes back. I always love a plaid shirt with ripped jeans. It might sound simple, but the look is such an easy way to get that nineties trend effect. If you’re feeling extra trendy, you can add a graphic t-shirt. Pairing this outfit with a simple tennis shoe is perfect for running errands or a day out, but then can easily look great with a solid color pair of booties or heels to dress it up. Women might think ripped jeans are too young for them or that they can’t pull them off, which is completely wrong. Ripped jeans do not need to be excessive to look fashionable. Actually, jeans with just a small slit rip on the knee are the go-to jean for many celebrities and stylists. Sometimes simple is better.

Floral, floral, and more floral. Floral was such a popular pattern in the nineties and now is coming back. Even if you aren’t a floral lover, wearing neutral tones such as army green, maroon, tan, brown, and black would help you fit right into today’s nineties trend. Some people do not like patterns or do not like to wear too much of it. I recommend adding one piece with a floral pattern to make sure it is not overwhelming. A floral dress or maxi skirt is a perfect way to show off your nineties style while adding a simple long necklace and a solid colored top. If you’re looking for something simpler, a flowered pattern top with ripped jeans or denim short would be a great way to add in a nineties feel.

One last look that most people do not think of is a silk or slip-looking dress. Believe it or not, I am sure most women have a slip in their closet right now, but would never think about wearing it in public. Well, here is your chance. I am sure women will be hesitant about it, but adding the right things can make you feel more comfortable.  Since most slip straps are very thin, I would add an oversize denim jacket over it to add some coverage as well as a casual, trendy vibe. If your slip is too short, you could add a black belt with a bigger clasp and some dark or black ripped jeans to finish off the look.

Lastly, accessories. Keep it simple. Long necklaces always add that extra spice needed for an outfit, but do not add too much. A simple, long necklace with a charm would be perfect for any outfit and can be used with almost every outfit you put together. To keep your nineties looks modern; add a strappy heel or wedge and even a cross body purse to finish off your looks.

Nineties style is so fun and can be used in so many different ways. Do not be afraid to take chances and try something new that is what fashion is all about! Check out our pictures from our store and some ideas we found online to help you with your nineties style!
