Modern 90's

Long wool coat / Navy striped shirt from Gap / Floral dress from Sheinside / Tall boots from Le Chateau

90's nostalgia is a weird concept to me. I don't know about you, but I was a 90s kid. And as an 8 year old, I really didn't give a hoot about what was in style during that decade. It was just a few years ago, and still now, that I'm discovering shows from the 90's. And in the same way, I'm just starting to discover fashions that were popular in the 90s. I'm not re-discovering them, nor do they make me feel nostalgic. Instead of going full 90's today, I grabbed one item from the past and mixed it with a more modern look. Complete with boxy shoulder pads, this jacket has been hanging around at home for a while. I thought that it looked drab and unfitted (like a lot of items from the 90s), but paired with a straight dress and a belted t-shirt, it adds a more fitted silhouette to the look. So I guess if we're pulling out a fashion dictionary, this would fall under "90s-inspired". But to me, I call it "too cheap to buy a new coat so I found an old one that I wouldn't normally wear and made it prettier".

  2. Ah I'm so old. 90's was junior high / half of high school for me. So the nostalgia is there a little more for me I guess. But I do love a good 90's inspired look now, and I enjoy the mix here.

  4. I know you said you normally wouldn't wear that coat--but I actually love it! I think it was genius how you paired it with floral. It's a very unexpected and smart combination!

    Have a great week!

  8. Sometimes I really miss those "old days", the tv shows, the fashion and even the freaky music! :D
    Anyways, you again look so cool and stylish! At first I thought that the floral print was skirt, so I was surprised to read that it was a dress- such a smart way of layering!

  11. You did made it prettier! :D I love the skirt and t-shirt combo, the lace on the skirt is quite sexyyy! Sometimes when I don't like the bulky shoulders I remove the shoulder-pads and roll up the sleeves, turns out somewhat cool :D

  14. I was too and I remember all too well the fashions. I cringe when I look back or think about it since for me it was never stylish LOL

  31. I love that dress/skirt thing your'e wearing, it's super gorgeous and goes so well with the coat. Supposedly the reason why shoulder pads were so popular back then was because it creates the illusion of a smaller waist, haha. I still think shoulder pads are cool sometimes!
