The Flashback Fashion Trend

A curious thing happened the other day–we walked past a store window and could’ve sworn the mannequin stole a look directly off of a character in the beloved 90s sitcom Friends. Dressed in a plaid shirtdress and combat boots, the window display provided a blast from the past. Plaid may seem like a trend reserved for the chillier seasons, but this year it decided to make an early comeback, and we’re welcoming it with open arms. So let us attempt a bold 90s redo, shall we?

Begin this outfit with a plaid shirtdress. What is wonderful about such a dress is that it can easily be worn year round: left as-is in the summer, then paired with tights or a leather jacket in the cooler months.

Rubbish Plaid Shirtdress, $33.90

Continue this look with rugged combat boots, a 90s staple that gives serious edge to the outfit.

ZIGIgirl ‘Tactical’ Boot, $99.90

This hip outfit is perfect for trying out the latest funky trend in eyewear: round glasses. These sunglasses are stylish, fun, and avoid making you look like Harry Potter (not that looking like Mr. Potter is necessarily a bad look).

Leonard Round Glasses, Tortoise, $165

Add an extra dash of rock ‘n’ roll to this outfit with a fabulous studded clutch, complete with a handle cleverly made to look like cocktail rings.

‘Finger’ Studded Clutch, $48

That’s all you need to boldly go back to the 90s!

As always, hope we inspired you to create an outfit that is a stylish blast from the past. And if someone asks where you got it from, make sure you mention your favorite online fashion magazine!
