One of my favorite ways to mark a new season is with a shopping spree.
Not in the total wardrobe overhaul kind of way, just some simple updates to freshen up my¬†look.
This spring, I’m seeing a lot of styles that feel familiar — as in, I’ve worn these before!
(Signs of reaching a¬†certain age?)
But on the bright side, they’re trends I still like¬†so it could be fun to bring them back around once more.
5 Fashion Trends From Then That I’d Happily Try Again Now
Busted! My post from last summer went on about how I’d never revisit Birkenstocks. Well, I’ve softened¬†on this stance. Especially if they’re modernized¬†with a gorgeous floral print and sleek hardware¬†–like these so-out-of-my-price-range Givenchys. My next DIY project will be¬†customizing leather for my own variation.
I think it was in 7th grade when I wore my purple pants with the elasticized hem — a total 80s thing! Perhaps because it lends itself to a sweatpant / sporty chic styling that I still gravitate towards this trend.¬†They’re so¬†comfy! I also love the low-key factor these pants give off — the ultimate in effortless dressing.
Then there are the pointy toe flats¬†which remind me of¬†elementary school when it was all about MIAs. Currently, my go-to¬†ballet flats are these, but I’ve kind of got my eye on these for a shiny¬†shape up.
Though I never got to live in the 60s, I had plenty of opportunities to sport a¬†hippie dress in college. The small southern Cali school I attended was a prime spot to give all those hippie trends a try…style-wise, that is. I’d totally get back into one of these maxi numbers for summer. With¬†such a soft,¬†lightweight¬†feel¬†PLUS a¬†pretty pattern, why not give it a re-do? In college¬†I’d pair a hippie dress with Birks, but now I’d wear my tan, suede boots instead. I’d also probably tailor¬†a touch around the waist for a slightly more fitted silhouette.
I actually tried this exact pair on, but they were sooooo long, and I couldn’t figure out how to hem without losing all the bottom detail. So reluctantly, I had to pass. These would be perfect for a tall girl, or someone with long legs — which isn’t me, so I’m still on the search for my perfect pair of¬†summer flares.
Which trends are here now that you wore then and would try again?
