I bet right about now you are wishing you had saved all those chokers and other accessories from the 90’s that are making a big comeback. I can remember my mom telling me, “You might want to keep that, it will come back in to style one of these days,” as I was filling a bag to take to Goodwill. She was right and now I am finding myself buying the same choker I wore in 7th grade. If you are like me and didn’t hold on quite long enough to see the 90’s trend come full circle, not to worry. Below is everything you need to know about 90’s pre-fall fashion and where to find it.
“Life Comes Full Circle,” said Tracey, Gold. Well it just so happens, so does fashion.
The Leather Biker Jacket
Different from the traditional leather jacket, the Leather Biker Jacket is cropped and has a more edgy look. I love a Biker Jacket for pre-fall to pair with dresses, jeans and boots, etc. I found this ‘(minus the) leather moto jacket’ from Express for $98.00. I chose this one because I like the belt detail on the jacket and finding a quality faux leather jacket under $100 will be hard once it starts to cool down and everyone is shopping pre-fall.
Who doesn’t like a good contour and highlight job? Apparently girls from the 90’s thought the same thing. As you can see in this photo, Britney was all about that highlight. If you find the right product, highlighting can give you a subtle glowing hue to make you look young and vibrant. Stay away from highlighters that have actual glitter in them and go with something more fine. My favorite highlighter is Josie Maran ‘Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Veil’ from Sephora pictured below.
Yes, you heard that right. Jelly sandals are back and redesigned by the queen of sandals herself, Tory Burch. More modern and without all that glitter, the Tory Burch Jelly Thong Sandals from Nordstrom are the perfect twist on a 90’s fav and at a great price point, $95.00.
The choker has come a long way from what we saw in the 90’s. For pre-fall we will be seeing a lot of wrap chokers with the lariat or bollo design. The fun thing about chokers is that they can add so much to an outfit and you can get them for reasonable prices.
When Topshop is selling scrunchies, you know it’s real. This 90’s trend is just making its comeback, so you may not see them around much yet. This is the perfect chance for you to jump ahead and get the trend before it’s “trendy.”
So my friends, there you have all the pre-fall accessories that will take your wardrobe from drab to fab. xx
