Everything Old Is New Again
Fashion is circular meaning that what was once in fashion a couple of decades ago is bound to come around again. So wouldn’t your mom or grandma’s clothes back in style eventually?
This outfit was inspired by this thrifted Peter Pan collar blouse I picked up recently. At first glance, the style is a little matronly. Like something an older person would wear. But it has a certain timeless quality to it.
The pastel is very on trend for Spring, as is the floral. And the collar makes quite a statement and would look just as great layered under a pinafore dress as it does with these modern striped shorts.
Stealing Your Grandma’s Style
If you want to snag a similar look, browse through the closet of an older family member or rescue some vintage garments from a thrift store. The real trick to updating older pieces is to balance them with contemporary styles. One great way to do that is with denim – a light jacket or your favorite jeans will do.
Another way to toughen up the item is with a (faux) leather moto jacket. Nothing says cool like a retro dress and a black biker jacket!
