Keeping Throwback Style in Fashion
Let’s talk about Retro and Throwback Fashion!
When you think of ‘80’s style, what comes to mind? For me, I imagine bright, neon colors, leggings, big hair, and crazy makeup…and, of course, anything worn by Madonna. And for 90’s style…we all know this one: over-tweezed eyebrows, plaid skirts, dark lipstick + lipliner, and one of my favorites (as pictured) – the classic and iconic D.A.R.E. shirts.
Since the ‘90’s, D.A.R.E’s campaign branding has become a mainstay in retro fashion and a favorite between both niche and mainstream artists, fashionistas, and bloggers…including me!
Why I love this shirt so much: not only is it super comfy and trendy, but the organization that produces these shirts – aka MatchBack.org – even donates clothing to a teen-in-need with the purchase of every item from them. Yes, this shirt is stylish and a cult-favorite, but it’s also a wonderful way to give back!
Now…let’s talk about retro fashion – particularly, the ‘80’s and ‘90’s. Just because these times have passed, doesn’t mean we have to let their fashion fade away! Take a look below for some quick ideas on how to bring ‘80’s and ‘90’s fashion back into style.
Tell me: What do you think about retro and throwback fashion? Would you wear pieces that you once wore in the ‘80’s or ‘90’s, or keep them in the past instead of bringing them into the present day? Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading. Stay nostalgic!
