3 Throwback Trends You Need To Try This Week

Share

We can guarantee one of the most common thoughts that races through every woman’s mind is—what the heck do I wear? More often than not, we find ourselves blankly staring at our closets trying to compile an outfit (that doesn’t just involve jeans and a tee) we’ll be excited to don. Because we know the struggle all too well, we’re lending inspiration via weekly ideas on stylish ensembles to help step up your sartorial game.

This week we’re looking at trends that have been making a major and unexpected comeback. First, the cardigan. No longer a frumpy afterthought, new renditions of the layering piece are sleek and look fantastic with a turtleneck and of-the-moment accessories. Second, the vintage top with ’70s-inspired detailing like a ringer collar and colorful panels, begging to be worn with denim and a blazer for polish. Lastly, the ballet flat in true pale pink designs identical to the dancer shoe, delicately chic when paired with luxe separates. Ahead, see how we’re styling these throwbacks like a modern fashion girl.
