Fashion trends are cyclical, but I’m definitely happier to see some returning trends more than others. I love the 70s, which inspired the bell-sleeve top and hoop earrings that I’m wearing, and the 50s, for giving us cat eye sunglasses. It’s fun to take bits and pieces of these decades and style them together in a modern way that still feels relevant.
Madewell bell sleeve top (similar), Levi’s “Wedgie” straight jeans (under $100!), CÉLINE “Box” bag,
Moorea Seal cat eye sunglasses (similar here and here) & lace-up flats (sold out – similar here),
Madewell hoop earrings (shop more hoop earrings here), NYX “San Francisco” matte cream liquid lipstick
Juxtaposing old trends with the new makes up this modern retro look. I ended up wearing this outfit while in Los Angeles last month, and it was just casual yet cool enough for shopping on Melrose, eating Korean BBQ, and going to the Comedy Store (saw Bobby Lee, Arsenio Hall, Stephen Rannazzisi, Chris D’Elia, and Judd Apatow!) — all very quintessentially LA activities haha.
We’re heading to Austin, Texas for the first time this weekend! If you’ve been, please leave me some recommendations for eats/drinks/shops in the comments!
