Simple Blue Stripes

Simple Blue Stripes

Maybe it’s just the bell sleeves, but this top gives me major vintage vibes. Just pair it with some flare jeans and it’ll look like you stepped out from a different decade! I love that we’re constantly recycling styles from the fashonistas before us. This past fall I remember being so confused walking through the clothing section at Target because it felt like I was in the 90s! All the clothes looked like something you’d wear to a Nirvana concert.

I’m always fascinated by trends; we get embarrassed by things such as what we wore, how we applied our makeup, styled our hair, etc. even though at the time those were the trends. And somehow, they always make their way back in some way or another.

While the decades never completely return in their full glories, I do think it’s interesting that we’re constantly borrowing from them. It’s fun to see certain things make huge comebacks, especially when you know you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing it just five years ago (i.e. I never thought I would own a pair of ‘mom jeans’ in my entire life… But I do own some…).

As for this top, I picked it up from American Eagle a little over a month ago so unfortunately I can’t find it on the site, but I can’t express how much I’ve been loving their clothes selection lately. They have a lot of vintage-looking stuff, and I wish I could afford to fill my closet with it all!

Any trends from the past you’ve been loving lately? Let me know in the comments!
