I came across this picture, and while I’m not entirely sure when it originated, I am absolutely positive that I kind of love it now. (Glowing review, I know!) But seriously; looks that combine vintage or super-casual flare with nouveau edge are some of my current favorites. Maybe you’re not ready to flaunt your heather gray sweats in public with a modern shootie, but there are definitely other ways to refine ‘relaxed’ style into ‘clean-cut chic’. The contrast is what makes it work! Liquid leggings and a blousy sweatshirt; yes! A corset top with high-wasted, flared denim; yes! A mini skirt with an over sized blazer; done! As we move fashion forward, don’t be afraid to incorporate blasts from the past. After all, an educated homage is oh-so-modern!
