7FAM: Shadow Stunner

"Josefina w/ Destroy & Shadow Pockets" in Black Shadow 2

OMG...we're ECSTATIC over 7FAM's "Josefina w/ Destroy & Shadow Pockets"!!! Received in Black Shadow 2, these skinny boyfriend jeans are roomy through the hip and thigh, and gradually taper down the leg for a flattering, feminine silhouette. With heavy distressing at the knees, they give off an edgy, rock 'n roll vibe that juxtaposes beautifully with a lacy blouse and pointed-toe pumps.

7FAM: Tattered & Torn

"Ankle Skinny w/ Released Hem & Destroy" in Windsor Pink Tint

Seriously, we could NOT be any more excited over 7FAM'S "Ankle Skinny w/ Released Hem & Destroy" in Windsor Pink Tint!!! Vintage in feel, these second-skin skinnies feature a mid-rise silhouette, heavy whiskering and tearing throughout, and a very of the moment release hem with fray detailing. Ridiculously comfortable, we're loving these skinnies paired with anything and everything; we're favouring chunky knits and combat boots for day, and silky blouses and pointed-toe pumps for evening. Definitely a MUST-HAVE.


Style Highlight: '90s Revival

Everything old, is new again. Haven't we all heard that before?!! Nowhere is that adage truer then when talking about the fashion industry. Trends that were once thought of as old and passe, have been given new life, and are now, once again, seen as "cool". Once such trend experiencing a HUGE revival at the moment is the '90s...again, chokers, slip dresses, and Doc Marten-inspired combat boots are now back on the MUST-HAVE lists of enviable fashionistas.

Minimal? Grunge? Sexy school girl? Which for you, most accurately sums up the look of the '90s??? Truth be told, they ALL do. Whether on its own, or in combination with each other, each of these style "trends" played an integral and important role in defining what was the standard aesthetic 25+ years ago. Perhaps, the single most popular item derived from this look now, and all those years ago, is the SLIP DRESS. Simple and clean, this beauty can be worn in numerous ways making it an incredibly versatile piece. To show how to interpret this "old" look in a new, and modern way, we've shown Free People's "Yasmine Slip" in Dark Purple layered over Velvet's "Rayon Challis Top", a semi-sheer, lightweight turtleneck in Black (above). While a true throwback would've been to pair this look with combat boots, we've chosen instead, Kendall & Kylie's suede "Ayla2 OTK Boots" in Black for a sleeker, more refined take.

Upping the ante, we've decided to layer the slip dress for a slightly grungier, sexier spin. Loving the look of multiple layers and textures, the above photo shows the use of both to provide depth and interest. Joie's "Devitri Blouse" in Caviar with its feminine, floral print and FLL Knitz's "Wythe Cardigan" in Rose with its open, lattice work detailing juxtaposes nicely with the richness of Free People's "Yasmine Slip" in Grey. As an added nod to the '90s, we've topped off the ensemble with Cuchara's "Elizabeth Wrap" choker in Gold.

Each of the items profiled, in and of themselves, are great pieces and arguably "essential" for a well rounded wardrobe; however, when paired together in the right combination, can not only inspire but pay homage to the trends that have come before it. Isn't that what fashion is all about anyway?!!
