Old trends never go out of style.
With each passing season we see old trends fade in and out of style, some eventually making their way back into our wardrobes and others that we probably wish never existed. However, certain styles are so great that they end up being timeless and are a staple in our wardrobes that can be worn during any season.
Black and white has always been a classic color combination that can be worn in so many different ways. Seen in every pattern from stripes to polka dots, and houndstooth to colorblocking, these two basic colors will always make a great pair no matter what the season or year. Pair a black and white shirt or dress with a bright statement necklace, colorful shoes or a standout purse for an added pop of color to contrast the simple but stunning outfit palette. Express, which is located in the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, N.j., has a huge variety of black and white shirts for a great price, including their popular striped Portofino shirt.
Old trends that have always been popular but are always changing with the seasons are prints. Whether it is polka dots, florals or graphics, prints are a trend that will always be popular. Feel free to mix and match different prints for a new spin on an old look, as well. One print that will be a huge hit this coming spring is florals, which can be worn on everything from shirts to cardigans to headbands. Charlotte Russe is another option for avid Montclair shoppers who want great choices, but still at low prices.
Old trends in the 1950’s, women began wearing belts to cinch their waistlines. Ever since then, women of all shapes and sizes have been using
this trick to accentuate their natural curves. A great look for the spring is a patterned or colorful dress paired with a thin and colorful belt to stand out. This look does great things for women’s bodies so don’t be afraid to highlight those feminine curves! A great place to find cute, affordable belts to pair with any outfit is Forever 21, which is also conveniently located in the Willowbrook Mall.
The one fashion trend that has stood the test of time and will forever be a staple in every woman’s closet is the little black dress. Every woman from Audrey Hepburn to Princess Diana and Jennifer Anniston to Miranda Kerr has been spotted in their own version of the LBD. The great thing about this trend is that you are able to put your own spin on it and incorporate your own personal style. Whether it be lace, leather, a sweetheart neckline, strapless, long sleeves or bedazzled, you are sure to find a style of this dress that you love!
