Because I was born in 2001, I missed out on the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. This disadvantage has left me stuck trying to figure out what to wear in this new millennium! Designers pull inspiration and designs from previous decades, and the 1970s are a perfect example of that. The teen icons that were around in the ‘70s would have loved the wild fringe trend found in local boutiques today. Fringe detail down the arms of a black dress is fabulous on its own, or can be taken to a whole new level by accessorizing for the perfectly updated ‘70s look. The 1980s had many fashion forward women that are still inspiring our fashion choices today. I used some hard-to-forget ‘80s rockers as my guide. My updated look includes a chic black dress simply paired with peek-through pumps. A rock-ready necklace and pink clutch for a pop of color are the right additions to the chic and comfy look. An edgy leather jacket and boyfriend jeans are the perfect pieces to complete the grunge look of the ‘90s. The rest of my “bad biker girl” vibe is achieved through chunky accessories, biker booties, and ‘90s inspired sunnies. I may not be dancing to “Shake Señora,” but I will “Shake it Off” in this fly number!

“You will find yourself addicted to loving these chic throwback looks!” Throwback your space and find vintage inspired pieces, or redesign, re-upholster, and reimagine furniture and accessories for your home at RE-For Your Home.
