Floral Slip Dress


{dress: thrifted (shop similar styles below) // jacket: Levis c/o (old, but similar styles here and here) // sunglasses: Ray-Ban // mules: Zara (similar here/here/here/here) // choker: DIY (similar here and here) // belt: blowthebelt (also here + cheaper versions here and here) // bag: Rebecca Minkoff // rings: F21 (old) + Miranda Frye Jewelry c/o}

OK, let's play a game. How many 90's trends can you spot in this outfit post? The answer is 3 (the slip dress, choker and mules), but technically you can even include the denim jacket and aviators (but those are classic/timeless pieces). ;)
I don't know about y'all, but one of my fave 90's come-back trends is the slip dress. Not only is this style of dress comfortable and effortless, it's super versatile. Pair it with flats (even some trainers!) and a bomber jacket for day, and pair it with some sleek heels and some rad jewelry for night. I even love layering a plain white tee underneath for a more relaxed vibe. I found this slip dress on a recent thrift hunt and I immediately fell in love with the colors and print (big surprise, I know - haha). These colors will be just a great in the fall though, and this dress is perfect for layering into those chillier months. I'm eager to wear it over some leather leggings or a pair of black distressed skinny jeans. TIP: The key when shopping for a slip dress is to get a relaxed fit. Don't go for bodycon styles -- you want it to be loose and comfy. Also, I highly recommend opting for styles in satin or silk. They will keep you cooler in the heat of the summer.
Another 90's trend that I can't get enough of is the choker. I am collecting so many fun styles right now. This style I'm wearing today was an easy DIY. Just visit your local craft store and pick up some thin leather cord. Tie it around your neck and voila! This cord also comes in other fun colors too. ;)

I'm also really loving bomber jackets right now (another 90's trend), so I hope to do some style posts with one of those soon.

So what do you think of the 90's come-back trends? Are you a fan? Are there any 90's trends that you love that I haven't mentioned above? Do tell! Also, if you are a fan of slip dresses I would love to know how you like to style yours. ;)
