How to Rock a Trend the 2nd Time Around: 90s Overalls and Chokers


So you know how “they” say if you were old enough to rock a trend the first time around, you should skip it when it comes back again? I’m not (or at least I’m no longer not) someone who subscribes to “age rules.” When I was a kid, they would tell women over the age of about 40 that they should cut their hair above their shoulders in the workplace. You see how that one went down, right? LOL. But there is a only a teeny bit of truth about the trend thing and age.

So of course I had to open #OutfitsInOctober with a host of Black fashion bloggers. I’m OBSESSED with style bloggers. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve bought something thanks to something a style blogger had on. But, and you don’t need me to tell you this, too often Black style bloggers aren’t represented as much as our counterparts. An excuse people sometimes use are “there aren’t that many Black style bloggers.” BULL. I was able to quickly rattle off this list based on who I follow on Instagram and this is only a fraction—there are way more Black fashion bloggers than this of course (and please leave a comment with your faves below).

Stay tuned for more #OutfitsInOctober—all this month long there’s going to be a fashion OVERLOAD on this blog and on my Youtube channel!
