I’m a child of the 90s and will always hold dear to my heart the cult classic Clueless. Cher had a way with plaid. She could do no wrong: knee highs, fluffy pens and all. Which is why I was so excited when Boohoo approached me to style a 90s inspired outfit to celebrate their new line with Charli XCX – her first clothing line! Without a doubt in my mind, I knew the first piece of my look had to be plaid. But to really cement the look in the 90s, I reached for accessories – and funnily enough, like fashion does, this accessory is making a comeback – a backpack.
I wanted to take it one step further and include a hint of another one of my favorite 90s trends: grunge. What’s better than mixing plaid and a little bit of leather?
The dress is an easy, relaxed fit and would be perfect layered with a collared blouse or turtleneck underneath. I’m wearing a UK size 8 – can you believe it’s only $26?! I was also pleasantly surprised with the quality of the faux leather on the backpack. It’s currently on sale – and if you’ve been considering going in on this trend, a quality, affordable find is a great way to test drive it!
What do you think of the backpack trend anyways? Is it making a comeback or should we keep it in the 90s? -xo
