If you wore the trend the first time around, can you wear it again?
Have you heard the rule going around that if you wore a trend the first time, you shouldn’t wear it when it comes back in style? Well, I’m tossing out that fashion rule, just like “horizontal stripes make you look fat” and “no white after Labor Day”. Let’s wear whatever we want!
I just couldn’t resist this neon pink Liverpool knit from Cali Fabrics! I’m an 80’s baby, so neon was popular when I was in Elementary school, just as I was starting to pay attention to what other kids wore. Neon is just so HAPPY!
Even though this fabric is currently sold out, Cali often has a range of neon Liverpool knits, like these coral, pink and yellow options, or if you like the idea of a plaid but want more subdued tones, there’s a great navy houndstooth right now! I love Liverpool for semi-fitted tank dresses like this, because as a double-knit it was enough body to skim and not cling.
When I first planned how to style this dress, I tried to tone it down with denim and navy marl sneakers… but really, that’s like trying to make a unicorn into a horse. Let the dress shine!
Did you notice that I used a bit of white Liverpool as contrast arm bands? I thought it would be fun to order some solid white and solid black to mix and match with my growing collection of Liverpool print scraps. You’ll see more of that in my next post!
What styles from your childhood or teens do you have a soft spot for? Would you wear them again?
