Get the Look: ’90s Fashion Inspired by My So-Called Life

95c0ae0702b4f7b29b299f94ec921096

There is a special place in our hearts for the too-short run of the series My So-Called Life. How many times did we wish we had friends like Rayanne and Rickie? How badly did we want the perfect bob haircut like Angela?

Perhaps the love comes from the way it perfectly captured the teenage experience, a time when we were waiting for our life to start and learning to accept the parts of ourselves that were different; all the while navigating the daunting social structure of high school. The show refreshingly displayed teenhood in all its angsty, awkward glory. That honesty not only made it inspiring but also groundbreaking. As we move closer to Fall, it is the perfect time to pay homage to our favorite Liberty High students by breaking out the ‘90s-inspired looks.

My So-Called Style: Angela

Angela not only had the best hair, she also had an awesomely relaxed and unique style. Overalls are not only comfortable, they also can be edgy and fashion-forward! Take a hint from Claire Danes and pair them with an awesome attitude and a crop tee, or glam them up with a silk blouse.

Plaid and flannel don’t have to be just stereotypical apparel of Generation X, they can also add that extra dose of color and pattern to an otherwise simple outfit. Tie it around your waist to show off your trendy style or wear it under your favorite oversized sweater for some perfect cold-weather layering.

Jumpsuits for Every Body Type

Whether it’s a casual lunch or a night out on the town, jumpsuits are everywhere this season. Think you can’t rock this trend? Think again. Jumpsuits can be challenging, but it’s all about choosing the right style for you. To find your perfect jumpsuit, keep these three factors in mind: cut, fabric and print.

Curvy

If you’re more on the curvy side, it’s best to avoid large prints and styles that are too baggy or overly form-fitting. Be on the lookout for solid colors and neutral prints and smooth fabrics and don’t forget to add a pair of heels for a slimming and elongated effect. You should also consider low necklines and modest embellishment, if any.

When it comes to styling, add a belt to perfectly enhance your waist. For a more flashy look, explore adding colorful or embellished statement necklaces to balance your body proportions and bring on the drama.

Petite

For petite figures, choose skinny straps or v-neck styles with a shorter cut, to show off the length of your legs. You’ll want to avoid longer, loose cuts as this can make the body appear smaller in size. Petite frames are best in small patterns and solid colors as this helps make the frame seem taller than it actually is.

Slim

For those of you on the slimmer side, explore in loose flowing and printed jumpsuits to add definition to your body and accentuate your curves. Denim jumpsuits and rompers have been a season favorite for slimmer figures. If you decide to go down the denim route, keep in mind that it’s all about a perfect fit. Try to steer clear from denim jumpsuits that hug or sit on your curves as you want to find one that are a bit looser but slim fitting.

By keeping these general rules and your curves in mind, your hunt to finding the perfect jumpsuit will be more fun and easygoing than challenging as you will see your jumpsuit collection grow. Ready to get started? Check out our Jumpsuits and Rompers Showroom!
