Straight Off the Streets

Well, Girlshop is closing so I'm going to have to come up with a new list of quality online shopping locales. But today was an unusually warm Spring day so phooey on the internet - let's take a trip outside and see what's in store for Summer fashion, shall we?

Of note:
  • Mini dress are everywhere
  • Flats, flats and more flats
  • The Spring jacket is the short sleeved, empire waisted, big-buttoned number
  • Skinny jeans (please only wear these if you have the appropriate rear end)
  • Biggie big sunglasses
Yawn! I'm no editor at Vogue but truth be told, I am bored. The only style that is catching my eye is being worn by the super-Urban. And yes people, it's reminiscent of the 80s Hip Hop styles so I am loving it something fierce. The look is this - for men and women:
  • Relatively slimming jeans, but not necessarily skinny
  • Classic hightop kicks
  • A crisp, well-fitted solid color Tshirt
  • A kaffiyeh scarf around the neck (check out this 1988 article from Time Magazine - is this article really that old? I guess so; seems the pub's archives are free)
  • If you're a man, a new baseball hat, brim off to the side
