The One Throwback Trend You Need In Your Summer '19 Wardrobe

Style

If you haven't noticed by now, 90s fashion is here to stay. Cycling shorts and slip dresses are wardrobe staples and this spring we have seen the introduction of the slip skirt. Once an undergarment, the bias cut satin slip skirt is now a summer staple to add to your closet.


What I love about satin slip skirts, is how they are suitable for every occasion. You can style satin slip skirts with heeled mule sandals for brunch, or with sliders for a chill holiday look. On a regular day out, I'd style it with a t-shirt or racer back vest with chunky white trainers, or to dress it up I'd wear a bodysuit or crop top with strappy mid-heel sandals.

I'm personally enjoying the move away from doing everyday bodycon skirts to this looser, laid back but still-hugging-in-the-right-places look. So far I have a tiger print and black satin slip skirt and will be purchasing a hot pink one next. Please note to accommodate my thickness, I go for satin slip skirts with at least 2% elastane because everything needs to breathe.

This summer we are doing grown and sexy, and giving them 90s Joan Clayton, Carrie Bradshaw and Naomi Campbell vibes. For further inspiration, check out some of my favorite slip skirt looks from IG:

Former Democratic congresswoman and gun advocate Gabrielle Giffords once said, "Pursue your passion and everything else will fall into place. This is not being romantic. This is the highest order of pragmatism." My favorite part of what she said is how going after your passion isn't a romantic notion; that it's not about being caught up in fanciful and unrealistic ideals of what we think living out our passion and purpose should look like.

It's no secret that the key to success lies in what we do on the weekends. You could spend it catching up on all things Shondaland or taking steps to get closer to your goal. Trust me, I'm all about balance, but it's how you spend your weekends that can determine when or if you'll accomplish the life that you want.

As life would have it, as I'm starting this piece, Kelis' music video for "Bossy" is playing on the tube. Something that I've always liked about Kelis, as an artist, is she's gonna do whatever she wants to do. We don't have to get it, so long as she does. If we like it, that's merely a bonus. Yeah, Kelis would be the opposite of the kinds of folks we're gonna talk about today. She appears to be very anti-self-critical. And that's beautiful.
