What goes around, comes around! We’re pairing up with JCPenney to show you the latest fall girls trends with a retro twist for back to school season!
When I was growing up, I prided myself on staying up on the latest fashion trends in my teen magazines.
So when I saw a lot of my favorite childhood looks at JCPenney this year during our back to school shopping trip, I totally got all the feels!
5 Retro Fall Girls Trends That Never Go Out of Style
You might recognize these hot “new” looks from your own closet back as a tween or teen. Enjoy this trip down memory lane, and proving to your kids that you’re way cooler than they even knew!
Here’s what we’re loving this back to school season:
90’s Style Leggings
When I was a girl, I lived in patterned leggings. The brighter the better! What I once looked back on as goofy 90’s fashion choices now proves that I was actually a total trendsetter! Mom wore it first!
Look for: fitted cotton leggings in bright colors and patterns
Pair with: solid color t-shirts or oversized sweatshirts (another classic 90’s trend)
Who else had a closet full of fluttery tops with florals, lace, and ruffled sleeves??
Look for: comfortable tops with feminine details like lace and floral patterns
Pair with: any kind of denim, both jeans and jackets
Admit it, you had one too! A fun age-appropriate alternative to purses, mini backpacks are perfect for sleepovers and trips to the mall with friends.
Look for: keychains, patches, and buttons to personalize your backpack and make it stand out from the crowd
Pair with: anything!
I might not have been alive for disco’s reign, but I love love love the flashy styles! This fall you’ll see a unique mix of contemporary athleisure mixed with disco gold and slick fonts that hark back to dance album covers.
Look for: eye-catching black & gold details in activewear and athleisure styles
Pair with: white sneakers for extra pop
Band t-shirts are back in a big way — especially those featuring groups that I listened to as a kid…or that could be found in your parent’s vinyl collection. You always knew that you had awesome musical taste, and now your kids will finally know it too!
Look for: t-shirts with timeless artists
Pair with: distressed denim or black leggings
