Yeezy isn’t revolutionary: Biker Shorts, an 80’s trend comeback

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s! It’s your classic cal gal here. As I’m writing this, it’s kind of annoying that I feel the need to start off by writing about the weather. But you know what isn’t so annoying? Well it sort of is, 80’s trends baby! If you don’t already know I am NOT a fan of the fashion from the 80’s decade. The 80’s are making their comeback thanks to the Kardashians. Kim K. is pictured stepping out in head to toe Yeezy apparel. I’m not here to say that Kim K’s fashion is lame or to hate on her, I’m a huge Kardashian fan(guilty!) and I admire their fashion sense. I’m just pointing out how trends make a comeback and in this case it just happens to be an 80’s trend.

Notice how Kim pairs her shorts with sneakers and socks that bunch at the ankles you’ll see how this is very 80’s… scroll on.

Recently, I’ve seen Kim Kardashian sporting Yeezy biker shorts. While she styles the biker shorts so nicely, I will be the one to say that the Yeezy biker shorts aren’t revolutionary or a remotely new trend, sorry.

Let’s take a look at Kim K’s array of biker short outfits:

I don’t know if Kim and the Yeezy brand think they’re making groundbreaking fashion moves but they’re not and here’s why.

The exercise scene was HUGE in the 80’s, think bright colored leotards and legwarmers (cause you needed to keep your legs warm when working out). With this fad the biker shorts emerged onto the fashion scene and in the world of exercise. Take a look.

From famous Olympians…

…to your average teenage girl next door.

And hey look it’s Princess Di, sporting the biker shorts!

Notice how they sport the biker shorts with sneakers and socks that bunch at the ankle.

The shorts also lingered on into the 90’s as seen in clueless;

Heck, I even have photos of my mom sporting the biker shorts in the early 90’s. But these biker shorts could be the leggings of summer. Why? Because in the summer it gets really hot and sometimes it’s too hot to don your favorite pair of leggings. Thanks Kim K. for bringing back the biker shorts! (To be continued…)

Honey, take me on vacation! Styling the Floral Romper

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s!♥ C.C here. Have you ever wanted to escape on a vacation getaway to the beach and just become a mermaid? And never return? Same. Well although we can only be mermaids in our hearts, we can still soak up the sun in style while on vacation. My favorite trend? Rompers! They’re great because they come in all sorts of colors and styles giving you many options to find something that fits you. For this article I will be talking about the shoulder less bell sleeve romper style.

I LOVE the pastel colors on my romper. I also LOVE the off the shoulder bell sleeve design giving it a boho edge but the pink accents keep it girly.

It has a thin sort of belt to tie at the waist to frame it. If you’re a short curvy girl like myself, I recommend a romper that has a similar design that frames your waist. Since I’m short I find that the rompers that are sort of loose fitting makes one look shapeless and out of proportion. Don’t let that happen to you. This is what makes shopping for rompers tricky. You can totally look fabulous, just find one that frames your body shape and above all makes you feel and look amazing. Because we came to slay.

What I love about rompers is that you can just throw one, put on your favorite heels and maybe accessorize and you’ll look fancy a’f with minimal effort. It’s perfect for those days when you just don’t know what to wear.

But as you know me, I don’t know how to keep it simple. I paired this romper with my favorite sun hat because you can’t go on vacation without a sun hat.  I was feeling the pink accents on my romper so I paired it with these bright pink chunky heeled sandals. Oh, and my outfit isn’t complete without a little bit of jewelry bling.

If you’re feeling a little bit more edgy, try going for a flowy bell sleeve instead of the shoulder less style. Romper from Forever 21.

I own a romper similar to this design (pictured on the bottom) and I absolutely love it because I can just throw on my favorite sandals for a casual look. I recommend it and it’s also from Forever 21.

See how well the chunky heeled sandals are styled with the romper? Take notes.

Chose your romper wisely and you’ll be on your way to being the most fabulous woman in town.
