[C]ast your mind back to some of your earliest fashion memories. Branded tees and baggy jeans? Your personal take on the emo trend in the ’00s? A jewellery box filled with only the best stretch choker necklaces? Call it NOWstolgia, but these iconic teen looks, if regrettable in retrospect, are now absurdly cool again. Kudos to Vetements and co, now everyone’s looking to My Chemical Romance band mates for wardrobe inspiration.
Delve further back into your photo album and young girls will probably have adorned a Pretty Pink Dress at some point. Girlish. Prim. Sugary sweet. I rejected the hue almost completely when I hit my late teens – it just wasn’t cool. But, as Carly Simon says, “they say nothing stays the same, but if you’re willing to play the game, it’s coming around again.” Thanks to a plethora of designers rehashing the popular spring trend for AW17, pink’s enjoyed a much needed rebrand for the post-gender generation.
