Timeless v. Trendy: which is more YOUR style?
Before I answer this question, I admit that I have been watching a lot of Stranger Things Season 4 lately. One of the draws of the series for me is the nostalgia of each episode. I am constantly commenting on Nancy Wheeler’s hair (“OMG everyone of us had that Madonna curly bob!”) or on her slouchy boots with brush painted skirt (“Every stylish girl wore that outfit back then!”). I imagine that Nancy would’ve been the fashionable older teenage girl that I looked up to back then. While some of her fashion is more horrifying than the Upside Down, all of it evokes feelings of nostalgia and takes me back to 1986 and all the feels that came with that year.
With this in mind, I tend to gravitate more towards classic, timeless pieces in my wardrobe. This is more friendly on my budget but it also keeps me from looking back at photos twenty years down the road and saying to myself, “WHAT WAS I THINKING WITH THAT OUTFIT?!” Thus, I tend to supplement with select trends: it will evoke those same sort of Nancy Wheeler nostalgia feelings to the outfit when I look back at photographs in the years to come.
