Rake up this year’s top returning fall fashions at RebateBlast and earn cash back on your favorite comebacks.
Step Back Footwear
Beginning from the ground up, this year’s returning fashions include platform shoes and old-school sneakers. Platforms, Converse® and Vans® each have long comeback histories. The platform shoe resurfaced in the late 1990s thanks in part to the UK band, the Spice Girls. Today the platform shoe continues on the vertical rise as a real fashion staple including platform sneakers. The Converse® Chuck Taylor All Star has risen from the world's most prevalent basketball sneaker to a lifestyle staple. Loved for their history, comfort and simplicity, high-top Conies are must-haves. Vans® slip-ons regained popularity in the 1980s through Sean Penn in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and resurfaced in the ‘90s as sponsors of the Triple Crown skateboard contest. This fall more than skater dudes are sporting these colorful classics.
The origin of boyfriend fashion comes from women borrowing and wearing their boyfriends’ clothes—his distressed jeans, band tees, dress shirts, blazers or his cardigan. The ‘90s Salt-N-Pepa® hip-hop trio and Madonna® showed there's a certain confidence that comes along with a woman who can assert her femininity in oversized clothing. Fashion tips for how to wear boyfriend fashion include layering, pairing with leggings or skinny jeans, button collar or tying these oversized shirts around your waist. Luckily, one doesn’t need a boyfriend to sport this style. Check out Macy’s®, Old Navy®, American Eagle® or Urban Outfitters® for a great selection of boyfriend shirts in flannel, cotton and denim. Then snag your show off-worthy leggings at Forever 21® or American Apparel®.
Crop-top and High Rise
We can thank Gwen Stefani from the band No Doubt® and Jennifer Anderson in Friends® for this ‘90s trend – the return of crop tops and high-rise pants. Today’s fuller pants, like pleats, wide legs, harem pants or pencil skirts, are figure flattering when paired with a crop top to offset the higher rise and draped heaviness on bottom. Crop tops also look great with grudge cardigan or tied shirt at the waist. Perhaps, the return of the midriff will also mean the return of the much loved Suzanne Somers ‘80s abs machine!
The beauty and character of age is made distinct and compelling in an old trucker or bomber jacket. Today’s jean and leather oversized jackets are influenced by ‘90s Drew Barrymore. A leather jacket is timeless even when its not trending, but in the past few years they’ve become a big hit again. Buy tried and true Levi’s® Trucker jackets in rugged dark wash. Find leather jackets at Tommy Hilfiger®, Lands’ End® and Forzieri®.
The Final Throw-Back
Ray-Ban® Wayfarers® or Aviators as worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun are simply classics. From presidents, movie stars, and rock stars to artists, fashion designers and runway models, there is not a generation alive that can’t remember owning or wanting a pair of these iconic sunglasses. Find your pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses at a discount when you shop FramesDirect.com® or EyeSave.com®.
