Is that time of year already! For some of us, there is no school no go to, and yet, we can reminisce about those wonder years wearing some key pieces. These 5 school basics that are very now, and have a slight 90’s vibe. To show their versatility, I’ve put together looks for both morning and evening for each piece.
Backpacks are great for carrying a ton of stuff without having to balance the weight between two arms. There are cool designs for pretty much any style.
Graphic tees are awesome statement pieces that are very simple, and can be worn to hang out at the mall or even go to a meeting if paired with the right accessories.
Who doesn’t love an oversize plaid shirt? You can wear them as jackets, shirts or even as a dress if you pair them with a belt.
Ripped jeans have become a must-have during all seasons, and can go very easily from casual to more sophisticated in an instant.
Dust the sneakers and take them out of the closet! When running errands or having a full day of activities, sneakers are the best option especially if they have a neutral color.

The gingham print is a favorite spring staple, not only because it looks fresh but because it does have a picnic-esque allure. Over the last seasons many designers have opted for this pattern to parade through their runways.
DVF brought the total gingham look to the spring 2015 runway.
Back in 2010, Christopher Kane played with the print on different fabrics and textures.
De la Renta also played with a total look, but with oversize squares.
Aggugini incorporated the gingham with cartoon maps.
Both Lam and Balmain took advantage of the feminine aspect of the piece in the silhouettes.
Michael Kors referenced the 50’s with full skirts on different occasions.
1. Pair your favorite gingham piece with another pattern that has the same color.
2.Wear different sizes of the pattern with the same color and add a pop of color with the accessories.
3.Combine the pattern with pieces in different colors for a more original look.

February, the second month of fashion, is quickly passing by! And while the shows are exceptional, I personally prefer to check out the countless fashionistas that impose trends for the rest of the year.
Gray is a very tricky color because not all hues go well with different skin types. The best to do is to wear an all gray look is by mixing different patterns and textures.
The 90’s most iconic cartoons are back! Wear one statement piece with your favorite character, and pair it with your favorite pairs of jeans.
Metal details go great with darker pieces and add a touch of strength to any item.
The structured lady bag in a smaller size is making a comeback in neutral and pastel colors, which go great with a fall palette.
These are some of my picks from the renown photographer Tommy Ton, and you can check out all his photos at style.com.
