there’s not much else i would add to my current wardrobe, although some can pull off the grunge look and nearly all of the trends above have circled around recently, particularly:

a great way to wear high waists is with skirts. if they sit at your natural waist (the thinnest part of your mid-section) and flare out a bit, they’ll create an ‘a’ or ‘a-frame’ shape, which is gorgeous on everyone.
