Abandoned Chic

I might be in my third decade of life but I’m saying no more to being a fashion industry test dummy. I’m not throwing in my towel yet to outlandish fads, and neither should you!

I’m declaring my treatise: no more steady diet of – laser cut, bias cut, zigzag cut or otherwise cut – Nasty Gal dresses (or the actual diets required to wear them). No more supplemental hipster jewelry that manifests later in the form of green skin wrath. And please, my eyes can’t handle any more psychedelic, neon-printed hodgepodge.

Here’s my definitive guide to Abandoned Chic, the unexpected classics that twenty-somethings and beyond can embrace. The top five looks showcase fall’s movement into minimalism. They’ll earn you the attention that a crop-top demands with all the staying power of your LBD.

1.     The Longline Vest

Because pastels should be appropriate for fall.

2.     The Leg-Loving Heel

Because mandals outstayed their welcome.

3.     The Skinny Rebel

Because you’ve got two options, the girlfriend variety or the 90s rendition, pick your fancy.

If you must adhere to a strict routine of skinny, up the ante of your purchase and eliminate some ocean waste while you’re at it with Pharrell’s new Bionic Yarn venture and this skinny pair of raw denim.

4.     The Backpack

Because you just may forget you’re toting around your obligations if they’re stowed away behind you.

5.     The Overdressed Cocktail Gown

Because sometimes black is a bland excuse for a classic.
