#ThriftyThursday: Throwback trends are in style

January 12, 2017

#ThriftyThursday: Styles that were once loved never fail to make their way back into the fashion scene. Throughout 2016, I noticed a renewed appreciation for the Scottish Terrier design. The terrier print paired with red plaid skirts was popular back in 1970s. While women’s clothing has evolved over the years, the terriers have made their way back into the woman’s closet!

 

I have always been a fan of an original look. I purchased my Scottish terrier sweatshirt at the Hurstborne Lane location (Louisville). Keeping the 1970s style in mind, underneath I wore a black and white plaid button-up from the Stonewall location (Lexington).

 

My vintage sweatshirt looks similar to ones sold in stores at an affordable price. Macy’s currently has a Charter Club Scottish Terrier sweater in stock that retails for $59.50. My entire look, button-up and sweatshirt, was purchased for less than $8.50!

 

What was once was will come again. From terriers to prints, good trends never go out of style.

 

Best,
