The original Mean Girls style
Lunchtime poll…If a global pandemic hit this summer, what would you be wearing?
With so much indoor time on our hands, what better way to embrace the couch for a few hours than with your fav fashionable clique? Enter Heathers, the 1989 cult classic.
These original mean girls may be hell to sit with in the cafeteria, but they sure have the passion for fashion. And, while you may not subscribe to their specific style choices, the inspiration is more in their devil-may-care attitude.
We’ve been shut-ins for too long. Be loud! Be seen! Mix those patterns! Break out that over-the-top belt, those rose-colored therapy glasses, and whatever other impulse buys you’ve made over these past crazy months! (We’ve all done it.)
Those items spoke to you for a reason. So, get out there and wear what makes you smile – and what makes you, you. Now, great pate … but I gotta motor if I’m gonna make that party.
