Stonewash, the one style trend I hoped would never make a comeback, reared its ugly head on the SDSU campus. While at SDSU I spotted a mix-match of trends pulled from both the 1980s and '90s. There was an abundance of combat boots, knee socks, military jackets, and stonewashed denim.
Alyssa Cabal purchased her stonewash jacket from SHOPLUNAB. She wore Ray Ban aviators paired with the ever so trendy quintessential fishtail braid that can be seen in just about every other fashion campaign over the last 6 months.
When asked what her least favorite trend is, Cabal said, “Anything from Forever 21. Everything there is tacky.”
Cabal's favorite wardrobe item is her oversized Michael Kors gold watch. Nordstrom sells the MK watch for $275.
SDSU student Anani Franklin wore a Forever 21 Bill Cosby inspired sweater. She sported stonewashed jeans from the resale shop, Buffalo Exchange. Everything Franklin wore was so 80's that she could've passed for a time traveler straight out of a John Hughes flick.
The 17-year-old is a Civil Engineering major. Franklin listed her least favorite style trends as Uggs, off-the-shoulder sweaters, and knee socks.
19-year-old Megan Corletto wore black knee-socks from Flashbacks. In her clunky glasses, patent leather oxfords, and button-down top (both B.P, from Nordstrom) she resembled a young Sarah Jessica Parker in "Square Pegs". Corletto purchased her high-waisted, velvet, circle-skirt from Urban Outfitters.
Corletto's least favorite trend is highwaisted short-shorts.
"They look like denim underwear," she said of the trend.
20-year-old film major, Carolina Roberts, paired studded-denim shorts from Urban Outfitters with black tights and combat boots. She wore a burgundy Forever 21 sweater.
When asked what her least favorite trend was she didn't hesitate before saying, "Military jackets."
Hilariously, I was wearing a military jacket.
"I'm sorry," she told me, "I'm just not a fan of the look."
No big deal, I’m not a fan of studded denim shots paired with tights.
