It’s A Different World (In Fashion)

ADifferentWorld_Cast

Growing up, TV was a threshold in America. You had The Cosby Show, The Jefferson’s, Different Strokes, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, In Living Color, Living Single, The Nanny, Saved By The Bell, Boy Meets World, Family Matters, Daria, Sister Sister, Three’s Company, The Brady Bunch, Star Trek...the list goes on and on and on.

But who can forget, A Different World! One of the Best Shows EVER!! It made me super excited about college.

Most people remember it as a spinoff from the Cosby Show and at first, was based around Denise Huxtable’s Character after she enrolled in the fictional Hilman College.  But who could forget the uniqueness of Whitley, Dwayne, Jaleesa, Freddie and Ron and their experience with college, greek life, parties, love, politics and FASHION! This show paved the way for how people profiundly viewed social, political and social issues. Not only did it raise awareness, it paved the way for fashion in the 80’s and 90’s.

Today history seems to be repeating itself.  More and more people moving towards the trends of the 80’s and 90’s. This era has to be probably the best era in fashion because it made it ok to look different.The 80’s and 90’s were probably the most creative, personality driven eras in fashion.  Generation X, the most outspoken, outgoing, flamboyant generation,  seems fits this era well.

Now we know that thrifting has become an outlet for finding vintage pieces from this era, but many people ask, “how can you look vintage without looking thrifted?” It takes time and a great attention to detail, as well as creativity. Sometimes it’s great to mix vintage and modern pieces. Whether you want to be fly like D’wayne or Classy like Whitley, there’s a way to look fresh like the cast members of A Different World

Lashed Out wants to show you some ways to implement their fashion into your life based on your personality.

Get ready to thrift ladies and gents!! Lashed Out is going to give you some ideas! Get ready for “A Different World” (in fashion)!
