Damn Cara, back at it again with the referential 90s outfits. I can't help it though - nothing inspires my style more than movies and TV shows and old photos from the decade, so whenever I'm stuck for outfit ideas they are always the first place that I turn to. The Craft and its witchy, gothy looks was a huge source of inspiration for me when I first got into 90s fashion and things have clearly come full circle in this outfit. I managed to snag this vintage beauty on Depop last week - I love me a plaid mini as you all know too well, and this one is actually quite different to the existing skirts that I own due to the a-line silhouette and more monochromatic colour scheme. This makes it perfect paired with any colour or, as I've done here, all black everything else. I really played with the "weird goth at your high school" vibe here with the chunky boots and velvet choker - can't you just imagine one of the Craft girls rocking them with her school uniform? I think I might make these film inspired looks into a series of sorts here on the blog; I really love taking ideas from stylish characters that I love and reinterpreting them into my own personal style.
