Revisiting Kelly Kapowski's Wardrobe

As I think about icons of my childhood, one name always rises to the top: Kelly Kapowski. Okay, maybe she wasn't real, but Tiffani (Amber) Thiessen as Kelly was beautiful, fashionable and undeniably the coolest girl at Bayside. I was captivated by Kelly from an early age, and remember desperately wanting her wardrobe and boyfriend. It's true - I firmly believe Zack Morris is still one of the smoothest, hottest characters in television history.


Although Saved by the Bell reigned in the late '80s and early '90s, upon watching re-runs, I realized  Kell was rocking some trends that can be easily updated in today's closet.


Floral Frenzy
One thing Kelly wore in nearly every episode were florals. Floral denim, floral tops and floral dresses were  serious staples for her.


Although Kelly did this in a very '90s way, florals are on-trend right now. Try something along the lines of the below to add a pop to your closet.

Shopbop



Denim Appreciation
Ms. Kapowski was a big fan of denim jackets, sometimes even pairing them with denim skirts or pants.


While to some, this trend feels outdated, it actually can be worn in a fresh way by playing with fits, silhouettes and proportions.

Skirting the Issue
Kelly never struggled with the stress of coordinating separates. The majority of her outfits were skirts paired with a cropped tee, tank top or jacket.


Don't be afraid to show some leg with a mini skirt. The key is to find the right cut and fit for your body type. I recommend enveloping this trend into another one of my favorites, neons. (Of course, you know I adore everything neon.)

  5. Stay on top of trends and show off your fashionable style during your teenage years. Girls can push the limits on fashion, and get away with styles that adults can only dream of doing. Maintain your budget by shopping with your friends and swapping clothing and accessories to keep your outfits fresh and chic.bayside 5040
