In the spirit of cheekiness and sportswear on the rise (see StyleStalker’s Fall 2013 Baller collection – swoon, squeal, giggle – repeat) as well as 90’s grunge, I’ve decided to share some of my “Baller” essentials. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the flannel around waist trick making its rounds in the blogosphere that adds a certain coolness factor, effortlessness, and layer of intrigue. In this case, I’m a huge fan of this mock-tie skirt that lets you achieve the same factor without actually having to tie something around your waist. Additionally, the plaid (and the barely-there hoodie) is a tribute and nod to the 90’s moment we’re having right now with the upcoming fall season (see fall 2013 runways, e.g. 3.1 Phillip Lim) – it’s no surprise that I’m a 90’s baby, too.
