Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All had some great early nineties fashion. She loved layers, loud prints, loud colors, and black boots. What would she wear today if we bumped into her?
She might be wearing a polka dot chiffon scarf in neon yellow to get the layers she loves, a bright color, and a pattern too. We’re sure she’d also still be mixing patterns, but to bring it up to date, they’d be in the same color family. She might bring out the color of the polka dot and pair it with a striped shirt in the same color family.
Another style she enjoyed was bright colored socks with black shoes. Today she could incorporate bright tights into her look and rock some black ankle booties. She might even have updated her loose black leather jacket to a cropped bomber jacket.
Clarissa loved her statement pieces so jewelry and clutches would be a great way for her to still express herself. A statement necklace like this vintage multi layer collar necklace would be a unique piece. For purses she’d let her imagination run wild. Anything from knuckle duster clutches to give her a tough feel, a glass bugle bead hard box clutch for a unique pattern, to a bright chevron straw and matching leather envelope clutch for her love of color.
Regardless of what she’d be wearing, you know she’d be doing something she was passionate about.
