IT may be the dog days of summer, but autumn fashion is already here and a fashionista is wondering why it reminds her of what her mum used to wear.
Breanna Alexis aka Breannaalexisb on TikTok says she’s “addicted to fashion.” So it’s no surprise on a recent Walmart trip she unearthed some fall fashion finds, but more than one had a retro vibe.
TikTokers said Walmart has already started rolling out fall fashions, even as many retailers, overflowing with inventory, cut prices to get existing items out the door and make room for new items.
Breanna said that while it’s warm outside, she was able to find a few pieces that she can wear right now and then use to transition into fall.
The stylist showed off the well-curated move in her post.
One outfit was a light wash denim shorts jumpsuit with long puffy sleeves.
Even though she said she wouldn’t wear it right now because of the long sleeves, she couldn’t stop bragging about it.
“How cute is this … I feel like I’m wearing something my mom used to wear,” she said.
Taking the outfit a step further, the stylist envisioned how she would make it work for the fall season and showed viewers.
She paired it with a pair of long white boots she said she got on Amazon and a cowboy hat, saying it was the perfect outfit to wear to a concert.
It wasn’t the only temporary outfit she sourced from the retail giant.
She then showed off a strappy jumpsuit, which she said would work well for summer, but then paired it with a turtleneck and white booties to show everyone how smart it could look for the fall/winter season.
Finally, she pulled out a strapless plaid mini dress and said, “I guess everything my mom wore in high school is just coming back in style, but I love it.”
The fashion-savvy shopper showed off a great transitional look, pairing it with a loose, cropped off-white jumper from Forever 21, which she tucked into a bra she wore underneath and over the dress.
She accessorized it with a pair of caramel suede boots that she said she picked up from Target last year.
The final look had a retro look with a modern edge – definitely making it a look your mom would love to wear today.
Breanna has more than 236,000 followers on TikTok and her post received more than 3,000 likes and dozens of comments.
Only one person referenced the mommy outfit backlash, saying, “wait… how old are you, because I wore that in high school.”
Many others resented the way the North Carolina teenager effortlessly paired her outfits to make them fall-worthy and perhaps even more stylish.
One said: “Omg!!! The sweater with plaid… that’s a brilliant idea!” Many other followers also fell in love with the tip.
Another said: “I love how you styled the turtleneck under the jumpsuit! I want to do that this fall and winter!”
And one follower just raved about her styling. “I love it share more ideas!!”
Breanna promised she would for those looking for more stylish tips to get more wear out of your wardrobe.
