July 1988 Fashion Etc.: Stripes, Curls & Looking Like A Skater

Start listening

While the July 1988 cover goes hard for American-flag style (…and, okay, so does Sassy Club), the rest of the fashion in this issue is not overly patriotic. We’re going to Arizona — or somewhere very dry and hot — for a swimwear spread. We’re in an old-timey cottage for some undergarment looks. And then: stripes. So many stripes. We’re also learning about hot-weather hair help, products from the beauty closet the Sassy staff swears by, how to look like a skateboarder (and possibly get called a poser in the process), and so much more. Stick some American-flag toothpicks in your hair — or don’t — and join us!
