July 1990 Fashion Etc.: Dickies, Curlers & Miss Personality Plus

Start listening

The July 1990 issue has a lot of ideas about your look. Some are good, like the spread of 40s-inspired swimsuits. Some are weird, like the Making It suggestion that you cut off the collar and cuffs of a buttondown shirt and just tuck them, loose, into a pullover sweater, hoping for the best. Some are simply Not Done anymore, like getting white girl “beach braids” on your visit to the Caribbean. We’re telling you about all this and more — including a bumper crop of all-new ads! — in the July 1990 Fashion Etc. issue!
