A Dose of Sweet and Sour

Outfits like these – that mix girly pieces, like a banded skirt and lace top, with edgier pieces, like a utilitarian jacket – will always remind me of a trend we discussed when I was on the Nordstrom Fashion Board labeled “sweet and sour.” It’s funny how styles that were “trends” at a few years ago are now go-to looks in my closet. Things like chambray shirts were once deemed trends, but have become closet staples. Sometimes it can be so hard to tell which “trends” are here to stay.
