Lorena’s word: The mini skirt has evolved since [the 1960s], varying in different lengths, materials and shapes, but the idea stayed the same: run, dance, move freely and, of course, show off those legs!
’70s Wrap dress
Runway look: Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear
Buy: Diane Von Furstenberg Wrap Dress; $598; Available at bloomingdales.com
Lorena’s word: The wrap dress was extremely popular overnight, as it was meant for all women – no matter your height, weight or build, as it flatters them all. Furthermore, it was a very versatile piece that could be worn both to work by day, and to clubs by night. This is what I would suggest you keep in your closet forever.

Lorena’s word: Ah, the 1980s, probably my personal favorite decade in fashion. I believe there is no era in fashion as widely loved as this one. It was a time filled with all oversized and over-the-top, an era filled with shiny leggings, lots of color, big slouchy, oversized tops and, of course, how can we forget – history was made when Hermès introduced the Birkin Bag in 1984 and changed the way we look at purses forever.

Lorena’s word: The 1990s brought an anti-conformist approach to fashion making us all, subconsciously, fashionable or in. The 1990s eventually created a new trend in fashion called the casual chic, making the white or black T-shirt, especially those baring European designer label logos, and jeans look very popular, along with hoodies and sneakers.
