When I started this vintage post category I didn’t know how popular it would be. But surprisingly as of right now it is my most viewed topic on my blog and it’s all because of you the readers. I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and Nuflava is going in a new & improved direction.
I decided my first vintage flavoree would be talented entertainer Ms. Paula Abdul. Paula Abdul is most known for being a judge on American idol but before that she was a singer. My father absolutely loved her so I have always been hip to her music but who knew she had a fresh style to her.
Check out Paula Abdul’s vintage flava!
I love all of these looks, she had such fly style. I actually have some pieces in my closet that are similar but I never thought about putting them together the way she did. That last photo’s one piece is gorgeous. She was effortlessly beautiful.
Paula Abdul got that flava.
I’ve always admired Lisa Bonet’s bohemian style in The Cosby show. She was always so free spirited when it came to her wardrobe. Since the vintage look is trending so much now I knew her style would be perfect to inspire all of my fashionistas!
I love the stripe hat style, her and Queen Latifah rocked that fiercely. The hat kind of reminds me of a traditional African headwear the meN in my family wears. The picture with the sweatshirt and the tights is definitely a typical fall outfit for me. And that last photo is so beautiful and effortlessly elegant.I currently have a similar hair style. I love when my hair is untamed, big with beautiful curls just like the divas in the 80s. Hope y’all ladies got some ideas and remember to make it your own!
Didn’t you just love these two together? Jada Pinkett & Tupac were definitely my favorites growing up in the 90s. Their chemistry was so strong on and off camera I am surprised they did not do a movie together. They both had crazy styles that everyone had to have. From Jada’s platinum blonde hair to Tupac’s tied bandana there was no doubt that they were not fashion icons in the 90s. I love that photo of Tupac with those thug life overalls which was definitely a staple trend in the 90s for boys and girls.
So let them be an inspiration to your closet. Get creative and have fun!!!
I remember coming home from school and throwing my bag down in the living room with my eyes glued to the television screen because A different World was on. This show revealed to America the lives of successful HBCU students. Check out these fly ladies and gentlemen, the fashion of the college students at Hilman..
I’m lovig the vintage trend right now.. There’s nothing like a blast from the past!!!
We lost a legend a couple of months ago and im still torn by this because she had such a huge influence on my life when it came to music. Whitney Houston had “the voice” but she also had star appeal. Her diva appearance was flawless and her presence was phenomenal. I love that Super Bowl photo and she is wearing the hell outta that sequins shirt, free balling and all! Ladies get inspired from one of the most amazing female to ever struck the music industry… RIP my love..
Boyz N The Hood directed by John Singleton will always be a classic African-American film in my opinion. Now that i’m older, i’m pretty much over the script and paying attention to this vibrant fashion. There are so many ideas to choose from it is exciting. For the ladies my favorite is the girl in the last picture with the colorful shirt tied and the red hat on. I would definetly try that look with some boyfriend jeans. Also I love Regina Hall’s gGddess braids and the ladies plum lipstick, I think it is time to bring the plum lipstick back!! For the fellas I love Cuba Gooding’s shirt in the movie cover and his baseball jacket in the second photo. There are so many other fly looks to put together so knock ya self out!!
As a little kid growing up in the 90s, I could not wait to be a teenager so I could experience the fun of a unauthorized house party. I loved every bit of this movie but mostly I loved the fashion. There were so many different fashion statements going on in this movie both female and male. From Kid’s signature hair styles to TlC’s gender bender wear, you can tell that the 90s teenagers loved to have fun with their clothing. Sometimes I wish I was a teenager during the 90s instead of the millineum so I could experience the essence of these fashion trends. I also noticed how girls wore less revealing outfits as opposed to now where its all about the tighter, the better. But’s alright ladies if you got it, flaunt it! My favorite outfit is Left Eye‘s athletic gear, she was wearing the hell outta that jersey!!! RIP my beautiful sista.. Oh yea and Sharlene’s sweater was too fly, love the colors!
