Kelly Kapowski


I've been itching to do a post on how much I LOVE Kelly Kapowski's and her style and how we can all steal it, thats if you like her style of course.
Some of you might not be aware of who Kelly Kapowski actually is, well she is a character from the amazing 90s show Saved by the Bell, anyone remember it? I absolutely loved watching it back in the day, it was definitely in my top 5 favourite 90s TV shows and Kelly was my favourite, followed by Zack. Anyway back to Kelly, I really loved the way she was dressed and styled on the show, her whole look is totally up my street, in fact the way the whole cast was dressed was so retro and 90s I seriously was/am still in love. 

In the early stages of Kelly's character, her look was literally high waisted errrythang, bright, beautiful colours, big stand out prints and very oversized. As her character developed on the show, her colours became darker and her fashion choices were much more mature, however, she still kept the classic off the shoulder and turtule neck looks. A lot of the outfits in these photos are slowly but surly creeping back into fashion, for example the off the shoulder tops, cropped turtle necks and floral boob tubes have been spotted in many high street shops. I actually haven't stopped telling you all how much I love the whole 90s trend and I really cannot stress it enough, AHHH its my favourote trend ever, even before it started becoming popular, I have always seemed to have 90s items in my wardrobe, from old clothes to my mums hand-me-downs. I thought it would be a cool idea to steal Kelly's style from one of my favourite shops, ASOS, this was because you can literally find EVERYTHING on that site, it is just so so amazing.

To be honest when writing this post it made me a little sad, I seriously miss the good old 90s days and the amazing TV shows back then, I wouldn't mind taking a trip back to the 90s aye. I literally turned the ASOS website upside down in search for Kelly-esque items and here are some of the one I felt really that really screamed Miss Kapowski. I think if Saved by The Bell was still around kelly would be seen in many of these items. Also in this selection there are colours, prints, designs and trends that are current at the moment too. I find so much inspiration from looking at old photos of Kelly and I love seeing the different ways she paired items together. 

Who were your childhood style inspirations?
