Cute on Coins: The 90s Trend

It's Flashback Friday! What better way to celebrate than to reflect on this Summer's 90s trend. From Paris to Atlanta, women everywhere are  fearlessly wearing their own versions of 90s classics. Some prefer to go completely old-school, rocking dead-stock wears straight from the thrift store while others prefer to shop for modern renditions from fresh new designers. Either way, it is the hottest trend in the streets right now and we are digging it.

Read on to see what 90s pieces you should own this season.

1. Overalls

Denim Overalls

Denim overalls are not just for the farm. They are fun, casual, and surprisingly versatile. You can rock it with a simple tee to look more sophisticated or you can have some fun and wear a funky print. Either way you'll look dope. Cop this one at ASOS.

2. Baby T-Shirts

DMPC shirt

Crop tops aren't the only mid-driff-baring shirts that are hot this season. Tiny tees are back with logos, graphic prints, patterns, and all the above. Indulge in this look by buying a tee two sizes down next time you go shopping. We love this one by Dimepiece LA.

3. Nameplate Necklaces

Name Necklace

Find anyone from Rihanna to fashion editors wearing the nameplate, an urban staple. Available in many styles and range of price points, the custom name necklace has re-emerged as a must have piece on and off the runways. Some opt for simple custom necklaces but we prefer straight up old-school versions. The bolder and bigger the better! Check out classic styles like this one that don't break the bank at Love Jewelry By Jenny.

4. Mesh

Mesh Top

Mesh can be a little intimidating but don't fret. No one says you have to wear pasties to pull this one off. Wear a form fitting slip or bra underneath a mesh tunic or top to cover up and look sexy at the same time. This one is available at Nasty Gal.

5. Birkenstocks

BirkenstockBirkenstocks are back and better than ever. We're sure you remember your mom wearing these around the house growing up. Now they are updated with fresh colorways and styles. White ones are right on trend for the season, so get yourself a pair at River Island.

6. Baggy Distressed Jeans

Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

Baggy jeans are so comfortable and extremely old-school. Add a few rips in the knees or thighs and you've got a complete 90s look. To avoid looking frumpy pair these with a sleek top and heels or even a dope pair of kicks. Buy this pair at Nordstrom.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
