Creative director of Same Swim Shea Marie's velvet dress would make even Cher Horowitz green with envy (too bad it's not made of satin). In true '90s fashion, you can even layer a turtleneck or T-shirt under your dress to keep extra warm, or avoid a side boob situation.

Denim jackets are eternal fashion statement pieces, we know, but the oversized clothing trend is clearly lovingly borrowed from 1992(ish). Maria Helena Bordon Mereiles looks equally chic and edgy in her perfectly ill-fitting jean jacket, and you will, too.
