As temperatures drop, fashion fiends still manage to keep up with '90s trends without the help of summery crop tops and ripped jorts. Luckily, retro collaborations like Wrangler x Open Ceremony’s Value Collection(offers unisex sizes 25-35 bottoms and XS-XL tops) are here just in time to help you transition into a new wardrobe. The collection is specifically designed for fall and winter, featuring a series of baggy jeans, jackets, and long-sleeved pieces.
Wrangler and Open Ceremony have come together to launch the so-called Value Collection. According to a press release from the two fashion brands, the limited edition line is a resurgence of Wrangler’s most notable (and nostalgic) styles pulled from the brand’s archived silhouettes that were made popular in big box superstores across the U.S. The pieces featured from Wrangler’s '90s styles include dad jeans, zip jeans, dungarees, denim jackets, windbreakers, and various graphic tees.
The term “value” in the collection's name references the culture around superstores. Across the U.S., customers would shop jeans, flannels, and tees alongside their bacon, eggs and other groceries, grabbing everything in one place. Not to mention, the styles made in The Value Collection are all sold at a budget-friendly price point.
The collection is as authentically ‘90s as it gets since the styles in this line were derived directly from old Wrangler advertisements. Fans will find that the updated version of the jeans, shorts, and tops worn in the decade are made with 2019 features like organic cotton and cross stitch details. This collection is one blast from the past you’ll remember years from now.
Items in the ‘90s-inspired fall collection will be sold in limited quantities and retail between $40 to $140. If you like what you see, the collection is already available in Open Ceremony locations worldwide and online at OpeningCeremony.com/Designers/W/WRANGLER/. Here are some of the best picks.
Wrangler Value Popover Jacket
Don't let all the various nude colors being featured on the shopping racks this season sway you from playing with color. The Wrangler Value Popover Jacket is made with a mint, orange, and black color blocking design, making it a standout piece in the collection. Plus, this jacket is equipped with snap closures, elastic cuffs and hem, and a big bib pocket to store your phone and other knick knacks.
Wrangler Dungaree Jean
Nothing brings back the '90s like a thick pair of denim overalls. Rock your fall like Matilda's Miss Honey in this oversized Dungaree fit that's made with 100% organic cotton. If there's one iconic moment in the collection you should splurge on, this pick is definitely a contender.
Wrangler Long Sleeve Value Rugby
Graphic tees are an easy fix for a last-minute wardrobe change. This street style rugby tee color blocked in mint, gray, and black is designed with a college style collar and a half zip detail. If the giant Value Wrangler logo tee doesn't prove to be a statement piece, who knows what is.
Wrangler Surplus Jean
The days of cutting up your jeans into shorts are over and now you can have both. The Wrangler Surplus Jean pays homage to the endless convertible pants you can tear off with just a quick unzip. You can snatch up these jeans for $120, but you can also get a pair of the Straight Zipper Pants that let you transform your pants into three versatile styles for the same price.
Wrangler Value Tee
Shoppers who love bright-colored tees can find solace in this collection, because it's packed with bold prints like this one. The front displays the collection's blue and white logo, but the back leaves wearers with an almost invisible white and gray version of the logo. Fans can shop this crewneck and others in the line for $40.
Wrangler Women's Value Jacket
This collection wouldn't be complete without a classic denim Wrangler jacket, and this one features a straight fit silhouette. The jacket not only wears as a jacket, but wearers can also remove the sleeves to turn the piece into a denim vest. It's like getting two looks for the price of one.
