Adding a '90s Twist To Your Look

Fashion is cyclical and it's about old ideas repackaged and repurposed with a contemporary twist. Thus, you can expect to see a cycle of trends that takes us back around 20 or 30 years and re-sells us the kinds of clothes our parents might have worn in their youth with a few more modern bells and whistles. As such, you’ll often see '90s influences in today’s looks and silhouettes in the same ways that the gradual flares and pointed collars of mid-90s fashion owed a debt to the looks of the '70s.

Why are we so in love with the ‘90s?


Of course ‘90s nostalgia extends far beyond the world of fashion. For many people working in the fashion industry today the ‘90s represent their youth, their freedom and a less complicated time. The ‘90s were, after all, a relatively peaceful and prosperous decade and birthed a whole host of cultural pears from Nirvana to Friends.

If you want to inject a little 90s influence into your own signature style but aren’t sure where to start, here are some pointers to try…

Embrace chokers


If you were around in the ‘90s you’ll remember that chokers were absolutely everywhere! And with good reason. They’re a gorgeous and versatile accessory that can add a certain je ne sais quois to virtually any outfit. They can be dressed up or down. They can be jewelled- check out the online shop Adina’s Jewels for some super cute examples- or they can be a simple strip of fabric. They’re the accessory you never even knew your outfit was missing.




Add a little flare to your jeans


If you want to add a little late ‘90s touch to your aesthetic while also making legwear comfortable opt for jeans with a gradual flare. They’re perfect for day wear but can also be dressed up for a night out.




Crop tops… They’re for everyone!


Crop tops are another ‘90s staple that is currently making a huge comeback. But even if you don’t have a perfectly sculpted midriff that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear your crop top with pride. There are many models of all shapes and sizes who prove that crop tops are for everyone! If like me, you don't want to show much of your skin, you can still make it work by wearing something underneath.




Go grunge


If you want to recreate a ‘90s look while also adding a rebellious streak to your ensemble don’t be afraid to go grunge with your casual outfits. Those flared jeans will suit this look well or gouge a few rips in a seldom used pair of skinny jeans. Tie a flannel shirt around your waist, wear your favourite band’s t-shirt with pride, add a few layers to a slip dress or top off your look with a baggy denim jacket. The beauty of grunge is that there are no rules and you can totally make this look your own.




Tie-dye is back (again)


This trend sums up the independent spirit of Gen Z and millennial consumers. It's great for summer and adds that fun, colourful touch to your life.




Hair Clips 


Hair clips and hair barrettes are back and with strength. Everyone is wearing them. Just have a look at your Instagram feed and you will find plenty of inspiration on how to style them.




There are many more trends from the '90s but these are the ones I like the most. The beauty of fashion is that you can incorporate as much or as little of the above as you like. Choose your own look. Forge your own path, and stay your beautiful self!

I hope you enjoyed reading this article. Let me know in the comments what you think about the '90s fashion trends. :)

See you soon!
