They say what goes around comes around, and right now that rings true of the 90s trend. Here's how to rock the look.
It's the decade that's making a major comeback right now, in more ways than one. There's the almighty return of Pokemon Go flooding every news site and Facebook feed on repeat, the highly anticipated Spice Girls reunion tour we've all been eagerly awaiting and the 90s trend edits popping up on every online retailer - now is the time to jump on the bandwagon.
Back then we took our style cues from the likes of Friends, Sex and the City and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and we copied celebrities like Gwen Stefani and super model Kate Moss, but what's changed? I still put a cheeky SATC ep or two on to get a little sartorial inspiration.
Fashion in the 90s was grown up grunge worn with a hint of rebellion, 'tough girl chic', and we're welcoming the revival of the trend with open arms. Wide open! Think crop tops worn with jean jackets, flannel tied around your waist and pretty sky-high platforms, cool-girl black chokers and berry shade lips.
Here's the 411 on how to embrace this much loved throwback.Feature image source: THE ICONIC
