Best Of The 90's: Fashion.
Truth is that the 90s have been back and around for a while and we’ve seen it everywhere, from the classic slip dresses to flannels and high-waisted jeans. But there’s much more than that. I’ve selected some of my favourite pictures from the era that might also be a great source of inspiration when struggling with your Winter wardrobe.
1. Black turtleneck + light high waisted jeans. This one has to be one of my favourite looks because of how simple and elegant it is. You’ll probably have these items already in your closet: a simple black turtleneck and a pair of light washed jeans (which you have most probably stored after the Summer, so rescue them form a live of boredom because they’re going to be a MUST this season!). Christy’s also wearing a pair of black ankle boots and pearl earrings to add interest but without making it complicated.
2. Floral dress + boots. I’m obsessed with this look, and I can’t wait to wear it all day when temperatures get warmer. I’m sure you have a floral dress hanging on your wardrobe (probably a wrap dress if you followed last summer trends) that’s similar to this one. Just put on a pair of Dr. Martens (or similar) and you’ve got the look. Plus, it’s a great way to wear them out of the winter season and adding on that cost per wear.
3. LBD + Over-the-knee boots. Apart from being very on trend, over-the-knee boots look amazing on everyone, and there’s no need to buy the Stuart Weitzman ones (even though they’re definitely worth the hype) because almost every high street brand has got a pair. Want some that look like the ones Kate is wearing? & Other Stories has got a very similar pair in leather and with this slouchy feel. Pair them with a little black dress (preferably silky and strappy) and you’ve got the perfect look for a night out.
4. Turtleneck + shirt + blazer. If you’re feeling brave and want to try something new, this layered look that Brooke Shields is wearing is what you should go for. It can be kind of scary layering that much, but the key is to pair neutrals, and patterns that aren’t very hard on the eyes. So try a light colored turtleneck in cream or grey, then button halfway a shirt in a darker color and pop on a blazer that matches the turtleneck (beware of clashes of colors like beige and grey that sometimes can give the impression you dressed in the dark).
5. Oversized sweater + silk skirt. This picture from Cameron Diaz in the 90s always makes me smile (spot the bottle of water she’s trying to hide behind her) and the look is so easy to put together. Any oversized sweater will work here, as long as it’s not super long and hides the silk skirt. When trying to look for the silk skirt, it’s better to go for a dark color (I would definitely go for black). But, if you don’t want to buy anything, you can also wear that silk dress you used for look number 3, and wear the sweater on top: it’s the easiest way to reuse the dress and to change your outfit form day to night.
