Fashion is fun and references back to our younger, sillier days even more so! Hallo 90s trends – bucket hats, chunky platforms and wide leg jeans – which are set to infiltrate our spring/summer wardrobe as sure as Posh Spice is quite nice under it all…!
I’m not a great trend wearer myself, trend pieces tend to wear me rather than me wear them. I need clothes with gentle lines that kind of assimilate to my shape – I don’t really have the stature to do big shoulders or bulky silhouettes!
So this is how I plan to work in some 90s touches to my spring/summer outfits…
Bomber jacket & satin skirt
- A bomber jacket is a nice easy one that gives a relaxed neckline but good 90s puffer nipped-in-at-the-waist shape – my Gap one (gifted) is sold out, but here is another similar. Paired with a Kate Moss of the 90s slinky satin skirt is a nice contrast and of course, just add a chunky sandal. I’m trading in my Birks for something a bit more chic and investment.
2. Two things going on here – the Adidas 90s-design led Jung 96s (big mid-sole, multi-coloured and wide fit) are super comfy and I love how they look. Fab with a skirt or dress too. And the party head tropical print of the shirt feels like an easy 90s nod tied in a knot at the belly button, natch! The super high-waist of the Levi’s ribcage makes a little bare skin more doable IMO.
3. A utility dress (forever thanks to All Saints for your unforgettable crazy strong utility trousers moment!) is a great alternative to the softer, more feminine dresses available right now. I love the toughness of this dress and am quite happen to toughen things up further with big chunky almost goth boots (these from the H&M x Eytys collab but sold out!). Contrast with a minimalist bag.
