90's fashion look


Nothing says the 90s quite like a slip-dress. Sleek slip dresses are a timeless staple in any wardrobe. The most iconic slip dresses worn by celebrities like Winona Ryder, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss are a fashion inspiration in this decade too.

Add an element of seduction, with a high-slitted slip dress and a pair of strappy heels.


Who could imagine that a humble basic tank top can find its place on the fashion runway of high-end luxury brands like Prada and Bottega Veneta? Fashion is unpredictable.

With the rise of love for minimal and effortless style, a tank top is a must-have. Pair it with a pair of trousers or a maxi skirt for a trendy go-to street style.


Cat-eye frames are back and they are sharper than ever. We are getting Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston vibes here. Add a pair of cat eye sunglasses with minimal accessories to elevate your look in seconds.


Remember Cher’s iconic yellow plaid skirt and blazer set from Clueless? Of course, you do. Many fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta and Versace have taken inspiration from the same for their designs over the years.

This back-to-school trend is here to stay. Opt for a coordinated look for an adult style.


Claw clips or banana clips aren't just used to hold your hair up during a hot summer day anymore. They are the ultimate chic accessories you will wish to incorporate into your look. With celebrities like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner sporting it with their street-style look, you certainly don't want to be left behind.


Vests are going to be one of the biggest trends of 2022 and it's going to be everywhere. Waistcoats empower a refined and polished look that is perfect for any season. Let the 90s divas Julia Roberts and Kate Moss give you insights.

Nail your workwear style with confidence by wearing it alone or putting it over a blouse or a shirt. This is your perfect workwear essential to own.


Skirt suits will remind you of Princess Diana and Naomi Campbell of the 90s who paired them elegantly with waist belts and knee-high stockings. The skirt suiting is back in business and it's shorter and hotter than ever.

While Chanel presented a tweed skirt suit on the runway, Versace opted for a leather one just to name a few. Designers, as well as celebrities, can't get enough of the revamped skirt suit.


One of the most exciting appearances on the runway was a streamlined tailored maxi. Sensual dressing at its best. Body-shaping silhouettes in a tailored and polished style looked like a dream.

Maxi isn't just street style anymore, it belongs on the runway couture. This one is a must-have.


Here comes the great fashion debate of denim-on-denim styles. The 90s icons like Brad Pitt and Heidi Klum gave this style the merit it deserves. Though some may not agree with it!

While pairing denim with denim can be tricky, if you get it right trust me people will write songs about it. It's an underrated look that deserves to be in your wardrobe.


If you are bored of your jeans and skirts, the stretchy and form-fitting biker shorts. Yes, biker shorts are out of the gyms and pools and have landed straight into the runway and street style.

You can pair it with a sweatshirt for a casual day or add a cropped blouse for a brunch date. It can be casual, chic, or seductive as you want it to be.

PS - Princess Diana is the ultimate biker shorts queen.


Every 90s teenager would have swooned over a tube top in music videos or tv shows. Nostalgic right? The fashion world has given in nostalgia and brought back the strapless tube tops and dresses with a bang.

Luxury brands like Alexander McQueen and Blumarine created minimalist looks with tube dresses that looked chic and elegant.


If you are bored of skinny jeans, give some breath of fresh air to your skin with these straight-leg jeans. They are our personal favorite as they offer limitless styling potential. Go effortless with these by pairing them with a solid tee, blazer, and a comfortable pair of comfortable sneakers or a pair of suede.


Either you love it or you hate it, there is nothing in between. Chokers lie in the same category. If you loved this 90s trend and are excited to explore your inner punk style, now is the time.

From plush velvet chokers seen at Schiaparelli to chain chokers at Valentino, fashion houses have brought back this statement accessory.


Who can forget Kate Moss' iconic sheer dress of 1993? It has surely written its name in the history of fashion, but the moment isn't over yet. Sheer dresses have undoubtedly been one of the buzziest fashion trends of 2022.

Rihanna redefined maternity clothing in a black sheer Dior lingerie gown looking like an absolute diva.


Are leather jackets still in fashion? Yes, they were and they are. It's a minimalist lovers' essential wardrobe staple for a super cool look. Keeping the 90s insight, leather jackets today are available in different silhouettes, from fitted and cropped to baggy and oversized.

Try a super cropped version for a biker girl style or layer it with an evening dress for a posh look.


Nothing defines a minimalist look better than an oversized and reworked button-down shirt. They aren't just for business meetings and the workplace anymore.

So don't let it lie at the back of your closet over the weekend.

Just like a crisp solid white shirt, button-down shirts are a classic and timeless fashion.
