It’s no question the ’90s were one of fashion’s most epic decades. Grunge style perfected by Winona Ryder, the preppy look popularized from Clueless, and Kate Moss’s legendary eclectic, minimalistic style (to name a few) all defined what it meant to be a “heroin chic” woman, who dressed for no one but herself. There are so many unforgettable pieces that are still relevant today, and will be for another 30+ years. Slip dresses? Leather jackets? Animal print? All yes. See below which ’90s trends I’m currently loving for Spring/Summer 2021 and how I’m styling them.
Pleated Mini Skirt
Mini skirts are always in, but the pleated style is back better than ever. It’s such a cute, preppy look that adds interest to an outfit without being too much. Thanks, Cher, for the inspo.
Now that going-out is a thing again, elevate your usual bodysuit-and-jeans ensemble with a sheer long-sleeve and a flirty black bralette underneath. I love the Skims one for this.
Spring is undoubtedly cardigan season. While the weather still calls for layering, a thin sweater will give you that extra warmth without being too bulky. A lightweight cardigan, like the one I’m wearing, looks so cute thrown on over a tank, with a mini skirt or jeans, for an effortless, cool-girl look.
Ones that hit right below the knee. Right now, the spring weather is still unpredictable. Pair heeled boots with a dress and jacket for the perfect transitional outfit. As it warms up, style them with a crop top and mini skirt for a night-out.
Cool, chic, and timeless, you’ll want to fit it into all your everyday outfits. I’ve been lusting over Prada’s—specifically this mini-bag. For spring/summer, switch your black bag for a lighter neutral or fun pastel.
