Clueless, Friends and Saved by the Bell – all nostalgia for a kid growing up in the 90s. Cher’s plaid skirt suits, Carrie’s mules, Rachel’s haircut – all iconic moments of a not so bygone era.
Yes, love and fond memories, but did we expect to revisit it in the fashion world where let’s face it, trends such as skirt-over-trousers, bubble backpacks and bucket hats were questionable. Thankfully some of these didn’t make a comeback but once the initial fear had subsided was a 90s revival really all that bad?!
This year has already seen some of its key trends dominate again on the catwalk and the high street. Whether or not you deem looks such as scrunchies and tie dyes, dungarees and mom jeans, mules and sport flatforms as high contenders for Room 101, be open to the possibility that with a modern twist it could win your heart all over again. The 90s is here to stay…for now!
