Want to channel a 90’s look in an updated way? There are so many fun trends to incorporate into your style nowadays, below you will find a guide on how to rock the three most essential items to give you a distinctly 90’s vibe while also looking as on trend as possible.
One key look from the 90s that you can easily translate into your current wardrobe is the midriff baring, crop top. In fact, these were pretty much a staple for famous folks like Alicia Silverstone and Britney Spears during this period, as well as the average girl about town too. Luckily midriffs are the rage once more – whether you pair them with overalls like I did or some fun jeans or joggers.
Luckily, these are easy to come across in a variety of stores and styles, or if you are feeling particularly creative, you can even make one of your own out of an old top or T-shirt like they do in the video below.
Also, if you would prefer to keep your middle covered, why not use a crop top as part of a layered look that will still have those 90’s vibes, but without pushing you out of your comfort zone?
A simple way to 90s up your outfit is to choose the right type of accessories for the era. In particular, chokers are a great option here as they are readily available from many different fashion stores and sites, and can be teamed with everything from a plain white fitted t-shirt to a grunge dress to give you the right look.
Alternatively, if you look back on any photos from the 90s you will see the vast influence that the hip-hop scene had on the clothes then, and in particular the use of sunglasses to accessorize an outfit.
Of course, not just any sunnies will do, and to get an authentic look you need to search around for something like these sunglasses that not only have the right shape but the correct proportions as well. In fact, for the most authentic look as possible search out sunglass manufacturers that offer vintage lines to ensure your 90s references are spot on and set off your outfit correctly.
Lastly, concerning accessories, if you are looking for a shoe that will meet your 90’s needs, then the 9 hole DM in black is the right choice. Do you remember Doc Martens? Not only are these babies flat and so hugely practical, but they can be paired with jeans or dresses for the perfect 90s look. Just allow yourself a few weeks to break them in before you add them to your wardrobe rotation.
Last of all when it comes to the 90’s, sportswear is a huge trend that can work well for many people. Essential items here include bomber style jackets, wide leg tracks pants, and even longline sweatshirts. Which not only look great but are incredibly comfortable to wear as well, making this particular 90s trend one that we can expect to hang around for a while!
