When it comes to fashion – like history – everything has a tendency to repeat itself. This includes decades. And, right now, we’re seeing a resurgence of nineties-inspired wears. ‘90s fashion was filled with statement-making pieces, like the slip dress, the cropped sweater, and the fashion set’s favorite Doc Martens.
Here are some of our favorite trends from the era, all of which can easily be incorporated into your current 2015 wardrobe.
Sweaters don’t always have to be oversized and cozy. Cher Horowitz emphasized this in Clueless, and Jessica Alba shows us how to make it work today. Nervous about showing your tummy? Simply opt for a higher waist on the bottom.
Few things are sexier than a straight-to-the-bedroom slip dress. Jennifer Aniston and Kate Moss made this look iconic in the ‘90s, and its staying power was proven by Zoe Kravitz.
Okay, perhaps Destiny’s Child’s denim look was a bit over-the-top, but it didn’t hamper our love of overalls in any way. Follow Emma Watson’s lead and rock this casual look for a weekend activity.
Liv Tyler loved them then, and Kristen Stewart loves them now. Wear these clunkers with skinny jeans, or ripped tights for an uber-punk vibe.
Versace made mini-skirts an absolute must-have in the ‘90s, and years later, the style on J.Lo has us once again wondering, “she’s how old?!”
Marc Jacobs’ grunge collection for Perry Ellis may have lost him his job at the time, but it made quite the impression. Claire Danes in My So Called Life was an icon for angsty teenagers everywhere during the ’90s, whereas Katie Holmes’ flannel is the perfect relaxed weekend look for today.
