25 Apr The Nineties Revival
Every season fashion recycles another era that we can’t forget – even if we wanted to. So, once again, our parents can turn to us and say ‘I used to wear that when I was younger’. But, this season, fashion has looked a closer to the millennials home and we’re feeling rather nostalgic.
This summer hosts the return of the 90’s and it’s comeback is stronger than ever, swooping across fashion and music (see: Iggy Azeala’s Clueless inspired music video and Coachella’s 2014 festival style). With so many iconic pieces returning
this season, which trend will you embrace?
Plunge back into your pastel pool this season because they’re back – again. Every summer we see a revival of all colours candy and this summer is no different. So, if you want make some investment buys, make them pastel. And if you’re feeling risky you could jump into a pair of jelly shoes that most of us girls used to wear a kids (even if they might have been a shoe to ‘throw a tantrum about’ as a friend of mine argued) because shops such as Topshop and River Island are stocked up ready for your summer purchase. If not, a pair of poolslides or platforms could be a slightly safer choice.
Unless you’re the lovechild of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain you’re never going to epitomise grunge. However, recent developments of trends mean we can give it a good go. This trend homes the return of dirty denim, statement tees, layering and unexpected florals to help you embrace your teenage-angst. Don’t only turn to grunge music icons of the 90’s but film beauties Drew Barrymore and Winona Ryder for the perfect 90’s inspiration.
