Nineties fashion was notoriously about comfort and function over style, and if you’re a millennial in your late 20s – early 30s, you’ll remember some of these trends from when you were younger. Whether you’re glad to see them back or not, the 90s brought us some of the coolest overalls and baggy shirts to be forever grateful for.
So, what has made its way back into mainstream fashion?
Overalls or dungarees
Although they never truly went away; just tucked into the back of our wardrobes; a pair of overalls, denim or not, are a classic in everyone’s fashion repertoire. Now worn with everything and anything underneath, from a colourful bandeau and plain white tee, to a baggy jumper and smart shirt, they’re the ideal piece of clothing for dressing up and dressing down.
From your favourite celebrity to the fitness influencer of today, scrunchies are now not exclusively worn by the kids on the block. Opt for the classic high ponytail or even decorate the outside of your bun with one; now in an array of colours, patterns and designs, the scrunchie is a must to bring back into your life.
Ah, the classic mum jean. Typically, high waisted and much loser fitting than their skinny jean sibling; nowadays if jeans don’t come up to the hem of your bra, are they really high enough? All joking aside, mum jeans are a favourite among many. They look cute with a baggy sweater draped over the top, or your favourite smart shirt or blouse tucked in with a belt for the ultimate, chic night out look.
Big, small, tiny and encrusted, hoop earrings are back baby! A little bit more timeless in design nowadays, whatever your personal taste, you’ll be able to find a pair that suit you. They can be used for a super casual look, or to dress up an outfit, and at jewellery brand F.Hinds, there are an array to choose from!
The smaller the better? No matter if they’re a mini backpack, fanny pack or handbag, everyone should have a mini bag to match their outfits. Not only are they small so easy to bring everywhere with you, they’re super practical too. You can fit your phone, card wallet and lippy in there and away you go.
It’s safe to say I’m over the moon the 90s fashion is back. Whether you decide to don some denim, grab yourself a pair of combat boots or rock a classic graphic tee, the 90s style suits everybody shape and size!
