Fashion in the 1990s was all about tight pants, slip dresses, bright colours, and (let’s face it) a lot of bleached hair! All good things come back (OK, maybe not the hair), and styles from that decade are resonating with modern-day fashionistas. From higher-waisted bottoms and platform shoes to oversized floral patterns, these are six ’90s fashion pieces you need now—because they’re “cool beans”! —Jennifer Cox
Nordstrom’s High-Waist mom shorts ($29) feature some key ’90s style, from the cut-off distressed fringe on the hem to the higher, no-stretch waistline. These casual-cool shorts are 100 per cent cotton, and super soft and comfy to wear.
The Twill Crepe V-Neck Fit & Flare Dress, sold at RW&Co ($129), comes in solid colours and floral motifs, depending on your preference. This V-neck fit of this flare maxi dress offers a polished look that is sure to turn heads. We especially love the adorable cap sleeves too, which were a big trend in the 90s.
The Angelina GG Canvas Wedges from Gucci ($895, available at Luisa Via Roma) are putting chunky footwear back on the streets. These canvas-covered sandals are splashed in the brand’s iconic logo and have a canvas insole and leather lining, plus they are made in Italy.
Mavi’s White Victoria wide-leg jean ($128, available at Simons) are 90s-inspired wide-leg, high-rise Victoria jeans in a bright white hue and is a great basic for your spring and summer wardrobe. The details also make these very stylish, from the five pockets to the tone-on-tone seams.
The Half Sleeve Floral V Neck Shift Blouse at Azzlee ($20) is a pretty light and airy spring and summer blouse. Button up or button down – the brown buttons and big blue flowers are organic and a cute nod to 90s-style blouses.
The Roots Polartec collection has everything you need to achieve that effortless ’90s sporty chic look, with athleisure pieces that make easy spring layers. The Polartec collection offers the very best in performance fabrics with its soft, ultra-comfortable and durable fleece, made of 100 per cent recycled materials (read: PET plastic water bottles)!
