90s: what made it and what didn’t
WHAT’S HOT NOW
The Crop Top
The midriffs are back out, even throughout winter. This basic crop tee from Topshop is perfect for all occasions and has us thinking of high waisted jeans ‘Friends’ style and short shorts to embrace your inner Spice Girl.
The casual style of the 90s is back in many varieties. One of which is the revival of the dungarees, sported by many stores in leather, check and denim. The short versions were perfect for summer festivals but this winter opt for the longer length. Wear these classic denim dungarees with a plain tee and converse.
WHAT’S NOT NOW
Think David Beckham and Leonardo DiCaprio, greasy hair parted in the middle long enough to reach those chiselled cheekbones. Boys today have started bringing back the undercut hair styles but were glad that the curtained fringe hasn’t made a revival.
The Wallet Chain
The days of having an easy access chain to your wallet are gone. With pockets full of hundreds of pounds worth of tech –iPhones, iPods, headphones- were glad that this trend has not made a comeback, not only for protection of our precious gizmos but because of how hideous they really were. Who today, wants to decorate their favourite skinny jeans with a metal chain?
