How to incorporate 90s style into your wardrobe like a true fashionista – it’s a question we all ask ourselves time to time. The experts say that fashion is a cycle. What was once popular will come back in the spotlight eventually. For the past few years, we’ve seen 90s style make a comeback. Chokers, overalls, band t-shirts, etc. It’s great that these trends are coming back, but sometimes they can be hard to style. Don’t fret though. We’re going to turn to the fashionistas of the world to learn how to style these 90s trends.
Don’t Overdo It
Choose one 90s piece to incorporate into your look. The 90s were a fashion gem, but that doesn’t mean you need to style every 90s trend into one look. If you chose to style various 90s trends at once, you’re honestly going to look like a hot mess. If you look closely at the street style pictures below, you’ll see that these fashionistas focused on one trend each. Slip dress, crop top, and overalls. These ladies show that it’s better to choose one key 90s piece so it will stand out amongst the crowd.
It’s All About Balance
Style a trendy 90s piece with modern accessories and other current items. This can piggyback off tip 1, but I believe it deserves its own. When you style a vintage (or faux vintage) 90s piece with a modern piece, it creates a well-balanced look. Showing that you’re able to mix different pieces is all that being a fashionista is about. Styling velvet, mom jeans, and flannels with contemporary pieces will give you the ultimate cool-girl look. Look at the fashion stars below.
Start small and work yourself up. Sometimes it can be intimidating to go back in time and pick a trend to wear today. With that being said if this sounds like you, start small. What I mean by small is start with accessories. There are plenty of ways to incorporate 90s style into your wardrobe just with accessories. Once you feel comfortable enough wearing some of these 90s style accessories, you can worm your way into clothing. Think of chokers, scrunchies, and combat boots. Look at the photos below for some 90s accessory inspiration!
Confidence Is Key
If you’re going to wear the 90s trend, then wear them with confidence. One of the most significant issues is that when we choose to wear a trend, sometimes we don’t wear it with confidence. This is never going to work, especially with the 90s trend. The 90s was all about cool girl confidence. If you’re going to wear windbreakers, plaid sets, or wide leg pants, then you better believe in yourself. Once again like a true fashionista find the pieces that are right for you and your lifestyle. Incorporating 90s style is all about making sure that the pieces are relevant to your day to day lives. ‘
Stay On Trend
Make sure you are choosing the good 90s style to wear. It’s not shocking that during every decade there were some questionable fashion decisions. The 90s is no exception to that. As much as we love 90s fashion, we tend to forget some of the ugly: mega midriffs, Buffalo boots, and super low cut are all trends that should probably stay in the 90s. Before diving into 90s style make sure what you’re looking at is on trend. Crushed velvet, grunge, and the preppy look are all acceptable styles. Look at the ladies below. They’re rocking these good trends.
