A closed door is, more often than not, a mystery to all of us. When that door has an arch and a keystone, intertwining to form a coherent symplexis, it becomes a mystical and wondrous gate, behind which imagination can run wild! So, open it. If you dare.

90's Trends That Have Made a Comeback

If you sneak a peek onto the catwalks of the latest fashion shows, and peruse though the wardrobes of some of our beloved Insta stars, you’ll easily find at least several style items that traveled in time from the infamous ‘90s. They are youthful, daring, rebellious and glam, and they are sure as hell here to stay!

Looking for something old and something new? For fashionistas among you who crave to add a retro touch to their collection, the following pieces and trends are your most likely candidates for a modern look inspired by the timeless touch of this vivid decade!

Chokers With A Classy Twist

Whatever stirred up the style waters in the past decades did not manage to root out the one and only, the lovely, endlessly sexy and slightly intimidating – the choker. However, unlike the original version that was predominantly intended for the very rock ‘n’ roll Avril Lavigne fan, mixed with a black eyeliner, now we’re looking at collections of immense beauty suitable even for an evening look.

Take, for instance, Oscar La Renta and his fall collection of incredibly beautiful evening pieces combining black, red, lime outfits and glam makeup, with the perfect finishing touch of a sparkly choker. But you can still embellish your jewellery box with the good old black, simple and velvety choker of your choice.

The Immortal Platform Shoe

Among so many ballet flats and high heels, the platform shoe has been slightly forgotten until this very year. The sheer volume of varieties will dazzle and make you dizzy, as they come in colours of every spectrum, and materials your feet can only dream of.

Balmain’s purple daze of animal-print or the evenly-distributed high soles of glitzy gold and flashy silver are just some examples of this shoe’s revival. There are also the pinup-inspired Dolce & Gabbana polka dots and snazzy reds, while the delicate bohemia remains dominant in Max Mara’s ethnic browns and florals.

Simple And Sleek With Satin

It looks and feels like lingerie, yet it contains all the high-style glory of the evening gown, worn effortlessly with that “what do I care” attitude to either a dinner party, or just your all-night-long rave paired with an oversized denim jacket.

Look up to Kate Moss to tackle her ever-so-spotless slip on satin look, and you’ll be able to pull anything off after you manage to handle that one. Don’t be fooled by its simplicity – it speaks volumes of Kate’s innovative, daring spirit, and so it will of yours.

When in doubt, go goth

Once upon a time, it was the alternative style of the loudest of rebels, and Amy Lee fans world-wide. Now it has become a powerful echo, a beautiful ghost that haunts even the pickiest of designers (think Miuccia Prada) of the fashion universe to become the staple of street looks everywhere.

Goth has once again made its presence known in every bit of beauty there is – from the choker, to the satin dress. But one piece is still the quintessence of all things goth, one item to rule them all. It’s the enchanting gothic corset with its lilacs, blacks and cobweb patterns that will breathe life into your ‘90s collection no matter the occasion.

Keep It Short With Crop Tops

Show some skin with the comfy crop tops, designed for you to enjoy the summer breeze and break the spell of the seemingly conservative high-waisted jeans. The beauty of crop tops is in their endless versatility and simplicity.

You can pair them with your boho skirt, wear the off-shoulder, embellish them with quotes and neon shades, or simply mix them with your favourite pair of fancy pants. Alexander Wang played with the trend by adding an edgy cropped shirt element to his feminine combos with miniskirts and a minimal make-up free look.

Summer Free Styles

If summer had synonyms this season, it would be light, minimal and free. I'm in love with these minimal,  A-line styles. We no longer see them solely on the catwalks but highstreet stores have made it accessible, affordable and super stylish.
 
What are your favourite looks this season?
