90's Trends That Have Made a Comeback

90s trends that made a comeback result

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.

First look at stunning Kate Moss cover for Vogue June and Cara Delevingne cover for debut edition of Miss Vogue

Fashion lovers are in for a treat on 6th May as not only is the June issue of Vogue on the shelves, the brand new magazine Miss Vogue is being launched.

Kate Moss looks stunning on her latest Vogue UK cover, shot by photography legend Patrick Demarchelier. Kate has graced the cover of Vogue consistently since landing her first back in 1993, with this cover bringing her total to an astonishing 32! Showing off her signature long golden bedhead hair, 60's white nails, thick black eyeliner and summery yellow dress - Kate looks sexy, youthful and timelessly chic. I love the laid back summer vibe with the lilac flowers in the background and her relaxed pose, with Kate showing why she is still one of the world's top models after decades in the industry.

Inside the issue she stars in a gorgeous retro holiday inspired spread. In my favourite shot Kate wears pink hotpants and an embroidered vest top as she sits on a yacht. I think she looks beautiful and love the style inspiration from the 1960s.

I am so excited to get my hands on Vogue's new little sister Miss Vogue, which is the first ever British Vogue title aimed at a young, fashion-driven audience. The new addition to the UK Vogue line-up follows in the footsteps of the American publication Teen Vogue, which first launched in 2003. Featuring model of the moment Cara Delevingne on its cover seemed an obvious choice. Cara is the model everyone has been talking about, having recently walked for the most celebrated designers and shot a number of high profile campaigns. The choice to feature her on the inaugural cover shows how far she has come in the last year, proving that the sky is the limit for fashions fastest rising star. Cara has repeatedly been referred to as 'the new Kate Moss' so I it was a clever idea to feature them together in the same month. I think it is a fantastic idea to launch a fashion magazine for the younger generation with age appropriate articles, fashion and themes. It is a great way to get important issues across whilst also giving youngsters with a passion for the fashion industry a great way to learn and be inspired. The magazine will launch as a double package alongside the June issue of Vogue so this is one month not to miss out on!

I think they chose a great shot for the teen magazine cover, showing a smiling, natural looking Cara in grey and pale pink with a background of beautiful blossom. The photo-shoot inside has a preppy vibe and Cara delivers her best take on teen chic in striped shorts and a sleeveless top with the magazine's name emblazoned across the front, styled by Francesca Burns and shot by Angelo Pennetta.

In her editor's letter, Alexandra Shulman writes: 'We are delighted to have everybody's favourite model Cara Delevingne as our inaugural cover star. Her maverick sense of style and fun is Miss Vogue made physical.'

'Vogue magazine appeals to all ages but I wanted to produce an edition targeted at younger readers, created with your lifestyles in mind,' she added.
