The ’90s Trends We’re Bringing Back
If you’ve ever seen, well, any college-themed flick that came out in the ’90s, you’ll know uniforms and varsity-inspired looks were a big deal in the ’90s. Fast forward to 2021, we’re reviving the look with MESHKI varsity-inspired graphics instead. Cosy up in our logo sweatshirts, teamed with denim and loungewear.
From mini dresses to crop tops, the cami reigned supreme. Just ask Naomi Campbell. Or Jennifer Aniston. Or literally anyone else from the ’90s. With thin straps and low scoop necklines, it was all about showing a little skin — and then some. Suddenly, we’re loving the cami all over again with mom jeans, tube socks and white sneakers. Or heels, for something dressier. Bonus points for butterfly accents.
We’re going to come right out and say it: denim made the ’90s. Seriously, think about it: mom jeans, oversized jackets, overalls, boyfriend shorts and mini skirts. Where would the ’90s be without them? If it was made of denim, we were into it — which is exactly how we feel today. We’ve given the iconic ’90s denim styles an upgrade with ultra flattering, body perfecting cuts.
The halter was THE shape of the ’90s. It had a knack for giving every outfit instant cool factor, whether it was a halter crop paired with a strappy silk midi skirt or wide-leg jeans, or a sexy halter midi dress. It’s definitely a trend we’re adding back in our wardrobes. Our pick? The halter low-back figure-hugging dress. So bomb.
Cassette collection filled with hip hop? Maybe streetwear is more your thing. Brands like Fubu and Champion blew up in the ’90s, and now we’re seeing a major resurgence of comfy sportswear. We’re talking slouchy joggers, sweatshirts and sweat shorts. Yep, just like in the ’90s, comfort is queen.
When we say anything, we really mean anything. Tank tops, button-ups, t-shirts, jackets — even dress and skirt hemlines — were super cropped back in the day. Working cropped pieces into today’s look is one of the easiest ways to throw it back to the ’90s — and get the most out of your high-waisted wardrobe items while you’re at it.
And here come the ’90s supermodels. Lace was one of their favourite fabrics, usually paired back with leather, silky numbers and a rockstar casually hooked on their arm. We love to give lace this same sexy treatment, with plunging necklines, mini hemlines and stretchy crepe fabrics.
Yeah, you won’t find these cardigans in nanna’s wardrobe. Maybe Liv Tyler’s instead? We’re talking figure-hugging knits, ribbed textures, cropped shapes and buttons for… unbuttoning. It’s our ’20s spin on the iconic fluffy cropped knits that Liv made famous, and just like her, we’re wearing ours with a flippy mini skirt.
