90S FASHION TRENDS

Welcome to the ultimate throwback journey as we delve into the world of 90s fashion trends. From grunge and minimalism to girl-next-door and hip-hop influences, this decade left a lasting impact on the fashion landscape. In this article, we'll guide you through the popular fashion trends in the 90s, that are making a comeback and how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe to bring back the cool factor.

90S FASHION: ICONIC STYLES AND MUST-HAVE TRENDS

The 90s was a decade of sartorial experimentation, where fashion took on a range of bold and distinct styles. Let's explore some of the top fashion trends of the 90s that defined the era.

Grunge Fashion: Grunge was a subculture that emerged in the 90s, characterized by its rebellious and nonchalant aesthetic. Think ripped denim, flannel shirts, combat boots, and band t-shirts. This anti-establishment style became an emblem of counterculture, embraced by music icons such as Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.

Minimalism: On the other end of the spectrum, minimalism took center stage in the 90s fashion scene. Clean lines, neutral colors, and understated elegance were the hallmarks of this trend. Think slip dresses, oversized blazers, and simple, monochromatic outfits. Designers like Calvin Klein and Jil Sander epitomized the minimalist aesthetic that still influences contemporary fashion.

Logomania: The 90s also witnessed the rise of logomania, a trend characterized by the prominent display of brand logos. From designer labels like Gucci and Fendi to sportswear giants like Nike and Adidas, logos were emblazoned on clothing, accessories, and even shoes. Logomania became a status symbol and a way to showcase brand loyalty. Crop Tops and Low-Rise Jeans: This iconic combination became a staple of 90s fashion. Crop tops were worn with low-rise jeans, creating a flattering silhouette that emphasized the waistline. This trend was seen on celebrities, supermodels, and pop icons, solidifying its place in fashion history.

Must-Have Accessories: No 90s look would be complete without the essential accessories. Chokers, butterfly hair clips, bucket hats, and platform shoes were all the rage. These statement-making pieces added a touch of attitude and individuality to any outfit.

BRING BACK THE COOL: TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE BEST 90S FASHION TRENDS

● Kitten Heels: Relive the Elegance

The kitten heel craze is upon us, and we're ready to embrace its timeless elegance. Once a '90s relic primarily associated with workplace attire and power suits, kitten heels have undergone a rebranding and are now a sought-after vintage style. These low-heeled shoes strike the perfect balance between comfort and sophistication, making them suitable for both casual and formal occasions. Whether you opt for a slingback style or an open-toed design, you'll find a pair of kitten heels that seamlessly fits into your wardrobe. Elevate your shoe game with the elegant and chic kitten heels by Italian brand BENEDETTA BOROLI, available on the DOORS NYC website.
