I am incredibly late to the 90’s trend party. It’s been gathering speed for about a year now and I dragged my feet for about 10 months of that year. The 90’s trend just wasn’t something I wanted to get involved in.
Scrunchies, velvet, chokers (oh no), halter-necks and strappy crop tops (oh no no). I was playing no part in any of that.
But slowly and surely, after seeing others take the trend in different ways (no one quite like Kim K has, thankfully!) I’ve added one or two things to my wardrobe that do have a distinctive 90’s/pre-2000’s vibe to them.
This dress was the first piece. Bought with the idea in mind that it would be rather cute on a sunny beach holiday somewhere – that was a scenario that never materialised and so I’ve moved on to the next best thing. Adapting it to the milder climate of the UK was an easy task simply by adding a white crew neck tshirt underneath, something that was particularly popular in the 90’s. The slightly square neck of the dress also adds to the feel.
As mentioned earlier I have a complete aversion to chokers. On some people they look great, on me they make my neck look even shorter than normal. A shorter chain necklace is my alternative to this. And lastly a pair of trainers to finish off the whole vaguely 90’s look.
How have you been adapting the new trends to your personal style? Let me know in the comments as I love hearing all about how to make things look your own. As always you can follow me on Instagram for lots for autumnal photos coming soon, and on Bloglovin for all the new content around here.
