Buy the Trend: 90s revival

18.4.14

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

Being born in the tail-end of the 80s means that the 90s was my era.  I don't know how I feel about fashion's 90s obsession at the moment; on the one hand I like seeing the influences creep in, on the other, I fear a full-on comeback of trends I don't look back on too fondly.  But in the interests of being well-rounded, I'm putting my own prejudices aside when I bring you this list.  I like a lot of it, but some is included for nostalgia's sake.  Hey you never know, I hear some people actually like jelly shoes at the moment....

BUY IT:
1.  There was a lot of denim in the 90s.  From what I remember, "stonewash" was the buzzword, so keep it light.  And blue.
2.  While we're on the subject of denim, skinny jeans didn't exist back in the day.  
3. Who remembers All Saints?  I now know that combat trousers were 'never ever' flattering on me, but the simple cami-style tops definitely have a place in my wardrobe.
4. Florals were a real feature of the 90s.  Keep it daisy print and you're good to go.

THE VERDICT:
So I like the ear cuffs.  I like the bodysuits (aesthetically, not practically.  I remember the awkwardness of them!) and I like the cami tops.  I think because 90s is the first fashion revival that I was alive to remember, it makes me hold my breath a little.  I guess I'm just anxious that it'll go a step too far.  Or has it already?  I'm definitely not ready for the scrunchies or jellies, although I'm on the fence about the return of the bomber jacket.  You know me, I just need someone looking really awesome in a 90s inspired outfit and I'll be all over that shizz.  Link me up and change my mind?! 

P.S.  Check out this list of meanings behind gummy bands.  I'm sure if my Mum knew what they really meant, I'd have never been allowed any!
