90s Fashion Trends That Are Back for SS20

There’s one era that we, as a society, just can’t seem to shake.

From cheesy pop songs to iconic Disney films, scrunchies to platform shoes, the nineties decade is enjoying yet another revival.

And do you know what this means? Nineties-inspired fashion is no exception.

In fact, read on for the 3 of our favourite trends growing up that have returned for Spring/Summer 2020.

Well, what can we say, it’s the “Circle of Life”? (Sorry.)

1. Double Denim

First things first, are you even a millennial if you haven’t dabbled in the double denim trend of the nineties?

Well, we’ve got some good news for you — now generation Z can have a go, too.

Double denim was all the rage at SS20 shows by Celine and Givenchy.

However, there’s one very important rule when it comes to this trend: mix up your denim styles and colours to add variety and interest to a singular outfit.

For instance, pair these black Reiss Stretch Skinny Jeans with this blue Oasis Button-Up Shirt with Converse trainers and a choker for a playful, retro look.



2. Jeans and a Nice (Crop) Top

Remember those times as a teen where “jeans and a nice top” was your go-to outfit for both smart and casual occasions? Especially if the top was cropped above the hip?

Well, those times are back in full force thanks to the designers that showcased this trend on their SS20 runways. (We’re talking about Y/Project, Balmain and Maryam Nassir Zadeh, to name a few.)

And if the jeans are flared? Even better!

To create a minimalistic yet stylish aesthetic that the nineties are known for, choose a laid-back crop top design, such as this New Look Short-Sleeved Crop Top. Then team it with figure-hugging flared denim, like these Armani Flared Denim Jeans

Now, that’s what we call effortless chic.



3. Slip Dresses

Lastly, slip dresses reigned supreme in the nineties.

As a result, they have made their way back on the style-sphere thanks to Instagram influencers and fashionistas alike.

We even saw them on the SS20 catwalks of Arnotts, Bevza and Jonathan Simkhai!

And the great thing about slip dresses is that they’re incredibly versatile. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion.

For instance, this Mani Strappy Slip Dress can be combined with chunky white trainers and a small backpack for everyday wear.

Alternatively, you can rock this Sparkle & Fade V-Neck Glitter Slip Dress with barely-there block-heeled sandals and a metallic clutch for a night out on the town.

Either way, you’ll be summer (and the nineties) personified.



Embracing the Nostalgia of Nineties Fashion Trends

Whether you’re a nineties baby or not, you can’t help but look back at this era and smile.

It brought us fun, laughter and unique fashion.

And it’s nice having a slice of it return during these troubled times. Right?
