Hello lovers! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week or so but I’ve been moving house. We’ve moved from Melbourne city to Geelong near the surf coast. It’s a beautiful sea-change but holy crap I hate moving! It really is amazing how much crapola two people can accumulate in a year.. Anyway, onto my latest fashion post! (Before and afters of the new place are on the way too)..:
90’s babies rejoice, the 90’s are back!! Technically I’m an eighties baby (woah, writing that makes me feel old) but growing up in the nineties I feel I can claim the nineties baby status, for fashion reason if nothing else!
No doubt you all will have noticed some of the most awesome fashion trend of the nineties making one hell of a comeback. So here is my wrap up of the best 90’s trends making a comeback and how to wear them without looking like the Fresh Prince of Belair.
For most this will bring flashbacks of Justin and Britney’s epic double denim at the 2001 American Music Awards but never fear, there is a more stylish way to rock this trend.
An example of what not to do. Sorry Brit.
My biggest tip is to avoid wearing the same colour denim head to toe as it will make you look like you’re wearing a denim jumpsuit. Mix it up with different washes on the top and bottom.
Break it up by wearing your go-to tee shirt under a denim jacket or unbuttoned denim shirt with your favourite jeans.
Play with styles! Flares and baggy boyfriend jeans have made a massive comeback which can look amazing with a tucked in denim shirt. If you want to feel a bit more feminine throw in a knee length denim pencil skirt. SO nineties!
Remember those plastic stretching ‘tattoo’ bands that you had in every single colour in the nineties? I never thought (and kind of hoped) I would see those babies again but, alas, they have made a huge comeback! Thankfully there are plenty of chic alternatives available today that can pay homage to this trend without having to pull out the old plastic tattoo band. Thank goodness!
My take on the grunge trend. (Excuse the hair, 4.30am start means I forget I own a brush..)
I am personally very happy to welcome back this trend! We can really attribute this trend back to the underground punk-rock era of the eighties music scene that inspired bands of the nineties like Nirvana, Hole, and Silverchair (pre-Daniel Johns haircut) which brought grunge music to the mainstream. Boots, flannel shirts, skinny jeans and messy hair; I would happily wear this trend every single day of the week.
One of my FAVE bloggers Chloe Ting rocking the grunge trend. She always looks incredible and this is one of my favourite looks of hers. Check out her blog! http://www.chloeting.com
Mary-Kate spam, because nobody does grunge as well as she does. And I’m obsessed with her.
