We all know that fashion trends make a comeback, whether it’s on the racks of stores, runway shows or street style. About 20 years later, 90’s trends are relevant and considered to be trendy, yet again. Design during the 1990s delivered an adolescent development and offered joyful styles that fiddled with rebellion. Grunge and minimalistic styles were the key trends of the decade along with hip-hop and provocative school girl fashion. Designers like Calvin Klien, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Mcqueen, to name a few, are responsible for creating an era that was inspired by grunge looks and Kate Moss’ “too cool to care” style.
Some of the trends in the decade include flared jeans, overalls, slip dress, kitten heels, big hoops and chokers. In a lot of the editorials today, we can notice the reemergence of these styles. It is not about making sure your style is on point, but being comfortable and utilising clothing as a way to express yourself.
Fashion moved to providing functional garments, as compared to the 1980’s when it was all about volume whether it was padded shoulders, puffed jackets, big hair and an obsession with designer wear, style in the early 1990s was decidedly low maintenance.
The restoration is not just limited to clothing. Nineties supermodels are again owning the runways, from Naomi Campbell shutting Saint Laurent spring 2020 last September to Christy Turlington strolling Marc Jacobs' Fall 2019 show. On the other hand, the growth of hip hop music has highly influenced the fashion industry. Many designers draw inspiration from artists and music that was developed in the 90’s.
Even today, simplicity in garments has been appreciated and made a comeback and we are convinced, that it is here to stay!
