’90s STYLE REVIVAL
Let’s be honest; we were never ready to practice the gospel of N’SYNC and say, “Bye, bye, bye,” to the ’90s. Just like our favorite episodes of “Saved by the Bell,” nineties fashion is having a major rerun in 2017. From denim overalls to grunge-era combat boots, the decade of boy bands and teen rom-coms is having a comeback bigger than a Spice Girls reunion tour. Add these nostalgic trends to your shopping list—using a milky pen, of course.
From Cher Horwitz to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, every nineties “It Girl” had a pair of denim overalls. Designers have resurfaced the cool and comfy trend with variations from bootcut to fitted. Spacious pockets, once ideal for your Walkman, are now perfect for that new iPhone 8.

Chain, velvet, gold, and beaded – we’ve never met a choker we didn’t like. This ’90s trend adds the ultimate edge to any look. Balance out the punk vibe with polish by layering a dainty gold necklace over a chunky velvet choker.

Combat Boots with a Kick
You no longer need to have tickets to a Soundgarden concert to justify grungy footwear. Dust off those combat boots from 1994 or opt for a sleek pair lace-up booties like these climbing boots from Stuart Weitzman. We promise you’ll bring a new level of swank to garage band style.

From runways to red carpets, every celebrity looks like they’ve stepped out of Tiger Beat magazine. The reason? Round sunglasses. Beyoncé, Selena Gomez, and Gigi Hadid are just a few of the A-listers bringing back the bold eyewear trend.

Dare to go bare—midriff that is. Crop tops are alive and well, with options from fashionable retailers like Forever 21 to the luxury likes of designer Alexander Wang. Crop tops are versatile enough to take you from a daytime brunch to a chic evening date. Wear one confidently with your denim or dress it up with a circle skirt—the choice is yours.

Channel your inner G.I. Jane, drop down, and give us one reason why we shouldn’t rock a camo print? A camouflage utility jacket is a stylish way to embrace the nineties renaissance. Contrary to its name, a camo print jacket will make you stand out among the crowd.
