Trend Report | The Nineties
For SS16, The Nineties become the new 90s. Of course you’ll flirt with other decades, clever girls keep their options open but the message is clear: old school RULES OK!
While there’s always room in the wardrobe for a little grunge, the new Nineties trend is more Calvin Klein fresh than Cobain’s unkempt. Think Cool Britannia when everything from models and bands to footballers and artists were given superstar status.
The model look calls for a ban on makeup, color and fuss. A nude and blush palette is matched only with monochrome and works best for soft tailoring and the purest of staples. A flash of real flesh gives the naked trend a cool sex appeal; think bare shoulders, exposed necks and cute midriffs. Extra points if you go for sharp asymmetric lines as seen on the catwalk at Jacquemus OR get your girl squad in tonal wispy slip dresses, awkward shoes and 15 dens for the ultimate after party look.
On the streets the new wave 90s pack are styling it with a sporty overtone. Whether taking inspiration from DKNY and adding kicks to office layers or channeling Sporty Spice; it’s all about track jackets, light ribs and bold color blocks mixed with starch white.
