The Return of the 90’s

Recently we have been fixated on models like Cara Delevingne, Bella Hadid, and Issa Lish – all drop dead gorgeous, and not necessarily in the stereotypical way.

These models inspire me to dress differently, in a more unique way ?

Also recently, we have seen the clean and simple neutral trends.

These are great, they

  • will never go out of style
  • are easy to put together
  • look good 100% of the time

BUT for how long can we dress in monochrome? And how many times do we really want to play it safe?

This is when I crave for something different and exciting!

Living in NYC has really opened my eyes to many things, and fashion is on the top of my list. In New York you never really look weird or out of place and you are free to be yourself – it is actually encouraged. So it comes as no surprise that you see many inspiring street-style looks every single day.

Lately 90’s grunge style is making it’s way back and it is so refreshing. I see that period of time in fashion as experimental, nonjudgemental, and edgy. Nothing like the monochromatic looks that we have been putting together recently. These grunge looks have texture, allow for individuality, and are very unassuming. There is more room for experimenting and you can’t really go wrong.

With this 90’s type style, you can turn this look up or tone it down. You want to look like yourself, not like the clothes are wearing you or like you are wearing a costume – this look should be an extension of your personal style. This is why I mention turning the inspiration grunge look up or toning it down, because ultimately you want to make this look as if it is your style – not some head-to-toe copied look out of a magazine.
