Fashion loves to repeat! Maybe with a bit of a difference, but making a style statement with a repeated sense of clothing is what we can say this decade was all about. Our obsession and nostalgia for the decade that perfected high-waist denim and leather jackets is no surprise. And thank goodness that the 90's fashion is back! If you are a millennial in your late 20s and early 30s, you would surely believe that we finally live in a time where fashion trends have come back and we can all relate to them! 90's fashion puts comfort first and then everything else. This could be another reason that no matter what, mom jeans, basic white tee and tiny sunglasses have reigned the fashion statement lately. And for a dinner date, thigh-high slit velvet is chic. If you are a true fashion observant, you would definitely agree that from 2010 all we saw was 90's fashion in function. In a significant way, to say the least! As we approach the end of another decade, let us look at the top six clothing and other style statements that redefined 90's fashion. 5 Easy Steps to Wear Woolen Caps Without Messing Up Your Hair.

Mom jeans seem like the favourite outfit for most of the fashion lovers. Back in the days when Princess Diana would step out in a loose top, some ill-fitted pale jeans and a belt (most of the time), the effect was instantaneous. Her look inspired women of the 90s and continues to rock the fashion industry of this decade as well. It is no surprise to see that from skin-fitted jeans, we girls fall in love with a pair of mom jeans. Thick vintage denim featuring a high waist perfectly accentuating your curves—who wouldn’t want that? You can pair them with both basic and statement pieces to get that effortless chic look.

Honestly, it appears like floral prints have been there forever! Flowers as adornment are as old as the hills. But when it comes to printed clothing, blossoms are said to be first seen on the Japanese kimonos. While we are unsure about when and how, one thing is certain that floral print will never go out of style. No summer look can ever be completed without a floral touch in it. Casual and comforting, from soft to vivacious, there are so many pretty floral prints out there at the moment, and we couldn’t be thankful enough! 7 Smart Tips to Consider When Finding the Right Shoes for Your Big Day.

Velvet was ‘the’ fabric of the 90s. The slinky styles were quite popular during the decade. And in 2018, we saw the material making a comeback for the party season. On-trend, Kendall Jenner and Angelina Jolie have shown up some impressive new ways to style up velvet. With affordable and high-end brands alike, dramatic midis and backless gown in jewel-tone velvet, this fabric made a major fashion comeback. Six Street Style Fashion Lessons From Kendall Jenner That Are Endearingly Slick.

The 90s inspired tiny sunglasses are all the rage in the 2018-19 look book. They are worn by the likes of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid, as well as many Instagram influencers. Although small sunglasses do not really serve the purpose of protecting your eyes from the harmful sunrays, unlike the round or square ones, they do make a classic style statement. They are actually fun accessorising options.

The once-maligned sweater is now cooler than ever! What initiated as a way to highlight the neck has now been evolved into a key piece for layering with both pieces of jewellery and other tops. Besides, the outfit is not only limited to be worn during the fall. If you remember the popular sitcom Friends (of course, you do!), the cast has shown various ways to style up turtle neck. Be it Ross, Monica or Rachel, the turtle neck was worn as both a sweater and top. And such variant materials are back in style.

Here again, let us give the most relatable example—Friends. Rachel, Phoebe and Monica have worn lace-up high heeled ankle boots in the show quite prominently. It made an elegant statement then and now it has made a comeback. And the best part of these shoes is that you can accessorise them with any outfit—jeans, midi dress, A-line dress, shorts, skirts, you name it.

We feel so blessed that the 90's fashion has made a comeback in such a marvellous way, and it is undoubtedly the next big thing. As fashion choices evolve while taking inspiration from the iconic styles in the past, we are looking forward to some more outfits in the coming decade where nostalgia remains the hottest trend.
