When the 90’s fashion first started to come back into style, I have to say I was initially dreading it. When it first came to mind, I thought of the flatform sneakers (I still can’t get on board with even the most modern versions), thin brows, and chunky highlights that I hated back then. But as the fashion has evolved a bit and it’s had a chance to be more subtle the second time around, it has definitely grown on me. I like my 90’s style nowadays to remain modern but still have those touches of grunge that we are all so familiar with. 90’s vibes are ever present in my wardrobe with vampy lip colors, messy hair, and choker galore.
Leather leggings have been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. I swear I could go the whole Fall and Winter (who am I kidding? I mean the entire year) without wearing real pants. Leggings are my go-to when I don’t know what to wear because they’re so easy to dress up or dress down and, the most obvious reason of all, they feel like pajamas. While leather leggings are slightly less comfortable than traditional jersey cotton leggings, they still have a leg up on normal pants in terms of comfort. The added layer of texture gives a stylish touch that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to achieve with normal leggings or pants.
In terms of accessories, I wanted to keep them really edgy to enhance the overall feeling of the look. I got this wide velvet choker at Claires’ (it doesn’t get much more ’90’s than that) and it has been even more wearable than I thought it would be. The black color is obviously incredibly versatile, especially for the Fall and Winter, and it makes jeans and a t-shirt look instantly stylish. I have worn these lace-up heels into the ground and I am pretty positive that about 80% of you reading this own this exact pair. They were constantly sold out when they were first released by Zara and they’ve been emulated countless times since then. I’ve had them for about 5 years now and they just won’t go out of style! You wouldn’t think that a lace-up pair of booties would be an instant classic but seriously – they’re one of my ultimate favorite purchases ever.
