Like it or not (and yes, it makes us feel old too), 1990s fashions are back En Vogue. So to find out which looks are once again powering girls (and guys), we clued up with two vintage traders who have truly embraced the trend – Georgia Easton from House of Bricks and Beyond Retro Buyer Scarlett Eden.
Why is 1990s style currently enjoying a revival?
BR: The variation in looks from the ‘90s are great for different age groups and personalities. From Clueless to TLC – it’s easy to express yourself.
HoB: Whether it’s grunge, colourful Fresh Prince style prints, casual denims, Spice Girl metallics, platforms and fur or preppy Clueless vibes – ‘90s fashion covers a range of styles, which appeals to a variety of people. You can definitely have more fun with what you wear!
What styles and staple items define 1990s fashion?
BR: It’s all about Girl Power! Strong female icons emerged left right and centre during the 1990s. The Spice Girls, All Saints, En Vogue, Alisha’s Attic and Destiny’s Child each had their own style but all shared that sense of empowerment. The staple items are dungarees, Dr.Martens, Levi 501s, crop tops, tartan mini skirts, tie-dye T-shirts, chokers, knee-high socks, scrunchies and platform trainers.
