The 90’s are baaaack!

Like it or not the 90’s are back in full swing this Fall. Just take a stroll through any of the department stores and you’ll see an onslaught of crushed velvet, florals on dark grounds, plaid, ripped bootcut jeans and a touch of grunge.

I know – at first glance it’s not the most exciting decade to make a comeback but there are ways to incorporate these trends into your wardrobe in a way that’s modern, up to date and kinda fun.

Modern Victorian

Defined by its excessive use of ruffles, high necklines, fine details, delicate fabrics and florals, the Victorian trend may seem intimidating and difficult to style at first, but pair an intricate, romantic shirt with a basic pair of jeans and simple heels and you'll be royally rocking the trend.

Embellished Sleeves & Shoes

Plain old sleeves are out - bell, extra long, and sleeves covered in detail work are in! This is a really fun look and it's pretty easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe and bring you into Fall. If this looks makes you feel too voluminous on top, opt for slimmer proportions, like skinny jeans, on the bottom.  

This season's obsession with extravagant detail has also been carried over to shoes - think booties with all over sequins, embroidery and stars. If you go wild with your shoes just keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the shoes make the statement.

Red Hot

You’ll see an abundance of red this season.  Considered one of the most romantic and powerful colors, it's all over clothing, accessories, and makeup.  For those who prefer neutrals, incorporating red accessories and makeup into your looks is a smart way to add a pop of color while still dressing on-trend. 

Crushing It

Chances are you’ve noticed a crazy amount of crushed velvet on the racks.  Pants, shirts, jackets, shoes, and even socks and undergarments have been crushed-velvetized.  The textile is nearly impossible to avoid, so go ahead and embrace it - just a little. By adding crushed velvet into your outfits through items like clutches and booties, you can participate in this 90's resurgence without feeling like you’re back in high school.
