I am so in love with the 90’s minimalist trend and finally it has started to filter down into the high street collections. Usually my shopping trips to achieve this look are a mixture of charity shop trawls and a number of disappointing eBay gambles. Now the high street has taken notice and is channeling this chic ad understated trend the look is ready to wear and has had a colour palette update too. Not to mention no dodgy smells or moth holes.
Designers like Alexander Wang have created labels synonymous with 90’s nostalgia and now the trend is emerging from the spring/summer 2014 runway shows and key spring/summer 2013 magazine editorials
You have to recognize the late 90’s silhouette in order to nail this trend. Fabrics skim the body and touch skin in all the right places. tops are tight bottoms are a loose casual fit.
I think this look of basic silhouettes and styling works best with a slimmer silhouette on a younger lady – mid-riffs at the ready.
For style reference look to tastemakers such as supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Winona Ryder. Many wore designs from Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren, the ready-to-wear giants who were redefining modern sportswear during the decade.
