Back to the 90s: How to revisit the trend

The 90s revival is in full swing and looking better than ever

Promotional Feature

Turn back the clock 25 years to the heady days of the 1990s, a decade full of fun and fashion and no, we’re not talking shell suits and oversized hoodies – this trend is far prettier than that!

Get the cool 90s vibe with mismatched vintage-style looks. One of Autumn/Winter 16’s hottest signature pieces is the retro bomber, with a ditsy floral print adding a fresh twist. Layering is a strong theme – a shirt tied around your waist not only gives definition but will also keep your look seriously on-point. Black Floral Print Bomber Jacket, £38, Evans

Contrast is key: think chunky boots with flippy dresses, and mesh tops layered over clashing tees. It’s a look that suits all body shapes, as designs are fluid and unstructured. Halter-neck tops are also a top style and oh-so-flattering, while handkerchief hemlines add interest to the overall shape. And check shirts are a given – natch. Navy Short Sleeve Check Shirt, £24, Evans

Accessorise with over-sized hoop earrings and a simple choker. Or opt for a printed neckerchief, which is the accessory set to replace last season’s trend for statement necklaces. Simply finish your look with a low-slung bun and slip on a blue denim jacket for a chic 90s-inspired look. Denim Jacket, £30 Evans

No new season wardrobe is complete without a little black pinafore and nothing beats soft denim – it’s a firm favourite with the street stylers. Whether you choose to wear this season’s of-the-moment dress with a close-fitting body or dress it down with a slouchy tee and ankle boots for an off-duty weekend look, you’ll get loads of wear out of it this season – and beyond. It’s one of those easy-to-fling-on at a moment’s notice pieces that every wardrobe needs more of! Black Pinafore Dress £40, Evans
