This set was inspired by 90s Gwyneth and is therefore perfect

Perhaps it's to do with revisiting old TV shows and movies such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, She's All That and FRIENDS, but this lockdown has got me obsessed with all things late 90s and early 00s. Is it just me, or was Rachel (the early years) just sartorial perfection?

And it looks like fashion label Bernadette agrees with me, judging by their new set which is an ode to 1998 Gwyneth Paltrow. The brand, known for its silk vintage-inspired floral dresses, has just launched an emerald green midi skirt and matching shirt set.

It is directly inspired by the outfit Gwyneth wore in Great Expectations, in which she starred opposite Ethan Hawke and is basically all that was good and pure about late 90s fashion.

The shirt strategically buttoned at the breasts so it can reveal just a hint of tummy, and the flattering skirt that falls just above the ankle.

Wear it now with plaftorm thong sandals (The Row has a great pair, but if you're on a budget, look to Arket or Zara), because you might as well go all out.

At the moment the shirt is sold out on FORWARD, however the set will soon be sold in Harrods, so watch this space.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
