Fashion in the 1990s brought forth a youth movement and offered carefree styles which dabbled in rebellion – TheTrendSpotter
Today looks a lot like the 90s although in terms of style, even that wasn’t clear back then. While the 60s were characterized with miniskirts, the 70s with flares and the 80s with exaggerated tops…the 90s didn’t have a character. Styles were all over the place. Some of these trends include: flared jeans (of course long before skinny jeans were everyone’s favorite); crop tops; overalls/dungarees; slip dresses; chokers for an edgy element; hoop earrings and scrunchies (hairbands for the laymen).
I was born in the 90s so let’s face, we didn’t have a sense of fashion. We only wore what our mothers thought was fashionable. But really, in my opinion, they were not. But then again, I’m a minimalistic person and you can see it in my outfits. I don’t think I’ve ever worn more than 3 colors on my body.
Now, It seems I’ve been on a high-waist streak for the past couple of months. Sometimes…the less thought-out outfits I wear end up becoming one of my favorites. Also, finding pieces that can seamlessly incorporate themselves into my wardrobe is one of the best feelings ever. I recently got this top from select and I’ve found so many amazing ways to wear it.
I decided to pair this super feminine crop top with my work high waist pants to make the outfit feel more cool and elegant. I finished off the look with these pumps that I bought in a store at Imenti house. As for the sunnies, I wore them big to give the look a little personality. Sunglasses are very personal but I think every girl should have a selection. I’m sure you guys can agree with me that one pair tends to be boring over time.
