For Celine, Hedi Slimane went way back, taking inspiration from the designs the house had produced in the ‘70s, like pleated A-line skirts, culottes, and women’s tweed blazers. At Kate Spade, the Seventies effect was derived from suits with high-waisted, flared trousers and elongating blazers, even though the colors themselves were very bright and of the moment.
Moving away from black leather, at Sies Marjan a suit set was made of dark purple or blue leather in a streamlined fit. At Salvatore Ferragamo, looks played with this season’s affinity for slouchy, pajama-inspired silhouettes, with loose leather trousers and a button-up leather top really making us think of sleepwear. Other designers who crafted unique leather suits included Chalayan, Nina Ricci, Altuzarra, Off-White, and Drome.
Style Notes: If your top wasn't A) a vest or B) a corset in the '90s (setting aside grunge and athleisure for a moment), then you were living in a bubble! SJP was a strong supporter of boned and bodiced bandeaus, wearing them with everything from short suits to fancy red carpet skirts. The look feels a bit restrictive in 2018, so it's probably better to go for the milkmaid-style bustier-top trend instead.
Tweed is synonymous with Chanel in fashion, but also with the fall/ winter 2019-2020 fashion trends, since we saw this cozy autumnal material not only on the Chanel runway aplenty, but also in the fall collections of other major names. Tweed appeared in any way in the recent fashion lineups, from the outerwear to classic office-ready skirt suits to pants to romantic dresses.
The Celine show was opened with a pair of pleated culottes in a neutral brown, with more versions showing up on the runway as the show progressed, making it clear that these pants are going to be worn in offices all over the world in the coming season. It was actually a throwback to old designs from the house, and we gotta say it was one of our favorite iterations of the trend this season, likely because it was true to historical designs.
Fall Winter 2019 Fashion Trends Colors
Just as yellow reigned supreme on the autumn/winter catwalks, another bright colour was prevalent for the new season with designers across the cities injecting tangerine orange into their collections. Seen in ballgown form at Valentino and Emilia Wickstead, in day dresses at Stella McCartney and Rejina Pyo and in separates at Prada and Ferretti, there is no bolder way to brighten up your SS20 wardrobe.

Like they say fashion changes, but style endures. Trends come and go all the time; while we are glad some are gone, we are ecstatic that a few good ones are back. The crop top is one of those trends that found its way from where it started and this time it’s gotten better. Wear them with jeans, shorts, maxi skirts, tracks, and everything you can think of pairing them with. From the runway to everyday wearables, it is approved.
Fashion in the 1990s brought forth a youth movement and offered carefree styles that dabbled in rebellion. Grunge and minimalism were the main trends of the decade with hip-hop and “sexy schoolgirl” styles also trending. Designers such as Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen pioneered grunge and took inspiration from the gritty streets. Supermodels were traded in for a new breed of waif models with Kate Moss, and her “heroin chic” look, leading the pack. Everyone wanted to emulate Moss’s “too cool to care” style, and fashion featured this attitude. Music and fashion also went together as fans copied the unique styles of their musical idols.
Juice. SNICK. Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. TGIF. Wayne's World. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Beavis and Butthead. Feeling nostalgic yet? We sure are. The '90s were a great time for pop culture and music, but the style wasn't as on-point—or was it? Lately, we've been looking back at a time that for many of us here at Complex, were our formative years, and we've rediscovered a lot of the trends we forgot about.
Fall/winter has a way of sneaking up, just as you're enjoying those last beach days and poolside chill sessions. Suddenly, the frantic search for a cute winter jacket or pair of snow boots leads to some regrettable last-minute purchases. All that ends today. Snap out of summer mode for a brief minute and brush up on the fall 2019 fashion trends. Start adding these pieces to your wishlist and you'll be ahead of the game.
Miuccia Prada made cloaks a part of both her Prada and Miu Miu collections. The Prada cloaks were a little dark, made of dark brown or black lace, in a collection that took its inspiration from gothic horror. The Miu Miu cloaks were more romantic (and also decidedly warmer), with a bulkier design and large buttons in black, navy blue, and even a few in camo!
This year, we’ve seen a lot of biker shorts, flare jeans, resin and pearl barrettes, snakeskin, corsets, tie-dye, that one particular leopard satin midi skirt that everyone and their mother owns or at least has considered buying, and boiler suits—a whole hodgepodge of ’70s, ’90s and the early aughts, all in one year. A lot of these, we successfully predicted in last year’s trend forecast. Most were based off of runway looks, while some trends (ahem, the leopard satin midi skirt) originated from Instagram culture.
So-called "dad sneakers" were all the rage towards the end of 2018. Models, celebrities, and influencers alike were wearing chunky, oversized sneakers. Come 2019, they aren't going anywhere. Yes, they're statement shoes, but they're also practical and comfy. That's what we'd call a win-win! And for more great style inspiration, here are The 30 Best Fashion Trends of 2018.
2019 Summer Fashion Trends For Women
Supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss catapulted the slip dress to new levels of infamy in the '90s. It's no secret that the last decade of the 20th century was all about minimalism in every sense of the word. But this '90s fashion trend proved just how minimal style could truly go. Slip dresses left little to the imagination, hugging every curve.
Latest Fashion Trends
Last year belonged to the puffer, but 2019 is all about a different kind of performance fabric: fleece. We saw the trend start with Sandy Liang's Insta-favorite jacket, but designers like Fendi are ramping up the luxury, reworking the outdoorsy staple in leather. Of course, Patagonia remains the (very affordable) OG, but don't sleep on the latest reincarnations of this campy style.
To wear the ’90s fashion trend today you need to rework styles so that they are relevant in today’s culture. Instead of copying looks exactly as they were in the ’90s, recreate them in a modern and updated way. The trick is to capture that “too cool to care” attitude of the ’90s while looking fresh and on-trend. To do so, blend classic ’90s pieces like crop tops or chokers into your everyday wardrobe with skinny jeans and heeled boots. Alternatively, pair your favorite new dress with a ’90s half-up hairstyle or add layers by wearing a t-shirt underneath. Either way, have fun with your style and embrace the carefree, youthful feel of the ’90s.
Ultra Violet may be the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2018, but street style stars preferred a softer take on the trend this season. Rocking a range of shades from the lavender family, fashionistas proved that light purple is seriously stylish. Whether worn in the form of boots, dresses, coats or even head-to-toe ensembles, the flattering and feminine colour added a lovely touch to looks. Try it for yourself if you’re after something subtle yet exciting.
Timberlands that never once graced a construction site. Surf shorts that never saw a beach. Boat shoes that never set foot on a dock. The '90s were, if nothing else, a perplexing time for fashion. From the ankle-bearing allure of capri pants to the ease of throwing your hair up with a brightly-colored scrunchie, '90s fashion trends were wonderfully weird. Read on for the definitive list of the phattest, flyest style moments from this defining decade.
An elegant silhouette is hard to resist, and no silhouette is as elegant for evening wear as one that lengthens the body. Dresses that seemed to drape over models, flowing gently all the way to the floor and giving a slinky yet sophisticated vibe were some of our favorite fall/ winter 2019-2020 fashion trends – dresses that we hope to see on the red carpet soon.
The millennials are all sulking about this, and do not relate to the excitement around the revival of the mommy jeans, but we are glad and think it’s about time. Thanks to Britney and other pop stars, the mom jeans slowly disappeared from the nineties fashion wardrobe, malls, and brands. The style guides suddenly stopped mentioning these, and they became extinct. And, that’s why we have to explain what this is about now. Fine – they were just a pair of airy, comfortable, cotton denim pants that sat beautifully at the waist and were out near the thighs (unlike the painfully tight ones). There are a lot of variations, but this breathable pair of trousers is something we all need, and it’s time they were revived, at least as an option to some of us.
Top Ten Fall Fashion Trends 2020
So what to do you wear to a 90s theme party? Not sure? Don’t panic! Now that the trend has come back it is not very difficult to fish out clothes for the party. It is a combination of all the things we just discussed. Stuff like flared bell bottoms with crop tops; matching sets; denim skirt with neon sandals and fedora; or something like this will give you your dose of drama.
Last year off-the-shoulder had its moment; this year, it's all about the asymmetric neckline. Spotted on the runways of Carolina Hererra (left), as well as Zimmermann and Kate Spade New York, this slanted one-shoulder look perfectly highlights your collarbone and shoulder without displaying it all. This minor neckline tweak is all you need to elevate your outfits.
Fall Fashion Trends 2020 Women's British Open
Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton played with all varieties of big shoulders, giving us the aforementioned structural ones, as well as much more noteworthy ruffled shoulders that somehow avoided extreme femininity. In some instances, the ruffles were asymmetrical, while in others they were connected to the collar in a way that reminded us of a frilled-necked lizard ready to attack.
