Balenciaga's Triple-S sneakers sent the fashion crowd spiraling, trying to get their hands on a pair of chunky $895 kicks. ("There’s not a dinner I go to where a father or someone [doesn’t] say, ‘Stop releasing these shoes, it’s out of control, we spend too much money at Balenciaga,’ which I’m very happy with," the brand's CEO, Cedric Charbit, said at a conference.) More broadly, it, along with brands like Escada and Opening Ceremony, reignited an interest in this particular kind of footwear: Searches for "statement sneakers" were up 2,211% at the end of 2018, per Pinterest.
To wear the ’90s look in 2020, a crop top is a must-have. These midriff-baring tops were an essential fashion item for ladies living in the ’90s and are on-trend once again. Today, you can relive the best fashion from the decade by pairing a crop top with a pair of mom jeans. This chic combination is a favorite of celebrities and street style stars alike. To make the look modern, just swap cropped camisoles for short t-shirts, sweaters and tank tops.
It's impossible to conjure an image of the '90s without picturing the cast of Friends (and, in particular, Jennifer Aniston's now-famous Rachel haircut). In 1995, co-stars Aniston and Matthew Perry walked the 47th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet in ensembles that defined the decade: Aniston opted for a strapless, floor-length gown, complete with a pair of silky gloves, while Perry paired a classically '90s vest with an ill-fitting suit.
The saying “what goes around comes around” may be intended to describe karma but it also works perfectly to explain the cycle of fashion. Trends and styles that were once considered modern and daring become old and ugly, only to be reborn and re-worn decades later. And that cycle seems to be turning quicker than ever. Less than 20 years later, fashion that was considered cool in the ’90s is cool once again. Whether it’s on the catwalk, on the street or in the stores, ’90s trends are appearing everywhere. So, embrace those crop tops, chokers, and Doc Martens, and we’ll show you the modern way to rock them. Here is our guide to ’90s fashion and how to wear it today.
After looking at all the fall 2019 collections my coats started to feel so...short. Tory Burch, Max Mara and others presented longline coats that will provide extra warmth this winter. These longline coats aren't your typical lightweight dusters either. Instead, find them super structured and made of heavy wool. Basloe agrees, noting that fall is all about the statement coat. "A coat with some kind of drama is a must-have for fall," she said, suggesting a bright yellow puffer that skims your ankles.
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.
We also saw more designers use vegan and sustainable materials to craft their garments and fall 2019 accessories. Almost everyone, from young designers to major fashion houses, played with gender in some way for the winter 2020 fashion trends. Some did so by crafting menswear-inspired items for women, while others did so by presenting unisex garments. As a result, some of the major fall/ winter 2019-2020 fashion trends are suits, loose trousers, and big-shouldered jackets and blazers.
A bit of extra fabric at the top of the sleeve at Koché created an effect that was somehow both structured and slouchy. It was all about the way the fabric extended the shoulders and fell sharply, which appeared powerful but not rigid. There were a few other clever instances where shoulders were made stronger thanks to subtle sewing techniques that kept things from looking bulky.
