Board shorts, of course, were typically worn by surfers. But that didn't stop young people in the '90s from wearing Roxy, Billabong, or O'Neill shorts when they were nowhere near the ocean. The guys' version was super long and the girls' was extra short. But they were pretty practical—instead of buttons and zippers, the fly was typically made of velcro.

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.
This was exactly what was done at Michael Kors, where thin belts layered over bulky blazers helped emphasize a slim waist. Big belts were used to cinch in the waists on dresses and over jackets at Zimmermann, although in other cases the waist looked particularly cinched because of the way billowy shirts were tucked into loose high waisted trousers.
Like the clothing, the shoes of the ’90s fell into the same trend categories. The grunge movement created an army of men and women alike wearing heavy-duty, combat boots. They were tough, gritty and paired with everything from slip dresses and florals to flannel shirts and frayed jeans. The minimalist trend also had its staple shoe in the way of Birkenstocks. Simplistic and comfortable, Birkenstocks came in a variety of styles and colors but still had that uniform feel. Platforms were popularised by the pop music scene, in particular, the Spice Girls. Converse’s Chuck Taylors, Manolo Blahnik’s Mary Jane style shoes, and classic pool slides were also on high rotation.
Designers are digging in their luxury heels when it comes to the almighty dot—simply put, the trend shows no sign of slowing. The innovative duo that is Dries Van Noten and Christian Lacroix found a place for the polka dot on a maxi skirt-and-simple tank pairing, topped off with a head feather, while Balmain embraced volume for the enchanting print, and Wes Gordon at Carolina Herrera went fitted, '90s, and sheer for one of his takes on dots.
At Gucci, the flap on a long gray trench worked to sharpen the shoulders, contributing to another one of the fall 2019 fashion trends, and also added a unique element, since the flaps at the front had a sharp triangular shape. Agnona presented a Matrix-y leather trench that had two extra-long flaps at the front, giving the whole look a priestly feel paired as they were with a Roman collar.
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.
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.
