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.
When the 90s trend was initially picking up, it felt like a very temporary thing and a fad that will eventually fade. Surprisingly that’s not the case, and the designers are only expanding horizons. One such trend was the backpacks that felt so old school, but now brands like Chanel, Burberry, and many other big brands have signed up to this style. And, you should too.
Style Notes: Kurt Cobain was a style icon for many reasons. His baggy cardigans and love for the general grunge look inspired a whole generation of fashion. But we still love these oversize red sunnies he wore on the red carpet for the MTV Video Music Awards in 1993. While they've just started to come back into fashion, we'd forgotten about them for so long.

The inspiration for Michael Kors’ fall runway came from his days partying at the famous Studio 54, the logo of which he secured for the collection. The styling was as Seventies as it gets, as models were clad in long, belted dresses, earth-toned leather, neckerchiefs, with their hair styled to look big and fluffy. One model was clearly styled after Diana Ross, in a shimmery purple dress, big boa, and gorgeous curls.
If you were getting dressed in the ’90s, your outfit didn’t end with your clothes. It ended with your hair. Far from boring, ’90s hair featured accessories and, of course, scrunchies. Scrunchies were a favorite fashion item of the decade and completed many outfits. From simple satin styles to glamorous velvet designs, scrunchies were available in a range of options and could be worn with a ponytail, bun or pigtails.
At Tom Ford, for example, turtlenecks were worn under blazers to give a chic yet professional vibe. Versace, as always, was giving us outrageous styling, though the pieces themselves were extremely wearable! Donatella sent models on the runways in brightly colored turtlenecks worn over skirts or under blazers, with the outrageous touch being the bras worn over them.
Warmest of all was a long puffer coat at Tory Burch, which was worn open over a floral printed dress, also showing that the coat’s lining was made of a fabric with a similar white paisley floral print. Jonathan Simkhai also gave us a sleeping-bag-sized puffer coat of note, this time with a floral pattern on the outside that was made to match the dress worn underneath.
The resurgence of '90s fashion has resulted in a truly mixed bag of emotions. While the '90s can be credited with providing us with now-favorable slip dresses and kitten heels, there's also a raft of trends we'd like to keep in the past. After reaching out to the rest of the Who What Wear team, we reminisced about all the pieces we used to be so proud to own but can't imagine ever wearing again (we think), as well as the celebrity looks we'd happily revisit time and again.
