The 90s are definitely making a comeback. Slowly, but surely they are reentering our closets, our mind, and, most importantly, our hearts. You might have already noticed that some of the collections presented for the spring/summer 2016 season sports different items that belong to the fun 90s. There were also many lovely ladies that attended the Fashion Weeks in attires ripped from our favorite sitcoms in the 90s. Therefore, we have prepared for you a short list of 5 dresses you can rock this summer, inspired by the whimsical decade.#1. Floral, strappy, and combined with denim
Is there anything more 90s than a floral maxi skirt, a pair of low converses and a loose denim jacket? I think we just managed to describe “the uniform” of the 90s. Back then, this is what all the hip girls were wearing and they were wearing it with confidence. It was an era of being comfortable, relaxed and not showing too much skin. It was the decade of the “spaghetti strap”, proudly pioneered by the fabulous Kate Moss. If you want to look just as fabulous as she did, here is a great guide on how to wear any dress with confidence.
Denim was in vogue as well and you couldn’t really find one person on the street without a denim jacket, be it man or woman. The trick here is to keep it colorful. A floral or paisley dress will go wonderfully with a dark denim jacket. Don’t neglect the shoes either and keep them in a kooky color.#2. The fishnet dress
Here is another staple of the 90s – the fishnet. You probably remember the likes of Britney Spears and Gwen Stefanni wearing it and proudly taking it all the way to the 2000s, where it stopped. But now, unlike these two singers, it’s back. However, you need to stay alert when you choose this outfit, as fishnet dresses are difficult to style. Not done properly, you might end up looking ridiculous.
Here are a few pointers for wearing a fishnet net dress this summer.
· Never pair it with high heels, because, even if it is maxi or midi, you might look a bit more vulgar than intended.
· It’s best to avoid colorful fishnet dresses and stick to white, browns, and black. They are much to take in as it is, without adding a neon color to it.
· Always wear it with something underneath. It can be a tank top and a pair of shorts or even another dress, in the same color. Layering is extremely important here.#3. The fringe dress
Here is an amazing example of a sequined, fringed 90s dress. It’s from the Naeem Khan summer 2014 collection and yes, you can recycle it even if it’s from two years ago. Remember this trend is all about bringing the old 90s back. This couture gown is simply stunning and would be perfect for a party, birthday or even an outdoorsy wedding.
The cold, cobalt blue is deep and refreshing, making the sequins look like water. The geometrical pattern gives it an edge. The 90s are livened here via the fringes, of course, and the neckline. The dress has a very round, retro neckline, with simple straps and very little cleavage. As shown on the model, jewelry is best left out, because the dress is quite a looker in itself. For a really 90s look, leave your hair down and style it in messy beach waves. Or, of course, try ‘the Rachel’ or you can find more wavy hairstyle ideas here https://hairmotive.com/wavy-hair/.#4. Short and sweet in cotton
Remember all those cotton dresses that we used to wear in the 90s? Well, they’re back. And we’re really glad they are because they count among the most comfortable dresses ever. The 90s cotton dress resembles the slip dress to some extent. The difference is that it’s made of cotton, not silk and it’s a lot tighter.
You can buy them in absolutely any design, color, and pattern your heart fancies, as long as you keep the 90s line. Add some sandals, converses or even flip flops and you just created yourself the trendiest and newest, yet comfortable look this summer season has to offer. A small tip here – add a cardigan on top when you are cold or in the evening. It will further your 90s look and keep you toasty.#5. The stylized baby doll
The 90s also saw the rise of another type of dress, the stylized baby doll. It was exactly like a normal baby doll dress usually is, only a lot less puffy on the bottom half. Also, the top was simple and it came with thin straps. It was also made of cotton and had an elastic waistband incorporated, so as to create the baby-doll figure. Its colors were quite demure, compared to the bright and cheerful colors baby-dolls usually come in. This is a great choice for you this summer if you’re planning on going on vacation somewhere warm, for a picnic, to go roller blading, playing tennis and taking long walks in the park. Pull all your hair back in a slick ponytail and keep your makeup light and fresh. This type of dress is best paired with some low-top, all-white tennis shoes. The fun thing about it? You can also add a baseball cap.
The world entire is seeing the return of some of the 90s trends as something positive. Just like we’ve shown above with these 5 90s dresses you can wear this summer, we’re glad to have thin spaghetti straps back, as well as baby dolls and denim jackets. Let the good times roll!
