Most Iconic 90s Fashion Moments

Posted on July 09 2019

90s inspired fashion has been having it's inevitable resurgence in the last decade. Platform boots, tiny crop tops and spaghetti straps are everywhere, and as vintage lovers we are absolutely here for it. 

When you think of 90s style, there are some celebrities who immediately come to mind. To nail the look, we've revisited some of the most iconic looks from the decade, along with some tips on how to build the ultimate 90s wardrobe.

Top 10 90s Fashion Icons

 1. Spice Girls (1995)

It wouldn't be a 90s fashion round-up if we didn't mention the Spice Girls. Geri, Emma, Mel C, Mel B and Victoria all had their own distinctive style, but the overall look is the most peak 90s vibe you can get. The mixture of satin, animal print, sportswear and lingerie as outerwear - it captures some of the biggest trends of the decade. With a heavy dose of Girl Power.

If you're not ready to totally embody one of the spice looks, the Spice Girls Homage Tee gives you the chance to show your love for the girl power!

 2. Jennifer Aniston 

A woman with style so powerful that she convinced every woman in America to get 'The Rachel' haircut, JenAn was one of the nineties biggest pinup girls. Her 'Friends' character, Rachel Green, was known for her fun and fashion-forward looks, as was Aniston irl. Slip dresses, crop tops and relaxed light-wash denim, her wardrobe consisted of the perfect low-key, cool-girl essentials.

 Jennifer Aniston is a lot of peoples fashion icon but Jennifer Aniston's 90s fashion is something many tend to talk about.

4. Kate Moss & Naomi Campbell (1999)

A duo that we just can't ever get enough of. Moss and Campbell were seemingly inseparable in the 90s as they both rose to the height of super-stardom together. They're model status ensured they were always in the hottest fashion pieces, but they certainly both had a soft-spot for shiny, strappy dresses and barely-there heels

5. Brad Pitt & Gwyneth Paltrow (1996)

The white shirts, the sweater vests, the tiny, TINY sunglasses - it just doesn't get more 90s. One of the most iconic trends of the era was when celeb couples started dressing identically, with matching colour palettes and androgynous shapes. Obsessed.

6. Drew Barrymore 

Grunge goddess Drew Barrymore was known for her gothic but girly looks. With a similar style to Courtney Love, Barrymore's red carpet looks throughout the era often consisted of cutesy baby-doll, lingerie-style dresses worn with thick platform sandals, heavy black chokers and some vampy, dark lipstick. Modernise this look by wearing an oversized crop-top over a lacy slip for an edgy, grunge look.
