They’re Baaaaack!

The 90s trends are back. What are your memories of this time?

I was a teen during this era of uncertainty for Russia. Hyperinflation and long lines for the currency exchange remain fixed in my memory. Unlike the United States, where grunge was extremely popular, sportswear and neon colors dominated Russian markets. Techno music and electronic rock were enormously popular and influenced fashion trends. La Bouche, Dr. Alban, Prodigy, Ace Of Base and similar bands dominated the scene. Also, I will never forget the sudden flow of electronics into our household, which included a ton of video games. The Internet was not accessible to everyone. Many didn’t even know about it. Yet, thanks to my older brother who is extremely obsessed with technology and science fiction I was discovering things, like email, instant messaging, web sites, etc.

I have to admit, the 90s were a fascinating time for me. There were many new things to discover, particularly in the fields of fashion and technology. I was always sort of an early consumer. I always believe like I have to be one of the firsts when it comes to discovering new things.

Today I personally like to incorporate those cute royal blue blue slouchy pants into my wardrobe and pair them with high heels.

5 Ways to Update Your Wardrobe

We all have our favorite wardrobe pieces, which fit perfectly and flatter our bodies. Yet, even a beautiful piece can become boring and outdated. In this case, I personally love to purchase new accessories or mix my favorite outfit with new trends for an instant updated look. The great thing is, unlike decades ago when mixing different trends was a fashion faux pas, today’s fashion enthusiasts consider it standard. It can also save you a tremendous amount of money.

So, if you are thinking about updating your wardrobe without breaking a bank account, here are a few things you might want to consider purchasing:

Bib necklace. These jewelry items were very popular back in the 1960s. Today, you can find them in almost every vintage store for just a few bucks.

Pointed toe pumps. This is probably one of my favorite trends. They instantly give a feminine touch to any formal professional attire. If you are a big fan of androgynous fashion, mixing masculine clothes with pointed toe pumps creates a very chic, modern look.

Beanie hat!! Ah, I absolutely love this trend. The right beanie hat can instantly update your look and erase years, if it is mixed with the right clothes. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with formal wear, such as blazers, oversized coats and pointed toe pumps for a chic, modern look.

Oversized coat/jacket. This trend is an echo of 80s will stay for a while. It’s especially great piece to have, if you want to hide some flaws of your body. Choose the one that has a structured design to flatter your body. The stand-up collar, combined with tucked-in hair, will instantly create an edgy, modern image.
