Who would’ve thought … the Nineties are back.



Words by Sophia Charalambous


Get out those glow sticks and let’s go raving.

Time to party like it’s 1999!


For women


The only way to wear a slip dress in Nineties style is over a t-shirt or jumper.

Taking inspiration from Oasis’ Rosebud print slip dress (pictured left, £55), the winter way is with a jumper and a special pair of heels or boots.

This is a nod to the cult teenage film of the era, Clueless, where Cher and Dionne wore an insatiable amount of check.

The Whistley bag (pictured above, £159,) can be worn with dad jeans and t-shirt or an LBD to Nineties it up.

One of the most iconic looks of the decade was elaborate hair accessories.

A modernised version is this Magic hair slide (pictured right, £15) to be worn alone but ideally with even more slides.

Dr Martens

The British bootmaker reached its height of popularity in the Nineties with the rise of grunge fashion.

These classic eight eyelet lace-up boots (pictured left, £130) are not only footwear for a lifetime but a trendy way to step back in time.

For men


Cargo pants, originally a military design, found the height of their fame in the Nineties.

These trousers with drip effect (pictured right, £49.99), worn with a suitably retro pair of trainers and shirt, will complete the rave look.

For men, this checkered shirt (pictured left, £25) has a distinctive Burberry look.

It will work for any occasion, smart or casual alike.

The ultimate Nineties accessory, the bum bag (pictured right, £15) has been brought out for the new season in a sleek and simple black.

The shoe brand that was everywhere in the Nineties has launched the Parken (pictured left, £65).

Not only do they have a retro style, they’ve got inbuilt Air Cooled Memory Foam to keep your feet happy for a whole night of dancing.
