What goes around comes back around à la “The ’90s”. With the love affair 30 years strong, what is it about the era that is unparalleled by any other?

It’s been 20 years (deep breath) since Julia Roberts hit our screens in Notting Hill as Anna Scott and yet this minimalistic look feels more relevant today than ever. Anna’s wardrobe is full of staples that you can keep on perennial rotation like these monochrome off-duty separates and boxy leather jacket combo – true to ’90s fashion form. Just be sure not to spill orange juice on yours!
Our health guru Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t always squeaky clean. Before she went from grunge to Goop it was accustom for her to have a champagne flute in hand 24/7, whether she was stomping her way down the red carpet or photographed on a street corner hand-in-hand with Brad Pitt, she was the ultimate style maven of the ’90s. Gwyneth had the ultimate ’90s signature fashion formula that never faltered, cue: leathers, white tees, cashmere in monochrome or 50 shades of beige, slinky slip dresses, tank tops and a light slick of lipstick. To master this look it’s all about simplicity and polished paired-back styling – here, less is more.
Courtney Cox was a major style muse in the ’90s after gaining star status in the hit sitcom Friends. Courtney was known for her sleek, stripped-back take on sophistication. Enter: barely-there slip dresses, block heel sandals, slouchy suiting, stole-from-my-husbands-wardrobe white shirts, ribbed tops and how could we forget black, black and some more black. So, channel your inner Courtney and retrieve your old staples from the constraints of the back of your wardrobe and see our modern take on ’90s shoppable style.
