In magazines, on the telly, and in on your local high street, you can’t move for quilted lumberjack items and massive floppy jumpers. I’ve seen more pixie crops in the last month than I have since Girl Interrupted came out, and wearing a moth-addled cardigan over a pretty slip dress is suddenly (gloriously) acceptable. And round sunglasses! So edgy! No longer what you wear on school trips circa 1994. Mad for it.
"Oooh, there's a Dieter Brummer poster in this ish!"
This is very exciting. I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to resurrect this look ever since…. Oh, let’s be honest I never really stopped wearing it. But finally my hoarding tendencies have been rewarded, I can dust off my grandad collar longsleeves, babydoll dresses and beanie hats, and fully indulge my layering fetish.
Other things from the 90s I would like back now please….
-Thursday night TOTP
-The Big Breakfast
-Just 17 style Does He Fancy You quizzes (phwoaaaar)
-both Sister Act films
-Amanda de Cadenet
Now, that fashion rule that says if you remember it first time round, you’ll look silly doing it again....it doesn't count if you never stopped, right? Right?
