Ready for the Nineties

How much pink is too much pink? Well, we wouldn’t know but we definitely do not care. I know many of you would be in a state of denial but it’s sometimes all right to be a tad extra. For example, let’s talk about the 90’s.

Growing up in 90’s was fun but it definitely was a tad extra. It was an era of flared everything – flared sleeves, flared bottoms etc. The slight bit of drama could be seen everywhere; be it the big hoops trend, colourful and bold prints, extra flares in sleeves, fun and big hair accessories etc. A lot of them have begun trending back and I’m still trying to deal with them. Although, I like classic feminine and chic styles a lot, I really like retro and going the punk route sometimes too, and so here goes another attempt at the same.

If you’re a 90’s kid, you’ll definitely remember wearing tie-ups – whether in shoes or your dresses. I saw this tie-up ruffled hot pink top at Zara last season and immediately thought of my childhood. Ruffles are the easiest way of incorporating some drama in your outfit and they’re definitely here to stay.

Adding to the drama were these flared pants from Koovs I paired with the layered ruffled top. With the layered ruffles and flares, I was quite sure I was ready to enter a 90’s party. To finish the look, I wore my strappy and fringed pink heels (also from Zara). Fringe is again a trend we have come to adorn straight from the 90’s.

As already a lot of things were happening in this look, I decided to stay away from statement jewellery. Instead, I added some balance with a dainty pearl drop necklace from Pipa-Bella. The slim oval sunglasses, which are also one of my current favourites, were the only other accessory apart from the pearl necklace.

I have tried and link some similar styles here since all the pieces are old and hence were sold out (though the necklace is still available).

I really want to know your thoughts on this look since it’s something I tired for the first time. So do let me know in the comments section below.

Until next time,

Stay stylish, Stay fabulous,

Reitu ♥
