Don’t know about you, but I’m still totally digging 90s style. And apparently, shit phrases from that era too.

So much so, in fact, that I’m compiling a 90s fashion shopping list, as inspired by some of the girls in my favourite films and TV programmes from the era itself…

Drew Barrymore, Poison Ivy (1992)

404
  • Round sunglasses (Drew’s are just perfect)
  • Battered leather biker jacket (to wear over EVERYTHING)
  • Oversized Yin-yang jumper (so 90s, non?)
  • Midi length printed shirt dress (not sure about the waistcoat, mind)
  • Slouchy white socks (to wear with stompy bovver boots)
  • Oversized denim jacket (am hunting down the perfect men’s Levi’s one)

Gwen Stefani, Don’t Speak (1996)

404
  • Midi length printed tea dress (to wear with bright red lippy and no shoes, just like our Gwen)

Gwyneth Paltrow

404
  • Jersey maxi skirt + knotted shirt + leopard print coat + Converse low tops (who knew Gwynnie was so cool?)

Bridget Fonda, Singles (1992)

404
  • Printed dress + biker jacket + jaunty hat + black opaques + DMs (+ Matt Dillon, thank you please)

Clarissa Explains It All (1991-94)

404
  • Fluro highlights
  • Pucci prints
  • Ripped denim (just over the knee)
  • Top with lary graphic motif (see also The Fresh Prince of Bel Air for excellent loud T-shirt references)
  • Polka dots (spot on)

My So-Called Life (1994-95)

404
  • Essentially, all of Rayanne’s outfits (including the hair scrunchie)

Blossom (1990-1995)

404
  • WTF? I don’t recall Blossom being this sexual?! (but I’ll be adding ‘studded EVERYTHING’ to my list, all the same)

Kelly Kapowski, Saved by the Bell (1989-1993)

404
  • Floral print jeans in pastel shades (already have)
  • Canvas lace-up pumps (already have)
  • Candy coloured cropped tops (already have – but I just wanted to include her, OK?)

The Secret World of Alex Mac (1994-98)

404
  • Beanie hat (click here for more slouchy headgear ideas)
  • Dungaree shorts (wear with one strap down for extra kudos))
  • Canvas plimsolls like Keds or Supergas (like these ones)

Reality Bites (1994)

404
  • It’s all about the ditsy floral print dresses (long or short)

And what with the 90s being officially vintage now (yup, the early part of the decade, 1991-1992, can now be classed as vintage as a result of the 20-year gap), it’s time to trawl your local chazza shops for original gems. Or, if you can’t be arsed, hit up the following places for 90s-inspired garms:
