Give nineties style the 2022 treatment with our three relevant ready-made looks.
When we look across our brands' collections this season, most of them contain nods to the nineties; be it a racer back tank, an oversized blazer or a flannel button-down. The decade was a treasure trove of note-worthy looks, and while we're all for reviving the best of the nineties, we're keen to veer on the side of 'inspired' rather than costume.
With that in mind, we've created three balanced outfits to inspire your dressing this spring-summer, taking elements of the era's style and keeping them current with modern detailing and accessorising.
One of our hero brands, Skall Studio, has cited nineties minimalism as key inspiration behind the SS22 collection. And you don't have to look hard to see it. From loose-fitting blazers to subtle bandana-style prints, the pieces are suitably nostalgic without feeling dated.
We're particularly in love with the Joan Blazer, and while it offers boundless styling options, we can't resist the classic jeans-and-a-tee pairing. Nudie Jeans is our go-to for high quality, sustainable denim. Finish off the outfit with gold-toned accessories and a high-shine crossbody bag.

Nineties style icons adored their athleisure, and after the loungewear renaissance of 2020, we can relate. It's easy to make Girlfriend Collective sportswear shopping and lunch date appropriate, just opt for some loosely tailored trousers to add some refinement.
Kowtow's Racer Back Singlet is the kind of staple you'd expect to see on Rachel Greene. Infinitely versatile and crafted from durable organic cotton, you won't tire of this key piece anytime soon.
This last look is a mix of everything we love about nineties style. Mini bag, plaid flannel and oversized cuts? Check, check, check.
If you're not going the minimal route, embrace the fun side of the decade's aesthetic with a slogan tee from Thinking Mu and a Wax London check-print overshirt layered on top. HVISK has mastered the playful accessories, and a touch of gold or silver will tie the outfit together and prevent it from feeling too youthful.
While our brands look to past era's trends for fresh inspiration, their interpretations have one notable difference: the sustainable fabrics used and the consideration behind the collections put the planet first. This way, you can shop looks inspired by the past whilst protecting our future.
