3 Words: '90s Fall Outfits

I don’t know about you, but the last thing I care about right now is summer style when I know that the time for fall fashion is less than one month away. You could have already guessed that based on some of my recent articles, such as this one about my favorite boot trends, this one about the style mistakes I make every fall and how I plan to fix them, and this one about the trend that has me putting a pause on jeans. But I figured I should say it (again) anyway. After all, it really is the most stylish season of the year and, as always, the inspiration is abundant.

Since I’ve already shown you the more modern outfits I’ll be sporting in the months to come, I figured why not take it back a couple decades and draw some inspiration from our favorite ‘90s style icons. From Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy to Naomi Campbell, ahead you’ll find 11 outfits from 1990 to 1999 that somehow feel unbelievably fresh for 2019. See (and shop) them below.

If you're all about minimalism, look no further than Gwyneth Paltrow's sleek head-to-toe black look (and be sure to note her on-trend boots).

Iman's all-black and leather outfit is definitely something you'd see on the runway today. Also, how chic does she make leggings look?

Tyra Banks is making me realize I have to add more cardigans and strappy sandals to my shopping cart.

Cindy (and now Kaia) has rocked many a leather blazer in her time, and this is just one of the many memorable outfits.
