Sure, I have a penchant for the cool, minimalist version of style that was practically everywhere in the '90s. In my opinion, though, Gwyneth Paltrow was someone who truly did it best, and her looks from the decade are all I can think about right now. As I've been in a mindset to refine my style, build out a closet of items I really love, and cut out the pieces I won't be wearing in the years ahead, it occurred to me that what Paltrow was wearing 25 years ago still rings as relevant today as it did years and years ago.
So while I'm not basing my entire wardrobe around Gwyneth Paltrow's '90s fashion style, I'm certainly using it as a point of inspiration as I attempt to craft a closet full of versatile pieces I'll be wearing for years ahead. Scroll down to see some of Paltrow's most iconic looks from the '90s and the style tricks to follow to recreate them now.
Tie Your Looks Together With a Classic Bag
You can't go wrong by wearing a timeless structured bag like Paltrow is wearing here on the set of A Perfect Murder. It's truly a wardrobe staple that goes with everything and will never go out of style.
Stick to Neutral Shades
Paltrow's '90s looks are grounded in easy neutral colors like black and gray that can easily be mixed and worn with a range of outfits. The pieces she's wearing here look just as relevant now as they did decades ago.
Leopard is the cool animal print that fashion people love. While it's bold, it also works into a minimal fashion wardrobe.
Learn to Love Matching Sets
I haven't been able to stop thinking about this look ever since I first spotted it in Great Expectations. This outfit is proof enough that a cool matching set is a wardrobe must-have.
