There are few people in history with style as revered as Kate Moss, whose low-key, cool airport outfits, iconic party looks, and easy yet elegant ensembles for major fashion events and movie premieres from the '90s remain some of the most featured on my Pinterest feed. Because of that, I—like every other fashion person whose style errs on the side of minimal with a touch of grunge—spend much of my time trying to find ways to dress like her. And with both of the previously mentioned aesthetics experiencing a high in fashion once again, doing so has never been easier. 

From slinky slips with asymmetric hems to roughed-up leather jackets paired with sheer maxi skirts, Moss's best street style and event looks from her early days in the modeling world have a direct through line to today's trends. Scroll on to see how the modern-day takes stand up to her original outfits, all the while shopping your way to a wardrobe as cool as Moss's in the '90s. Tip: If you're anywhere near as smitten with her style as I am, you'll need your credit card.

I know people like to hate on wearing jeans on a flight, but as Moss displayed at LAX back in 1994, the classic style is perfect for air travel. For one, jeans always look great, so you're free to head straight to your destination, as there's no need to change out of your sweats. And more, they're surprisingly comfortable if you pick the right pair—nothing too rigid, high waisted, or tight.

It doesn't get more '90s than a black tube top and matching trousers, especially when both are worn by Moss. Worn at a party celebrating the release of Clay Pigeons in 1998, the look feels right at home in 2022, when both puddle pants and tube tops are trending right at the very top of the fashion food chain.

Another day at the airport, another spectacular airport outfit by Moss. Though more colorful and print heavy than many of her '90s looks, this brighter ensemble—featuring textured green trousers and leopard-print mules—still feels authentic to her off-duty style.

To attend a screening for the Natalie Portman film Closer, Moss chose a gorgeous green slip dress and Barbie-pink strappy sandals, both of which could easily be mistaken for modern-day new arrivals.

Arguably, there's no Kate Moss look more famous than the naked dress she wore to an Elite Model Agency party in London back in 1993. Lauded for its minimal look and completely sheer fabric, the dress will forever go down as one of the most iconic naked dresses in history.

If I had to pick just two items to style Moss in back in the '90s, they'd be a rugged leather jacket and some sort of slip dress, hands down. To me, that combo sums up her style exactly, so it's no wonder that's all I really want to wear right now.

I, for one, love a cocktail dress on the red carpet. It's something we don't see much of anymore. Of course, this isn't just any cocktail dress—it's a strapless, feather-trimmed LBD worn with just-strappy-enough sandals.

Even when she was just wearing a simple camel coat and heels, it was a look, which only proves what we already knew about Moss: It was her attitude that made her the It girl she remains today.

You don't need jewelry or accessories when you have a buttery-yellow dress and Marc Jacobs on your arm. That's a fact.
