I am weirdly obsessed with an Instagram account called Nineties Anxiety. The account is dedicated to serving its followers some of the best throwback moments of celebs in the '90s in addition to some moments I feel have never been seen before. I use this account to brighten my day, give me outfit ideas, and much more. Well, after scrolling through some of my saved photos the other day, I noticed I had dozens of photos of Leonardo DiCaprio in the '90s saved for my viewing pleasure.
After assembling all the photos in one place, I realized that Leo might be my new 2019 style icon. Back in the day, Leo wore everything from oversize blazers, chain necklaces, ribbed tank tops, and pleated trousers—all items that are either sitting in my closet as we speak or are on my list of pieces to add to my wardrobe this year. Beyond the exact items, I've also found myself drawing inspiration from how Leo styled the pieces.
Ahead, check out some of my favorite Leonardo DiCaprio style moments from the '90s and shop out the pieces you'll need to re-create the looks.
This outfit is my ideal summertime look—elevated yet breezy. The button-down will look great with jean shorts and the chunky chain necklace adds an unexpected pop.
I actually just bought the Jacquemus blazer below and already was planning on wearing it as both an outerwear piece and a dress all season long, but once I saw Leo in something similar, I knew I pretty much would never be taking it off.
What is better than a thin knit polo and wide-leg pants? The answer is nothing. So grab your Converse and do as Leo does.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect leather blazer-type jacket for months now. I still have yet to find one that fits my style and budget, but Leo has further convinced me to continue my search.
Oversized T-shirts and baggy jeans are kind of my thing. Adding a chain to my pants might be a bit much, but overall, the idea of wearing a relaxing yet cool outfit like this is something that is always appealing to me.
This might be one of my favorite Leo outfit photos of all time. This vibrant printed shirt with the delicate necklace and pensive expression make up the summertime vibe I'm hoping to have (sans cigarette).
Ribbed tanks like this, although a classic piece, are officially a cool top choice for summer 2019. Considering how many spot-on trends and looks Leo donned in the '90s, do this tank top and shell necklace look come as a surprise? Nope.
Blazers have become my latest obsession, and I even plan on wearing them as a casual jacket all summer long. I know Leo isn't wearing a shorts suit in this photo, but he inspired me to finally pull the trigger and purchase one because this '90s business casual look is everything I have been dreaming of.
Front pleat trousers are the pants I want to wear with my little ribbed tanks and sporty sandals all season long. While Leo's look errs more on the fall/winter side of the spectrum, I'm still taking inspiration from the look above for summer 2019.
An anorak or windbreaker is the one jacket trend missing from my closet right now and after seeing Leo running errands in this chill look, I need to purchase one ASAP.
This outfit couldn't be more '90s if it tried, and I am so here for it. The Miaou pants I have been eyeing for months now are finally on sale, and once fall comes, I know I'll wear them nonstop.
Statement jewelry is back. Tell a friend.
