I've Always Loved the Minimal '90s Vibe—These 30 Pieces Help Me Get the Look


When it comes to fashion through the decades, I have always been a fan of the '90s. It was all about an emphasis on minimalism and strong silhouettes that make you stand out more than the clothing itself. There was this simple yet sexy sort of vibe and understated chicness that many of us still love to this day. I have gone back and forth with this aesthetic, and while I am a huge fan, I sometimes like to dip my toe into maximalism and super-modern pieces. However, I always come back to the simplicity and effortless cool-girl energy that the It girls from the '90s had. When I think of fashion staples that stand out to me when it comes to the '90s, small black sunglasses, white tank tops, leather jackets, brown leather bombers, trench coats, and loose-fitting denim come to mind. 

While shopping on H&M and Mango, I found so many great items that fit the aesthetic perfectly and didn't break the bank. Keep scrolling to see the 30 pieces that are in my cart right now.
