The '90s Fashion Trends I'll Still Wear in 10 Years

If you ask me, the '90s are having a full tilt revival right now, and there's nothing low-key about it. I recently found myself getting ready to go out on a Friday night, and I looked in the mirror at the outfit I had constructed only to realize that the slip dress, leather moto jacket, and tiny-strap heels I had on weren't as 2018 as I had originally thought. My outfit was undoubtedly influenced by '90s fashion trends.

That outfit is actually one that I wear pretty frequently on the weekends or to events. So if wearing head-to-toe '90s items is a "throwback", I don't ever want to be "current". I've long imagined myself wearing my leather jacket and slip dress for years to come, even pledging never to take it off despite L.A.'s 90-degree heat. In my mind, these items are far more timeless than they are fleeting. Keep reading to see which '90s "trends" actually have major staying power in my closet.

Events, weddings, dinners—the slip dress is the universal piece of cocktail attire that everyone needs a version of in their closet.

Neutral handbags, especially structured shapes, give any outfit a polished update (no, you don't have to be wearing a skirt suit, though it certainly doesn't hurt).

Leopard print ebbs and flows as a trend every few years, but it never truly goes "out" of style.

This one hardly needs explaining. SJP made the LBD iconic, and we're still not over it decades later.

Okay, strappy heels are having a moment right now, but I'd argue that the shoes deserve a permanent spot on your closet.

I'm a little biased here, as I wear my leather jacket every other day. We have the '90s to thank for the edgy jacket's nonstop relevance.
