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.
