Hola Everyone! Accessories are that one thing that can notch up your mundane look. It can take even the simplest of the outfit from zero to ten. Well, also, when you don’t have any new outfit to wear, accessories can come to the rescue. They are the easiest way to divert all the attention from a not-so-happening outfit to a much in-vogue accessory. Speaking of “in-vogue” accessories, it feels like it’s raining 90s trends. From high waist pants, crop tops to even accessories, the 90s are back and how. Well, all I can say is, the 90s isn’t raining just in our wardrobes but also in our playlists. With the popular hits such as “Tamma Tamma”, “Dilbar Dilbar” (to name a few) raging yet again in the movies, it’s so much nostalgic, isn’t it? Though I have to confess, no amount of raps can beat the original soundtracks and the emotion associated with the song. Whose to blame, anyway! Lips sealed about the 90s songs being plundered with the trend of rap, Accessories, however, have been welcomed with a hug into our wardrobes.
Broad belts have yet again gained popularity among fashionistas. Gone are the times where the sleek belt was a pick. They still continue to be a go-to for a formal look and in a Corporate environment. Broad belts, however, are a perfect way to notch up your casual #ootd. Also, they make a loosely fitted outfit tad put together. Here I am wearing not just a loose top but also wide legged culottes, both of which could give an ill-fitted look. So, I opted for a black broad belt and to match it, I picked these black lace boots. Even a loose fitted kurta or dress can be cinched to the waist with broad belts.
Fashion Tip: It’s a good form of dressing to match the colour of your belt with the footwear.
Baker boy hats (as they are uniquely called), are yet again a popular trend. Simple accessories as these are enough to divert all the attention to itself. For a casual day out, they are perfect to be paired up with any basic outfit.
One of my personal favourite accessories is the fanny packs or bum bags as they are popularly known as. They manage to make you look not just fashionable instantly but also help you go handsfree for a long day ahead. Have quite reasonable spacing to store your handy stuff like phone, cash, house keys, lipstick and shades. If you’re someone who is in a dilemma whether to spend money on these or not, I’d suggest, given their versatility, one must opt for nude and black variants as these colours go with all outfits.
Question: How many numbers of items that represent 90s fashion do you see in this pic? Let me know in the comments below.
Tiny Framed Shades
Strictly suiting small faces, tiny framed glasses were so popular back in the 80s and 90s.
Hoops are simply the best accessories today. I know how much I have managed to look stylish with these as I always have one in my daily bag and whenever I am running late, I quickly throw on hoops and they are absolutely versatile. One must definitely have a pair of gold and silver hoops as a saviour. They always come to the rescue when no other pair of earrings do justice to the outfit.
Fashion Tip: To make your accessories noticeable and do the talking, always tie your hair in a sleek ponytail or a neat bun.
Cat Eyed Shades
Cat eye frames are also another raging accessory from the 90s. However, it is a bit difficult for certain face types to pull off these.
Hair bands are the kind of accessories that’d make you nostalgic especially if you are a 90s kid. Growing up as a 90s kid, I remember how much I loved the hair bands. These have gained popularity now and are a great hair accessory to nail a retro look.
I remember stumbling upon this old video song (Dil dooba) from the film Khakee where Aishwarya was wearing a long red maxi and corset belt that made me realise how corset belts were a 90s fashion. The best way to pull off a corset belt is to wear them either with a light plain colour outfit or a dark coloured outfit that has small prints such as florals or light stripes.
That brings me to the end of the post. There is a sense of accomplishment I feel every time when I create a fashion post. The fashionista in me feels utterly satisfied. More fashion posts coming your way guys, so stay tuned. Until next time,
