A Modern Take On 90s Fashion Trends

It was kind of an alarming realisation for Team Missy that most of you reading this are 00’s babies, officially making us nineties babies old relics. But lucky for us the 90’s are SO in right now. Thanks in no small part to the incredible Derry Girls the nineties are taking over fashion again. Thankfully it isn’t as much of an assault on the eyes as the first time around.

Here’s how you can work some 90s fashion into your wardrobe without looking like you’ve been caught in a time-warp.

Hair Clips and Scrunchies

Take it from us; you were doing 90s fashion wrong if you didn’t have a million hair slides or butterfly clips. We’ve already told you why we are obsessed with the hair slide trend but we are also here for scrunchies! As demonstrated in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before a scunchie is VERY important! Penneys, Claires and Topshop have lots of great options. The rule with scrunchies is the bolder looking the better and go super high with your ponytail!

Mom Jeans

The first signs that 90s fashion was on the way back was reappearance of the Mom Jeans a few years ago. Although we are ride or die for black skinny jeans it is nice to be comfy without wearing a tracksuit. Also, can we just write and ode to high-waisted everything?! Sometimes cuts can be a bit weird on Mom Jeans, so shop around and try them on until you find the perfect fit. We love these ones from Topshop or the original Levi’s, which are available in Kildare Village BTW!

Platform Trainers

I’ll tell you what I want what I really really want(ed) in the 90s, Platform Runners like Baby Spice! With the Spice Girls set to play Dublin next month it might just be time for me to make my 6-year-old dreams come true and invest in these. Well, maybe not the ones that Baby Spice is wearing in the above picture – they are insane! Also spot a 13-year-old Prince Harry! The return of the platform trainers have divided a lot of people.

Chokers

The ultimate 90s fashion piece was the choker! New Look are selling the “authentic” ones that ruled the 90’s, but we love Missoma’s offerings, which are much more wearable and so pretty.

Slip Dress

Yes, it looks a lot like a nightdress, but a slip dress can look amazing. We are obsessed with this one from Nasty Gal and it’s currently reduced to €24! If it feels a bit too out there for you wear it over a plain white t-shirt for the ultimate 90s fashion look.

Bumbags

You knew you were going on holidays when the bumbag came out! We are glad that we left the original bumbags back in the 90’s, but we are loving the modern take on them because they have reminded us just how handy they are. Even though we’re pretty sure our allowance wont allow us a Gucci bumbag we LOVE this designer-like offering from PrettyLittleThing.

Flannel Shirts

British YouTuber Emily Canham managed to tick off lots of 90’s fashion trends in this one look with Dr. Marten boots, mom jeans and a flannel shirt! We love the idea of using flannel shirt for the awkward in-between weather when it’s too warm for a coat but too cold to go without.

Statement Winter Coats for Winter 2018!

We at Missy are fond of a Winter Coat. But why settle for a boring coat when you can have a statement coat? Let’s be honest, coats are a big part of fashion in Ireland, as the chilly weather lasts for a good 6 months, a coat is all we see of an outfit for half the year! This is why a statement winter coat is a wardrobe staple! We’ve put together some of our favourite statement coats, check them out below!

1) Leopard Print

Leopard print is a big statement whether it’s worn as a skirt, a jumper, or a coat! You’ve probably seen them in most shops this year, and it looks like the trend is here to stay for a while so why not invest? We love these faux fur options below, especially the collared coat from Topshop. Nastgal’s option is also fab, but we think Boohoo have won with their cute take on the trend!

2) Faux Fur

So technically, our leopard print options above are faux fur, but how cute are these faux fur bomber style jackets?! Make a statement with Winter colours like this Boohoo blue coat, or this dark green Nastygal jacket! Go more muted with this Topshop baby pink faux fur coat – perfect to transition into Spring!

3) Red Coats

Netflix’s Sabrina has definitely caused a rise in the red statement coat trend, and we’re happy to embrace it! If you’re after Sabrina’s look, this Topshop coat is almost identical to hers. In the line for something a bit more practical for the Winter months? This Boohoo coat is perfect to keep you warm! Not a fan of full on red? Make a statement with an edge with this New Look check coat!  

 

What do you think of our picks? Will you be investing in any this Winter?

Fashion Update: Brown Is Back!!

You might be thinking we here at Missy have gone slightly bonkers brown is back…? Was it ever really here? You’re probably too young to remember, heck we’re too young to remember! But according to the parentals, brown was big in the 70’s, and now it’s back in all it’s 2018 glory! Well, that’s according to the big time fashion editors but who are we to argue with them?

When you think about it, it’s actually a nice neutral colour that can be mixed and matched with a lot of items you probably already own. The leopard print trend that looks fit to stay for all of this A/W season, would look great paired with it.

Want to jazz up a plain jeans and a jumper look? Brown boots is where it’s at! There’s no need to go all That 70’s Show and wear it head to toe in varying shades.

We absolutely love the burnt orange colour “tobacco” – how cute is this jacket and jumper dress?

Embrace The Mustard Trend With These Cute Looks!

Embrace The Mustard Trend With These Cute Looks!

You may have noticed one colour seems to be dominating the rails of most clothes shops these days – mustard, and we love it!

From bags and shoes to coats, skirts, and trousers mustard is massive for Autumn/Winter 2018. We’re not too surprised, it is a very Autumn-y colour after all! Last year’s A/W season featured a lot of mustard, but it seemed burnt orange was more so the “in” colour. Mustard is stepping out from the shadows this year though and is back with a bang!

We’re particularly loving the fact a lot of brands are brining back tartan, it’s very Cher from Clueless. How awesome is this Topshop jacket and skirt co-ord? If you’re willing to embrace the “ugly dad trainers” trend, these Fila Disruptor 3 Trainers will go down a treat!

If skirts aren’t your thing but you are still a big fan of the tartan trend, these New Look trousers are a great way to give a nod to the trend. They also look super comfy and will be so handy coming into the Winter months! Pair it with this  cardigan also from New Look to really amp up the mustard! A slogan tee with a pop of colour will break up the outfit.

Embrace The Mustard Trend With These Cute Looks!

We really love Cher’s mustard looks – how cute is this cardigan??
