90's style OOTD

I was a 90's child and loved everything from Take That and Spice Girls to The Lion King and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, but I was unfortunately too young to have truly appreciated the style for myself - though, my Mam did a good job with the abundance of corduroy trousers, pinafores, dungarees and the famous velvet dress every 90's little girl had at one point.

Now the style has made its way back round the trend circle I've thoroughly jumped on board and stocked up on all things to make me look like an extra on Clueless.
All items I wore today were from Topshop, but the most recent buys were my shoes and, of course, the corduroy pinafore - which was obviously needed to make a true 90's look.

My MOTO pinnywas an impulse buy back in January, but I've worn it enough to justify the purchase. it's comfortable and versatile with styling it. I've also worn it with a long turtle neck and a bardot shirt. The crop top I wore isn't actually on shelves any more, but I recently fell in love with a similar Multi Stripe crop top, which I'm sure will make a fine addition for a spring look.

My sandals I picked up in the sales last summer, but I was overjoyed to see they'd brought similar soft heeled sandals back for the spring season (and there's new colours!). I think they're such a much to give that extra bit of a Clueless Cher look, with the chunky mid-heel.

It's a simple outfit, but it ticks the 90's boxes and a pinny can be very flattering on many shapes - though I must caution you, I purchased a 10 and I feel like an 8 (which isn't really my go-to size) would have fit better. So best to buy in store rather than risk it online.

So this is my fave 90's look at the mo - but I'm on the outlook for so more inspo, so do send over your 90's looks and suggestions!

Ciao for now,

*All items I'm wearing (besides shoes) are in petite and can be purchased in regular sizes and tall.
