The Nostalgic Nineties Pieces You Need To Do Kate Moss Proud

You're wearing low rise jeans, Britney is blasting through the radio and everything you're seeking in a relationship is inspired by the iconic Posh and Becks- yep, you've woken up in the '90s.

The ’90s called and they want their sh*t back…

You’re wearing low rise jeans, Britney is blasting through the radio and everything you’re seeking in a relationship is inspired by the iconic Posh and Becks- yep, you’ve woken up in the ’90s. More simplistic and toned down than its ’80s sister, the ’90s exudes cool girl, supermodel chic, with fun accessories in the form of mini bags, scrunchies and jelly shoes. If you’re a fan of playful, youthful style, this one’s for you…

’90s exudes cool girl, supermodel chic, with fun accessories in the form of mini bags, scrunchies and jelly shoes.

TikTok has been bursting with ’90s inspired ‘fits of late, many of which are helped along by the vintage and second-hand shopping revival that makes it easy to see, shop and style looks that have nostalgic influences. Alongside the wonders that the high street has to offer, Depop is high on the list of places to go for working this trend into your wardrobe, and it’s good for le old planet too!

If you’re new to the trend but wanna get in on this one quickly, here’s what you need to know, stat: slip dresses, low rise everything, light wash denim, capri pants, crop tops, halter necks, LBDs, mini skirts, chokers, cycling shorts, tie-dye and spaghetti straps galore. As this era was all about celebrity street and red carpet style, it’s always wise we look to the queens of this era when nailing a ’90s inspired look. We’re talking The Spice Girls, Kate Moss, Princess Di (yes we’re still not over her cycling shorts/athleisure looks), Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry and Clare Danes- they are simply chefs kiss and you won’t go far wrong by following in their footsteps.

Some say to avoid the low rise fits and kitten heels, but we’re of the school of thought that there is no such thing as too Extra when it comes to this golden era of fashion. You heard it here first people…

21 Interiors Picks That Celebrate the Beauty of the Female Form

From peachy booty vases and ceramics to abstract line silhouettes, you can say goodbye to bare walls and lacklustre shelves as these celebrations of the female body add a fun and flirty twist to any space.

Who run the world? GIRLS. If it wasn’t already obvious, we’re pretty into celebrating, uplifting and championing women in all that we do, so it probably comes as no surprise that we’re head over heels for the female form interiors trend that has taken Pinterest by storm in the past 12 months. From peachy booty vases and ceramics to abstract line silhouettes, you can say goodbye to bare walls and lacklustre shelves as these celebrations of the female body add a fun and flirty twist to any space.

inspiration from the female form has transcended the high street and small businesses everywhere, popping up in the form of prints, candles and soft furnishings galore.

For the experts in bum ceramics (we see you), the name Anissa Kermiche probably rings a bell as the original designer of the Love Handles vases which took Instagram by storm in 2020. The adoration for these vases has since inspired and fuelled the female form trend, appearing in our daily scroll well into 2021 with no sign of slowing down. And whilst her designs are a little on the spendy side (£2.5k on a vase anyone?), inspiration from the female form has transcended the high street and small businesses everywhere, popping up in the form of prints, candles and soft furnishings galore. We don’t know about you, but turning our homes into a flirty and fabulous female shrine has never been more appealing …

The Essential Items Every Wardrobe Needs

In the spirit of Kate Nash and the importance of strong foundations, the skeleton of your wardrobe is where it’s at for guaranteeing you never have another ‘I have nothing to wear’ moment again.

In the spirit of Kate Nash and the importance of strong foundations, the skeleton of your wardrobe is where it’s at for guaranteeing you never have another ‘I have nothing to wear’ moment again. And whilst it might seem boring to invest in the neutral, plainer items that don’t thrill you as much as a funky leopard print number, nailing the basics gives you the option to switch in trend-led items quicker than you can press ‘add to cart’- now that’s savvy shopping if we ever did see it!

Depending on your individual style preferences, the exact essentials you opt for may differ, but regardless, your basic items will serve to compliment your personal style as it grows both through trends and general lifestyle changes.


Depending on your individual style preferences, the exact essentials you opt for may differ, but regardless, your basic items will serve to compliment your personal style as it grows both through trends and general lifestyle changes. Not only will nailing your wardrobe essentials help you to get dressed more efficiently on a busy morning (oh for the days when we used to leave the house), but it will also help you cut down on the £40 here and £60 there high-street orders that happen every once in a while but never seem to add much va-va-voom to your rail …


It really is as simple as that! Jeans that hug you perfectly, classic tops that can be layered or worn alone all year round, timeless outerwear in the form of a trench or leather jacket, white shirts that can be dressed up or down, ankle boots, trainers and heels you know you won’t need to buy Compeed for, and you’re well on your way to capsule wardrobe perfection!

Period Drama Inspired Fashion

Let us introduce: 'Regencycore'. Similarly to Cottagecore in its TikTok and Instagram origins, the phrase was coined following the influence of Netflix's latest hit Bridgerton, which has seen the appetite for period drama inspired fashion skyrocket.

Between Bridgerton, The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit, it’s clear that the escapism we seek from an evening of Netflix has transcended beyond simply a different reality, but to a different time period altogether. Let us introduce: ‘Regencycore’. Similarly to Cottagecore in its TikTok and Instagram origins, the phrase was coined following the influence of Netflix’s latest hit Bridgerton, which has seen the appetite for period drama inspired fashion skyrocket. 

From empire waistlines to pastel hues, pearl headbands, lace detailing and corseted silhouettes, it’s the ultimate throwback in romantic, whimsical dressing.

From empire waistlines to pastel hues, pearl headbands, lace detailing and corseted silhouettes, it’s the ultimate throwback in romantic, whimsical dressing. Decadence is the key here- minimalist, scandi dressers look away because this trend is rooted in more being more. And whilst it might seem that there are limited occasions with which you can get away with a pearl detailed blouse or renaissance inspired corset, the magic of regal dressing can be found in the small details synonymous with the trend that can be subtle but instantly recognisable. 

According to fashion intelligence outlet Lyst, searches for Regencycore fashion have gone wild following the Internet’s Jane Austen worthy love affair with Bridgerton, as searches for corsets were up 123%, pearl and feather headbands up 49%, long gloves up 23% and empire line dresses up a whole 93%. It’s clear that it’s not just the Duke and his spoon that have made a lasting impression on viewers.

Regencycore is reigning over the fashion world in 2021, and if it means an excuse to rewatch Bridgerton for the second (read: fifth) time running then so be it…
