Let’s Party Like It’s 1990-Something

The party season is in full swing so were turning back the clocks for some major outfit inspo.

It’s all about going into the NY how you mean to carry on—killing it in a drop dead ensemble and kinda drunk. But with everyone stepping up their game for the annual party of all parties, trying to find something to wear is shitty-tequila-shot HARD. And because all great ideas repeat themselves eventually, make things easier by looking back to a time when there was diamante a plenty, ample amounts of girl power, and, as the world hung on the dawn of a new millennium; some of the most iconic party get-ups of ALL time. Yep, we’re talking about the 90s. Grab your note pads and fluffy pens and read on:

Matchy Matchy

Ever heard of FOTSD? You probs won’t have because I’ve just made that up, but the Fear Of turning up in the Same Dress is very real. We’ve all been there. But if you and your bestie are basically Kate and Naomi in spirit then embrace doing the whole matchy-matchy thing this New Year. Think sequin dresses, smokey eyes, and wavy hair for some retro glamour. We got one for you and one for your BFF, too.

The Queen Has Arrived

The holidays provide the perfect opportunity for you to Dress. Up. Honey. And since the party don’t start til you walk in—make an entrance. Channel a little of da Queen herself (Britney Spears, duh) with a fitted maxi dress, faux fur stole, and a glitzy lil purse.

Where’s Da Rave At

Pay tribute to the 90s rave scene via this classic Gwen Stefani blue hair and space buns moment–because it really doesn’t get much more iconic than that. Stick to a bralette, leather pants, and face jewel combo. Update tip: You can leave the fun fur on the Molly-water-soaked warehouse dance floor, thanks.

Whatever the Leather

Too cool for color? We respect that. You’ll hit up a jazz club or a spoken word night anyhow, so bras that are bras but also tops might not cut it. Take some tips on how to kill the understated all-black-erry’thang look from OG fashion goth Winona Ryder. A black vegan leather dress, super sheer tights, and a red lip—simple but always effective.
