Light wash denim, overalls, mini backpacks, chokers, and flannel jackets tied around your waist. Do any of these items sound like something you own? Well then, you should thank the 90s for these great pieces. Now that 90s trends are coming back into full swing we think it’s only fitting to look at Alessandra for some inspo.
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio recently posted a throwback photo to her teenage years that has us feeling nostalgic for the ‘90s. The ‘90s was the decade that the world prepared for the coming of Alessandra Ambrosio, her career in the modeling world launched as part of the Brazilian invasion that emerged in the US in the late 90’s.
Chokers, the ultimate staple when it comes to ‘90s fashion, have resurged and been spotted all throughout the runways, red carpets, and celebrity Instagrams since 2016, and it’s not going away anytime soon! These days, you can take a page out of the model off duty handbook and rock the trend with a modern twist by wearing minimal, dainty layers of tiny chains (which is very Alessandra-bohemian) or keep it true ‘90s fashion with a velvet choker.
Denim really made it’s splash in the ’70s but by the ’90s they’d been ripped, dyed, cut, and embellished. Denim on denim was trending, any way you can think of, stars wore it. Remember o Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s denim on denim ensemble at the 2001 AMAs? Now that was a little extreme but denim was ultimately trending. Overalls and denim jumpsuits were the perfect fashion statement. Ale’s flared leg jumpsuit will leave you feeling like a supermodel with elongated pins.
This versatile textile worked great for a decade filled with grunge. Here, Ale sports a Balmain lace jumpsuit that’s even complete with a choker neckline! The lace jumpsuit is perfect because of the delicate fabric that has a goth spin. We think this is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd of mini rompers for your night out on the town.
Fresh Faced Makeup with Smokey Eyes
Grunge was no doubt, one of the overarching themes to ‘90s fashion and that meant even portraying it through makeup. Forget heavy lip liner, and instead opt for the grungy smokey eye while keeping the rest of your face minimalistic. Pair this instead with a nude lip, it goes a long way and always feels and looks fresh.
And finally the mini backpack… A very common misconception is that the backpack was made for the sole purpose of lugging your books around from class to class. Well, this is completely untrue! We love substituting the obvious purse choice for a chic mini backpack. The backpack gives you that model-off-duty, on the move, type vibe.
Anja completely nailed the ‘90s vibes on Insta! It’s no secret that little Anja is Ale’s mini me, and it’s clear she takes after the Victoria’s Secret angel, and has an eye for fashion. Rocking multiple ‘90s essentials from the plaid headband, to the pendant choker! Watch out world we foresee that Anja may very well follow in her mother’s footsteps and take the world by storm.
