Hello darlings, it's Kathryn Mertueil here, and today we're talking about 90's fashion trends. Now, as a society we've come a long way since the days of scrunchies and platform shoes, but I must confess, there are a few 90's trends that I can't help but love. I do hope to be seeing plenty of you sporting these looks during the run of our show at Stage West, especially on opening night May 6.
Let's start with the iconic grunge look. Who could resist the appeal of ripped jeans and oversized flannel shirts? It was the perfect mix of rebellious and effortless, and it made us all feel like we could take on the world. Of course, being the fashion icon that I am, I had to put my own spin on the grunge trend. I paired my ripped jeans with a tailored blazer and heels, creating a look that was both edgy and sophisticated.
Then there were the crop tops. Oh, how I adored them! They were the perfect way to show off a toned midriff, and they paired perfectly with a mini skirt. I wore them to countless parties, always ensuring that I was the center of attention.
Of course, we can't forget about the ubiquitous denim everything. Denim jackets, denim skirts, denim overalls...it was all about denim. And let's not forget about the classic mom jeans. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about this trend at first, but after trying on a pair, I was hooked. They were so comfortable and chic, and they made my legs look miles long.
Now, I know what you're thinking. Kathryn Mertueil, fashion icon and socialite, can't possibly be a fan of the tracksuit trend. But hear me out. There were times when I just didn't feel like dressing up, and the tracksuit was the perfect solution. I wore mine with a pair of statement sunglasses and a designer handbag, and suddenly I was the picture of athleisure chic.
And finally, we have the fanny pack. Yes, I know it's a controversial trend, but I can't help but love it. It's so practical and convenient, and it adds a touch of nostalgia to any outfit. I wore mine with a simple slip dress and combat boots, creating a look that was both effortless and stylish.
So there you have it, my guilty pleasure: 90's fashion. It may not be the most sophisticated era of style, but there's no denying that it was fun and daring. Who knows, maybe in a few years we'll look back on our current trends with the same fondness. Until then, I'll be rocking my crop tops and mom jeans with pride. Thank you to Asst. Costume Designer Carly Hinson for the image boards.
