Bringing the 90s Minimalist Fashion Trend into your Wardrobe

The 90s have always been a good place to look for fashion inspiration. I still remember vividly how stylish the fashion trends were for that decade, and it is great to see how inspiring the 90s minimalist fashion trend is today. When I think of how fashion and style were in that era, memories of minimal colours and tailored designs flood my mind. It was the era of casual chic pieces and accessories.

If you are on the hunt for some outfit inspiration and you are wondering how to add some 90s fashion vibe to your collection, you are reading the right fashion blog post.

Bringing the 90s Minimalist Fashion Trend into your Wardrobe

Here are some ways you could incorporate the 90s minimalist fashion trend into your wardrobe today –

Chunky Flat Boots

I was a huge fan of the chunky flat boots trend in the 90s and I remember having a couple in my shoe collection. It is such a stylish trend to add to your wardrobe and very easy to style up or down. I remember styling my flat boots jeans or long dresses with slits. Styling the boots with mini dresses or skirts paired with tights will also look very stylish.

The Tank Top and Straight-Leg Jeans

This is one of my favourite looks from the 90s. Recreating the 90s minimalist fashion look is super easy with a tank top and straight-leg jeans. This was my go-to look back in the day and you can still find me in similar outfits in the summer months. Now that the weather is getting colder, I will add a comfy cardigan to this look to keep me warm. I love having tank tops in a variety of colours because they are super comfy and easy to wear. Straight-leg jeans are always in vogue. A girl can never have too many of them.

A White Shirt and Cropped Leggings

A minimalist wardrobe is never complete without a few white shirts. Pairing a white shirt with cropped leggings and chunky mules will create a 90s fashion minimalist look effortlessly. I find this look really stylish and easy to wear. It definitely still inspires me today. For the chilly autumn months, I would swap the cropped leggings for a full-length, and the chunky mules for the flat boots.

Style Icon: Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi

The stunning Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi is the style icon this month. For those who do not know who this beauty is, she is a Nigerian model based in New York City. Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi came into the limelight at the tender age of 16 when she won The Face of Africa” contest. This talented young woman has been slaying on runaways and billboards ever since.

Style Icon: Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi

I love seeing Oluchi on and off the runway. Her signature style is usually feminine, chic, and elegant. This stylish woman can look good in pretty much anything and she knows it. I love how she puts her pieces together. She is definitely a natural when it comes to fashion and style, but then again, that should come as no surprise since she has been modelling high-end designer pieces since her teenage years.

I recently came across an interview Oluchi Onweagba-Orlandi had with Vogue and she talked about where how love for fashion started from. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Fashion was a huge part of Oluchi’s life growing up in Nigeria

I spent most of my after-school hours at a local fashion house called Henrietta Design Collections. She specializes in made-to-measure traditional Nigerian and Western outfits for her clients. I would hang around, watch, and assist her with errands. Those were my early associations with fashion. She actually introduced me to modeling.

It is lovely to see that this famous supermodel remembers her background and acknowledges where she got her love for fashion and modelling. Many people tend to forget stories like this as they ascend.

Adding a bit of Lagos fashion into her New York Wardrobe

Well, I had to adapt to the style culture to blend in. I updated my closet to main classics that never go out of style . . . including countless jeans. But I infused a little bit of Lagos fashion into my New York wardrobe by mixing knee-length, plain-fabric tunics with jeans on Fridays, and wore caftan dresses on the weekend, especially during summer.

I would love to see her wardrobe. I can already picture the stylish pieces and designs she is describing. Her outfit below is a vivid description of a blend of New York and Lagos fashion.

Fall 2022 fashion trends

*Collaborative post.

The fashion trends Fall 2022 have brought back the sexuality that was simmered down at the height of the pandemic. Everyone wants to feel sexy once in a while, which is why these trends are booming both online and offline – everyone misses the empowered feeling of wearing something sexy. However, this sexuality is not stereotypical, it has a lot of irony, playfulness, vintage aesthetics, does not distinguish gender, and is nostalgic for the best times in the history of fashion. So, let’s explore fall trends further.
Fall trends 2022: Zara leather blazer image

A fall wardrobe will always be incomplete without leather. In 2022, fashion trends dictate unique and bold fall looks: sleeveless jackets, motorcycle jackets, and biker pants. Bold representatives of street style combine everything in one outfit. You can wear a motorcycle jacket with black classic wide-leg pants and closed shoes with a platform or elegant high heels. Complement your fall style with black or yellow glasses.

If you choose a leather plus size trench coat, look for a version with a custom cut, voluminous shoulders, fringe, or metal rivets. A classic Zara leather blazer is a more relaxed option. Wear it with a plain white shirt or polo shirt and black Amiri women’s jeans with a wide or straight cut.

Maxi dresses and skirts

Now, the most stylish dresses are pleated feminine maxi dresses and skirts made of weightless fabric in neutral colors. Fall Fashion Trends 2022 examples include:

  • tulle;
  • ruffles;
  • vintage;
  • monochrome color trends;
  • white is top fashion.

Fashion continues to be inspired by Dickens’ characters, reinterpreting them in a modern way. Therefore, the fashion trend with feminine dresses is unexpectedly complemented by bright Crocs on tights, Maison Margiela tabs, or gothic boots.

Corsets and a slim waistline

Fall fashion again turns to the theme of sexuality. This includes emphasizing the waist with different clothing styles and accessories. One example is a corset worn over a voluminous shirt. These trending clothes can be worn even on the bare body, but you can also combine them with interesting bottoms like baggy jeans.

Diversity and Bodypositivity continue to grow in popularity. Gentle self-care is also trending, such as non invasive belly fat removal – a quick and effective body transformation without surgery that emphasizes and slims down your waist.

Button up shirts

The classic button-up shirt still remains a timeless trend. This year, you should wear a cozy and voluminous button-down oversize version of the good old button-up. White is good, but blue stripes are even better. Create a casual and relaxed look with handmade cutouts and decorated Amiri Jeans or more understated New Day pants.

Dark academia outfits image

An interesting trend in recent seasons is Dark Academia clothing. Youth TikTok subculture, inspired by The Secret History, Harry Potter and Dead Poets Society, gothic architecture, and art, multiplied by the aesthetics of social networks, gave us a great example to follow. The key elements of dark academia outfits are:

  • white shirts, cardigans, jackets, plaid skirts;
  • oxford shoes; you can also try a knee-high boots outfit;
  • a natural palette with a bias toward darker tones – browns, dark greens, navy blues, black; plus a basic cool white, beige;
  • gender-fluidity;
  • accessories from the 1930s-1940s fashion, backpacks, books, academic, higher education, and prep school aesthetics.
Cargo Bottoms

Plus-size fall outfits have been complemented by cargo pants with patch pockets. A straight cut or transformer with ties at the bottom is massively popular. Massive Big Smith Overalls appeared in fall collections and street looks during Fashion Week. Streetwear cargo pants look best in khaki color but feel free to experiment. The casual cut is just what you need to nail the fashionable fall wardrobe essentials.

Cozy Coats

Fall is a time for coats, which is why many people adore this season. Most fall trends are associated with comfort, so we tend to choose outerwear that’s large, warming, and resembling a bathrobe. You can find many different textures and colors to suit your personal preferences.

Faux fur accessories

Fall fashion trends this year are filled with nostalgia. Fashionistas choose faux fur in bright shades, from purple to burgundy, in combination with stylish outerwear and catchy accents like large buttons, chains, contrasting patterns, animal prints, and croc gloves.

Fall outfits made of leather are spectacularly complemented by fur accessories: hats, scarves, sleeves, handbags, and shoes.
