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.

*Collaborative post.

In order to maintain their superb condition, corsets need special love and care. you can enjoy wearing corsets for as long as feasible.

It makes the corset more durable and comfortable by allowing the steel bones of the fabric to gradually conform to your figure. Your body has time during the seasoning process to acclimate to the pressure of a corset.

Getting your corset ready

In essence, seasoning is the process of ‘breaking in’ your corset, just like you would with a new pair of shoes. Slowly and gradually adding seasoning can make your corset comfier and better suited to your shape. The steel bones in the corset can gradually conform to your figure thanks to this technique. By doing this, you will ensure that your corset fits like a glove and that you are placing less strain on the fabric and bones, which will help it last for a long time.

Seasoning also provides your body some time to become used to your new corset. Corsets can be molded to fit our bodies, but they also naturally shape our bodies. Because corsets are constructed and intended to pull the body in specific places, your body will adjust as your corset takes on the contour of your body. To prevent undue strain on your body or your corset, it is crucial to go through the seasoning procedure.

A seasoned corset feels different

Your corset will be properly seasoned when:

  • The top and bottom edges embrace your body and conform to it.
  • There is no edge gapping at the top or bottom.
  • The hooks and pins snap into position.
  • The grommets and laces fit together smoothly.
 How to season corsets
Common approach

For the first few days of seasoning your corset using the most popular method, it is best to make sure you wear it for about an hour to two hours. You should tie your corset somewhat loosely, but not so tightly that it makes you feel like you’re wearing a straight jacket. Beginner lacing should have a cuddle-like feel to it. Make sure your laces are not too loose so that you are ineffective but also not so loose that you cannot breathe or function.

After wearing your corset for an hour or two the first two to three days, you should gradually increase the amount of time you spend wearing it every two to three days by an hour. You should keep doing this until you feel your corset is perfectly contoured to your body.

So, on the first two to three days, you will be lacing in for up to two hours, the following two to three days for three hours, and so on until you are lacing in for roughly six hours at the conclusion of your two to four-week seasoning regimen. But keep in mind that time addition does not result in an inch reduction. You can further reduce your reduction once the corset is fully seasoned to your optimum (usually) two to four-inch reduction. It is essential to restart the seasoning routine if and when you decide to do this in order to acclimate your body and corset to the new level of reduction.

Other Techniques

Try an alternate strategy known as the 2-2-2 method if you don’t have the time or aren’t as serious about waist training and waist training corsets and just want the straightforward hourglass shape a corset can provide. Even so, it’s crucial to check that your clothing fits properly to ensure that you look and feel your best. You still have your corset tailored to your contours using this simple way, it simply happens a little bit quicker and less dramatically. With the 2-2-2 method, all you have to do is lace your corset for two hours a day for two weeks to reduce your waist by two inches. You should then have a basic hourglass shape that is nicely and comfortably molded. After completing the first round of the 2-2-2 method, you can even add a little more drama without going overboard by taking it down another two inches.

How to avoid seasoning

Get yourself the perfect fit by choosing the best fit if you don’t want to go through seasoning. While seasoning your corset is a terrific way to attain the perfect fit, picking the right size and style of corset is also crucial. The better your corset fits both before and after seasoning, the more closely it will conform to your natural shape. It’s important to measure oneself properly.

  • Take a measurement around your back and the largest part of your bust, which is typically your nipples.
  • Take a measurement all the way around your waist, just below your ribs. Lean from side to side while placing your finger where your torso is bending to locate the area below your ribs that is the smallest.
  • Lift your leg while standing and feel with your finger where the bone articulates into the pelvis to determine where to take your hip measurements. The tape measure should run around the top of your bottom and is almost at the largest part of your hip. Don’t take a high hip measurement.

However, seasoning is still advised to help you get acclimated to your new corset. Keep in mind to pause when necessary. It should never be uncomfortable or painful during this process. It should always go steadily and be carried out with consideration and care.
