Not sure if you heard, but there’s a hefty dose of ’90s nostalgia circulating among the fashion set—and we’re not mad about it. In fact, we’re all about it so long as the look feels updated and fresh (not teleported from the set of Friends). Channel the grit of the decade by cinching your slip dress around the waist with a button-down, embracing modern takes on distressed denim or going a little grunge with a rocker tee and coated denim. The vibe reads undone Hollywood cool (think: early Jennifer Aniston and Kate Moss). Here, get our styling tips via four looks we created with must-have pieces by AG, modeled by LA- and Stockholm-based photographer and influencer Michaela Wissén.
Micro Floral Top + Denim Skirt
A petite floral print and raw-edge denim skirt are quintessentially ’90s. A billowing fit on top nods to Clueless’ Cher, while flounce details and neat accessories ensure a fresh effect. Silk crepe and a fitted high-waist make the ensemble appropriate for the office, brunch or running around on the weekend.
Cargo Shirt + Distressed Denim
Bring balance to repurposed denim by tucking in a washed silk utility shirt—a subtle but chic nod to the grunge era. Paneled design, soft fray detailing and raw hems are a polished alternative to the overly distressed denim of the ’90s. Perfect for a casual office environment or weekend errands.
Nothing says the ’90s like a slip dress—nip yours at the waist by tying on a long-sleeved shirt for a throwback moment that stands the test of time. A swishy fringe jacket worn haphazardly off one shoulder channels a youthful ’90s vibe. A fresh way to do date night or drinks.
Rocker Tee + Leather Pants
