ALL IN THE DETAILS: ‘90s Meets Minimal

The ‘90s have been back in style for awhile now. While some of us have embraced the trend fully armed with choker necklaces and jelly shoes, others prefer to adapt subtle inspiration from these ’90s styles in a unique way. This Fashionista brings her minimal, classic style and shows how you can take the ‘90s and make them your own.

My favorite detail that drew me into this look is definitely the frayed hems on the jeans. Whether you choose to buy or DIY your jeans this way, this is a must-try trend for spring. It instantly gives any look an edgy vibe, which works great in contrast to more crisp, structured pieces. This is exactly what this Fashionista opted to do for her outfit.

In contrast to the frayed jeans, this Fashionista is wearing a ribbed T-shirt with a sleek tank top layered over it. Layering tank tops over T-shirts is totally ‘90s, and personally, I am loving this throwback trend. There is something effortlessly cool about it, and it allows you to show off tanks that usually are put away until summer. I also love the color palette of this look. From the light blue wash of the jeans to the heather gray and black, which have just enough contrast on top. This is all tied together with a khaki trench coat creating any minimalist’s dream come true.

These details all revolve around the statement piece of the look—the trench coat. You can never go wrong with a classic trench coat. A piece that you can dress up or down due to its flattering structure and long silhouette. The traditional khaki-colored ones can be easily matched with just about any outfit including solids or patterns.

To bring it all together, this Fashionista brought in a pair of ankle booties. These are the perfect shoe to show off the frayed hems. They are also a good height because they give her a little boost without being so tall that she is uncomfortable strutting from class to class.

Don’t be afraid of trends that are not usually your style. Make them your own and as always, stay RAD!
