Some way or the other, trends from previous decades always end up in our wardrobes in the present times. And when on the subject of decades, one would have to agree that the 90s have had a major influence on the way we dress, even now.
Of course, we are more than happy to have left behind the shiny spandex gear, the platform shoes and the low-rise pants back but to give credit where it’s due, the decade did give us quite a few hits too. Think checked skirt suits made popular by Clueless, the naval-baring top brought back to life by Katie Holmes, the many animal print iterations and the slip dresses with elegance to spare.
This time around, however, the focus is on a whole new trend that is taking Instagram by a storm. I am talking about the 90s-inspired maxi dress that you will be seeing a lot more of in the days to come. The reason? Not only is it newly revived this season, but its all rather fuss-free and effortless, without compromising on the style quotient.
The maxi dress is quite similar to the ones worn on numerous occasions by Rachel and Phoebe in Friends. Cut in a straight silhouette with a no-frills approach, the raging Instagram version features wide straps and room to breathe, making it the ideal pick for summer. It is fit for those who like to delve into a minimalist approach, but should you wish to explore, several sites provide options in checks, floral motifs and colourful versions fit for summer. Going a step forward, you could also play with strap options and hemlines, opting for one cut just below the knee as opposed to the full-length maxi.
The best part of the trending dress and its variations is that you can wear it while stepping out for just about anything! Before taking a look at a few of our favourite ones out of the lot, here are certain ways to style it effectively:
-Layer it using a tee underneath.
-Add a belt should you wish to cinch the waist.
-Add accessories; gold pendants worn in layers or a pair of drop earrings work wonders for an evening out.
-For work, add a light blazer or shrug on top to keep it semi-casual.
