I look for outfit inspiration from F.R.I.E.N.D.S, a popular t.v. series from the 90s. When I am wanting to revamp, reinvent, or mix up my style. Fashion trends are always coming in and out. Friends after two decades still offer up inspiring fashion looks. Especially now, with the grunge look coming back into style with well known celebrities rocking the look. Supermodels like Kylie Jenner and Bella and Gigi Hadid, as well as, singers like Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez.
The 90s aesthetic key characteristics are all the details.
The cornerstone to the look is not just the fashion, but a head to toe look. Starting with hairstyle and haircuts. One of the most coveted hairstyles came from the show Friends and got the nickname “The Rachel” which is a long layered bob with long bangs.
The make up look included: dark glossy lips, arched eyebrows, and the no-makeup makeup look.
The accessories would include: butterfly clips, round sunglasses, choker necklaces, and tiny shoulder bags.
Next to complete the ensemble is the clothes (my favorite part and arguably the most important part)!
Denim is at the heart of the look: jeans, dresses, overalls, and shirts. Also, popular patterns and styles from the 90s are cherubs, matching monochromes, and crushed velvet were put on everything from shirts, skirts, and dresses.
A common look worn, if not a cute patterned mini dress with a straight neckline, would be a crop top styled with a mini skirt or straight legged high-waisted jeans.
Finally are the shoes. A casual look would often be worn with chunky sneakers or combat boots (Doc Martens). A more formal look would be worn more with strappy high heels, square toes, and Mary Janes.
Add your twists and make it your own based on your personality.
Characters from Friends like Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe who have the look down to a T still put their own spin on the look to include their personalities. Rachel is the most girly and tends to wear more pinks and frills. Monica is more sophisticated and tends to wear darker colors and tailored trousers. Phoebe is more of a free-spirited hippie and tends to wear more Earth tones and loose fitting outfits like shift dresses and crochet vests.
