One of the most iconic American actresses of the 1990s, Winona Ryder is most recognised for her starring roles in Lucas (1968), Beetlejuice (1988) and the dark fairly-tale Edward Scissorhands(1990). Beyond her wonderful ability to embody a variety of diverse acting roles, her fashion is quintessential of the 90s – littered with heavy leather jackets, baggy trousers, and thick black eyeliner. Here are some of my favourite looks:
Firstly, I absolutely love her bob hair-cut – it frames her face beautifully and is complemented by her striking red lipstick. Her wide-collared, pixie-green, button-up-long-sleeve heightens the impact of her baggy blue denim jacket. She leads the double-denim movement with pride. Her thick black, golden-buckled belt is something we should all aspire to have in our wardrobe.
I recently finished watching the incredibly original, comedy web television series Girlboss created by Kay Cannon. I instantly fell in love with the feisty, and irresistible Sophia Marlowe, played by Britt Robertson. I burst with jealousy in the first episode when Sophia bought the metallic leather jacket – quite possibly the most perfect item of clothing I have ever seen. Along with her eclectic red velvet trousers, denim vests, and pantsuits, she built the most insane retro wardrobe – a dream for every vintage enthusiast like myself.
We live in a fast-paced world, constantly on the run – rushing our breakfast cereal in the morning, frantically choosing an outfit to wear, and forget about the one defining element that could change our entire look for the day: our hairdo. I know what you’re thinking… Cool hairdos take time and effort, and are often meticulously planned… but that’s not always the case! The following hairdos are funky, stylish and most importantly, are something you can wip up super fast in the morning!
Gwyneth Paltrow’s incredible topknot is effortlessly wonderful! Pulled back into a messy, high bun, and tied with a silk black ribbon, the key to this hairdo is the way she leaves out two long strands – so it doesn’t come across as her ‘trying to hard’.
