Winona Ryder – A 90s Icon.

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.


This blue and white pinstripe sailor shirt is phenomenal, meek and seductive. It’s exaggerated bagginess simply works because of her straight black pencil skirt.


One of the most incredible dresses I have ever laid eyes on. It’s definitively feminine, high-neck cut, and elegant nature is bolded by her crystal, petal-like earrings. My favourite thing about the dress is the way the sequins capture the entire spectrum of the rainbow, from the reflecting light.


Winona in this photo, wears a similar dress, yet it is less reserved, and radiates a wild rebellion. Body-tight, the pearly-white dress is fraught with movement, with the beaded tassels giving the impression of a Parisian Moulin-Rouge extravaganza.Β  The simplicity of her silver necklace is key, to allow the sheer sparkle quality of her dress to shine.


Submissive and simple, this black, long-sleeve dress is incredibly flattering. The mesh material will never cease to be fashionable, as it allows for sleek black leather undergarments, like this funky bralette.

There is something about Winona Ryder that is hard to miss. Her style is immeasurable: on one end its classically girlish, and the other, fearlessly grunge. She defines one of the most spectacular cult looks of the 90s.
