5 Jackets That Ruled The 90s’

10th August 2016

The 90s. A time when we were influenced by Grunge, Gwen Stefani’s abs and the Spice Girls. For many of us it only feels like yesterday, and remember all too well the fashion that used to hang in our wardrobes. Now 90s trends have made a resurgence, we can pick up jacket styles we remember and love from way back when. Let’s take a look at what these are, shall we?

  1. The bomber jacket

If you didn’t have one of these yourself then your older brother definitely did! A cool aviator style in khaki or black with a bold orange lining. Now these are back in fashion with a much more flattering silhouette for girls . Check out our range right here on the site, featuring the usual black and khaki designs as well as fun, bold prints. They’re perfect for September weather.

  1. The puffer jacket

For those of us who enjoyed walking around impersonating a snug marshmallow, a puffer jacket was the only option and the perfect choice when your Mum refused to drive you to school in minus temperatures. Relive this trend with our selection of Puffer Jackets and Windcheaters – and much more stylish than the 90s equivalent.

Rachel from Friends was a big advocate of the denim vest jacket, wearing hers over cute tartan skirts and blouses, and we’re sure you have one tucked in your wardrobe ready to make an appearance on your next date night or weekend shopping trip – or perhaps it has already been claimed by a certain someone in your household. Perfect for creating a cute relaxed look, be sure to dress yours up in double denim with some baggy jeans or a simple slip dress. Our Jaclyn Denim Vest Jacket is the right piece for the job.

  1. The bold sports jacket

You probably owned several of this jacket style in the 90s and now the younger generation want to get their hands on them, too. Check out selection of sports jackets here.
