Sleek ponytails and pared-down separates—90s minimalism is back and, surprise, fashion people are embracing it. The days of black and white Calvin Klein ads and Kate Moss Prada runways were simple, yet so impactful that more than 20 years later, those same pieces that helped define the era are still highly sought after (it’s not for nothing that Prada keeps releasing 90s re-edition bags.) Designers from the Olsens to Peter Do and more have made the 90s a cornerstone within their brand aesthetic, majorly adopting grayscale colors and loose silhouettes.
But if you don’t necessarily have the designer budget to go out and buy a closet full of vintage Helmut Lang or Jil Sander, the outfits below will help you master the style with pieces you likely already own. No eBay sleuthing or online bidding required. From the easy and effortless casual ‘fit to formal ensembles and everything in between, keep scrolling for 7 90s-inspired minimalist looks from fashion insiders to recreate now.
