A while ago I made a post on the ’90s fashion revival, with a bit of insecurity to be honest with you, as I thought I may have not spotted a trend, but more of a fad… Well seems to me the ’90s fashion inspired looks are here to stay. From the High Street to the runways- with the sneakers comeback - we are witnessing a dip in the grunge-cool era of fashion. It’s as if we’re all a bit to tired of the studied, clean, safe looks and just want to feel free, cool, experiment and not give a damn about the rules. Kitsch looks, grunge-sporty outfits and un-styled styles are becoming quite refreshing fashion trends.
Apart from the washed out jeans, the denim jackets, the flannel, the boots - the ’90s revival in 2012 summer seems to be all about being sexy, comfortable & a bit rebellious. The Sneakers are back! From the classic black & white converses to designer ones – the sneakers are cooling down & styling up the feet of celebs & non-VIPs. Christian Louboutin Sneakers & Marc Jacobs 2012 Sneakers Collections are ones of my favourites. Classic ’90s styles mixed with today’s edginess, a punk’ish/sporty vibe, sexy, young and nonchalant. A reinvented original shoe craze! The sneaker invasion has taken over the high street brands, designer shows and collections & celebrities outfits. The streets (a perfect mirror & influence of fashion) are packed with feet dressed up in coloured, patterned, or classic looking sneakers. And the best styling rule… there is no rule. Keep them on while rocking ripped jeans, short denims, leggings, skirts or fancy flirty dresses for a rebel, girly edgy look. 2012 Summer Shoe Trend is all about feeling comfortable and sexy. So once in a while ditch the flip flops, high sexy heels or pumps and go for a tomboy look. 2012 Summer Trend is about being sexy while dressing down & having fun.
Celebrities are spotted everywhere with the funniest & coolest designs. And if you ask me, we could hold Rihanna & Kristen Stewart responsible for the sneaker trend revival. After all it was Kristen Stewart who showed up in the classic black and white sneakers on the red carpet. Anyway… cool or too childish, the sneakers trend is cool & young. A dip in the ’90s fashion trend in the middle of 2012 Summer!
Here are some of my favourite designs, celebs rocking this trend & some street styles for inspiration.
