Sometimes when I turn on the radio, or when I walk into a store, or see a style blogger on Instagram, I almost feel as if we have ‘reinvented’ the late 90s/early 00s. Everything from music genres, fashion and aesthetics in general seems to have taken so much inspiration from that particular era. Don’t get me wrong, I am certainly not complaining. I love me a good Destiny’s Child throwback or some head-to-toe vinyl outfit topped with a lovely beret, like we all just walked out of a Matrix remake.
Yet, music-wise, I feel like there is a thin line between taking inspiration and straight up copying. I’m not here to expose people, but I tend to have quite a good ear when it comes to comparing songs. If I hear a beat once, my brain tends to just remember it so people can’t fool me very easily with their tricks. With all these ‘inspired’ songs, I was feeling very nostalgic for a while and happened to find a YouTube playlist that was just right. Invite some friends, order some pizza and turn up the volume for a proper throwback house party!
When it comes to fashion, I’m getting serious Clueless and, as mentioned before, Matrix vibes. Either you go for school uniform chic, with checked items or gingham with pops of red (yellow is gorgeous too). Or you go for an edgy and high-shine kind of look. I am totally down for both of these looks.
At the same time though, we also see lots of glitter, chrome and metallic looks that are very futuristic. I recon that particularly during holiday season, you will see lots of glitz and glam in this ‘alien chic’ style. Don’t you just love how the old blends into the new? Or do you think it is lazy to bring back style/music from the past?

Lots of Love,
