The 1990s were synonymous with Britpop, New Labour – and the cool fashions which are set to make a huge comeback.
Nineties fashion trends have seen a revival in part thanks to TV shows set in the period, including The Crown and Derry Girls.
Celebrities such as Hailey Bieber, 26, and Kendall Jenner, 27, have helped increase the popularity of oversized trousers with slim fit T-shirts.
Once popular with Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, 50, bucket hats are now being worn by a host of stars such as Rihanna, 34, and Bella Hadid, 26, and footie supporters across the nation.
Fashion brands are also breathing new life into 90s fashions, from Miu Miu with its micro-mini skirts to Versace's chainmail dresses.
Celebrity stylist Danielle Whiteman, who has worked with This Morning's Holly Willoughby, 41, reckons 90s trends are back because they make people feel good about themselves – and says they won't be disappearing soon.
She said: "Nineties style was about feeling good about yourself and being comfortable, which when you look around, is where we are in the world, especially post-pandemic. It's all about good vibes.
"I think realistically, the trend is here to stay, as it has seen a reemergence for some time now.
"It's also a case of good style never really going out of fashion. Instead, trends retire for a period and then are re-introduced to a new generation."
Knee-high boots, once a fashion staple of the Spice Girls, are also making a comeback, with the likes of Kim Kardashian, 42, and Rihanna now often being seen flaunting them on their Instagram accounts.
Paul Donnelly, footwear expert at shoe retailer Heavenly Feet, said: "The 90s knee-high boots are back in!
"Celebrities are leading the charge and we're already seeing the trend everywhere as an ode to the return of power dressing."
Among the trends coming back is neon – once popularised by stars including Madonna, 64, Jane Fonda, 85, left, and Kylie, 54 – who loved to sport bright hair and clothes.
These days, celebrities such as Zoe Kravitz, 34, and Nicole Scherzinger, 44, often sport lime green trousers.
Fashion giants such as Christian Siriano and Versace included neon green suits, dresses and matching sets in their 2022 fashion shows. Others such as Prada and Dior are this year flogging neon accessories like handbags and shoes.
Head-to-toe prints peaked in popularity in the 90s disco revival when they were sported by Spice Girl Mel B, 47, right with Emma Bunton, and Grace Jones, 74. The likes of Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, 40, and Scream Queens star Emma Roberts, 31, are helping the one-piece outfits make a comeback.
Priyanka turned heads at the British Fashion Awards last year in a floral jumpsuit and coat, while Emma was seen strolling in West Hollywood last month in a floral print jumpsuit with cream boots.
Oversized shoulder pads are fast becoming a regular in wardrobes.
Recently they have become favourites with celebs including actress Natalie Portman, 41, and model Emily Ratajkowski, 31, right. Discussing the 90s revival, Sarah Ryan, a style coach and fashion instructor at Goldster, said: "The great news about these trends is that they don't have to cost you the Earth.
''If you want to convey authentic, throwback style, visit your local or online vintage shops.
The mini skirt became a sensation in the 60s and was once the go-to outfit of top Brit model Twiggy, 73, left.
The garment has seen several revivals including in the 90s pop scene and is becoming cool once more thanks to celebs such as former
Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts, 41, and US actress Olivia Rodrigo, 19, showing their legs in them.
The mini skirt is also set to be showcased in the fashion world, notably at next month's New York
Fashion Week, where LaQuan Smith, Christian Cowan and Dion Lee designs will be modelled.
