1990s Style


While the classic 80s pantsuit remained a hot trend (sans shoulder pad), blazers paired with straight or bootlegged trousers or even (gasp) jeans became acceptable attire in the office. Conservative dresses and knee-length skirt sets also made a comeback and were often paired with funky leather jackets. However, the late 90s saw women increasingly pushing the envelope. The skirts were shorter, popular fabrics like Lycra and cashmere hugged curves, and necklines continued to plunge. A short, sleeveless, boat neck shift dress under a matching length jacket added a sexier spin to the everyday suit.
