Mom jeans are back in style, logo-mania is once again a widespread trend and supermodel offspring (think Kaia Gerber and Sailor Brinkley-Cook) have taken over the fashion-world. It is safe to say 2019 is giving me ’90s déjà vu!
As the decade continues to influence today’s style, it seems only fitting to reminisce on the looks that made Cindy Crawford a house-hold name. The 5 foot 9 inch all-American beauty – known equally for her shiny side-swept blowouts as she is for her perfectly placed beauty mark – spent the years leading up to 2000 gracing the covers of Vogue and mingling with fashion royalty. While securing her spot in the industry, she managed to establish a signature style composed of classic silhouettes, ‘90s accessories and pops of color.
Read on for tips to achieve Crawford’s perfectly ‘90s style in 2019.
From blazers to bombers, Crawford knows evening outwear is a simple way to make a statement. The model was pictured on multiple occasions throughout the decade wearing an over-sized topper paired with mini-length dresses and skirts. Get her effortlessly cool look by choosing a jacket with interesting detailing, a unique silhouette or a tailored waistline.
Crawford proves her innovative style in a decade marked by bold accessories. The supermodel gave looks a preppy feel choosing to accessorize with knotted knits rather than jewelry or belts. Tie a neutral rib-knit around the waist of a monochrome look for added interest, or style a cozy piece around the neckline of a T-shirt for a more casual feel.
Neons are shining just as bright in 2019, as they were throughout the late ’90s. Take a cue from Crawford, choosing a simple form-fitted silhouette in a vibrant hue. Dress your look up by adding a statement necklace or tote along a patterned mini-bag.
Some of Crawford’s most memorable looks come from red-carpet or black-tie events. The ’90s icon proved to be a creature of habit, consistently choosing slinky silhouettes to show off her famous curves. Give your look an extra edge by layering long ’90s-esque pendant necklaces.
