  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of twenty years ago! From Rachel Green from Friends, to Natalie Imbruglia and Sporty Spice of the Spice Girls, I had a great time pretending it was 1997 and letting my inner 90s child shine through. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!Don’t forget to click the bell to turn on post notifications!Safiya's Nextbeat: https://nextbeat.co/u/safiyaIG: https://www.instagram.com/safiyany/Twitter: https://twitter.com/safiyajnFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/safnygaard/IMAGESvia Getty ImagesSOURCESGetty ImagesSeventeen MagazineYM MagazineElle MagazineSurvey Of Historic CostumeAssistant Editor: Claire WileyMUSICVia Audio NetworkSFXVia AudioBlocks

    Hello bbs! I finally finished the 1997 video, lol! What do you guys want to see next? I honestly want to do every year of the 90s now... can't wait for '98 and the arrival of Britney/Xtina/dueling pop stars. Which outfit was your fave?

    I was 19 in 1997. The Rachel and Sporty looks you presented were perfect, but as someone who grew up outside of Seattle around that time, and therefore a grunge and post grunge expert, I have a few notes on your Torn outfit. 1) Yes, we wore chunky soles, but not on our Docs. Those should have been way more streamlined and high top. 2) The pants should have flared all the way down instead of coming back in at the ankle. 3) Your shirt should have been either been midriff exposing or close to it, which is what we mostly wore with our big pants. 4) The cardigan should have been more grandma or at least a color other than black, or a PVC long coat. It's so interesting to look back now and see how it's viewed by people who were bebbies at the time, and how these distinctions in the style are still present in my mind but probably not important to anyone else.

    I feel like the 90's are so on trend, you could just wear anything you wear today and get away with it
