I want you to flashback for me, just for a moment. I want you to remember a time of roller blades, the Bop It, and chatting with your friends on AOL Instant Messenger. Where drinking Surge, while listening to the newest grunge track, was the cool thing to do. There were no cell phones and no real technological distractions. And your favorite fashions were logo T-shirts, platform shoes, and futuristic-inspired makeup and clothing.
For many of us, the ’90s don’t seem like very long ago. In fact, it seems like only yesterday when we were inspired by a multitude of styles. Today, a whole new generation has taken that signature ’90s style and modified it for a whole new decade.
Bollywood’s pack of young style icons has wasted no time in warming up to this trend that is a throwback to their childhood, with Alia Bhatt leading the way. Bhatt has been spotted in appliqué patches on her jackets, crop tops and shorts on several occasions. We love her combination of retro denim shorts, a white shirt, and booties—perfect for a music festival.
There is no denying that denim and patches make for a winning team. Kangana Ranaut and Anushka Sharma demonstrate the merits of a patchwork denim jacket—a staple that can be styled with ripped jeans and jersey dresses with equal ease. You can also take a leaf from Jacqueline Fernandez’s book and break the monotony of a denim-on-denim look with a denim duster jacket featuring whimsical patches. Bored of your same ol’ jeans? Update them with some playful add-ons as seen on Amy Jackson. We bet on vintage Versace and calvin Klein that your present wardrobe gets a touch of nostalgia once you see these celebs adorning 90’s patch work!
