OLD NOSTALGIA IS BIG NEWS FOR SPRING
So far, 2018 has been the year of nostalgia. Britney is back – at Scarborough, no less – and Lionel Ritchie is set to be dancing on the ceiling somewhere in Chesterfield in the coming months. With the Spice Girls having made our 90s dreams come true with news of their long-awaited reunion too, the year is set to be heavy on the old school inspirations. One thing is for certain though; we’ll look a lot more stylish as we belt out Wannabe at the top of our lungs this time around, not a single platform or Union Jack mini dress in sight. This time around, we’ll be leaving Sporty’s skinny cami tops and tracksuit bottoms on the shelf and taking our 90s inspiration from Baby’s playful polka dot prints and Posh Spice’s love of classic cuts.
Boutique Moschino wasn’t around when Baby Spice last strutted the stage in her platforms but they’d have been a match made in heaven if it was. From the polka dot prints of their AW18 collections to the knitted bow back dress and the button detail boucle number that’s the star of their new season collection, Baby Spice-inspired looks are all grown up.
Posh Spice has proven her worth in the fashion world, recently toasting ten years of her own successful brand. When it comes to recreating Posh’s personal style, there are two ways to turn; MaxMara nails it with neutrals like the camel coat – a staple in her wardrobe season after season. Then there is the LBD. Posh couldn’t have made it through the 90s without one and the same can be said for your SS18. A good LBD never goes out of fashion so you will be wearing yours long after the Spice Girls have hung back up their dancing shoes. We love the square neckline and bow back detail on this simple, sophisticated shift. Just add sky-high heels and a deep wine lip and you’re good to go. Viva Forever to the LBD!
