Trends from the 90’s have made successful reappearances on the runway over the past few seasons, but the return of the aesthetics of the decade doesn’t merely stop at clothing. More recently, iconic beauty trends worn on 90’s icons like Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore, and Winona Ryder have made significant comebacks in the beauty industry. The most prominent of these trends include berry lipstick, metallic and blue eye shadow, glossy lips, lip liner, and lower lid eyeliner.
Berry lipstick was the ultimate shade choice of the 90’s; to channel this look yourself, try Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Gone Greige, available online at Ulta, or Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Jam, available online at Sephora. Pair lip colors with a shiny top coat via Glossier’s newest Lip Gloss, available now at Glossier.com. Another beauty staple of the decade was heavily lined lips, usually a shade or two darker than the wearer’s lipstick color. Duplicate the look or truly make it your own with Bite Beauty’s Lip Pencil in 084 or 042 (available online at Sephora). Inky to bright cobalt blue and daring metallic shadows have both made a triumphant return with the launch of Pat McGrath’s Dark Star 006 in Ultraviolet Blue, available online at Sephora. For lower lid liner, be sure to check out Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer, available online at Marc Jacobs Beauty.

With the summer season coming quickly, bright colors and vibrant prints are becoming go-to looks for effortless warm weather style. For the past few spring seasons, tropical prints have been a prevalent trend in both clothing and accessories, and this spring is no different. Utilizing palm leaf designs, or rather oversized, gorgeously-splayed frond prints are an easy way to get into the spring or rather, tropical spirit, and luckily, there are more than enough options to choose from to channel this look. Try pairing these Target Palm Print Palazzo Pants with a simple top for an effortless, casual day out. For a slightly more formal feel, try Forever 21’s Contemporary Off the Shoulder Dress, or Asos.com Pink Palm Print Maxi Dress. In the accessories department, be sure to check out the Sonix Clear Bahama iPhone Case, or this oversized beach tote in a similar print, available online at etsy.com.

The most popular accessories that have emerged for this upcoming spring 2017 season have been anything but subtle or minimalist. Looking back at the Spring/Summer 2017 fashion week shows, designers mainly chose statement jewelry, bags, and other accessories to complement the looks in their collections. The most prominent looks to keep an eye out for include statement earrings, oversized handbags, wide belts, skinny scarves, platform footwear, and chokers.
Both Balenciaga and Marni included oversized bags for spring in their shows, while Roberto Cavalli and Lanvin kept the choker trend moving along with large, beaded versions in their collections. To get a more affordable version of this bold look, try the GUESS Multi-Row Choker, available online at Macy’s for $20. For an accessory flattering on almost every body, try wearing a wide belt, which appeared in the shows for Balmain and Les Copains. To try out this look for less, check out Urban Outfitters’ Coco Corset belt, available online for $29.
