You would think Bella Hadid, Rihanna, or Olivia Palermo would be the influences behind the way you’re dressing right now, but think again. If you look back and investigate further, it’s safe to say that the major trends we’re seeing at the moment – on the streets, the runways, and your Instagram feed – can be credited to two long-forgotten style icons: Elvis Presley and Winona Ryder. Today, Savoir Flair teleports you back to the 50s and 90s, breaking down exactly what makes their styles so 2016.
Lace-up tops, flared jeans, and skinny scarves – who knew we’d be dressing like the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in 2016? Elvis has certainly not left the building; his fashion choices from the 50s are now hanging on the rails of your favorite department and high-street stores.
Netflix original series Stranger Things is on everyone’s watch list at the moment, and it’s rapidly paving the way for Winona Ryder’s big onscreen comeback. Even though her current style is not as organic and raw as before (it’s been over two decades, after all), we still can’t help but look back on her prime fashion moments during the 90s. The actress would pair a mini skirt with a bucket hat and still look good somehow!
