The Timeless Power Held By A Blazer And A Pair Of Jeans

Rachel discusses the immortal tendency to look to the past for fashion inspiration, and explains why certain styles will always remain timeless.

Following persistent advice from friends, one evening I decided to watch the first episode of the new Netflix series One Day, only to find that by the end of the week I had made my way through the whole series, with a serious temptation to start all over again. Whilst most notably famous for its gut-wrenching romance plot (I promise there are no spoilers pending), the series also allows for an interesting rewind to London life in the 1990s and the early 2000s in its storytelling over 20 years, accompanied by a soundtrack of tunes faintly reminiscent of those heard pumping from my parent’s car radio. Whilst watching the series, I couldn’t help but notice the fashion and the distinct parallels between the trends of the 1990s and those that have crept back into stores today.

There is no mistaking, there are some things that should be left in the 90s, never to be seen again – aka the low waisted, ¾ trousers that can be seen in many photographs from red carpets of the 90s… and photos is truly where they should stay. However, the fashion of the 90s can arguably be viewed in two halves, the era of garish patterns, colours, and spiky hairdos as well as the fashion of minimalist, low effort chic. Now whilst the rather out there harem pants haven’t made much of a comeback, the 90s blazer, jeans and tee combo is arguably stronger than ever.

Despite style influencers like Matilda Djerf and Molly Mae, currently claiming the blazer and jeans as their unique staple look, their looks are clear quotes of those previously worn by the likes of Princess Diana and Julia Roberts in the 90s. Many of Diana’s most famous looks in the late 90s consisted of slim-cut blue jeans, a boxy blazer and maybe a pair of Tod’s Gommino loafers or a baseball cap. This practical approach to styling, balanced with a strong silhouette, was a far cry from the midi-skirt with a blouse underneath a V-neck jumper combination, previously worn by the Princess in her first years in the public eye. In dressing for both official photocalls or ‘off-duty’ activities, Diana established the oversized blazer as an essential piece of 90s style. Meanwhile, on the red carpets of Hollywood, Julia Roberts made the oversized suit a staple alternative to the dresses worn by other female stars at the time. One particularly iconic oversized Giorgio Armani trouser suit worn by Roberts to the Golden Globes is the key example of her staple look, which often consisted of a black blazer, denim trousers and a white t-shirt. In a conversation with Vogue, Roberts explained “I wore jeans and a white T-shirt all the time… Back in those days there were no fashion rules. You just wore what you wanted to wear.” [ see Roberts’s article with Laura Hawkings for further information].

Roberts’ reflection on the radically casual appearance of her style, contrary to the expectations of female fashion in the 90s, raises an interesting point as to how this style has now become a key component in the carefully curated ‘clean-girl aesthetic’. The boots, blue jeans, black belt, white tee, black blazer, and gold earrings combo has become an almost permanent feature in my Instagram feed, and I am not complaining about it. Whether it’s the ability to appear put together with minimal effort or the chance to feel comfortable whilst wearing something smart (an opportunity rarely afforded to women), the 90s blazer and jeans combo has come back with vengeance and appears to be staying for some time yet.

Hence, as contemporary dramas increasingly jump back to the eras of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, it allows for generations of viewers to revisit a previous decade and for some of us it exposes a collection of music and fashion trends that we might not have known. In the case of the 90s, it appears to have made quite the influence on contemporary trends. Thus, with summer looming ever closer, I know it won’t be long till I will literally have to be prised from my favourite blazers, jeans, and boots but at least I can be certain that my favourite outfit combination isn’t going out of style too soon.

  1. The selection of wheels is particularly critical, as they not only influence the car’s look but also its handling and performance. The owner of a 2005 Ford Mustang expressed a preference for the wheels, underscoring their importance in the overall perception of the vehicle. It’s important to note that while Mustang GT wheels are lug centric, Nissan 370Z wheels are hub centric, which poses compatibility issues for direct interchange. This distinction necessitates careful consideration of wheel specifications to ensure proper fitment and vehicle safety.
