The entire collection, which is 70 pieces strong, channels the fun and funky elements of the iconic brand the defined '90s and '00s teen fashion.
dELiA*s, which issued an inspo-providing catalog, truly co-authored the signature style of the end of the previous millennium and the beginning of the current one. Chunky-heeled combat boots, fluffy, fuzzy, furry, and/or floral accessories, and slip dresses worn with baby tees were dominant looks.

It's on-brand, retro and vintage-inspired — without looking or feeling dated. It will remind you of the fashions of '90s and '00s-era Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Gwen Stefani, Brandy Norwood, and Mayim Balik — on screen, on stage, and IRL.
