The ‘90s were a decade of serious looks... and questionable trends. Cast your mind back to low-rise jeans, crop tops, and platform wedges. That said, some stars wore these styles with such swagger that we could be persuaded to emulate them, even now. Case in point: Victoria Beckham.

From the sheer green shirt, to the colour-coordinated floral bra and sequinned low-slung mini skirt, there’s a lot going on this VB outfit. It’s almost too much. And yet, we can totally see the likes of Suede Brooks and other TikTok fashion stars rocking this look. So, maybe it’s just right.

A red all-leather jumpsuit a la Britney Spears in “Oops!...I Did It Again” takes some confidence to pull off. Naturally, Posh rises to the challenge. With monochromatic looks back in, and leather never going out of style, perhaps this is one to save for cooler days.

VB truly understands the power of a block-colour look — this time, she pairs her silver bustier and trouser set with a matching metallic choker. Talk about space chic!

The ‘90s were truly the era for baring midriff with a cropped tee combo. The good news (or bad — depending on how opposed you are to this particular look) is that it’s back in fashion. So, you can bring Victoria Beckham circa 1999 right into 2021, should you wish to.

The ‘90s, it seems, was obsessed with optical illusions; Magic Eye books were everywhere. Beckham’s yellow-and-black mini dress at the BRITs nods to that trend. Bonus points for continuing the spiral theme with the gold leg chain – something to wear for your return to the clubs this summer?

Victoria Beckham looks undeniably ‘90s in this gold lamé body-con dress. A signature Posh look if ever we saw one. If Ibiza makes it onto the green travel list, this is the celebratory dress to pack.

From the wedges to the capri pants and tote bag, this look gives major mum-goes-shopping vibes. No bad thing, but we reckon swapping in a pair of kitten heels would bring this all-white look into summer 2021.

From the bra on display to the makeup, all in complimentary tonal metallics, this look is undeniably ‘90s. A fuller brow, and this could be a red carpet today.

Who can blame VB for reaching for the capris again? They’re comfy, and very off-duty ‘90s. This time she styles them with a cute bustier top, embellished with silver butterflies – another motif of the decade.

The asymmetric shoulder and hem-line, the sequins, the red-and-blue detail... Once again, a lot going on here. Still, Victoria Beckham pulls it off like the style queen she is, and honestly? You probably could, too.
