Islandista Original Fashion Editorial: Old Time Somet’ing Come Back Again (Summer 2013)

Islandistas, as you would know, we’ve been doing quite a lot over on the print side of things for the last year and a half or so. In fact, during Christmas 2013, we celebrated the first anniversary of Islandista magazine which is based (for now) in Barbados.

However, we wanted to share what we’ve been doing with our loyal online readers who have been here with us from the very start!

At the end of last year, we shared one of our most popular photo editorials  - Lady Like Style which appeared in our Summer 2013 issue.

In that same issue, we had another, very different fashion spread- Old Time Somet’ing Come Back Again. This photo editorial focused on the roaring resurgence of 90s style – which of course is something we predicted way back when right here on islandistas.com!

Take a look at how we interpreted 90s style through a 2010s lens.

Dancehall had its golden era during the 90s as bold rude gals and flashy bad bwoys put their stamp on fashion.

The other big musical fashion influence of the 90s was grunge music and vintage floral dresses were part of the girly grunge uniform.

Around the way girl: We loved how groups like TLC and Salt n Pepa used to mix tomboy style with sex appeal. A snap back cap and sneakers paired with batty riders and classic gold bamboo door knocker earrings is vintage 90s.

How dope is this? A four-finger ring and high top sneakers give that pre-millenial swagger.
