Uma Thurman’s Black Dress and Red Necklace in Pulp Fiction

Grunge was a staple of 90s style, and no one did it better than Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. Mia Wallace stole our hearts as the badass mafia boss in this Tarantino film, but part of her appeal was definitely her fashion choices.

We particularly loved her edgy take on the little black dress.


This look can be easily replicated with a tight-fitting black maxi dress, patent black pumps, and a black choker with a red pendant.

Britney Spears’ Mini Skirt and Knee High Socks

It was in 1999 that Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time” topped the charts. In part, the song was super catchy, but the music video (and specifically the outfit Spears’ wore) also played a major role in the song’s success.

Unleash your inner sexy schoolgirl a la Britney Spears by pairing a black mini skirt with a cropped white blouse that’s tied at the front, a red bra or bralette, knee high grey socks, and a grey cardigan. Style your hair into high braids tied with pink ribbon, and add pink pom poms to the top of each braid for the ultimate Britney look.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pink Gown and Diamond Choker

The outfit Gwyneth Paltrow donned to the 1999 Academy Awards is frequently cited as one of the best Oscar looks in history – and we can see why. The actress (who ended up winning for her role in Shakespeare in Love) wore a bubblegum pink, spaghetti-strapped gown by Ralph Lauren.

If you have any formal parties coming up and are looking for some 90s inspiration, Paltrow’s look might just be it. To achieve her ultra chic, ultra feminine outfit, you’ll need a baby pink floor-length gown (can be adjusted to a mini dress if you want a more casual iteration), a diamond or rhinestone choker with matching stud earrings, and a pink wrap.
