Gwen Stefani's '90s Style Is Extremely 2018
We find people typically fall into one of two camps: those who can remember playing Tragic Kingdom ad nauseam when the album was released in 1995, and those who weren’t born yet. We’ll make the assumption that most of us are in the former, or at the very least understand how huge of a pop culture icon Gwen Stefani became after No Doubt songs like “Spiderwebs” and “Just a Girl” hit the radio (yes, radio—it was the ’90s). And though the singer’s career has taken an inspiring arch since then, it’s Gwen Stefani’s ’90s style moments that make us feel like not much has changed.
Since Stefani is celebrating her birthday today—October 3—we thought we’d celebrate as well with a blast-from-the-past look at some of her ’90s outfits that feature some surprisingly popular 2018 trends. Cue up “Don’t Speak” and scroll on to revisit, and perhaps repurchase, them all.
Like Stefani, we are also big fans of a hybrid shirt and jacket. See: the shacket.
Up next, take a look at the three runway styling trends that looks great in photos and IRL.
