The 90’s are making a comeback in my favourite way. No, we’re not talking about camo jeans, diamanté mesh slides or neon track pants (thank god). Although, I have to admit, I did love the zip-off pants that doubled as shorts back in the day. Instead, we’re talking about With Jéan low rise skirts, corset tops and lace detailing that looks cool instead of cottage-core delicate.
I actually just came back from an event in Auckland where they talked about all the old styles we used to love and have had a comeback in 2023. I feel like my Mum now saying “we used to wear those back in the day”, but it’s true. There’s been an influx of vintage inspired outfits that are finally back in fashion. And while I’m partly horrified that I’m at an age where I can say “I wish I kept these from back then”, I’m also loving the re-emergence of trends that I’m familiar with.
In saying that, second-hand pieces from that era that still work today are hard to come by. Trust me, I went op-shopping for 5 hours last weekend. So I thought I’d share so of my favourite pieces and outfits that are a nod to the past but with a modern spin. From one of my favourite brands, With Jéan, of course.
With Jéan has done the 90’s trend so well. Their latest collection is a great mix of vintage prints and lace detailing, but in cool silhouettes and modern cuts. They’ll maybe even, one day, be the pieces you’ll have wished you’d have kept in your wardrobe.
Miles Corset & Skirt Set
First up, we have the Miles corset and skirt set. This two piece set is so easy to wear when you want to look stylish without much effort – a perfect brunch or bar outfit for those summer days. The low-waist skirt can be dressed up with heels or kept casual with sneakers, and the corset top adds an elegant touch. Especially in this vintage tapestry sort of print. Especially paired with the Djerf Avenue type oversized blazer.

The Sabrin Top is a 90’s inspired bandeau top with lace and ribbon detailing. I’d style it with oversized blue denim jeans, pendant necklace and pointy sling-backs (as above) if you want it to make it very 2023. But, you do you. I personally love this outfit the most. It’s one that’s perfect for drinks with the girls, or a hot date night out, depending on what shoes you decide to wear.

Cindy Corset Top
The final look is this one featuring the Adeline Top. This style is one that they’ve reproduced a few times and I love the new coloured ribbon detailing that you can get now. Depending on your style, there’s the more basic all white, seen here styled with a maxi denim skirt. Or, if you want to lean in to the 90’s era, the green ribbon is a must.

Overall, With Jéan has really nailed the 90s trend in a modern way. I’m loving their take on vintage styles and it’s been great to see what pieces are out there for someone like me who loves a good throwback moment. It’s so refreshing to be able to find that perfect blend of classic cuts with contemporary looks that don’t feel overplayed. So if you’re ready to give any of these 90’s inspired outfits a go, With Jéan is definitely a great shout.
