It’s safe to say that ’90s minimalism is in the midst of a fashion resurgence. The clean lines, neutral hues, and quiet restraint that defined the era have found new footing in fresh materials, updated silhouettes, and novel combinations that make for wholly modern mainstays. Few do it better than Giorgio Armani, whose signature (and masterful) fusion of earthy hues and fluid materials have manifested in a cool, cocktail-ready assortment of silk trousers, soft tuxedo-like suiting, and sleek slip dresses that have us planning our outfits for all the holiday soirées ahead.

Nothing says ’90s like a cropped leather top and long bias-cut skirt. Even better? The black-and-navy pairing.
