Remember Claudia Schiffer in high-waisted bikinis, Cindy Crawford in those sexy Pepsi ads and who could forget Naomi Campbell in her pre-temper tantrum hay day? The 90′s were an era of SUPERMODELS before reality stars and celebrities graced the covers of magazines. And way before fashion bloggers or Youtube sensations.
Last November, as I walked through Paris on my Savvy Sleepers Euro Trip, I spotted a used bookstand on the street with a Chanel Lookbook from 1995 chock full of Claudia Schiffer posed in crop tops and pastel mini skirts. As spring arrived, I couldn’t help notice how many of these trends are cool again. Here’s my Top 3 Tips to channel your inner 90′s Supermodel without alerting the fashion police….
The Scene ~ Frankfurt, Germany
1. Look for White Leather & Studs ~ White leather jackets and tops are a hot trend for spring paired with denim, black or floral print. Also, studded details on jackets and handbags scream ‘Totally 90′s!’ I love this one in white by TopShop.
2. How to Wear a Crop Top ~ From Rachel Zoe to Refinery29, the general ‘style expert consensus’ is only show a sliver of skin and avoid belly button exposure. High waisted skirts and shorts are your best bet for bottoms with a crop top.
3. Stick to Black & White Basics ~ The simple color combo is chic, classy and definitely reminiscent of Claudia Schiffer in the 90′s Chanel lookbook.

SOMETHING Extra ~ My friend Tanisha of the blog Lattes & Lipstick just launched a jewelry line called Lilith+McRae with a limited quantity of the ‘Black & White Buddha’ bracelet I’m wearing above.
