    The bucket hat is making a definite comeback and this version, which features plain black on one side and a houndstooth check on the other, gives you two looks in one.

    3. This petite faux fur backpack.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    Mini backpacks are a fun, practical trend piece for everyday use. This leopard faux fur one is perfect for winter and looks way more expensive than it is.

    4. This celestial colour-changing mood ring.

    Etsy / Via etsy.com

    Mood rings were the height of cool in the '90s, and this Etsy shop stocks the vintage adjustable rings in a variety of styles. This crescent moon and star design is cute even before you add in the fun heat-sensitive colour element.

    Price: £3.00 plus shipping on Etsy.

    5. This extremely wearable brown MAC lipstick.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    There's a reason MAC lipsticks are perennially popular: they're high quality, with great pigmentation and a creamy texture. This shade of pinky-brown is neutral enough to wear during the day yet sophisticated enough for an evening look. This mini size is perfect for even the smallest bag, but it's also available in full size and in a matching lipliner.

    Price: £10.00 on ASOS.

    6. This fashion-forward chain belt that's also available in a plus size version.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    This black faux leather waist belt adds an edgy touch to any outfit, with a ring and chain detail that's a major upgrade to the '90s wallet chain look. Available in UK sizes 2-4 - 16-18.

    Price: £16.00 on ASOS.

    It's always great when accessories are this chic and available in a wider range of sizes! Available in UK sizes 16-18 - 28-30.

    7. This sweet butterfly necklace.

    Urban Outfitters / Via urbanoutfitters.com

    Butterflies were everywhere in the '90s, and this delicate gold-tone choker is a subtle, sophisticated take on the motif.

    Price: £14.00 at Urban Outfitters.

    8. This universally-flattering Fenty Beauty lip gloss.

    Boots / Via boots.com

    We've come a long way from the sticky, gloopy lip glosses of decades past, and the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb is one of the best of the current era. The high-shine gloss is available in three different shades that are each meant to suit any skin tone, it can be worn alone or over your favourite lip colour, and it has a rich, conditioning formula that hydrates your lips while making them pop. Heads up: the gloss does contain shimmer and has a sweet peach-vanilla scent, which may not be for everyone.

    Price: £13.60 at Boots.

    9. This multipack of fishnet tights that are also available in larger sizes.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    We're well into tights season, and while fishnets may not keep you very warm, they look great and are at least better than going bare-legged in skirts and dresses in colder weather. You can also style them so that they peek out under ripped jeans. These well-reviewed tights are available in packs that combine different mesh sizes and patterns, so you're set for all occasions. These tights are designed to fit sizes XS - XL.

    Price: £6.99 - £7.99 for a pack of five, depending on colour and style, on Amazon.

    And the plus size version is designed to fit sizes XL - 4XL.

    Price: £5.99 - £7.99 for a pack of four, depending on colour and style, on Amazon.

    10. These platform heels that show that snake print can be a neutral.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    These faux leather statement platform sandals are a little bit '70s, a little bit '90s, but ultimately very now thanks to the beige-and-tan snake print design. Stand tall in these five-inch heels but rest assured that the front platform will make them feel much more manageable.

    Price: £40.00 on ASOS.

    Available in UK sizes 2 - 9.

    11. This velvet choker with a ring detail.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    Velvet chokers have become a wardrobe staple but this version is anything but basic. The open silver ring gives it a touch of bondage collar realness without being too risqué for your workday.

    Price: £5.00 on ASOS.

    12. These tortoiseshell hair claws.

    ASOS / Via asos.com

    These understated hair clips make it easy to pull back your hair in a variety of styles. Although they're small and lightweight, each one can grip quite a bit of hair.

    Price: £4.00 for a pack of six on ASOS.

    13. These rhinestone stick-on face gems.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Live your Euphoria fantasy with these grown-up versions of the stick-on gems you used to put on your ears and/or face in primary school. Hot tip: these stickers are self-adhesive but for long-wear results, use spirit gum or a skin-safe glitter fix glue to stick them on.

    Price: £8.99 on Amazon.

    14. This utility bum bag.

    Urban Outfitters / Via urbanoutfitters.com

    This bum bag with convenient pockets can be worn in true '90s style around your waist or in the more of-the-moment crossbody style. Available in purple, black, and beige.

    Price: £26.00 at Urban Outfitters.

    15. These throwback enamel hair pins.

    Urban Outfitters / Via urbanoutfitters.com

    Price: £3.00 for a set of three at Urban Outfitters.

    16. These patent platform boots.

    ASOS / Via asos.com
