Icons

For some of us it doesn’t seem so long ago when Top of the Pops was overrun with Britpop bands, you had your hair cut like Rachel from Friends and Saturday night TV was about watching celebrities getting gunged. But believe it or not, enough time has passed for the 90s style to come swinging in with full neon glory back into fashion again.
.
As we all know with this decade, this is tricky territory, as a step too far can turn you into Edina from Ab Fab. So whether you were watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or Men Behaving Badly at the time, here are some fashion icons of the era you should be taking notice of if you want to get the 90s revival look right. Enjoy!
Cher Horowitz
Starting with the ultimate 90s fashion icon, Cher from 90s smash hit Clueless. The most popular girl in Bronson Alcott High School, she had the lifestyle, the attitude and was always perfectly dressed for the occasion – with the help of some awesome virtual wardrobe software that I still to this day wish I had. This summer, if you’re going to rock the 90s revival look, channel Cher and go for cute matching two piece suits for the office and a strappy top worn over a t-shirt for the gym.
.
Will Smith
If you’re a guy you have it easy, because Will Smith during his time starring in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is a one-man 90s fashion guide. If you’re not sporting a snapback cap and a ludicrously bright t-shirt you are most certainly not Da Bomb. This look may be a little tricky to carry off, but as long as you’re prepared to muck about with your mates, have fun and still be morally correct in the face of a sticky situation, then it’ll work for you – it worked for Will!
.
Gwen Stafani
Back when Gwen Stafani was still known as ‘that hot singer in No Doubt’, her carefree hippie-grunge attire made her even more popular for her leading fashion sense, on top of her singing talent. Take inspiration from Gwen by mixing and matching cultural styles by donning a crop top, a sari style skirt and wearing your hair up in multiple knots. If you get it right you’ll be an ultra cool summer babe, but beware of the accidental mono-brow effect bindi abuse can cause.
.
Clarissa Darling
I’m not condoning all of Clarissa’s looks, but Clarissa Explains It All pretty much showcased the whole spectrum of 90s fashion female and male (look up her best bud Sam Anders). So choose carefully from some of Clarissa’s many styles, most of all various quirky choker pendants, Dr. Martin boots, dinosaur earrings and shirts over strappy tops. Especially if you can source a gem like this Lichtenstein-esque cartoon strip patterned shirt.
.
Spice Girls
The Spice Girls deserve honourable mention. Being a huge influence of the times they went through many phases in fashion. In my opinion the best thing they brought us was the platform trainer. This love child of a PE trainer and a corrective shoe was made popular by the girl group in the 90s ensuring anyone brave enough to don this fashion accessory an embarrassing tumble at the school disco.
.
This year’s take on the casual platform transform sneakers, DM style boots and even jellies into platforms. You’ll be uber cool if you’re seen wearing them, just watch your step!
.
Kelly Kapowski
Finally, Kelly Kapowski was the most popular character in Saved By The Bell. Girls wanted to be her and guys wanted to be with her. She rocked the bralet and jacket combo, she owned matching floral crop top and trousers look and nailed the knotted t-shirt.
.
Although my personal favourite was Lisa Turtle who was always immaculately dressed and, let’s face it, was less flaunty. So what if Kelly got Zach Morris? Lisa was fighting off the boys, even if that was mostly Screech…
This is an exciting time for those of us who grew up in the 90s as we’ll finally get the chance to wear all the things our pocket money wouldn’t stretch to, or our mothers wouldn’t let us go out in. Who knows, maybe my VHS collection will be worth something and turkey dinosaurs will become a delicacy. We can only hope.
Get some 90s clothing of your very own! Yes we’d welcomed the amazing brand Hero and Cape into the TruffleShuffle family.
Starting back in 2011, Hero & Cape has a fab fun and tongue-in-cheek approach to pop graphics and authentic hand-printed clothing all with a 90s inspired design.
Screen printed by hand, each and every design is unique and lovingly crafted from the hand-illustrated designs to the manual screen printing on organic cotton. Amazing! Take a peep…..

Can you ‘Adam an Eve’ it?! Get ready to ‘Giraffe’ like never before as one of the most iconic and loved sitcoms which originally ran from 1981 to 2003 is back for a one off ten minute special this week!

You heard it right folks,  with a whole host of the original cast hitting the small screen as their classic characters once again, as well as some special gusts, this year’s Sport Relief if shaping up to be one of the most historic yet!

Over 10 years on from the shows last episode (amazing to think!), this latest script will focus around Del Boys birthday and promises to be packed with lashing of the original humour and personalities as ever before. We can’t wait!
Comic Relief CEO, Kevin Cahill, had this to say about the return:
“Only Fools and Horses is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. It’s incredible that those involved with the show since the very beginning have come together for this Sport Relief special and we’re especially touched that Jim and Dan Sullivan wrote the sketch together using some of their dad John’s old notes. To be able to record a new Only Fools and Horses sketch is in itself very special but for David Beckham, who is a huge fan of the show, to be part of this is truly brilliant.”
That’s right! Former England captain Becks, will be the star attraction as he rubs shoulder with the classic cast David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst.

Launching over on BBC One this Friday (March 21st), be sure to head on over and watch this amazing event and of course if you can donate to this amazing cause.

Re-live some of those classic moments in style with something from our amazing Only Fools and Horses merchandise range including cool mugs, dressing downs, and more….

That’s right peeps of the internets! It’s Roald Dahl day today and we’re busy celebrating one of the nations favourite authers in style with some of our fantastic retro Roald Dahl T-Shirts on and diving headfirst into the land of the man himself.

To help celebrate this big day, we’ve decided to pick out some cool Roald Dahl facts that’s hopefully you won’t already know, just to you can learn a little something new. Enjoy!

1) His first job wasselling kerosene in Midsomer Norton, he later went on to work for Shell while living in Kenya.

2) He was a Hurricane fighter pilot during World War II where he became a flying ace and intelligence officer, rising to the rank of wing commander.

3) He survived a plane crash! Struggling to find the airstrip, running low on fuel and with night approaching, he was forced to attempt a landing in the desert. The undercarriage hit a boulder and the aircraft crashed, fracturing his skull, smashing his nose and temporarily blinding him. He managed to drag himself away from the blazing wreckage and passed out. Later, he wrote about the crash in his first published work.

4) If not an Author, he’d liked to have been a doctor.

5) Born in Wales by Norwegian parents Harold and Sofie,  he was named after one of the most celebrated explorers in Norwegian history, Roald Amundsen.

6) He always wrote in pencil on yellow paper. Yellow was also his favourite colour.

7) Roald Dahl could speak Norwegian, English, and Swahili. Norwegian was the first language he learned to speak.

8 ) Roald Dahl’s first book was published when he was 27 in 1943. It was “The Gremlins”.

9) He was once punished by the headmaster at school after putting a dead mouse in a jar of gobstoppers at the local sweet shop. Naughty!

10) In the 1986, he was offered the Order of the British Empire (OBE), but turned it down, supposedly because he wanted a knighthood so that his wife would be Lady Dahl.

That’s all folk! We hope you had some fun and learned a few extra pub quiz facts. How will you be celebrating this amazing day in honour of an amazing man?
