The streamlined black '90s-inspired ensemble is so easy to pull off.
Almost everything was big in the '80s...from the hair to the boxy shoulder-padded blazers to Princess Diana's iconic wedding dress. Exhausted and ready for a refresh, trendsetters — including Princess Di (hello, also-iconic revenge dress) — pared down their looks in the next decade.
Slim silhouettes in neutral hues offered less *lewk* and more polish. Think Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow on the red carpet in slip dresses and Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford sporting straight-leg jeans while off-duty.
While '90s minimalism may sound like a trend, the truth is, even in an oversized-everything world (like right now), the neutral palette and streamlined silhouettes are genuinely timeless. Just ask Kendall Jenner, who was spotted in a stretchy-but-slim black crop top and maxi skirt at the grand opening for OBB Studios over the weekend. Jenner finished the look with a pair of tall, long pointy-toed black boots.

Even Jenner's makeup was minimalist, letting her Bottega Veneta zebra pouch stand out. A similar bag retails for $4,500 if you're so inclined.
But you can get multiple versions of her entire outfit for less. Shop the sleekest black tops, skirts and boots.
