Present day fashion is so influenced by 1990s style that if a studious alien life force were to land on our planet today, it might be reasonably confused as to which year it actually arrived. Still, this elder millennial remembers a key detail about the era that many Gen Z taste-recyclers seem to have missed: just how influenced the '90s were by the 1970s.

Arguably the most iconic face of the grunge and heroin chic era, Kate Moss, knows this well, and it's a lesson she's bringing with her into 2022. Heading to Cecconi's Mayfair in London this week, Moss wore the most '90s-by-way-of-the-'70s outfit we can imagine.

Her velvet blazer channelled Gwyneth in Gucci as much as it did Jimi Hendrix. Her wide-leg pants nodded to bell-bottoms and JNCOs alike. And her massive, face-shielding Velvet Canyon sunglasses served full Twiggy — with a side of Kurt Cobain. Even her ​​Chanel Reissue Double Flap Bag hearkened to the bag that was popular through both decades and worn by Coco Chanel herself.

This '90s queen is a '70s child at heart, and the good news is that this untapped source of nostalgic fashion is easy to find, with velvet blazers and flared pants starting at just $14 on Amazon. Shop Kate Moss-inspired retro trends, below.
