This Classic '90s Outfit Combo Has Officially Made a Comeback

There's no denying that the '90s had a big impact on the way we dressed in 2016. It's not just because we were—and still are—obsessed with chokers. We also saw a return of yin and yang jewellery, thanks to Alexa Chung's penchant for the design, which is arguably the most '90s thing to wear right now (short of doing your hair up in those little buns à la Björk circa "It's Oh So Quiet"). And that's all before we've even discussed the ubiquitousness of the slip dress.

But now, thanks to actress Naomie Harris, we have yet another '90s trend to wear. This time, it's the classic dress-over-trousers look, which we'll be more than happy to sport at our office Christmas party. But it's not just for people who work in fashion; there is a simple way to wear this look: Get your favourite dress, put it over your favourite pair of skinny jeans and you're done. Yes, it really is as easy as that, and, yes, it does look great on anyone. Keep scrolling to see Naomie Harris's full look and shop some of our favourite dresses right now.

Style Notes: This is actually a very simple outfit. Harris has matched her black shoes with her jeans, plus the black band at the top of the dress pulls the whole look together. 

Wear over blue jeans with a pair of pink mules.

Tights will work well under this dress, but skinny black jeans would be better.

The ultimate party dress.
