The 90s Inspired Heels We’re Wearing Now

Feeling nostalgic this season? Get your hands on a pair or two of 90s inspired heels and you’ll be all set.

Love or loathe it, the 90s fashion revival that we reared its head in last year is still dominating the fashion world. And while there are some trends from the decade that we’d rather leave there – we’re passing on dad sneakers, thanks – there are others that we’re certainly thankful to see the return of. We’re more than happy to see the denim world – at long last – move away from skin-tight skinny-leg jeans that have ruled for so long to a 90s mom jean, and we can’t get enough of the 90s-inspired slip dresses that have had seen a big resurgence.

Even though we might be forgoing certain 90s inspired trends, there’s one footwear fad from the decade that we don’t think we can own too many pairs of: the square-toed 90s inspired heels that have been spotted on street style stars right around the globe. If you’re yet to spy a pair of the must-have 90s inspired heels on your Instagram feed, since it’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere, you’re bound to see a pair pop up on the feet of your favourite celebrity soon.

Maggie Marilyn Makes Runway Debut with Dreamy Collection at New Zealand Fashion Week

It was the show on the New Zealand Fashion Week schedule that everyone was waiting for – Maggie Marilyn’s hotly anticipated runway debut. 

Despite the local fashion brand’s remarkable international success – the likes of Kendall Jenner and the Duchess of Sussex have both worn Maggie Marilyn designs – founder Maggie Hewitt made the decision to host the brand’s first runway show in New Zealand. “It felt really important for us to it here in New Zealand,” said Hewitt. “This is home and we wouldn’t be where we are without the constant support of our incredible local makers and supporters.”

And disappoint her local supporters Hewitt did not. The 24-year-old designer and her talented team transformed the Glasshouse in Morningside into a whimsical springtime wonderland that formed the backdrop for Hewitt’s ethereal and undeniably romantic collection. But it was really Hewitt’s talent for creating soft, feminine tailoring and a covetable colour palette that stole the show.

Take a look at our favourite pieces from the Maggie Marilyn show in the gallery below.
