7 style lessons from Angelina Jolie from the 90s that are relevant again
Today, June 4th, is Angelina Jolie’s birthday. The Hollywood actress and mother of six turns 45. Popularity came to her back in the 90s, along with roles in the films "Gia", "Hackers" and "Girl, Interrupted" – Angelina became a frequent guest at various ceremonies and social events. Today we offer to recall her images of the 90s and early 2000s and take note of the couple, because her minimalist style has stood the test of time, and many of those things are back in trend.
Since summer is in the yard, we offer to start with beach fashion. Scientists and politicians are still making cautious predictions about the complete lifting of restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus, but most still continue to dream of a full-fledged vacation.
If the situation with a trip to the sea is still unclear, then nothing will definitely interfere with sunbathing in a country house or balcony (except for rain, of course), which means that a swimsuit will still be an actual acquisition.
Beach fashion trends are now set by Bella Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner – their selfies from the beach are closely watched by fashionistas from Instagram to get themselves the same high-cut bikinis.

Bikini is, of course, a positive scenario for the development of events, if the summer really turns out to be hot, as weather forecasters promised earlier. Girls still have reason to be skeptical about these forecasts. On days of gloomy skies and temperatures below the climatic norm, there is also fashion advice from Angelina.

Angelina’s shoes are also worth paying attention to – square-toed shoes and boots are again at their peak, however, trendy wicker sandals are also perfect for a white suit.
This accessory has slowly made its way to the fashion Olympus in the last few seasons. But the collections shown at the beginning of this year were the final proof of the new reign of this trend from the 90s and early 2000s.
It is not at all necessary to wait for autumn, especially since the coronavirus has shown us that it is generally unreasonable to put off something until tomorrow. Tomorrow may surprise us all.
Therefore, we are extracting our teenage bandana from the depths of the closet right now and trying different styling options. After all, you can use it as a top (if the size allows), and as a belt, and as a bracelet. But if you still want an authentic look, as in those days, then we simply casually tie it on your head, like Angelina.
Classics of the 90s wardrobe, slip dresses were worn by all the main style icons of those years: from supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss to iconic actresses of the era like Winona Ryder, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Angelina also often opted for this feminine style when entering the red carpet, adding either a gothic mood due to flaps in the hem, or Hollywood glamor due to sequins.
