Thanks to the 90s hip-hop set, brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger proved to be significantly popular during the decade. Logo-covered jackets, sweatshirts and slouchy T-shirts were ubiquitous.

To emulate the style, go for a laid-back crewneck sweat with bold lettering like this one from Tommy Jeans. On your bottom half, opt for checked pants to give your ensemble a preppy edge. Finish your look with a casual pair of canvas sneaks in the same colour as your pants to keep your look uniform.

Behind every great streetwear getup is a solid piece (or two) of sportswear. The 90s menswear scene was preoccupied with steezy bits of kit, so channel the aesthetic by pairing various pieces together.

Go for a vintage-flavoured football shirt up top and wear it tucked into loose-fitting basketball shorts. Maintain the sports-focused vibe down low and don a pair of gum-soled kicks complete with tube socks. To round off your ensemble, opt for a boxy denim jacket and tie a plaid shirt around your waist for an era-appropriate final flourish.

Over the last few seasons, 90s skater style has fully made a comeback. Work pants, baggy jeans and graphic-print tees have become wardrobe staples for the sartorially savvy, so it’s a good time to get on board with the tropes if you want to up your style game for 2018.

Start off with a checkerboard print T-shirt – a signature pattern when it comes to skatewear – and wear your tee with a pair of wide-leg light-wash jeans. Pop on some retro Reebok kicks to add a streetwear edge to your ‘fit and tie a check jumper around your body to show that you’re skilled when it comes to playing around with prints.
