As we gear up for the Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot with the beloved Kiernan Shipka, it has us reminiscing about the fashion that was championed by the original television series. The show was ’90s fashion at its best, rife with crushed velvet slip dresses, platform sneakers, and flare jeans that revealed just the right amount of skin above your waistline. When Melissa Joan Hart wore them, though, they were cooler than ever. And it’s high time we revisit some of the trends she made popular on the silver screen.
From episode to episode, it was Sabrina’s whimsical approach to style that inspired us. Whether or not we were prepared to copy a look exactly as she styled it, the fun-loving sentiment was one we wanted to emulate—and we still do.
As the summer gets underway, we dug deep into the archives of Sabrina the Teenage Witch to find outfit inspiration that we can’t wait to try out in our everyday lives. There are layered shift dresses, athleisure looks, and brightly printed tops that we’re pretty sure originated decades before even Melissa took her mark on the stage. Get ready to be inspired and shop the below looks just in time for the world’s reintroduction to Sabrina Spellman.
Go for the polo shirt or mock turtleneck look in a print that screams the early aughts. But that’s not all: Pair your patterned top with a coordinated bright bottom, though opt for silhouettes that are more tailored than most to balance out the whimsy.
Shop the above to get a head start on the ’90s trends that are about to take over everyone’s closet this fall.
Whether a tank or turtleneck on top, there’s nothing more classic than a plaid skirt and slim top. It’s that schoolgirl vibe that continues on well into adulthood.
Channel your inner child with a fun-loving tie-dye top. Keep your look equally casual with the addition of your favorite pair of denim down below.
An all-black look doesn’t have to carry with it a city-slicker sentiment. In fact, athleisure lends itself quite well to the void-of-color trend.
When opting for prints, think outside the box in terms of color. Opt for tones of green, which aren’t seen nearly as much as they should be, and pair your patterned top with a similarly toned pair of chinos.
Layer like a pro with a bodysuit underneath a shift dress. Make your look pop with a bright red dress, but tone it down a little via a deep black bodysuit, no matter the neckline.
The going-out top is back, and we can’t get enough. With those slim leather pants, consider a textured camisole in a bright shade of blue to make an after-hours statement without going over-the-top.
