Anyone who is into their fashion, can’t have failed to notice the shops are currently saturated with 90s gear. From crop tops, to Cat boots, check shirts to bomber jackets, it’s all about reliving your awkward teenage years, but in considerably more stylish fashion than the first time around.
So, it was with great concern, I found myself emanating a certain 90s music video with my clothing choices of late. Yes, my current style inspiration is the Take That boys’ holey jumpers from the Sure video. Pretty specific, I’ll admit, but somehow this look seems completely fresh in 2012 – 18 years since the boys rocked them (badly) in the 1994 classic.

So, the good news is that there are plenty of options out there in order to recreate this look. However, what is key to remember is that this was not considered stylish at the time and still isn’t now, what matters is HOW you wear it. My recommendation is to buy oversize and pair it with some patterned leggings and ankle boots. There are plenty of tie-dye, print, panelled and high-shine leggings doing the rounds at present so be daring and bring back the holey classic! Here are my favourites.
