Our top music videos from 1996, 2006, and 2016
Music videos both reflect and influence the culture of our times. As 2016 came to a close (thank God), 90s and 00s trends have continued to dominate our newsfeeds, wardrobes and wish lists. We’ve picked our highlight outfits from the videos of ‘96, ’06 and 2016 for some New Year inspiration and reflection.
Mabel: Thinking of You, 2016.
Summer of 2016 featured our girl Mabel’s aesthetically perfect mix of pastel walls, double-demin, Moschino, bombers, hoops and hoodies on repeat
Rihanna: Work, 2016.
A dream situation of Drake, pink lighting, plants and that outfit
Little Mix: Shout out to my Ex, 2016.
We spotted Perrie in our Baby crop, and added everything else in this to our summer wardrobe wish list. Including the car
Lily Allen: LDN, 2006.
In a Molly Goddard-esque tulle dress with hoops and trainers, Lily Allen fulfilled all our 2006 prom dreams in this love song to London
Nelly Furtato: Maneater, 2006.
How to go braless by Nelly Furtado / Hilary Clinton anthem
Paris Hilton: Nothing in This World, 2006.
If you’ve been about on our Instagram, you know we’ve got a thing for Paris and Nicole. In this awful / iconic love song to Herself, Paris kills on the outfit front but also kills our eardrums
The Spice Girls: say you’ll be there, 1996.
Inspired by Pulp Fiction, and starring classic 90s mini skirts, crops and chokers. The original Bad Blood video
Aaliyah: Hot Like Fire, 1996.
Ultimate Aaliyah inspiration for how to style our IP orange octopus pants and IP x Violetta Fancies You collaboration camo print PJS. RIP
Ghost Town DJs: My Boo, 1996.
This throwback has got us planning our summer parties and co-coordinated poolside outfits already
