To celebrate “Spice World’s” 20th anniversary, here’s how to copy the movie’s iconic ’90s fashion

January 23, 2018

Spice World has been a huge part of my life ever since it first hit theaters in 1997. And now that the iconic film is celebrating its 20th(!) anniversary, I have done a lot of reflecting on the inspiring, quirky, and female-empowering movie. Not only were the Spice Girls my idols growing up, but their sense of sisterhood, flair for expressing themselves through fashion, and for creating catchy and liberating songs really shaped the woman that I am today.

Spice World has been a huge part of my life ever since it first hit theaters in 1997. And now that the iconic film is celebrating its 20th(!) anniversary, I have done a lot of reflecting on the inspiring, quirky, and female-empowering movie. Not only were the Spice Girls my idols growing up, but their sense of sisterhood, flair for expressing themselves through fashion, and for creating catchy and liberating songs really shaped the woman that I am today.

Okay, so I know that might sound melodramatic, but they taught me what girl power is and how important and powerful it is. Each Spice Girl had their own voice, style, and personality, but they still came together and embraced their differences. And now more than ever, this movie is needed.

We could all use Sporty Spice’s IDGAF attitude, Scary Spice’s fearless and bold personality, Ginger Spice’s insight on female empowerment, Baby Spice’s kindness, and Posh Spice’s sartorial sense. So to get you in the Spice World spirit, here are five unique fashion ensembles that are similar to each Spice Girls’ during the film.
