Winona Ryder: 90’s Style Icon

g

Today, Winona Ryder is making headlines for her outstanding performance in Netflix’s series Stranger Things, but she’s been one of my favorite actress since the 90’s. She starred in so many movies from my childhood that still hold special places in my heart. I mean – Reality Bites, Little Women, Edward Scissorhands, Mermaids and Girl Interrupted – I could go on all day! So obviously she’s a fabulous actress with a very hefty resume under her belt, but she is also one of the most notorious fashion icons of the 1990’s. Her style was often androgynous but always effortless. Chokers, slip dresses, blazer and cardigans abound. So without further ado (and because I couldn’t narrow it down to 10), here are a whole slew of Winona Ryder’s best 1980’s and 1990’s Style Moments:
