T-Minus 1 day...
Say what you will about Geri's dodgy highlights or Mel B's love for neon green, but one simple fact remains: the dress codes of the Spice Girls were era-defining.
Nineties nostalgia has long been in fashion (platform sandals are back, Latte lipliner is a best-seller for every brand, cycling shorts and bum bags are everywhere) but a direct recreation the most iconic looks isn't particularly appealing to even the die-hard fans.
So, in honour of the Spice World Reunion Tour, here we present how to update their distinct wardrobe with a slightly more grown-up appeal.
It's hard to think of Geri in anything other than that Union Jack dress, but she did have other statement outfits over the years. Mostly leather, usually with a feminist slant and almost always paired with red boots.
During a time when girlishness has been reclaimed as a political statement, and millennial pink was simply called pink, Baby Spice style takes on a whole new meaning. Today, short satin slip dresses and Buffalo boots should be embraced minus the infantilisation.
Proving to be ahead of her time, luxe athleisure has become a staple component in contemporary wardrobes and a tracksuit has been decreed acceptable for nearly every occasion.
The original queen of animal print, Mel B has a particular tendency for baring her mid-riff at any conceivable opportunity; low-slung leopard print onesies, leather jackets without a top underneath; animal print crop tops. Luckily for Mel, an abundance of clashing animal print is particularly on-trend – so feel free to go wild.
Though she won't be joining the rest of the girls on their reunion tour, we couldn't leave Victoria out. Transforming a black bodycon into something resolutely contemporary, Posh proved the true power that resides in a little black 'Gucci' dress. Remember: less is more.
