With a Spice Girls-themed musical in the works, and the resurgence of all-girl singing groups (thank you K-pop!), not to mention successful careers for many of the original group members, it’s clear that the Spice Girls are as relevant today as ever.
Approximately 1.5 decades since Geri, Mel B, Mel C, Victoria, and Emma made “girl power” a thing, the most awesome girl group in the world ever seems to be influencing wearable style in a big way – big as in super-crazy-tall platform shoes. Platform boots, platform sandals, platform sneakers… It’s almost like every pre-teen girl who spent hours unsuccessfully trying to attach styrofoam blocks to the bottoms of her shoes is finally being rewarded for her extreme efforts. Wait – no one else did that?
A quick peruse through some of our favorite online shopping spots led to a rather thrilling discovery: The Spice Girls potentially have a greater stronghold on the fashion industry than ever before. Glittery Union Jack boots? Yep. Open-front leopard maxis? Oui. Insanely tall platform tennis shoes? Ay. Pastel Baby-G watches? You guessed it… YES! So pop in your One Hour of Girl Power VHS (remember to blow into it first!), suck on a strawberry Chupa Chup lollipop (Posh’s fav), and click through our slideshow for suggestions on updating your wardrobe Spice-style.
