Throwback style has made a major comeback recently. Check out these 10 trends to see how you can incorporate 90s fashion into your wardrobe.
1. Layered Tops
The most famous version of this 90s trend is definitely the gym scene from Clueless. The iconic Cher Horowitz standing around with a skin-tight black tank over her tight white tee is the inspiration behind this latest fashion trend. Flashforward to 2019 and this trend has been updated to include silky, patterned or printed tops.
2. Plaid Pants
Originally this 90s fashion trend was reserved for large print plaid or baggy oversized pants. Now you can find fitted plaid in outfits from casual to business attire. Paired with a white tee shirt and a long overcoat this style is both comfortable and chic.
If there is one fabric that ruled the 90s it’s corduroy. From pants to bucket hats, coats and skirts corduroy could not be escaped. To bring this trend back into your wardrobe invest in a statement piece or two. A classic beige corduroy short, printed baseball cap or jewel-toned blazer are all items worth investing in.
4. Polo Shirts
Polo shirts in the 90s were the go-to fashion item of dads and golf lovers. Now, a cropped polo is a cute, updated 90s fashion trend that is both stylish and easy to thrift. To recreate this look yourself find a large fitting polo, crop according to desired length (leaving an inch for a hem), fold over the access fabric and either use fabric glue or sew in a new hem. For less than $10 you can have your very own cropped polo.
Once reserved for practical uses, overalls are now popping up everywhere. Whether your pair is classic denim, covered in patches, colored, linen or 100 other variations, overalls are a classic piece worth investing in. Not only is this 90s fashion very cute, but overalls are also filled with pockets making them a practical choice as well.
6. Platform Sneakers
If you wanted to pull off the grunge look in the 90s you needed to have a pair of platform sneakers in your shoe collection. Now, this 90s fashion has been upgraded and is decidedly less grunge. Fashion sneakers have been making a major comeback and a pair of clean white platforms are a trend you don’t want to miss out on.
7. Mom Jeans
At this point, you can buy mom jeans in most fast fashion outlets. Once a decidedly 90s fashion it easy to see that the mom jean has taken on a new life today. Although it is easy to find this trend in your local mall, look into buying used or vintage jeans for a more authentic, and eco-friendly look.
8. Tiny Sunglasses
When this 90s fashion returned it seemed to be reserved for models and influencers on your Instagram feed. Bring this trend to you with a pair of these statement shades. Remember that they are making a statement, so try and push out of your comfort zone a bit and purchase them in a color you wouldn’t normally try.
Comfy, practical and cute, who wouldn’t want scrunchies to return to the mainstream? This cheap fashion accessory is one that you will make you wonder how you lived without them. The easiest uses for scrunchies are to match your other 90s fashion looks or add some interesting detail to a plain pony. You can go as wild or tame as you want with hundreds of different styles available.
10. Graphic Tees
What’s more 90s than vintage graphic tee shirts that are from the 90s? Update these items by buying larger sizes from thrift stores or vintage boutiques and converting them into a dress. Pair with a denim jacket and platform sneakers and your 90s look is complete.
