They say history always finds a way to repeat itself and so does fashion. ‘90s babies know what we call one of the most iconic eras of fashion. The era where bell bottoms and a spaghetti strap tank top made headlines in the world of stardom.
‘90s fashion is one that has withstood the test of time. Most of your favorite trends today probably originated in the 90s. Leather jackets, bell-bottom jeans, and cat-eye sunglasses, all were born in the ‘90s. That being said, here are the top 5 items, originally from the ‘90s, that are taking the fashion world by storm:
Bell bottom jeans were considered one of the closet must-haves in the 90s. Frankly, they do beat all other types of jeans in terms of comfort. Bell bottoms were worn in all shades of denim, from dark to light, and often paired with multiple layered shirts and a bucket hat.
One of the sub-categories of bell bottoms is mom jeans. Mom jeans are straight-legged pants that hug the booty curve in a subtle but enhancing way. Maybe it was the comfort level of these jeans, or it was how stylish they looked that brought the trend back.
Baby tees are just really small t-shirts that look like crop tops except they are a tiny bit longer. The closest description possible is simply wearing a shirt 3 sizes too small. Baby tees started in the late ‘90s and paved their way well into the early 2000s.
Stars such as Megan Fox continued to rock these shirts as a part of her staple fashion. Baby tees often have some sort of graphics on them, whether it be from popular fandoms or positivity quotes in that extremely bubbly font.
Regardless, baby tees made a comeback in the early 2020s.
While slip dresses were a lesser-known trend of the 90s, they began to pick up popularity in the late 2010s and early 20s. Slip dresses are normally made of a silky material and are made to hug each curve perfectly. They come with spaghetti straps.
Slip dresses are normally worn on their own, or with a contrasting t-shirt underneath. Since they are super minimalistic, they are perfect for days you are running late. Slip dresses can also be paired with a basic leather jacket, pulling together a chic look in no time!
This was one of those trends that started receiving a lot of backlash in the mid-2000s but slowly gained traction back into trend. These rectangular glasses often come with a thick-rimmed matte plastic frame in pastel colors. While they do quite little to serve their original purpose of protecting your eyes from the sun, they hit the ball out of the park in terms of fashion.
The ‘90s were an extremely iconic time for fashion. The trends set in that decade are expected to keep repeating throughout history because of their aesthetics and simplicity.
