There’s a reason everyone’s still wearing trends and fads that come from ’90s history. From preppy, Cher Horowitz-esque checks to baggy, high-waisted jeans, there are some pretty iconic looks from the decade that we still incorporate into our wardrobes. Of course, our modern day approach means we’re either trying revamped silhouettes from designers who source inspiration from the ’90s, too, or that we’re gracing our outfits with a tinge of ’70s, ’80s, or ’00s for a mixed bag aesthetic.
That’s why we’re singling out 30 specific looks that definitely have ’90s roots, but breaking down the best methods for styling them right now. While that may mean shopping for a throwback item you don’t already own (OG sport sneakers with a recognizable brand logo? Pedal pushers that extend lower than a Bermuda short, but are not quite as long as capris? The perfect denim jacket for tying around your waist?) we’re sure you don’t mind curating a new list of must haves.
Ahead, see how stylish people all over the world continue to proudly sport tie-dye, cargos, biker shorts, fanny packs, tiny sunglasses, platforms, tube tops, track suits, slips, and more, and don’t forget to keep their hacks in the back pocket of your overalls.
