Anyone who knows me knows that I am excessively proud of being born in the 90s. Thanks mom and dad, I guess!
For me, the 90s were the Golden Years for almost everything: fashion, film, music, etc. Don't even get me started on the cartoons that were on TV throughout the decade. YES, I am one of those twenty-somethings who are overly nostalgic about their childhood. And no, I'm not ashamed.
Anyway, for quite a while now, 90s trends have been all the rage again. So I am obviously living the dream right now. Of course, not ALL trends were that great - super thin brows, I'm looking at you. But I do have a few favorites. These trends are the absolute best of the 90s in my opinion, I just love them. Check them out!
|1. TOPSHOP MOTO Vintage Mom Jeans // 2. H&M Mom Jeans // 3. TOPSHOP MOTO Mid-blue Mom Jeans|
Don't let the name fool you, mom jeans are one of the coolest trends around. You can find them in almost any tone of demin. High-waisted and SUPER comfortable, these jeans are an absolute 90s favorite!
|1. Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Cinnamon Swirl // 2. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry // 3. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga|
Vampy lips were a big thing back in the 90s. And thank God, the trend is back. I absolutely love it! I think this shade suites everyone and can help any outfit looked pulled together and sophisticated.
|1. BCBGeneration Faux Pearl Choker // 2. Boohoo Rhea 90's Stretchy Tattoo Choker // 3. Boohoo Melika Plain Velvet Choker|
I can't even express how obsessed with chokers I am. I remember when I was about 6 years old, the cool and older girls in my school would wear them and I would just stare in awe. Sixteen years later, chokers are a huge style staple for me.
|1. Rock and Rags Ribbed Skater Dress // 2. Opening Ceremony Women's Clos Short Sleeve Flare Dress in Black // 3. New Look Green Ditsy Floral Bardot Skater Dress|
I have a confession to make: I own more skater dresses than pants and I love it. Skater dresses are feminine yet casual and can be worn in any temperature (for colder days just add tights!) Nothing screams "90s" louder than a floral skater dress paired with Dr. Martens.
|1. Glamorous Grey Ribbed High Neck Crop Top // 2. Glamorous Light Blue Cropped Fluffy Jumper // 3. TOPSHOP Petite Exclusive Striped Crop Top|
Crop tops are the perfect sidekick to high-waisted pants, shorts or skirts. They're also pretty versatile since you can find them in various forms; sweaters, tank tops, or plain t-shirts. Oh, and they also let you show some skin comfortably. See, Kelly Kapowski loved them so you just can't lose with crop tops.
|1. H&M Pleated Skirt // 2. MADEWELL Inkcheck Mini Skirt // 3. Blackfive Asymmetric-hem Zipped Slim Plaid Skirt|
Yeah, I know what you're thinking. CLUELESS. Well, you're right. Clueless marked an iconic moment in 90s fashion. Plaid skirts were practically Cher's everyday uniform and no wonder why. To this day, plaid skirts are a style staple. They're just amazing.
|1. Miss Selfridge Cable Knit Jumper in Cream // 2. New Look Orange Jacquard Stripe Turtle Neck Crop Top // 3. Boohoo Lara Turtle Neck Short Sleeved Top|
When I was little my mom convinced me of wearing a turtle neck sweater for my birthday party because of the cold and well, because she used to pick my clothes. I hated it. But I honestly have to say, turtle or high neck tops have grown on me quite a lot. I think they're classy. Now that I actually dress myself I choose to wear them.
And there they are! These are my favorite fashion and beauty trends from the 90s. Thank God they came back, am I right? What are your favorites? Talk to you soon!
