9 Trends From the '90s That Are Making a Serious Comeback
If you thought the '90s were long gone, you're seriously mistaken. Popping up on runways and red carpets, these nine trends prove that not only are the '90 back with a vengeance but they might just be here to stay--whether we like it or not!
You can thank fashion gals like Cara Delevingne and Kristen Stewart for bringing grunge back into our lives. Thankfully, Doc Martens go just as well with your ripped denim cut-offs as they do with a pretty summer dress. Update the look with a floral print, like these ones.
Florals may seem a little ambiguous but the easiest way to know if your garden print belongs in the '90s is to ask yourself: Would Drew Barrymore wear this? If the answer is yes you've more than likely nailed this trend.
Rewind back to the days when you used to flock to the fabric store with your mom to pick out that perfect strip of black lace to tie around your neck. Thankfully the new choker has grown up since The Craft with updated versions coming bejewelled or in solid metals--with nary a Victorian cameo in sight!
Hallelujah for comfortable shoes! We were thrilled to find out that Birkenstocks are once again socially acceptable to wear outside the house. Just make sure you pick up a pair in a sleek white or metallic and pair them with sleek, linear clothing. Unfortunately, these are not the same Birks you wore with wool socks to camp.
Madrid Birkenstocks, $90.
Just when you thought you'd never hear the words OshKosh B'Gosh again, overalls are back. Admittedly, many of us wore these long after the days of diapers, either paired with a crop top or, gag, a hooded sweat shirt. This newer version is more tailored with a fit that flatters rather than hides the body.
If you weren't a fan before, you most likely won't be a fan now but crop tops have surprisingly come a long way since the '90s. Forget Britney Spears's belly-baring turtlenecks and instead picture Emma Stone at the Met Gala where only a sliver of skin could be seen between her top and high-waisted skirt.
Wilfred Free Liene tank, $35.
Who could forget how the girls of 90210 somehow managed to make ripped boyfriend jeans look sexy. Hitting the market once again, everyone from Jenna Lyons to Kourtney Kardashian are proving that borrowing from the boys is still in fashion.
Now here's one shoe we thought we would never lay eyes on again. Part of an exclusive collaboration with trend-setting Opening Ceremony, the Teva has once again made its way back into the fashion world. Updated with a metallic finish and additional strap, this is one revival we're not sure we missed.
