90s Inspired Fall Fashion Trends
In the 90s I wore far too much black lipstick, lip liner and black period. I guess you can say I was one of those goth kids, skater girls or the average teenage girl aspiring to be like Gwen Stefani. It seems like just yesterday I was watching “Lunch with Jesse” on MTV and 3-waying my friends on my landline phone. I also remember hanging out in front of my middle school wearing my wide-leg Jnco Jeans (the wider the better), listening to Blink 182 on my CD player and trying to parent 5 Giga Pets.
Playing mommy to digital doggies was not an easy task! I spent my days cleaning up digital poop and trying to convince my parents to buy me a pair of Dr. Marten’s combat boots. All of the cool kids at school had Doc Marten’s and my parents didn’t understand what all of the rage was about. In efforts to save money to buy a pair, I sold custom friendship bracelets in the halls of my school.
Well, I never got my Doc Marten’s because I ended up spending all my money at the skating ring and buying tickets to The Buzz Bake Sale, a local all-day alternative music festival. But, judging by recent trends, I may get a second chance at those boots I have always longed for.
The Fashion Gods have official hit the rewind button once again and this time they stopped it on the 90s!
This fall, the 90s punks are returning with a vengeance and 90s inspired style were the craze at NYFW. At Jill Stewart models were spotted wearing cropped tops, and at Rag & Bone, models were seen sporting overalls.
So if you have been living in 90s nostalgia for the last 14 years (such as myself), this is your chance to relive the days when MTV’s “Road Rules” used to rule your TV screen.
A few trends that will make a comeback this season:
- Cropped Tops
- Dr. Marten’s (I will finally be able to cross these off my bucket list!)
- Baggy Pants
- Plaid Shirts (As seen on my last post)
- Studs (Seen here)
