90s fashion trends should they come back or stay in the past?

In my opinion, the 1990s was the best decade. The music was dare I say, iconic as well as the cartoons/sitcoms. The fashion trends however, eh, debatable.

If you were born before the 2000s you may remember the dreadful yet cute trends from the 90s.

Remember scrunchies?

If you’re like me, these are an absolute must. As a matter of fact, I happen to have one wrapped around my wrist right now. There was once a time where seeing scrunchies holding up a messy bun or pony tails was a thing in the past. Fast forward a couple of years later, and you wouldn’t see anyone caught dead with them simply for how big, bulky and perhaps tacky they appear until now. The year is now 2020, and you can’t leave your home without seeing people with these in their hair or just around their wrist like as if we have gone back in time. I can’t deny, these are quite cute and excellent for a lazy day where you want to throw your hair up and dress down. As I said, these are an absolute must.

Chokers have returned and people are really living for them

I cant lie, when chockers made their comeback I was not at all pleased. in fact, I actually hated it. They looked incredibly cheap and tacky. Almost like something you would win out of a quarter machine. Despite how much I couldn’t stand this trend at first, it slowly started to grow on me and now I have to admit that I actually own a few. The chockers are a tricky trend. I say tricky because, despite how ugly they look, they are actually quite cute as long as you have the right outfit to rock it with.

Like the legendary nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. If you want to give off some grunge vibes oversized flannel shirts are the way to go. lets not forget that the 1990s were the years of grunge music so of course edgy, angst flannel looks made this list. Even if you get too hot wearing a flannel, they are so easy to style that you can tie them up around your waist and still make a good fashion statement.

Crop tops made a HUGE statement in the mid and late 90s. Lets not forget big name pop sensation Britney Spears rocking them during performances and also making an appearance on the red carpet. Icons such as Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé Knowles, Gwen Stefani and also Britney Spears made crop tops staples of the era. Now, crop tops have returned and it looks like this trend is here to stay.

platform shoes

Platform shoes were a big fashion statement in the ‘goth’ scene. popular platform shoes in the ‘goth’ scene were the iconic ‘creeper’ platform shoes as well as platform combat boot. since these have made a comeback, the popularity in platform shoes seem to stay since they are easy to style in this particular scene and if you want to grunge it up a bit and style it with a flannel and cuff your jeans with them.

high waist mom jeans

I cannot express enough how much I wish this trend stayed in the past. The high waisted mom jeans were originally fashionable in the late 1980s and the early 1990s. Although, in the late 1990s and early 2000s you would see them still being worn but just very rarely. If you did catch anyone wearing them, it would mainly be by middle-aged women. In recent years since their comeback you mainly see younger girls wearing them, most of the time rocking a crop top with them.


since these top six trends have made their cameo appearance now in 2020, people really have found a way to make these trends look presentable and actually quite cute. I’m sure we can all agree that some things deserve to stay in the past but when it comes to fashion trends from the past it can be tricky. You just have to know how to style it right.
