The 1990s saw the rise of hip hop culture, and the Internet. Fashion also changed dramatically during this time period. From the colourful clothes worn by TLC and the oversized T-shirts favoured by rappers, to the neon prints of the club scene and the bright, bold patterns that dominated magazines, the 1990s had its share of memorable styles – and now it is back with a force.
It is undeniable that ‘90s fashion has returned to the spotlight, completing the entire cycle to officially become cool again. If you are too young to remember the original version of the ‘90s, or are just looking for inspiration, read on for all you need to know to put together the ultimate ‘90s outfit. You can then head to a Supa Dupa Fly 90s night in London or a 90s bottomless brunch to show it off!
- Baggy cargo pants
The baggy cargo pants trend was huge in the early ‘90s. These pants were usually worn as an alternative to jeans, and were very popular among both men and women, and the preferred aesthetic of many celebrities of the time. They are extremely comfortable, easy to wear, and could be paired with almost anything, making them a must-have for any ‘90s brunch in London.
Another major trend from the ‘90s was the sweatshirt. Sweatshirts were first introduced into mainstream fashion in the mid ‘90s, but really took off in popularity over the course of the decade, and often came with large logos or band names.
They are still one of the most versatile pieces of clothing available today, and are perfect for layering over other items. As an added bonus, they are super comfortable!
- Neon prints
Neon prints were a huge part of the ‘90s fashion scene, and are making a comeback once more. Neon colours like pink, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, and red were everywhere in the early ‘90s, and were used in everything from shirts to accessories.
This trend has been brought back due to the fact that these colours are not only vibrant and eye-catching, but also make people feel happy and excited!
A choker is a necklace that goes around your neck, and is typically made out of gold or silver, although pointed black chokers were very much "the look" in the ‘90s – especially when worn with a high ponytail or bun. They add a finishing touch to the whole look, and offer that ‘90s vibe.
- Butterfly clips
Butterfly clips were a huge trend in the ‘90s, as well as the early 2000s. They come in various shapes and sizes, and are great for adding some extra bling to an outfit.
T-shirts were another key part of ‘90s fashion, and have continued their reign through the years. Whether you prefer a plain white tee, or something with a bold, graphic print, there are plenty of options to choose from.
- Slip dresses
During the ‘90s, slip dresses were a staple of everyone from Cher Horowitz to the babydoll Britney Spears. They are a perfect choice to recreate that ‘90s vibe, and have the added bonus of looking super cute!
- A great attitude
Girl Power reigned supreme in the ‘90s, so don't forget to head to your brunch with a great attitude, plenty of fierce fire, and the knowledge that you can take on the world – our ‘90s queens would be proud.
