Thank You For Being A Trend: The ’90s Are, Like, Totally Back!


In fashion, as with boyfriends, what’s old is new again and the last decade of the 20th century is having a major moment. From boy bands to crop tops, head-to-toe denim to raver platforms, the 90’s are, like, totally back, you guys! Case in point, the model pictured from Jeremy Scott’s show is serving some serious Ace Ventura realness.

Allllllll righty, then! Here are five 90s trends that we’re happy are having a revival.

Boys in the Band


New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC (albiet briefly) have all made comebacks recently, thanks in part to new kids on the block like The Wanted and One Direction, proving that screaming teenaged girls turn into screaming 30-something women. Either way, panties will be flying at these boys cum men well into retirement.

Fab Girls Club

One of the best things about the Nineties was supermodels — that flock of Amazons who worked together, played together and served as George Michael’s beard together.  Back then, two Brits  — Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss — were the wild children of the catwalk, known as much for their hard partying ways as for their countless magazine covers. Today, two fellow Brits —  Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevingne — have become almost as infamous for liking to haves funs, and they even occasionally work, walking runways together from New York to Milan.

A Platform to Stand On

The 90’s raver stacked shoes are back in a big way. The main difference is… well they’re not neon and its not just the Spice Girls wearing them. These ones were shown in Paris from Piece D Anarchine.

Canadian Tux

Prestigious fashion house Balmian has also taken a page from the 90’s, notably the chapter on head-to-toe denim. If this is the hautest incarnation of that particular trend, then get out the house paint because a lot of people are going to be running around in overalls.

Children of the Crop


Good girls allegedly gone bad Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have been sporting crop tops and dad jeans for days lately, reminiscent of New Jill Swing R&B and janet.-era Ms. Jackson. Miley even switched it up, adding a little grunge-inspired plaid with her midriff: smells like tween spirit. And probably molly.

      The Balmian pieces look like they’re straight from last year’s Derelicte campaign.

      Pop culture is cyclical and is based on specific things: people in their late 20s/early 30s are being catered to because they have disposable income and a sudden awareness of their own mortality that spawns completely unwarranted nostalgia and nobody wants to acknowledge that.

      I mean, remember in the early 90s when your older sister/brother was totally obsessed with the 70s and we thought they fucking sucked? That’s you right now. You fucking suck.
