The ’90s grunge look has been making a come back these past few seasons. Which, if you ask me, is one of the better ’90s fads. I don’t mind the oversized flannel thrown over a tiny flower printed baby doll dress with Doc Martens look. In fact, it’s a look I do often. So contrary to popular belief, not all ‘90s fashion was so bad that it couldn’t be resurrected.
However, I thank my lucky stars that some of the trends I actually wore constantly (shame) in the ’90s have not made a come back. Tiny, all over the head buns for one… at the time I was super into Bjork and I was all about the futuristic hairstyle in her ‘Big Time Sensuality‘ video. I now know that there was nothing futuristic about it, at least I hope. Here are some more trends I would be happy to see stay in the past.
Leggings with Pucci-esque print.
Clarissa was the coolest. Blossom and her were my style icons as a kid. If Clarissa was wearing Pucci-inspired leggings, odds are I wanted them. If you ask me today what I think of Pucci-esque prints, I’d have to say that they are my least favorite patterns ever created.
That short sleeved tee over long sleeved tee thing.
I have no idea why, but I still find myself wanting to do this and I’ll have to slap myself on the wrist. It’s just awkward. If you must wear your favorite tee when the weather is not permitting, please put on a cardigan or something. Even a flannel if you’re trying keep it ’90s. Remember how they made shirts that were like this, no actual layers, just long sleeves sewn into short sleeves? (LOL)
Tight mesh printed shirts.
First of all, I had something like this and I never wore it because the fabric felt weird. I remember it having absolutely no give or stretch, so you can forget about being comfortable post cafeteria lunch. Second of all, no. Just no.
Tight gelled crunchy curls.
I dare you to mention this trend to your hair dresser if you want to see them cringe. I have had so many conversations about this popular ’90s trend (unfortunately) in the salon with fellow stylists. We all agree, It ranks up there for worst ever, right beside the mullet.
Oh the shame!! I had every color of the rainbow, not to mention a couple pairs of those holographic sunglasses. Actually, the hologram glasses are still kinda cool, but no one should literally view the world through oblong or circle shaped rose-colored glasses.
Were you a victim of any of these 90′s trends?
