Juice. SNICK. Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. TGIF. Wayne’s World. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Beavis and Butthead. Feeling nostalgic yet? We sure are. The ‘90s were a great time for pop culture and music, but the style wasn’t as on-point—or was it? Lately, we’ve been looking back at a time that for many of us here at Complex, were our formative years, and we’ve rediscovered a lot of the trends we forgot about. Plus, it always feels like past trends find their way back into the modern zeitgeist, from classic television shows being revived to iconic footwear that lived in the ’90s still thriving today. Even vintage fashion has become a novelty to many.
The ‘90s was truly a golden era for style and street fashion that continues to constantly be referenced today. One of Dior’s recent runways shows was a tribute to ‘90s Venice Beach style. And the success of massively successful streetwear labels like Supreme was built off rehashing many popular ‘90s clothing trends. Today, major brands like The North Face have revived jackets that were popularized by many East Coast rappers during that wonderful era. Even those crazy leather jackets from Pelle Pelle and Avirex have made a comeback recently due to how much love fashion still has for ‘90s looks.
In the spirit of reminiscing, we compiled what we believe to be the fashion movements, some short-lived, others that endure to this day, to come out of the ’90s. So throw on your most comfortable wide-leg pants, tie a hoodie around your waist, and flip that baseball cap backwards as we hit you with The 90 Greatest ’90s Fashion Trends.
