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.
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.
90. overalls with the straps down
So awesome—whether you rocked it with one strap or both straps down. Also, it had to be Guess, or else you were just playing yourself. And if you really wanted to be cool, you wore no shirt underneath—Jodeci style.
89. Mood rings
Ok, so you got a mood ring at the mall and sometimes you wore it just to see if maybe it actually worked. It didn't. And it looked dumb. But it was a good conversation starter and if you were lucky, it lead to a few steamy make-out sessions with the hot chick from homeroom.
88. Skate tees
Alien Workshop, Hook-Ups, Toy Machine, Thrasher, Spitfire, Girl—the explosion in popularity of street skating lead to mall rats all over America rocking graphic tees with skate logos. You don't see them as much anymore, now that the flannel and chinos uniform has taken hold.
Before skateboarding had its foothold in youth culture, in-line skating was a close competitor. At least half of us remember hanging out behind the mall "going aggro" in our K2s because that's how we rolled. And really, rocking a wristguard made you feel like a badass.
86. Parasuco Jeans
The two stripes from waist to ankle showed you had the cash flow of the rappers who rocked them at the time, but looking back, we were rocking tuxedo jeans. Lulz.
85. One pant leg rolled up
I keep one rolled up like LL's pant leg. - Curren$y. If you thought going to jail was cool, then you probably rocked this look. The trend definitely started on some gang shit, but LL Cool J made it appeal to the masses.
84. Bike shorts
Hoop shorts were too short in the '90s, so guys started wearing these underneath. Then all of a sudden, fools were wearing bike shorts just on its own. Bam, new trend.
Teenagers everywhere know that in school, you're only as cool as the brands you wear. In the '90s, your denim had to be from Girbaud. Fancy fly required.
82. Bleached hair
Thanks to INXS, the term "Suicide Blonde" was introduced into everyday conversation. And thanks to Guy Fieri, this trend lives on.
