In 2018, one of the biggest fashion trends that the United States saw again was belted bags, also known as fanny packs.
It is clear that much of the ’90s fashion is back and many people are excited.
Before pulling out all of your old clothes, or your parent’s clothes, you may want to know what trends are here to stay, and which ones you should keep in the box.
Scroll down to discover ’90s clothing trends that have made a comeback, along with some that didn’t make the list.
Overalls were a trend that many people did not expect to come back.
However, overall pants, shorts, and even dresses are more popular now than ever. Some people still leave a strap hanging to stay with the trends, but as long as you have overalls, you won’t fall behind in the fashion world.
These are a fun ’90s trend because they are so versatile. They can be matched with practically any t-shirt pattern and some people don’t even wear a shirt with them!
Flannel has been around for a long time but was especially influential in the ’90s.
Besides farmers and people going to country festivals, there has been a high demand for stylish flannel shirts and dresses. They are perfect for the fall and winter seasons because they are an added layer of heat.
Oversized flannel shirts are currently popular and don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
3. Platform Shoes
Those that are daring enough to try them, should check out platform shoes to add a couple of inches to your height.
Sandals, shoes, boots, and heels are popping up on the shelves with some added height and are very popular. One of the more well-known groups that worn platform shoes were the goths, but the limits are endless in the year 2019.
4. Mini Backpacks and Bags
Mini backpacks and fanny packs were one of the most popular ways of carrying your belongings in the ’90s and has made its way into 2019.
The well-known movie, “Clueless” started a trend for these small bags that everyone seems to want. These bags are small, fit your accessories, look super cute and are easy to carry.
5. Slip-on Sandals
Slip-on sandals were quite popular in the ’90s and have made their way back onto the store shelves.
Birkenstocks and flip-flops, like Flojos, are comfortable sandals that are coming back into the fashion world. Comfort is an important feature to have then and now. Slip-on sandals are convenient and come in a variety of colors to match your outfits.
6. Skater Tees
Skater tees are one of the best ’90s clothing trends that have made an appearance in the 2010s.
Although skateboarding, rollerblading, and biking are still working their way back into popularity, the clothing is already here. Oversized t-shirts with skater logos and neon colors are once again popular.
Graphic tees are a fun way to show your personality and they are even including some of these designs on clothing materials like flannel.
If you are looking to pull out your old, vintage snapbacks, you are in luck!
Snapbacks have made a comeback and can be found at practically any store that sells hats. The Raider’s snapbacks were extremely popular in the ’90s.
These hats are comfortable, easy to customize and look cool when paired with other ’90s fashion trends. Baseball caps are still popular, but snapbacks are easy to fit your head and protect you more from the sun.
8. Ripped Jeans
Ripped jeans have been popular since the ’90s, but not everyone was ready for this trend.
Now that ripped jeans aren’t seen as inappropriate, as they once were, people are once again purchasing them. Ripped jeans add character to your clothing and pair well with simple shirts.
Be careful when selecting your jeans. Watch where the rips are located, as they may get larger. Faded jeans are also becoming more popular once again.
The faded and worn out look is trending in 2019.
’90s Clothing Trends That Did Not Make the Cut
Unfortunately, not all of the ’90s clothing trends made a comeback.
Manpris, or man capris, are one trend that didn’t make it to 2019. These shortened pants came in a variety of materials and were often loose-fitting. Manpris are now considered tacky by many people.
Another trend that you may have seen the fade in the fashion industry was the abundance of logos. Logos used to be everyone on clothing and some companies even used their logo as the design of their product.
Low- rise jeans were also popular in the ’90s and early 2000s. They likely didn’t make a comeback because of how much they expose and were uncomfortable. Mid-rise jeans are quite popular now, as they fully cover your body and keep everything looking smooth.
These Trends Are All That and a Bag of Chips
The ’90s clothing trends were so influential and popular, that they have made their way back into the stores nearly 20 years later!
Overalls, platform shoes, and skater tees have all made a comeback. Many people are using ’90s fashion to make statements because the pieces are often bold.
Before unpacking all of your clothes from the ’90s though, you may want to consider which items aren’t worth pulling out. Baggy jeans, manpris, low-rise jeans, and clothes covered in logos don’t seem to be trending anytime soon.
