Now that I’m keeping this 90’s blog, I frequently visit the TeamSugar’s 90’s group site. Yesterday I came across a pretty cool discussion entitled “90’s Clothing: What Did You Wear”? A few replies made mention to the same types of clothing: overly baggy pants, knee highs and plaid skirts (a la Clueless), and of course those God awful spiral perms. I personally felt there were a few key styles of the 90's that still deserved mention:
Didn’t actually do much to hold things in place, but what was cooler than having pink and purple butterflies in your hair?? Nothing. I had them in every colour.
90’s Grunge Appeal
I remember the big high school kids passing by the fence at recess wearing over sized flannel shirts over top rock concert tees. Oh, and long tresses of dark greasy hair.
Back Pack Purses
Ahh, these things were the coolest! I know for a fact I never kept anything inside of mine. I remember my first one looked a lot like this. <-------
The One-Stop-Shop for my back to school wardrobe every year. Oh how I miss the floral print leggings and baggy sweatshirts.
THE FAUX PAS…
By far the most uncomfortable look of the 90’s, but still - I had a pair. Ugh, worse than wearing a one piece pyjama set.
Reeedonkulously overpriced ($100 a pair!) and they looked like freakin’ combat boots.
The Fanny Pack
Seriously, wearing these things made it look like you had two asses. One in the front, one in the back. ‘Nuff said.
There's tons more...Platform shoes, the return of bell-bottoms / "flares", snap bracelets, and tear-aways. But that's all for right now... I'm no fashion diva. I still wear my fanny packs!
