Just (don't) call me.... Fashion Diva Extraordinaire

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:

THE TRENDS…

Butterfly Clips
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 reme
mber 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. <-------

Northern Getaway
The One-St
op-Shop for my back to school wardrobe every year. Oh how I miss the floral print leggings and baggy sweatshirts.

THE FAUX PAS…

Overalls
By far the most uncomfortable look of the 90’s, but still - I had a pair. Ugh, worse than wearing a one piece pyjam
a set.

Doc Martens
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.

Skants
A skirt…a pair of pants? A case of dressing in the dark? What (and
WHY!!) were they? I’m still confused ten years later.


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!

At my grade school we had a fad where everyone would wear plaid flannel pyjama pants. All the time.

They say all fads come around again---God I hope not. Overalls should stay with the farmers
