10 Fashion Trends That Survived the '90s

Moto Jackets

Moto jackets were all the rage in the '90s, and as it turns out, they have quite a bit of staying power! Today, you’ll see celebrities, supermodels, and people walking down the street rocking their leather jackets over girly dresses, tees, crop tops, jeans, or even over work shirts as a blazer alternative.

Floral Skater Dresses

With the swiftly increasing popularity of fall florals, you can see people wearing floral skater dresses year round. Skater dresses are very figure-flattering, and florals are super trendy, so we’re glad this trend has survived and thrived.

Flannel

Flannel is one of the biggest trends right now in 2015, and it was also a huge trend during the '90s grunge phase. I don’t know a single woman who doesn’t have at least one flannel shirt in her closet today.  (They probably more like four or five!) This '90s survivor goes swimmingly over tanks, tees, and dresses. It's also perfect on their own, so what more can you ask of a shirt?

Denim Jackets

Denim jackets are the epitome of the '90s, and because they’re so versatile and casually cute, they’ve never lost their appeal. Throw one over a sundress, and you instantly have an outfit that appropriate for church, a wedding, or anything in between.

Crop Tops

Fuzzy crop tops were pretty big in the '90s, and we’ve since expanded our crop top repertoire in recent years. Combined with the high-waisted bottoms trend, this is a match made in heaven. You don’t even have to show skin if you don’t want to, which makes crops tops and skirts, shorts, or jeans appropriate for just about any occasion.

Overalls

Who didn’t own at least one pair of overalls when they were a kid? That’s right, nobody. Now, these are hopefully making their way back into your closet, because they’re super trendy in all kinds of fabrics. Find one in your favorite denim wash or a variety of other chic fabrics, wear a crop top underneath it, and finish it off with a statement necklace.

Skirt and Top Coordinates

Love, love, love this trend otherwise known as two-piece dresses. I’m so glad this '90s style is still in our lives. These coordinates are sophisticated enough for the red carpet, and they're very fresh and modern. Plus since there are two pieces, you can mix and match them with other tops and bottoms!

Shirts Tied Around the Waist

I’ve heard this trend called a sort-of “faux peplum” because it gives the same effect without actually being peplum. The most popular way to style this trend is to tie a flannel shirt around your waist while wearing a graphic tee and shorts or distressed skinny jeans. It looks a lot cooler now than it did when '90s kids were using windbreakers in second grade.

High-Waisted Jeans

Some people love ‘em. Some people hate ‘em. I’m personally in the “love” category simply because high-waisted jeans are infinitely more comfortable and forgiving than low-rise jeans. And they look oh so chic with crop tops. You simply can’t wear any other style of bottom if you want to wear a crop top. Ignore the haters and rock on with this trend!

Mismatching Outfits

Fashion used to be all about looking “matchy matchy,” but the '90s proved that you don’t have to match to be stylish. That idea still echoes today, because not matching looks way more contemporary than painstakingly making sure your bag is the same hue as your shoes. Throw on a plum top, blue skinny jeans, leopard print flats, and a neon yellow clutch, and you’ll catch more than a few people admiring your sense of style.
