Fashion trend: Throwback to the 90s

Because what goes around, comes around…

We have news and it’s rather big. Hang on to your fanny pack because the greatest decade of all time is making a fashionable comeback. The freaking 90s are back! Fashion has always had a tendency of rehashing the past and it’s finally made its way back to the 1990s when Friends aired its pilot episode, Bill Clinton was President, Britney Spears was a good girl and the Macarena was invented.

Several style statements from the 90s are making their cute (some even ugly) presence felt and we’ve picked our favourite four fashion trends for you to adopt right away.
      Denim Dungarees or Overalls
Essentially made for farmers and mechanics, the dungaree soon trickled its way to everyday fashion in the 90s and it’s back this year, albeit in a skinner (perhaps even ripped) avatar.

Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) in Friends to Joey (Katie Holmes) in Dawson’s Creek aced the short dungaree with sleeves tops
      Crop Tops
Crop it like it’s hot, girlfriend! Midriff baring season is here again. For those of us not blessed with Kate Hudson’s abs, the good news is high waisted shorts/skirts or even mom jeans have time travelled their way into our lives.
Sometime it’s a turtleneck crop, sometimes it’s a tie up crop, either way this Britney Spears short top trend is hitting us one more time
        Plaid and Flannel
The lumberjack plaid pattern has axed its way to town. In skirts, shirt dresses, full sleeved shirts and even overcoats, plaid has played it cool since the 90s.
Brenda Walsh of 90210 (Shannon Doherty) and Cher Horowitz of Clueless (Alicia Silverstone) made the checkered plaid their own in the ‘90s
If you wanna be a fashionista, you gotta get with this trend.
When three of the five Spice Girls are donning platform trainers, you know they’re serious about this trend

Psst… while you are relishing the craze of the 90s, we suggest you go all out with Courtney Cox style Mom Jeans (Forever 21 on Myntra), Meg Ryan style Round Sunglasses (Sneak-a-Peek at Koovs) and Sabrina Spellman (the Teenage Witch) chocker (Labelkiss). But if you see jelly shoes and stick on tattoos, you know you’ve gone too far.
