Outfits in the 90s

Fashion in the 1990s was somewhat rebellious and carefree, especially for the youths. The grunge fashion was highly popular and minimalism was a major trend for the fashion. Funny thing is that some of these outfits which were considered to have faded out with the decade is suddenly making a comeback and becoming cool again. Below are some of the cool outfits that made waves in the 1990s.

Flared Jeans

The 90s was an era when people had preference for oversized and loose silhouettes compared to the skinny jeans we have today. These flared and wide-leg designs were casual aesthetics which made them a perfect fit to be worn during the day. They were also seen worn at night, complemented with crop tops. So, if you are looking to put on the 90s flared jeans as a lady for your themed party or Halloween, you should rock it with a crop top.

Crop Tops

In the 1990s, crop tops trended much. These are mid-riff tops that bare the lower part, exposing the waist or navel. Music icons of the era like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, the Spice girls and All Saints all wore crops tops on in their music videos as well as events. Lately, these tops seem to be in the trend again as you can see them rocked on the red carpet, runway, and even on the wedding aisle.


For accessories in the 90s, chokers were a fashion statement. They are close-fitting necklaces worn tightly around the neck. These necklaces are made from various materials ranging from plastic to velvet, latex, beads, leather as well as metals like silver, platinum or gold. You can beautify your chokers with pendants, sequins or studs. Chokers are back in fashion and you can get the perfect 90s chick’ look by adorning yourself with one.


These are the original jumpsuits. Most people who rocked in the 90s wore overalls. Why not? They were an essential element of the 90s fashion. These sleeveless denim jumpsuits became very popular casual wears for both ladies and gentlemen, and no longer just for the farmers. Blue overalls go well with a crop top and a pair of sneakers.
