90’s comeback: 3 trends from the 1990’s that are back in style for spring
By Brittany Anas
The last time you wore overalls, you probably accessorized with a Walkman that was playing an Ace of Base cassette tape. Or Kris Kross was making you “jump, jump.” If you were coming of age in the 1990’s, you might be surprised that the kids these days, well, they’re diggin’ 90’s fashion. And not just the grunge, Nirvana look (because loose-fitting flannels will probably always be in rotation). But the kind of streetwear looks you’d associate with a TLC music video (yes, back in our day MTV played music videos) have made a resurgence.
Here are three trends from the 90’s that are making a major comeback for spring and summer 2014. Of course, designers have put some modern touches on these looks to make them relevant today. We’ve shopped these looks from ASOS — where you’ll earn an extra 6 percent Cash Back from ShopAtHome.com on your purchases.
- Overalls. In their 2014 reincarnation, the fit of overalls is much less stiff and much more flattering. We’re taking note of overalls that hit at the ankle, where they can be cuffed and worn with a pair of ankle booties. The bib front design on these black twill overalls (pictured) is more chic, less “I’m going to have my school picture taken, where’s my back up bottle of Rave hairspray?” The designer of these overalls is Little White Lies, a British line that draws inspiration from the 1990’s. We’re also keen on these black suede overalls that re-imagined with a more open back.
- Sunflowers. It’s funny how flowers are associated with decades. It’s not like sunflowers stopped blooming in the 1990’s and have just started popping up again. However, in fashion, sunflowers are the favored floral this season. You’ll find them on everything from hair garland, to adorning the ankle straps of sandals, to dresses, to skirts. Our favorite take, though, on the cheerful flower is a more subtle rendition: This pale yellow dress with sunflower-like embroidery in a modern fit-and-flare design (pictured).
- Crop tops. This trend emerged last year and is still going strong. We’re seeing celebs like Kim Kardashian embrace the look whole heartedly, pairing crop tops with pencil skirts. For a polished crop-top look, try the matchy-matchy trend that carries a matching design on top and bottom — like this ASOS Jacquard Zip Back Crop Top with a matching skirt.
