I tend to disagree with the sentiment that fashion is constantly evolving. I’m more inclined to believe in the notion that fashion is constantly recycling.

I’d venture to say that somewhere around 2010 women simply ran out of new ideas and when you can’t move forward, why not look back?

A couple of years ago I remember the department stores I frequented most drawing wardrobe inspiration from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Essentially everything was either neon and spandex or flowing and floral. Floral happens to be a staple in my wardrobe, so I wasn’t complaining.

There is a definite nostalgia for the older generations when they see young people wearing clothing reminiscent of their youth.

As of 2014, it seems that our generation is pining for that nostalgia, because whether we wanted it or not—the 90’s are back with a vengeance. Everything from jewelry to hair is screaming 1995.

If you saved some of your childhood ensembles then go ahead and dust them off! If not, then get ready to purchase them all over again because it’s going to be another few months before the fashion industry finds another decade to claim as original work.

Talk a walk down Memory Lane with these ten 90’s trends:

Carrie Bradshaw once said that a native New York City woman would never be caught dead in a scrunchie—I tend to agree with her, but these colorful blobs are back on the up-and-up.

Platform Sneakers

Miley Cyrus isn’t exactly Ginger Spice but her converse platform sneaks are a perfect tribute to the former girl power advocates.

Farmer-chic will forever confuse me—it looks cute(ish) but good luck going to the bathroom in under 40 minutes.

Flannel Around The Waist

This wasn’t practical 20-years-ago and it still isn’t practical, but if an Olsen Twin does it—we have to assume it is fashion forward.

Crop Tops/High-Waisted-Jeans

Unfortunately this trend means we’re going to have to cut back on our carb load but it sure does pair well with some high-waisted jeans.

Colored Hair

Contrary to popular belief Kylie Jenner did not do this first. Miss Stefani was the OG of the colored hair game. Coming in second place would have to be Christina Aguilera—does anyone remember that Lady Marmalade video?
