5 Retro Trends That Are Back And Better Than Ever And Will Make You Proud To Be A '90s Kid

- Page 1

Guys, it seems like no matter how fast we run, we cannot escape 90s fashion.

Just kidding! Who would want to! The 90s had some of the best looks around, and we should honestly be honored that the young people of today still want to sport our epic styles.

It's well known that fashion is cyclical, and every few years all the things you once said was 'out of fashion' comes back, stronger than ever. Now, all your best 90s outfits are all the rage, and honestly we're a little disappointed that we didn't keep our original "vintage" items. As much as it hurts to call our childhood clothes vintage, you've got to admit, we would have had a jump on every single one of these styles.

Here's what the kids today are wearing that will make you wish you could revisit your 90s closet.

1. Small Pointed Glasses

While people have been rocking the over-sized sunglasses lately, the style is turning back to a more 90s-look. The popular styles seem to be smaller, sometimes even small ovals, and the colored lenses are even back as well. Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day when my blue oval sunglasses would be cool again!

2. Scrunchies


Honestly, this is just the best news. When I saw scrunchies were considered socially acceptable again I couldn't wait to bring them back. Granted, I am not about to go out and spend $100 on the fancy versions that are coming out now with their fancy new name of "hair clouds," but I will go to the dollar store and buy five of them for $5!

3. Acid-Wash Denim

Obviously, acid-wash denim was important. Not only did you need an acid-wash jean jacket, but you also needed acid-wash jeans, and let's be honest, you wore them together all the time. Denim was probably the most necessary fabric of the 90s. Chances are Calvin Klein's jean commercials were hypnotizing us and we just didn't realize it.

Brace yourself, because those aren't the only trends that will be back this year...

5 Fashion Items That Have Been Successfully Resurrected, And 5 We'd Rather Stay Dead

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or


Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
