The 90s were one of the singularly coolest, yet weirdest, decades in history. Thanks to a combination of tons of emerging kinds of music, movies and fads-a-plenty, it was a decade whose fashion was just as eclectic as its entire pop culture scene. It was awesome at the time, but looking back at these 20 fads has brought back some memories we'd rather continue to repress.
When the brand you wore was anything but subtle.
No Fear. No Fear for days.
You could NOT be seen wearing a backpack over both shoulders.
The Looney Tunes dressed up as the same kind of 90s kids we tried to be.
Seriously, what was the deal with golf visors?
Minidresses (though for some reason these never bothered me so much...)
The fashion trends just get weirder from here...
You weren't cool unless you had a pair of JNCOs that made parachute pants look like spandex.
I freaking LOVED my light-up LA Gears.
Platform shoes made a huge comeback, for some reason.
Starter jackets were a must, even if you never played a sport outside of gym class.
The sheer, unadulterated tastelessness of Big Johnson shirts.
Short sleeves over long sleeves (over short sleeves over long sleeves)
That "winning" combination of tinted sunglasses and a goatee.
We were all guilty of these next few mistakes...
I never understood what the deal was with bucket hats. Did you?
Oh god, Bugle Boy. I wish I could forget.
Because you needed to keep your wallet secure to your pants at all times.
Did we really need THAT MANY butterfly clips?
Shin-length baggy shorts (okay fine I still wear these sometimes...)
You couldn't be into rock music without a ton of plaid (thanks Kurt Cobain).
And of course, overalls over one shoulder.
What fashion disasters were you a victim of during your blunder years?
I think we can all agree that the 90s were a pretty awesome time. Between the TV shows, the movies, and all the epic music, there was no shortage when it came to quality products. Even if we can't agree on the best of the media world, there is something that all of us can agree on: 90s pajamas are the best thing to have ever existed. There has never been a time in your life that you were more comfy or cozy, which was great because you probably spent a lot of time in those PJs, right? Whether you
Listen, getting married in the 80s was kind of wild. Not only did you have to deal with the big hair, mullets, and mustaches, but the fashion was a whole other bag of worms. There was no way to predict how insane the dresses were going to look, but it was always safe to assume they would be pretty wild. Puffy sleeves, shiny fabric, and a lot of ruffles seemed to be the norm at the time. Let's not forget that return to the Victorian era that saw women trying to dress like an old-time princess. But, we brave the
Remember when you were growing up and you'd go hang out in the living room for hours and hours, never leaving your spot on the couch? Well, honestly I can't pretend much has changed, other than the fact that the couch has fewer flowers on it than ever before. Most people stick to a single color now, but back in the day there was apparently nothing more desirable than a good floral pattern. Big flowers, small flowers, pinks ones, or blue, every combination was waiting for you. We've all seen a lot of bad couches in our days, but when
I think we can all agree that we all have a bit of an obsession with our past. There's something special about the time that we grew up that makes us want to hold onto it harder and harder as we get older. Sure, maybe we are just trying to put off the inevitable, or maybe we are just finally capable of getting all the stuff we wish we could have gotten as kids. There's also the fact that now that we are now living on our own, we get to pick the decor and if we want it all
