'90s Fashions

If you were a teen in the '90s, "Phat!" and "As if!" were part of your daily vocab. You never missed an episode of Beverly Hills 90210 or The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and you grooved to the tunes of Nirvana, Bel Biv DeVoe or Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby. But what were peeps wearing in the '90s? Read on to find out the stylin' trends of this decade.

'90s Fashion: Cool Grunge

Maybe you'd rather run and hide than leave the house looking like you just rolled out of bed, but it was cool in the '90s. Peeps wanted to look disheveled and flaunted their long, greasy locks. But, you didn't have to be a misbehavin' dude out of Seattle (the birthplace of grunge music and fashion) to look grunge. Teens everywhere were sporting this look, wearing rock concert T-shirts under plaid, flannel shirts.

'90s Fashion: Cute Baby Wear

If you needed fashion advice, you could've turned to Cher, the fashion expert in Clueless (it was one of the most popular teen comedies in the '90s). The schoolgirl look of baby doll dresses with puffed sleeves and thigh-high stockings became popular because of this movie. Also popular were slip dresses worn over T-shirts.

'90s Fashion: Bright and Baggy

Denim was all the rage throughout the '90s, but not in the way you think. The bigger and more colorful the jeans, the cooler they were. Baggy jeans, made famous by hip hop stars, and colored jeans in red, green or indigo were seen on every '90s kid. Also popular were overalls, which could be worn in two ways - hooking one strap and letting the other hang open, or unhooking both straps and wearing a belt to keep the overalls from falling off.

'90s Fashion: Big Shoes

The '90s shoe could be described in one word - chunky. Kids stepped out in style with Doc Martens, Mary Janes or platform sneakers, which elevated you to new heights with layers of rubber sole. Docs, which are like combat boots, were definitely the most popular shoes. All kids, whether they were into hip hop or grunge, wore them to complete their outfits.

Ello and I am sorry your going through all this pain. Your  being strong for everyone else trying to put on the happy smiley face and at the same time your feeling so miserables.  You said in your post that you already does go to the type of therapy.  Is there any way you can talk to someone at the therapy sessions and say you need to talk about this? Sometimes you has to say you has the problem cos right now your giving the signal that your ok cos your hiding your feelings. Im the horrible advise giver but im the good friend and i care and if you wanna comment me then i will do me best to be your friend and listen :love
