'90s Fashion Trends

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.

1: A. It'd be rude to neglect her; I'm also a nerd, though, so no big deal at all. 2: A. I'm shy anyways, and most of the popular gals at my school are repulsive with how narcissistic they are o.o 3: Uh, my friends wouldn't bully a random second grader girl, but if they were, I'd tell them to stop. She's just a second grader, and she doesn't need to have real low self-esteem already, or ever! I do notice younger children tend to be way more sensitive than older ones, so I'd make sure she's okay afterwards. That'd be so sad if a second grader really was being bullied tho ;-;

In the part where you said they started bullying you... what were some of the things they specifically said? If they were just calling you insensitive or racist, tell them it was an accident. You can apologize about the racist comment. If you show you really are sad about it, they'll know you mean it. I hope everything goes well and gets better ^-^
