'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.

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.

Yes and no. Parents should be a bit strict on you if they care about you.  If they care about you they would be strict.
