It may be the 2000s, but the 90s are back baby! Everyone get in your time machine, because this year’s fashion trends are full of mom jeans, high-waisted shorts, crop tops, and mini dresses. Don’t shoo away those scrunchies just yet—they might be your next go-to hair accessory when throwing up a messy bun on a hot day. Who knows what’s in store?

Fashion used to be all about what was fresh and new, but now people are bringing it back to the old days. It’s time to go dig through your parents’ closets because those tiny, thin glasses your mom used to wear in family photos and your dad’s old high school sports practice tee are the hottest commodities on the market! It may be hard to admit, but your parent’s fashion was and now is…cool. Here are some items to get on your next shopping spree to look just like Cher from Clueless and Rachel fromFriends.

Mom Jeans.

“Beauty is pain” is no longer in this year’s motto because comfy mom jeans are the trendiest pants this season. Companies like Levis, Reformation, and RE/Done have brought back the movement of slim but baggy jeans that squeeze your bod in all the right places. You can even add an oversized jean jacket to get that perfect jean-on-jean look and people will do a double take, as they might mistake you for a ’90s actress.

Mini Everything.

Daily Mail

From flowy silk dresses for a night out on the town, to little plaid skirts when you want to dress up for class, showing a little leg is in (but of course, keep it classy)! Pair this look with a blazer, sneakers, or boots and you are ready to go. Mini-everything can take you from day to night. Layering cap sleeved t-shirts or collared shirts under dresses will make you stand out! AS IF you would wear anything else!


Crop tops, little bralette tie-tops, and everything that shows your upper stomach are totally in! To all the girls who had dress codes in high school, and were deprived of being able to wear tops revealing your midriff, you are in luck! Pair a cropped button-down, tank top, or even t-shirt with high-waisted mom jeans and you will look the part! With crop tops, you can embrace your inner popstar like Britney Spears, or be more lowkey like Rachel Green in Friends.


No outfit is complete without accessories to match! Grab your flip phone, disposable camera, scrunchies, perfect strappy sandals, hair clips and you are good to go!

With these funky, fresh looks and accessories you will definitely be bringing the 90s back in style, while adding your 21st century flare!
