The 90s style saw many long-lasting fashion trends that are making a strong comeback today. Several are now closet staples that I’m sure I’ll keep for years to come.
These vintage pieces can be worn in a variety of ways, and many have been updated with modern twists.
Influencers and celebrities have been seen wearing these trends and putting their own spin on them. I adore the casual-cool vibe of ‘90s fashion, as well as how effortless it appears.
1. Flared Jeans
Oversized crop top tee from New York, medium-wash boot cut jeans, chunky bright multicolored cardigan, pink crocodile shoulder bag, gold hoops
The first trend we’ll show you is flare jeans. This silhouette, along with any loose or oversized jeans and pants, is a 90s style classic. Flare jeans are also extremely versatile.
They can be dressed up for a night on the town or down for a day around campus.
The high-wasted fit of these flare jeans is fantastic. They have a vintage-inspired lighter wash and look great with this cropped graphic tee.
On top, I threw on this chunky, colorful knit cardigan. I’m in love with this sweater and the ’90s vibe it gives off.
It has a loose fit, an open front, balloon sleeves, and a drop shoulder silhouette. It’s fun and appropriate for this look.
I accessorized with chunky white sneakers, classic gold hoops, and the ideal pink mini shoulder bag. The purse goes perfectly with the sweater.
It is croc-embossed and made of patent faux leather. If pink isn’t your thing, it also comes in four other adorable colors.
2. Chunky Hoop Earrings in 90s style:
90s style Pink tuxedo blazer wrap dress, white chunky lug sole boots, chunky hoop earrings
Chunky hoop earrings are a ’90s trend that will never leave my closet.
I will not leave the house without a good staple hoop. Something about a thick hoop makes you feel strong and confident.
Urban Outfitters’ silver and gold hoops are a classic hoop with a fuller body.
They have a tubular shape with an open-ended end.
I paired them with this stunning hot pink blazer dress.
I’m obsessed with the blazer dress trend, and this one has an amazing fit and structure.
I dressed it down with some nude combat boots with lug soles.

3. Slip Dress + Sneakers
90s style Consists of a white mock collar blouse, an orange satin short dress, white Nike sneakers, a thick gold chain necklace, and tube socks.
A slip dress is the third trend that is currently being worn.
Slip dresses and sneakers were a popular clothing style in the 1990s.
Wearing them together is feminine and flirtatious while being casual and sporty.
The sneakers make the dress suitable for daytime use, but they can easily be replaced with heels or booties for a dressier look.
Abercrombie’s satin slip little dress comes in a stunning statement orange color.
I added a white turtleneck underneath for warmth, but you could also add some flare with a cropped denim or leather jacket.
Classic Nike Air Force 1s are the way to go for footwear.
The additional platform offers some diversity to the classic version.
I added some bright, stylish crew socks and a matching claw clip from the ’90s.
I completed the ensemble with a large gold statement chain.
Who doesn’t love the combination of a flashy necklace and a high-neck top?
4. Bomber Jacket + Jeans in 90s style:
90s style Black crop tank, faded mom jeans, oversized letterman bomber jacket, rectangular black sunglasses, chunky gold hoops, and black chelsea boots
The bomber jacket was a popular fashion staple in the 1990s, and it has just reappeared as a versatile new style.
This one from Boohoo is made of faux leather fabric and has an oversized fit with varsity-style embroidery.
The jacket is really fun and quirky. I believe it can be done in a variety of ways with simple pieces currently in your closet. Because the jacket makes such a statement, it doesn’t require much styling.
I paired it with a high neck, cropped black tank and the ideal pair of light wash, frayed Pac Sun mom jeans.
They’re high-waisted with distressing and rips all around.
The subtle wash lends a worn, old vibe to it as well.
I completed the ensemble with some clunky black Chelsea boots with a thick platform. To complete the look, add some thick-framed black sunglasses and traditional gold hoop earrings.
5.Overalls + Converse
90s style Consists of a brown button-up shirt, mint green overalls, brown chunky converse, and gold earrings.
Overalls are a fun ’90s fashion that is always being updated.
This mint green pair from ASOS has a straight-leg, loose style that I adore. They have pockets, button sides, buckle straps that adjust, and a classic cord style.
I wore a brown button-up shirt from Forever 21 underneath.
I adore the combination of neutral brown and light green.
These two colors work well together in an unexpected way.
These gold layered hoops for earrings are a twist on the standard hoop and give something extra to the outfit. Past. are you picking up on a theme with hoops yet?
Finally, in terms of footwear, these Converse sneakers are hands-down my current favorites.
They draw a lot of attention. They’re composed of tough leather and have a Sherpa-lined tongue. They also have a platform and an exaggerated, jagged sole for comfort.
This incredibly adorable two-tone brown sneaker will give this ensemble an upgraded, influencer vibe.
6. Trench Coat + Loose Jeans 90s Style
90s style Tan long sleeve sweetheart top, chunky baggy jeans, oxford loafers with lug soles, long tan trench coat, black backpack purse
Long, brown trench coats are a classic ’90s fashion trend that I’ve been seeing a lot more of lately.
The trench coat used to be a dressy garment that was only worn to work, but it is now much more casual.
This is an excellent Lulu’s coat because it is both adaptable and lightweight.
It has a wide collar, big lapels, and banded cuffs on the sleeves. It also has a sash belt to help you cinch your waist.
I wore it with a naked long-sleeve bodysuit and high-waisted, baggy pants.
Loose jeans are another famous ’90s fashion that is making a huge comeback. I accessorized with chunky black loafers with gold trim and a tiny black backpack.
7. Printed Dress + Sneakers
90s style Patterned tiny dress in orange, blue, and green, chunky brown cropped motorcycle jacket, white sneakers, tan handbag, and orange floral earrings
With its bright vibrant colors, ruffles, and mesh details, this patterned dress fits right into our 1990s theme. The straps are thin, the neckline is straight, and the silhouette is slip…
Everything reminds us of our favorite decade.
I layered this large brown leather jacket and this tiny nude purse.
The jacket reminds me of the ’90s grunge scene, and I like the idea of matching it with something more feminine. When it comes to ’90s fashion, opposites attract!
I completed the look with some platform white sneakers and little orange flower earrings, which bring a whole lot of fun to this ensemble. These earrings transport me back to my childhood!
8. Crop tops outfits inspired by the 1990s
90s style Light wash jeans, white and black chunky heeled booties, blue purse, silver earrings
Crop tops are a ’90s fashion staple that is here to stay! A crop top creates the prettiest look when worn with high-waisted denim.
This is an outfit I would wear in a heartbeat. This rhinestone-embellished cropped tee from Urban Outfitters would look great with these Abercrombie high-waisted denim jeans.
I finished the look with some white chunky-heeled platform boots and silver small hoop earrings.
This vivid blue cross body bag gives me the vibe I’m striving for in terms of a bag.
Cow print blouse, high-waisted medium wash denim shorts, off-white lace up chunky booties, scrunches
Scrunches are undoubtedly the most iconic ’90s fashion that has endured throughout time. They’ve gone in and out of favor, but they’ve never completely vanished. That’s a lot of staying power!
These Urban Outfitters scrunches are not only gorgeous, but they are also beneficial to your hair. Satin scrunches provide shine and strength to your hair. After all, there’s a reason people swear by satin pillowcases!
This adorable hair accessory was worn with high-waisted mom shorts and a brown and white cow print button-down blouse.
I finished the look with chunky, nude lace-up combat boots and mini gold hoops. This is a typical ’90s girl-on-the-go outfit.
9. 90s-inspired clothes outfit with chokers
A rose tank top, brown leather boot cut pants, brown heeled sandals, a see-through blouse, and gold layered chokers.
Chokers are undoubtedly one of the first trends that come to mind when thinking of the ’90s style. They, like scrunches, have gone through several phases over the years.
We’ve seen it all, from elastic tattoo chokers to cord versions to blinged-out charm necklaces. Chokers are becoming more sophisticated, and I am excited about it.
This gold layered choker from Free People looks great with high neck tops.
This bodysuit is worn with brown faux leather pants. I love the monochromatic look of the various browns and neutrals combined. Furthermore, the bodysuit’s high-cut neckline allows the choker to be the focal point.
On top, I layered a printed, sheer button-down blouse and some ’90s-inspired sandals. These are made of faux leather and have a heeled thong style in another adorable brown color.
Consists of a brown collared Henley, a plaid miniskirt, white and black loafers, black sheer socks, and a black headband.
Loafers are one of my favorite ’90s fashion items.
They have only recently begun to re-enter the mainstream. Lulu’s chunky platform loafers are extra adorable because they are white with a black sole.
With its retro-inspired form and tall sole, they scream ’90s style.
I wore them with this ribbed, collared Henley shirt and a brown plaid skirt. It has a soft, stretchy material and a slightly cropped hem. The skirt has a high-waisted fit and is made of a cozy woven fabric. It features an A-line mini hem, belt loops, and diagonal front pockets.
All you need for accessories are some polka-dot, sheer black socks, and an adorable knotted headband. The headband gives the outfit a girly and preppy vibe.
11. Cargo Pants 90s Clothing
Cropped brown sweater vest, oversized brown plaid shacked, black baggy jeans, black purse
Cargo pants are a trend that screams ’90s! You couldn’t watch the VMAs without seeing them on several celebrities back then.
Urban Outfitters’ low-rise pant has a relaxed fit, wide leg, and pocket detailing. I like the black color because of the reverse stitching on the seams.
I paired it with an oversized, neutral-colored flannel from Boohoo and a cropped brown sweater from H&M. This “boyfriend” flannel is ideal for layering. It has an oversized fit and a comfortable, casual feel thanks to the soft tailoring.
I completed the look with a black nylon belt bag and chunky silver mini hoops. This look has me completely obsessed!
12. Pleated Skirts
Consists of a white mock neck shirt, an oversized brown varsity sweater, tights, combat boots, a black pleated miniskirt, and a black shoulder bag.
This last trend is one of my favorites because of how girly it is while also being extremely edgy. Pleated skirts are a true 1990s staple that can be styled in a variety of ways.
This trend is clearly inspired by Clueless, which is one of my all-time favorite movies.
I paired this skirt with an oversized H&M varsity sweater. It has a V-neck and is constructed of a soft, cable-knit fabric. Underneath, I layered a white ribbed turtleneck and (surprise!) gold chunky hoops.
I chose a pair of black combat boots and sheer black tights to add some edge to the look. I adore the look of winter tights, skirts, and boots. It’s a tried and proven mix!
