In case anyone was looking for an excuse to show off their abs, here it is! Crop tops are truly the perfect way to keep our summer vibes going, by showing a bit of skin even during the cold months. This cute staple piece looks great paired with a denim jacket or for cooler weather, a chunky cardigan. Go for a white one like Jennifer Love Hewit for the perfect twist on a classic white t-shirt.

 

Bandanas

Clearly, bandanas are no longer for cowboys. This ’90s trend was all the rage back in the day, and luckily, it’s back on the scene. To get the look, all you have to do is wrap your bandanna around your head and secure it with a snug knot. Pair with a band tee and high-rise cutoffs like Candice Swanepoel, and you’ll totally nail the model-off-duty vibe.

 

Overalls

Overalls might have started out as a farmer’s uniform, but let’s just say that they’ve come a long way since then. This cute one-piece look was big in the ’90s, thanks to its effortlessly cool look. Thankfully, the overall is just as beloved today and can be found all over the hottest street style blogs. Go for the denim variety and pair with anything from a cute band-tee to a chunky knit sweater. It’s that simple.

 

Round Sunglasses

Throughout the decades, sunglasses in all shapes and sizes have gone in and out of style. However, round sunglasses seem to have stood the test of time, and are just as popular today as they were back in the ’90s. Rock a classic pair of Raybans like Taylor Momsen for that uber-cool “I’m with the band” vibe.

 

Flannel Shirts

If we could design the ultimate fashion item, it would be trendy and comfy at the same time. Well, luckily we don’t have to invent that piece, because it already exists. The flannel shirt has long been a favorite of celebrities, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Worn open over a tee and jeans with some bedhead waves, this grungy wardrobe staple is perfect for achieving that “just rolled out of bed but I’m nailing it” vibe.

While everyone has their own unique style, there are a few select fashion items that instantly tell the world you’ve got style. One of those pieces is the Doc Martens boots, which have been cool since way back in 1947. Some things are classics for a reason, and this stylish shoe is no different, whether you rock the original boots or the Oxford style that Kendall is wearing.

 

Chokers

Denim Skirts

If there was ever an it-girl piece, it has got to be the denim skirt. This staple is perfect for giving your outfit that flirty but casual touch. Luckily, there are so many different ways to rock a denim skirt, but we love the way Bella Hadid is paying homage to the ’90s by rocking an itty-bitty mini length, with plenty of rips and frayed edges.

 

Adidas Sliders

Cardigans

This piece is perfect for dressing up your usual t-shirt and jeans, or for dressing down that sparkly dress that you’ve been dying to wear to brunch. Basically, it’s an essential wardrobe staple and we’re so glad it’s making a comeback.

 

Biker Shorts

This trend might seem very recent, but actually, people were rocking biker shorts back in the 1990s! Today, celebs like Emily Ratajkowski are huge fans of this athleisure closet staple and are frequently spotted rocking them on a daily basis.

Fitness and athleisure are really in style these days. So it’s not really surprising that these chunky white sneakers are making a comeback! The ’90s staple is reminiscent of our old Bratz dolls with their chunky platform shoes, so that’s a major plus in our book. Style your pair with an oversized t-shirt dress and tinted shades.

 

Cat-Eye Sunglasses

It’s okay to be a little catty sometimes! These cat-eye sunnies were all the rage in the ’90s, and thankfully, they’re back in style. Pretty much every prominent fashionista has rocked these super flattering shades, including style blogger Alexandra Lapp, who paired hers with a monochrome look.

 

Mom Jeans

There’s a reason why mom jeans have stood the test of time. Inspired by soccer mom fashion in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this super flattering fit has gone on to become one of the most popular types of jeans. More relaxed than skinnies, mom jeans are the perfect way to get that high-rise vintage look, which Gigi Hadid pulls off flawlessly.

 

Mini Backpacks

Finally, a trend that is both practical and super cute! Bring some fun ’90s chic into the office by ditching your usual tote bag for a mini backpack. Luckily, these come in so many fabrics, whether you go for canvas or denim, or rock a leather one like model Laurijn Bijnen.

 

Black Leather Jacket

If there’s ever been a piece that screams it-girl, it’s definitely got to be the black leather jacket. Just as essential as the little black dress, this closet staple is the perfect transition piece and can be worn pretty much all year round. Whether you rock it over a silky slip dress or a black tee and jeans like Hailey Bieber, you’re doing it right.

 

Hair Scarves

Sometimes we love our outfit but feel like it’s just missing that extra oomph. Thankfully, hair scarves are back in style, and we couldn’t be happier! Wear yours wrapped around your head like a headband, or tie it loosely around your ponytail. No matter which way you style it, you’ll feel that vintage Parisian vibe in no time.

 

Headbands

One of the biggest struggles is waking up in the morning and realizing that it’s going to be a bad hair day. Luckily, headbands are back in, so our lives are saved! This old school accessory was our favorite when we were kids, and it’s still the best way to look put together in a snap. Try a chunkier style like J-Lo, or go for a more simple thin band.

 

Sheer Shirts

Back in the day, it wasn’t about flirty cutouts and plunging necklines, but about how sheer you could go! Show some skin the old school way like Chrissy Tiegen did, by going for a sheer top. Keep the look classy by going for an all-black ensemble, and you can get away with this barely-there trend on any occasion.

 

Chain Belts

Not all of us are ready to rock a full-on grunge look. Luckily, you can get into this beloved ’90s trend simply by adding some accessories! A chain belt is a great way to add a touch of heavy metal to an otherwise work-appropriate look. Pair yours a classic dress like Kristen Stewart did, or rock it with jeans and a tee.

 

Combat Boots

Is there anything more stylish than a pair of combat boots? We think not. Luckily, this old school trend is back in style, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Whether you pair yours with a flirty dress or a pair of denim cutoffs like Russian model Xenia Tchoumitcheva did, combat boots will make you look ultra-confident no matter what.

 

Fishnet Tights

Fishnet stockings used to have a pretty risque reputation and were normally reserved for club nights out with the girls. However, a lot has changed since then! Today, fishnets can be worn just about everywhere, from brunch to business meetings. For a girly look, try flaunting yours under a cute mini dress, like Italian model Bianca Balti did.

 

Flare Pants

Needless to say, we are super psyched about the resurrection of this old school trend! Rising to popularity in the ’70s and making a brief comeback in the ’90s, flared pants have pretty much the most flattering cut known to mankind. While model Kaia Gerber always looks tall and beautiful, rocking a pair of these elongating pants sure doesn’t hurt.

 

Platform Sneakers

Look like a Bratz doll all day long by rocking a pair of platform sneakers. This ’90s trend is making a comeback, and we couldn’t be more excited!

It’s no wonder they’re a fave of fashionistas everywhere like Lebanese model Jessica Kahawaty.

 

Tracksuits

If you want to make a statement with eye-catching pieces, sparkles and sequins are not the only way to go. Velvet is a great way to add some shine to your outfit while keeping it cozy and casual. The good news is that this fabric is super versatile. Go for a velvet bodysuit, or try a snappy two-piece set like fashion influencer Alexandra Lapp did.

 

Tie-Dye

Yet another trend that started in the ’70s and was revived in the ’90s: off-shoulder tops! This bohemian chic look is the perfect way to show some skin, even when it starts getting cooler out. Complete the look with a pair of simple pair of jeans or black pants like actress Dakota Fanning did, and you’ll be good to go!
