I know Iâ€™m not old by any stretch of the word, but manâ€”Iâ€™ve been having really intense nostalgic moments lately. Maybe itâ€™s because Iâ€™ve filled up all my spare time with Buffy episodes, or maybe itâ€™s because Iâ€™ve been thumbing through digital copies of Sassy at work (itâ€™s for research, Helen!), but lately Iâ€™ve been seeing visions of crop tops and pastel pants dancing around my head.
Some people have told me that they think â€˜90s style is really hard to define, which—IMO—is completely bogus. Imagine early Friends or the Babysitterâ€™s Club Movie and youâ€™ll get a pretty good idea of what â€˜90s fashion was. But, in a nutshell, the â€˜90s aesthetic was utilitarian, minimal and really wholesome.
Itâ€™s been making a quiet resurgence as of late, but that doesnâ€™t mean that all the pieces are up for grabs. Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s ok to try again, whatâ€™s definitely not ok, and whatâ€™s not ok but still holds a soft spot in our hearts.
