V Presents: ’90s Nostalgia
At the cusp of the 20th century, draped blazers and collared dresses claimed prominence among trends.
“Wannabe” by The Spice Girls echoes from the jukebox, a group of teens are battling each other in a game of Street Fighter II at the arcade, and you’re sipping on a milkshake at the diner in a sleek bomber—ah, the sweet smell of the ‘90s. An age of exploration and discovery, the ‘90s completely flipped the code of style on its side. Girls wore graphic band t-shirts under long slip dresses and men wore striped button-ups under denim overalls, combinations that had never been deemed appropriate in years prior. The ‘90s were a pivotal era that defined completely new trends across mainstream media and celebrated the idea of being different. Whether the decade reminds you of a black leather jacket with shoulder pads or a colorful babydoll dress with combat boots, the ’90s will forever have a prominent place in fashion history.
