I face a constant inner debate about whether the 90s was an awesome fashion decade or a terrible one - the decade that brought us overalls, mood rings, chain wallets and necklaces with your name on a grain of rice. Saying that makes it sound really, really terrible, okay, but here area few things I want to see again... and a few I don't.
Shoes with lights on them. If you, like me, grew up in the 90s, all you ever wanted when you were in grade school was a pair of Spiderman light-up sneakers, and if you had them, you were really freaking awesome. These tight-ass badboys above are from L.A. Lites.
Tacky Neon Windbreakers. While I can definately embrace the awesomeness of these, these color schemes thankfully stayed dead unless you're in the backstore of American Apparel or at Igloofest. The piece above is by Nautica, and honestly, the more I look at it, the more I'm unsure about if I love it or if I hate it.
Snap Bracelets. Fucking SNAP BRACELETS. Wildest, tackiest prints that you can hit someone with and regret nothing. Today, I'd probably rock one of those fine emo prints, with the checkers or the skulls, just out of pure nostalgia. If you never liked snap bracelets, I assume you're probably an aspiring librarian (and not the cool kind) or a clerk.
Acid Washed Denim. Grunge was a big thing in the 90s, and the entire DIY aspect of acid-washed denim, like this jacket above, is beautiful to me. It's raw and you're sure to have a piece that no one else has. I could probably just make a whole post about the awesomeness of 90s grunge and photos of Kurt Cobain, come to think of it, but essentially this sort of piece is durable, cheap, and in a sense, kind of timeless.
