Fashion is known for its ever-changing trends. But #throwbacks containing a bit of ’90s nostalgia have led to a resurgence in fashion trends from that era. These were the things Millennials saw during their childhoods, and they’ve made everything from cycling shorts to crop tops and flannel hot again.
Let’s take a look at what’s been trending.
1. Fanny Packs
Fanny packs were all the rage last season, and they’re still holding strong in the collections we’re seeing for S/S’19. Chanel, Givenchy and Alexander Wang continue to devote their time to upgrading this uncool “uncle” hold-all. So, you gotta ask, who needs a clutch when you can have a stylish bum bag to keep your hands free?
2. Logo T-shirts
Logomania in the ’90s was a sartorial response to America’s economic boom, where donning clothing with flashy logos was a show of affluence and coolness. Today, logos are worn ironically, or have a streetwear vibe.
3. Matchy Plaid Coordinates
Plaids, be they Prince of Wales, tartan, gingham or tattersall, are ridic — in a good way. But don’t go all Alicia Silverstone ala Clueless (oh, those mini skirts… No, thank you). Wear a plaid pattern on a great pair of pants.
4. Cycling Shorts
Gym wear as casual wear is totally okay these days. Brands like Fendi, Mugler and Prada put an interesting spin (pun intended) on the athleisure trend by reintroducing the oh-so-popular ’90s cycling shorts for S/S’19 outings. But au revoir to leggings and sweatpants, because the bike short is the new athleisure staple.
