11 '90s Accessories We Were So Obsessed With & Should Consider Bringing Back — PHOTOS
There's no end of things from the '90s that we all miss. Snack foods, TV shows, gadgets, and music — it was a simpler time, when, like, the fact that your Tamagotchi lived was the highlight of your week. So you can imagine that the accessories we were obsessed with in the '90s were not exactly, how shall I say, timeless treasures. I mean, they totally were at the time, but now I look back at middle school pictures and it's like, for reals? Why does it look like there's a butterfly gathering on my head?
Some accessories from the decade have definitely made a comeback, but for slightly different reasons, like scrunchies. They aren't really cool from a fashion standpoint, but they're so much healthier for your hair. Other trends, though, have stayed in the past, and that is totally fine by me. Let's get nostalgic over them, have a few laughs and maybe even cries. I don't think anyone else would want to endure another decade of yin-yang everything, right?
In case you've forgotten (or are maybe just in denial), check out these 11 accessories that we were so obsessed with in the '90s. Warning: It will definitely spark some thoughts of "what was I thinking?!" but also some "I need to bring that back!"
