21 Body Suits That Are So '90s, They’d Make Kelly Kapowski Proud — PHOTOS
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: The ’90s were my favorite era of fashion. You got to wear whatever you wanted, pairing crop tops with super wide leg pants, and you even got to crimp your hair. This summer, I’m banking on everyone wearing bodysuits that are so ’90s because the era is back in fashion. You'll definitely be the best dressed in the bunch, wherever you go. Just slap on one of these '90s-inspired bodysuits, a pair of mom jeans, and some cool sandals.
I was just a kid in the ’90s, but I did get to watch my three older sisters reach their peak awkward teenage years during this time, and wanted more than anything to steal everything they wore. Red denim with flowers all over them? Yes, please. Doc Martens and leggings? Sign me up. But mostly, I was super jealous of my sisters and their bright, colorful bodysuits that seemed to pair flawlessly with acid-washed denim shorts and platforms.
Now that denim, slip dresses, square-toed shoes, and flannels reign supreme, it only makes sense to upgrade your entire summer wardrobe to match this super cute aesthetic. For haters of bodysuits — I get it. They're hard to pee and change in, and not always ideal for the occasion (read: somewhere with limited bathroom privacy). But bodysuits are coming back full force and I'm all about it. Especially the ones that button at your crotch, making it extra easy to pee stress-free.
In honor of fashion's golden age, here are some bodysuits that our '90s-selves would've totally killed for.

Can we please, please go back to the '90s? I'm all for being iPhone-less and quantifying my love using Skechers and Prada backpacks. We don't have a time machine (yet), but luckily, I can at least dress like I'm back in the golden years again.
