11 '90s Clothing Trends That Have Come Back In 2017
Fashion, like history, repeats itself. You may have seen the revival of the '70s and '80s, but this time around it's all about the '90s fashion. Whether you lived through the trends the first time around, idolized them on your favorite supermodel, or only saw them on family classics Boy Meets World or Friends, one thing is for sure: 2017 is bringing them back in full stride. With 20 years well between the iconic decade and the present, there's no doubt that the return of the '90s is more than just a trend.
Leave it to the insta-famous models of today to recycle trends that our favorite supers, including Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Cindy Crawford, each wore the first time around. From spaghetti strap tops to platform sandals, there's a good chance you never thought you'd see the day when these trends would return and look as chic as ever.
While there are some '90s trends that haven't quite made as successful of a comeback (because, let's face it — some things are best left in the past), it's safe to say that there are some trends that the fashion industry just can't get enough of.
Take a good look at some of the 2017 versions of the most prominent trends of the '90s. You might just find a couple new pieces to add to your closet.
1. Spaghetti Straps

The '90s take on a cocktail dress, complete with a straight neckline. You'll be able to wear a dress like this to just about any event.
2. Crop Tops

This look isn't just for music festivals and summer time anymore. Unleash your inner Britney or Christina and let your midriff show. Pair it with some low-rise jeans, and you're practically a '90s girl.
3. Hoop Earrings
Dimitri Gold Hoop Earrings, $90, Adornmonde
If you thought hoop earrings were just a fad in the past couple of years, think again. This classic piece of jewelry is only coming on stronger since the last time they came around.
4. Platform Sandals
Platform sandals might have been seen as the chunky alternative to heels 20 years ago, but that doesn't mean they don't make for a great, comfortable shoe for nights out!
5. Oversized Denim Jackets
Why borrow your boyfriend's jacket when you can have an oversized version of your own?
6. Logo Love
From those fitted logo tees to Juicy Couture tracksuits and anything Tommy Hilfiger, it's all about knowing exactly what people are wearing.
These saucy stockings have made a huge comeback since their heyday in the '90s. Wear them under a skirt, dress, even your boyfriend jeans.
8. Lace-Up One Piece
Staud x Solid & Striped The Sophia One Piece, $168, Solid and Striped
Leave it to Cindy Crawford to make this swimsuit style one for every bombshell out there. Wear them with boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket for fall.
9. Neon Accents
High Impact Sports Bra, $15, Forever 21
An overflow effect of the '80s during the decade of clean lines and minimalism, neon is back and bigger than ever! Opt for something with a touch of neon if you don't want to go super bright.
10. Slip Dresses
What is '90s fashion without the slip dress? Once a fad and now a classic, you can dress this item up or down and any way you like. Slip dresses are the answer to any occasion's sartorial dilemma.
11. Round Metal Sunglasses
Olympic Sunglasses, $84, Bonnie and Clyde
The sleek and chic metal round frame sunglasses style of the '90s is back in a new and even more stylish way. With cool accents, like this pair's red mirror lenses and high-nickel framing, you'll happily be celebrating #tbt every day.
