From the runway to your favorite retailers, there's no doubt that ‘90s trends are dominating the fashion world at the moment. The nostalgic styles first popped up in the streetwear and outerwear market, and slip dresses and logo tees soon followed. Now you can add cardigans and choker necklaces to that list, too. The difference is, however, those retro grunge-inspired pieces are getting a more sophisticated treatment this time around. No longer are you tying flannel shirts around your waists, piling your arms with rubber bracelets, or wearing a T-shirt printed with your favorite cereal brand. Instead, you’ll be styling all your favorite '90s pieces in new and more refined ways.
Mom jeans have become a wardrobe staple, though often topped with a menswear-inspired blazer or paired with ballet flats and sneakers. While you're still reaching for shorter necklaces of the choker variety, they’re more elegant now: think dainty metals or chunky chains. And cardigans are back and better than ever, but worn by themselves as a buttoned-up shirt alternative instead of an added bulky layer.
The fashion set’s reference point to the ‘90s may be in flux, but many of the trends of the throwback decade are still holding strong. Ahead, find the best ‘90s trends re-emerging in 2020 and get tips on exactly how to wear them.
