’90s Style Guide
With chunky trainers, high waisted jeans and crop tops being a huge trend at the moment, it’s easy to be experiencing some déjà vu. We’re seeing people from all generations donning the scrunchies, acid wash jeans and using bandanas as a cheeky t-shirt alternative. ’90s style is back in a big way, here at MandM Direct we’ve picked the best ’90s styles to rock with no low rise jeans insight.
Love them or hate them chunky trainers have made a huge comeback this year, brands like Ellesse and Umbro are your go-to for bold and colourful chunky styles. If you’re not feeling brave enough to rock a more out there chunky trainer, Reebok Classics are a more wearable everyday style favoured by celebs like Kendrick Lamar and Gigi Hadid. Whether you prefer a flatform or a sportier style we’ve got your chunky trainer needs covered.
In the ’90s, bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam were to thank for the popularity of the effortlessly cool hip hop grunge look. To recreate grunge style a Flannel or plaid shirt is a staple, it can be worn unbuttoned over a t-shirt or tied around the waist, while a pair of Converse add to the casual vibe.
You only have to watch one episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to know that bright, bold patterns were huge in the ’90s. Patterned T-shirts are a wearable way to rock the trend while a patterned two-piece is more daring.
Crop tops were a huge ’90s trend, with pop princesses like Britney and Christina Aguilera regularly rocking a crop top. Cropped polos and neon styles are a modern take on the crop top craze.
Denim, in general, was a huge ’90s trend, with a light wash and oversized styles being favoured. However, that look isn’t the easiest to pull off – a denim jacket and jeans in different washes are far more wearable whilst still being on-trend.
Look no further than Sporty Spice for your style inspiration here. Think jogging bottoms, casual t-shirt dresses and crop tops. With the catastrophe that is 2020, we all know too well of the comfort that jogging bottoms and loungewear brings. Umbro is a brand that nails the throwback sporty look. Pair with some butterfly clips for some really retro style.
Bucket hats became popular in the ’80s, through the hip-hop community, the popularity continued to grow throughout the ’90s with the item worn by celebrities and artists from Ghostface Killah to Liam Gallagher. Today a bucket hat is an essential part of the ’90s revival trend and can be seen all over festivals around the UK and even on the catwalks.
A logo or graphic t-shirt layered underneath a flannel shirt was quintessentially ’90s and a brilliant way to make a statement, something mens and womens '90s fashion was all about. At MandM Direct we’ve got a huge range of t-shirts from your favourite big brands at low prices.
