90s Outfits: Inspiration & Ideas


Many fashion trends from the 1980s carried over to the 1990s, like the use of fluorescent colors on sweatpants, t-shirts, parachute pants, and jackets. The most common clothing colors were blue, green, orange, pink, and yellow, frequently matched together in patterns spurred by comic books and pop art.

Traditional looks for gals were crop tops, dark leather jackets with shoulder pads, baby doll style dresses worn over leggings, and colored or embroidered jeans, with slouchy socks, ballet flats, or Keds.

Outfits for guys combine bright t-shirts, denim overalls, colorful jeans, striped sweaters, and leather or letterman jackets, with slouch socks and sneakers.

"Well, first I wanted to be in a rock band when I was really young, and I decided in about, 3rd grade that I wanted to be a stunt man, so um, oh heck yeah, Evel Knievel was a big influence on that. I'd jump my bikes, and I took all my bedding and pillows out of our house and put it on the deck, and got up on top of the roof and would jump off. And I took a thin piece of metal one time, and duct-taped it to my chest, and put a bunch of firecrackers on it and lit em' on fire." โฃโฃโฃโฃ โ€” Kurt Cobain, 1992 โฃโฃโฃโฃ โœง๏ฝฅ๏พŸ: *โœง๏ฝฅ๏พŸ:* ๐Ÿ“ธ *:๏ฝฅ๏พŸโœง*:๏ฝฅ๏พŸโœง โฃโฃโฃโฃ Nirvana MTV Video Music Awards Edwin W.
