We are back in the roaring ‘20s. Some people might be thinking flapper dresses will come back into style, but that is not the case in the fashion world today. Though, stranger things have definitely happened. 

Social media users have been buzzing about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt reuniting at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. It’s true what goes around comes back around, but that doesn’t always refer to karma. This is also true in fashion. 

It’s amazing how a trend, something that might be considered “so ugly” at the time, could eventually come back into style. For example, in the early 2000s, UGGs were at their peak. When middle school started for most of us, people began wearing them with skinny jeans or leggings. This is also true of ‘90s fashion.

Hilary Duff recently posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing a black turtleneck, low-rise tweed pants and white Dr. Martens. If people really wanted to go crazy with that outfit of choice, they could add a fur vest or jacket to really emulate the ‘90s look. 

Tweed pants are not the only style of pants making a reappearance. The low-rise pant is also becoming quite prevalent, as well as flared jeans paired with a heel of some sort. The same is true of boot-cut jeans. 

Classic hoop earrings paired with aviator sunglasses and a high ponytail (possibly with a scrunchie hair tie) are also coming to the forefront as a product of ‘90s fashion. On the topic of jewelry, Carrie Bradshaw inspired name necklaces are resurfacing, in addition to monogrammed necklaces and cuff bracelets. 

Athleisure is another ‘90s trend that has resurfaced. It’s been a conversation starter recently, especially on the Netflix show “Explained.” Nowadays, people dress in athletic wear even when they are not planning on going to the gym. It’s true that comfort is key no matter what you’re wearing.

High-necked crop tank tops, another ’90s trend, are also made for athleisure. High-waisted leggings really compliment tank tops like these as well as lettuce-cut crop tops. More recently, people have been wearing lettuce-cut crop tops with overall jumper dresses. Crop tops also compliment sweatpants, for another athleisure look. For a more ‘90s hip-hop inspired look, pair sweatpants with a graphic t-shirt. 

From the looks of it, the ’90s are on their way back as we enter a new decade. If you’re looking for trendy outfits, try visiting nearby thrift stores, which may sell the now resurfacing apparel. While you’re there, you might find some other clothes to add to this upcoming fashion pattern.
