Hold on to your fanny packs, ‘90s fashions are back! If you lived through the 1990s, you might not be so thrilled about the new fashion trends. But even if it’s not your first time rocking a scrunchie and slide sandals, you can still find your own spin on the latest throwback trends — and Ohio Valley Goodwill is here to help!
Here’s how to get started:
Laidback weekends call for flannel shirts (tied around the waist, of course) and crop tops. Or, go for an oversized graphic t-shirt and acid-washed jeans. The hottest styles are a callback to the days of grunge bands and “mall rats!”
The easiest way to start weaving trendy pieces into your current wardrobe is to look for items you can incorporate with the pieces you already have. These items can all be thrifted, of course! Shop at Goodwill for plenty of comfy, casual options, such as bike shorts to pair with oversized tops, or even overalls, which can easily be styled up or down. These styles are so versatile that something as simple as a shoe swap will create a whole new look.
On the professional side, trendsetters are loving the classic ‘90s power suit. Look for double-breasted blazers, oversized jackets, and even cropped versions — all in a rainbow of colors. (Yes, bright color blocking is also back!) Pair them with matching trousers, or mix and match to create your own suit style.
Also on-trend right now are cardigans and touches of velvet, both of which were must-haves in the ‘90s. Plus, whether you like it or not, pant legs are getting wider. After several years of form-fitting dress pants, wide-legged versions are making a strong comeback. When styling wide leg pants, choose tops that are more structured or form-fitting. They’ll balance your proportions and create the illusion of longer legs.
You can’t embrace your inner Cher Horowitz (that’s a Clueless reference) without accessories. Shop for tiny glasses, bangles, chokers, bucket hats, mini-bags, or fanny packs. Keep in mind, in the ‘90s, people were more liberal with accessories than in other decades, so don’t be afraid to layer them on!
When you shop at Goodwill, rocking the latest throwback trends doesn’t have to set back your wallet. Look for new or vintage items at your local Goodwill store and give these styles a second chance. The best part – you can try out just a few of the latest styles, or give them a different spin than the first time around. And if you’re new to ‘90s fashion, bring someone with you who lived through the decade. You just might learn something!
