Fashion trends come and go, and what’s modern today could be outdated tomorrow. That being said, there’s something about ‘90s fashion that just feels so special. Trends from the decade ruled by Jennifer Anniston and Cindy Crawford seem to always find a way to be relevant, and right now is no exception—’90s trends are back and better than ever before. In case you aren’t clued in, these are the ‘90s trends making a huge comeback right now.

Slip dresses

That’s right—lingerie dressing is still very much in style. Stock up on the ever-flattering slip dress and pair it with just about anything.

Baguette bags

While they may not be as practical as those carry-all tote bags, baguette bags were the epitome of cool in the ‘90s, and definitely still are today.

Leopard print

Cat’s out of the bag! Leopard is in—every retailer is offering the print, on items like dresses, bags, shoes, and hats. Arguably, leopard had its heyday in the ‘90s, and the best iterations of it today are those that draw from that time.

Lace-up Boots

Military-esque cargo boots were a thing during the ‘90s (anyone remember the grunge years?), and still add a cool feel to outfits today. Use them to toughen up a sweet dress, or lean into the edgy look by pairing them with distressed jeans and leather.

Vintage-Inspired Jeans

Ah, ‘90s jeans. You know the ones. A bit loose, more of a boyfriend cut, usually in an acidic blue or light wash. Everyone from Julia Roberts to Naomi Campbell was wearing these in the ‘90s, and the silhouette still feels fresh today.

Leather Blazers

A perfect mix of edgy and sophisticated, a leather blazer is the leather moto jacket’s cooler, older sister, and will basically pay for itself in your wardrobe (it’s that versatile).

The humble cardigan is by far the underrated hero of sweaters. Wear a cropped cardigan buttoned as a top with jeans, or open over a strappy cami for a true ‘90s take.

Strappy Sandals

Strappy sandals had their moment this past summer, but the ‘90s shoe’s time in the spotlight isn’t over yet. The shoe’s barely-there straps let feet do the talking and add an extra touch of femininity to any look.
