People wanted to look dishevelled and flaunted their long, greasy locks. But, you didnt have to be a misbehaving dude to look grunge. Teens everywhere were sporting this look, wearing rock concert T-shirts under plaid, flannel shirts.Denim was also all the rage throughout the 90s. The bigger and more colourful the jeans, the cooler they were. Baggy jeans, made famous by hip hop stars, and coloured jeans in red, green or indigo were seen on every 90s kid. They could be worn in two ways - hooking one strap and letting the other hang open, or unhooking both straps and wearing a belt to keep the overalls from falling off.
The 1990s was the decade in which the world got a whole lot smaller thanks to a slew of technological innovations that changed the way people interacted with each other on an international scale. One of the first real revelations found in the science and technology of the 1990s was the emergence of the internet. MP3s, which were digitally-compressed music files, allowed anyone to share their entire music collection across the internet quickly and with CD-quality sound. Another important digital development of the decade in terms of entertainment media was the DVD. Cell phones shrank down to a pocked-sized marvel that enabled phone calls to be made from almost every possible location.
