90's trends and fads criselda

  1. 1. Image Source<br />When it comes to the Hanson-worshipping, Doc-Martens-wearing, Lisa-Frank-loving days of the 1990s, I'm glad that there are a lot of fashion trends that have been laid to rest in their dusty cardboard box graves. But, as I thought of all of the 90s trends that are making comebacks right now (jelly shoes, plaid button downs), I noticed that although many of these trends are awesomely bad, that doesn't make them any less awesome. <br /> <br />Image SourceSlap Bracelets<br />If pain is beauty, slap bracelets really drove that point home. Wearers smacked these cardboard-like strips  on their wrists, and, like magic, they would curl around and fit their wrists perfectly. This feature resulted in pretty much everyone slapping their wrists and undoing it over and over again like hyperactive children. Not exactly utilitarian, but it was fun. And the colors! And funky patterns! They were basically the style embodiment of the spirit of the 90s.<br /> <br />Overalls <br />Can't find the strength to put on pants and a shirt? Or even match the two? Then overalls should be right up your alley!<br />Image SourceScrunchies <br />They were neon. They were patterned. They were ginormous. But, mostly, they were horrifying. Girls piled them on their wrist and in their hair, usually in a swept side ponytail, sometimes accompanied by the classic poofy fringe. Carrie Bradshaw once said no self-respecting woman would ever wear a scrunchy in public, but American Apparel is trying to revive them with the above ad campaign. Eek. Sorry, that's one point for Carrie.<br />   Image Sources<br />Exposed Midriffs<br />From the cropped shirts and overalls of Saved By The Bell's Kelly Kapowski to Britney Spears's shiny neon tube tops, the 90s loved displaying its tummy skin. Especially when that skin was topped off with a belly button ring.<br /> <br />Image Sources<br />Baggy Pants<br />For a while, the baggy pants trend was focused on Hammer Pants and Skidz, those wild balloon pants that would hardly even be acceptable as pajamas now. After that fad died, guys decided the next logical step was to buy jeans so baggy that they could easily fit their entire body in one leg. But, to be reasonable, they threw a belt on, although there was usually still a good seven inches of their boxers hanging out. In the words of Cher Horowitz, "Ew. As if!"<br /> <br />Image SourceToe Rings<br />Talk about being bling-ed out from head to toe. I can't really say anything else besides that toe rings popularized foot jewelry. Jewelry ... for your feet. Wow.<br />
