'90s Fashion We Can't Believe Is Back!

Get ready for some serious déjà vu.


You don't have to wear them backwards à la Kris Kross or with a strap unhooked (unless you're Crazy, Sexy, Cool), but long and short overalls are trending in a big way this summer. Swap out your boyfriend jeans for this throwback style and pair with a tank or three-quarter tee and some ankle booties for a modern, grown-up twist. $59.95, ae.com

This statement accessory adorned the necks of everyone's favorite vampire slayer, all four witches from The Craft, and even the babes from 90210. Wear this '90s staple now, either casually with jeans and a tee, or paired with a simple slip dress (another resurrected trend). $32, baublebar.com

Chunky Platform Sandals

Would Cher Horowitz be caught dead without a pair of ankle-strap platforms? As if! While she usually wore them matching with her ensemble and trimmed in marabou, try wearing this silhouette in black or nude as a playful alternative to standard pumps. $90, macys.com

Plaid Shirts

Would a '90s trend list be complete without this grunge kid staple? Today's revamp comes in softer color options and lighter fabrics that are a perfect layering piece for casual summer outings—like checking out a Nirvana cover band. $19.90, forever21.com

Aside from being slightly inconvenient when using the ladies' room, bodysuits were huge when Tiffani Amber Thiessen made them look rad in Saved by the Bell, and they're a great staple again. Whatever you pair them with (we love them with high-waisted jeans and skirts), they offer a smooth, no-bunch, no-ride-up alternative to a tucked-in top. Bonus: They're Zack Morris approved. $34.90, express.com

Sporty Flatforms

This amped-up version of sneaks blew up mainly thanks to the Spice Girls. But we really, really, really, wanna wear them now! Thankfully, the new versions are not 8 inches high, and they come in chic textures and hues—like this snakeskin-inspired nude pair. $89, ninewest.com

Brown Lipstick

There are a lot of '90s beauty trends that should never return (see: butterfly clips and body glitter). But this one still packs just as much attitude and allure as it did back then. Swipe on a deep chocolate lip hue with subtle blush and mascara for a quick and super flattering look. $5, Walmart

Slip Dress

The very same style that Cher wore to make Christian's jaw drop (sorry—we're Clueless-obsessed) is here to turn heads again! Wear this curve-hugging number with a breezy button-down top and flat sandals to look sexy without trying. $30, macys.com
