Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a “Fashion Flashback” feature! I recently had my 20th class reunion (yah, just wait, it will go fast for you too!) and while looking through old photos and reminiscing with everyone, I couldn’t help but notice a few accessories that were super popular in the 90’s that are currently re-trending today. It’s so crazy how fashion recycles through the years! Some things we are happy to welcome back into our closets and other things, well, we might wish they would have died with the era! Let’s see what you think of these four accessories that are making their way back into this summer’s fashion scene.
#1 Tattoo chokers- The “edgy” kids wore these in the 90’s. These cheap stretch-plastic chokers were all the rage back then. It was about 9 months ago I spotted someone wearing one and couldn’t believe they still existed. In the months since there’s been more and more people wearing them. They can be found online at Amazon.com, or clothing stores like Tilly’s and Urban Outfitters. My personal take on them, I don’t love them, but I could live with them being back for a bit.
#2 Yin Yangs- The Yin Yang symbol is an ancient symbol in Chinese philosophy and medicine, and has been around for ages. But it was a pretty popular item to wear in the 90’s in the form of jewelry, and on t-shirts. Recently I’ve seen the symbol popping up here and there, mostly in the form of necklaces and earrings. I don’t mind the Yin Yang symbol, but I personally think it’s best worn in smaller statements like jewelry, rather than items like t-shirts and bags. Less is more for this one!
#3 Bowler Hats – I personally LOVE them! I know, they’re not for everyone. I think they look cute with certain clothing styles, and I love that they’re popping up here and there in fashion. Back in the 90’s they were pretty much made all in black, today you can find them in several colors. The one pictured above is from Abercrombie and Fitch.
#4 Birkenstocks – Ok, this one is my thumbs down. I personally didn’t love them in the 90’s, and I still don’t love them today. Especially when people wear them with socks! But hey, those who can own it, can probably pull them off. They certainly are comfy, so they have that going for them.
What do you think?! Have you rocked any of these items lately? How are you wearing them? Share with on Instagram by using the hashtag #MTSfashionflashback.
