3 fashion trends from the '90s we must leave in the past


3 fashion trends from the ’90s we must leave in the past

Please god, not again

By Shweta Gandhi  August 11th, 2017

What goes around, comes around. No, we’re not talking about karma here—we’re talking about the never-ending fashion cycle, which keeps sending us blasts from the past. Who expected chokers to make such a big comeback? Or those high-waisted mom jeans that only look good on 6 feet tall Victoria’s Secret models? The next thing we know, bum bags might return to being a thing.

Oh wait, they already are. 

Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all been spotted wearing the polarising accessory recently. And just a few days ago, Jacqueline Fernandez hopped onto the bum bag bandwagon. Before this gets noticed and absorbed by their cumulative fan following of billions, we’re averting disaster by bringing up all the ’90s trends that we never want to see again. Start taking notes already.

3 nineties trends that we must never bring back

Bum bags

We’re seeing a resurgence of this already, thanks to style influencers Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian West and Jacqueline Fernandez. Quick to sniff out an emerging trend before anyone else, luxury labels like Gucci and Louis Vuitton jumped in with exquisitely made — but still unnecessary — offerings. The sight of which make us regret ever wishing for brands to make our handbags 'more practical'. 

Bucket hats

In our understanding, the existence of hats can be traced back to the origin of bad hair days. But what brought on the existence of these bucket hats in the ‘90s (dear god, is that a denim hat?) beats us. Dear Rihanna, you could wear a jute sack and make it look like haute couture. But please do not encourage what should not be encouraged.

Butterfly clips

Remember these cute little butterflies we all wore as kids? Though they've not made as big of a splash as the choker, the butterflies are still hovering around. Don't let them too close.
