How 90s New York Fashion is Making a Comeback

How 90s New York Fashion is Making a Comeback
If you’re old enough to remember the 90s, you probably recall the fashion trends that dominated the decade, especially those coming out of New York City. Perhaps you even noticed that some of these styles are making a comeback in modern fashion today—which raises the question: why? To answer this question, let’s take a look at what was going on in New York City in the ‘90s, how it inspired fashion trends, and how these trends were so important to our culture and world today.

What is 90s New York fashion?

In the 1990s, grunge Fashion took over America. What was once a fad soon became an identity for many young people during that time. What has become known as the grunge look, with layers of over-sized flannel shirts and combat boots, was made popular by bands like Nirvana. Some people are speculating that this trend will make it’s way back into mainstream fashion in 2017.

This style typically consisted of simple shapes and colors such as dark colors and neutrals, usually paired with ripped jeans or leather boots. It also would include lace or floral patterns on other articles of clothing or accessories.

Where are we seeing this style today?

Designers are coming out with collections inspired by 1990s fashion. These collections are not only bringing back 1990s street style and iconic trends, but also putting the spotlight on forgotten icons and the people who paved the way for the future of fashion. Due to this current revival, many contemporary artists have been called to revisit their favorite stars from then.

For example, in Kanye West’s famous Famous music video, it features a look-alike of Anna Wintour at her desk, played by Kim Kardashian West. This provides an odd sense of nostalgia because as we now know, as editor-in-chief of American Vogue Magazine in 2007 she was one of Anna Wintour’s most outspoken critics and skeptic’s of Kanye West’s talent.

Why is it coming back?

It’s been close to two decades since the ’90s ended, but Fashion from that decade never seems to go out of style. From The Jersey Shore to the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, America was graced with an unparalleled sense of style from the so-called Renaissance (or Golden) Age of Hip Hop. Gangsta rap and Supreme-filled skateboard culture gave birth to what some considered beautiful, young hood celebrities and icons like Jadakiss, Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur and Slick Rick.

Why is it coming back?
In New York City’s fashion scene alone it can be seen throughout rapper Fabolous’ aesthetic in his music videos for songs like Breathe or even Young’n feat.

What new trends can we expect to see next season?

Creative and avant-garde dresses in particular will be making more appearances. Designers are bringing back babydoll dresses, vintage-inspired frocks, bold color combinations and intriguing textures to the runway. Ready-to-wear pieces from these collections will also be hitting stores soon so we’ll be able to incorporate these fun styles into our wardrobe. In addition, shapely silhouettes and retro accessories will still be in vogue for fall.
Turtlenecks are making a comeback this season in addition to cropped jackets paired with high-waisted pants or jeans; bright accessories like earrings, necklaces and bracelets will bring attention to the face while leg warmers remind us of 1987 fashion.

How do I incorporate trends into my personal style?

Trends are usually the first thing we think of when talking about fashion. It seems like every season there are dozens of new trends to try out and look at in awe. One trend that has been hot for the past couple years is 90s fashion or anything reminiscent of what people would wear in the nineties.
This trend isn’t going anywhere soon because it’s one that’s coming back (i.e. it existed before). Who doesn’t love an easy way to feel nostalgic? To start incorporating this trend into your style, take inspiration from Audrey Hepburn, grunge rockers, NYC hip-hop artists, and more from the era to find pieces that inspire you.
