90s fashion bring back memories of the good, the bad and the ugly
It is a known saying that history repeats itself, and when students reminisce about trends from the 90s it is clear that fashion follows that pattern as well.
Whether it may be clothing, hair or just overall style, students agree there are things that are a joy to see back in stores and some things that are better left as memories.
Junior Tyler Wentworth said many outfits and styles that were popular a decade ago seem to be showing up nowadays.
“I see that hipster look with the big glasses that everyone wears now just like back then,” the Clare native said.
Many students look back on the fashion statements they made from the 90s with a smile. Grass Lake junior Joshua Seman had many good memories attached to certain pieces of clothing that he remembered from the 90s.
“I had a windbreaker jacket that was neon colors and I rocked it with these awesome red Converse. I loved that outfit,” Seman said.
Both male and female students seem to think much of the fashion choices they made were based on celebrity appeal and what was going on in the media.
“I tried to match the Spice Girls and Hilary Duff; everyone wanted to look like her when she was big,” Howell sophomore Rebecca Miner said.
Not only clothing was influenced from stars but students reflect back on the good and not so great things that they did in the 90s based on their favorite idols when it comes to the way they styled their hair.
“I highlighted my hair because older kids were doing it to look like N’sync and the Backstreet Boys,” Wentworth said. “I’ll never do that again.”
But, not all students cracked under the media pressure with the dying of hair tips.
“I hated boy bands, so I didn’t do those hair light tips,” Seman said.
As far as female students go, Miner said the big ballet style buns girls wear on top of their heads were something that she found to be trendy both today and back in 90s.
Many fads were noticed when asked about the 90s. Thea Hill sees a lot of the new crazes with denim are popular today as they were back in the 90s, too.
“The acid-wash look and high-waist things remind me of the 90s,” the Shelby Township freshman said.
Seman said the grunge look is something he remembers from the 90s but he believes it isn’t necessarily coming back, but there may be a few aspects of it returning.
“The plaid shirts are kind of in but not the entire grungy style,” he said.
