Smells like the ‘90s are making a comeback

By Arry Schofield —

The year is 2018 and all ‘90s kids are officially adults. ‘90s kids are setting new trends everyday, and bringing some from their childhood with them. The early 2000s brought back trends from the ‘80s like acid washed jeans and plastic bracelets, but now the ‘90s is coming back with a vengeance.

Cardi B and Bruno Mars hopped on the bandwagon with the release of “Finesse,” reminiscent of the “In Living Color” days. Even U of L is on board with bringing back memories by hosting a ‘90s themed homecoming.

Want to relive the ‘90s? Here’s how:

Mom jeans

Once exclusive to thrift stores, mom jeans are making their way back to commercial retailers. Jeggings and low-waisted jeans have been left in the past, while high-waisted, rugged and loose fitting jeans are taking their place.

Stores like Urban Outfitters, ASOS and American Eagle are hopping on the trend.


The days of frying your hair until your room smells like burned popcorn are over. Now, casually throwing hair into a ponytail with a scrunchie has made its way into the mainstream.

Skate brands

Skate culture is resurfacing as well with popular brands like Thrasher and Vans. In the past few years, Vans heavily marketed their Old Skool line.

“In 1996, it was one of the best shoes offered by Vans and has really stood the test of time,” James Jebbia, creator of Supreme, said.

Neon windbreakers

Are they a meme or a fashion trend? Is it possible that an article of clothing can be both? It’s 2018, of course it can. Neon windbreakers have taken the internet by storm, often paired with bright colored pants and obnoxious sunglasses.


The grunge classic. Everyone owns one, but no one really knows where they came from. Worn as a casual jacket, or tied around the waist, there’s no doubt flannel will be in for a while.
