The Nineties Called, They Want a Come Back

The nineties brought some good times. Who can forget N-Sync, Backstreet Boys, Hanson, and the Spice Girls? Or how about Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Hey Arnold, and Growing Pains? But, with the good came the interesting, and now that I am in my adult form I am frightened that children are reliving some of the more interesting trends that I was hoping to forget like the platform shoes and grunge fashion. With that being said, let's dive in and talk about the what nineties staples may be coming back with a vengeance. 

Choker Necklaces

Flashbacks of black plastic choker necklaces being worn through middle school and being the only girl without one has still left me with some issues to this day. So it's not surprising this is first on my list. While I don't think anyone over the age of 13 should wear the plastic version, there are some chokers that may be worth the second look. They are stepping up their game. Choker necklaces have been sported for the last year here and there by celebrities, but the big comeback comes after a few fashion shows used them to showcase their spring lines. 

The new age choker necklace sports layers, stones, and comes in an assortment of colors. 

Doc Martens

Raise your hand if you had a pair of these. Okay, I see you, all of you. These were the "it" shoe in the nineties. It didn't matter who you were, Doc Martens were made for everyone. The low tops for your preppy crowd and the high tops for your skater punks. It was a staple in life. While I am still a fan of the classics, I actually don't mind where they are taking these puppies now-a-days. They are extremely durable too, I have a couple of friends who still have theres and they are not fresh out of school either. 

Tiny Floral Strappy Dresses

I will still never understand this trend. If you grew up in a household where you had to wear modern clothes, this dress might actually haunt you. Because while you watched movies like Ten Things I Hate About You and the amazing spaghetti strapped dresses they donned knowing you'd never get to experience that, you can close your eyes and move on. Because, the look of the small floral scrappy dress belongs on a cabbage patch doll or my five-year-old self, and putting a t-shirt under anything is just not fashionable. These dresses had material that was always flimsy and loose; the print looks old and outdated. Can we pause and just say we won't talk about the fact people still layer these over a sleeved shirt. While this is one of the more fashionable outfits that are often seen with Doc Martens on your feet, it's nothing someone over the age of five should attempt.
