They say fashion has a tendency to repeat itself, and even more so for us. Especially in recent years, this trend has become more noticeable. So, it became noticeable that the style of domestic 90s now appears in fashion. Or is it progress that has been reaching them for so long, or really looking cool, definitely all the men want to be a "boy". Yes, these are the very caps, leather jackets, slippers on a woolen toe or on a barefoot in tattoos, tie-dye shirt patterns, the same notorious sports style, autumn-winter threatens to remind us not only of inflation but also of clothing style. Exactly what many years, men, women, and teenagers can become everyday attire of all men? This article will take you back to the days where fashion was used not just to make profits by the apparel manufacturers, but it was considered to be a part of everyone’s personality.
Denim or bomber jacket
For the top, two jackets take their hair. The bomber jacket is a must this fall after a return to the front of the scene in recent seasons. Of military origin at the base, this bomber is one of those clothes that have had huge success on the sidewalks of major cities. Easy to wear, light and comfortable, it also protects us from the rain often present at this time of the year. Many street-wear brands offer them alongside specialists such as alpha industries and Schott NYC.
Other options which are available to men, were the denim jacket with sheep fur collar. A classic that is generally open for casual wear. Several models exist, without fur for the shyest or even sleeveless. It is often associated with a check shirt or a white t-shirt but avoids with denim pants.
The association jeans/sneakers
The denim pants are a classic of the male wardrobe. But to have a nineties grunge silhouette, it will be necessary to opt for the stonewashed or faded jeans. The possibility also to have worn knees and leave the ankles in the air. The king of Levi’s jeans at this time with their 501 pants will be an essential ally but other brands are also needed today.
What's better for a total 90's look than to associate jeans with sneakers? Inseparable duo 25 years ago, the sneakers are another basic for men since the smashing return of the sneakers. Converse, Nike, and Adidas revive these shoes in the same way but also with new colors.
Grunge was an important part of 90s fashion, and nothing said that grunge liked ripped jeans. Many young men wore these torn jeans to convey the rebellious spirit of the time. Although ripped jeans are not too rebellious today, they can still add a subtle touch to any casual look.
The windbreakers were massive in the 90s and have made an epic comeback in recent seasons. These lightweight, windproof jackets are perfect for sporting a retro style, especially when worn in bright colors.
Oversized flannel shirts
Oversized flannel shirts were part of the uniform of many of the 90s men who love music bands like Grunge and Kurt Cobain. Worn around the waist or opened with a plain or graphic t-shirt underneath prepared by well0-known t-shirt manufacturers, these big shirts projected a look "too cool to worry about".
90s trends in General
In the west, minimalism, simplicity, and practicality have become the main fashion trends, as opposed to the rampant consumption of the 80s. Men's business clothes have become more free and simple. Sports and sportswear with logos of famous brands are becoming more and more popular.
The “Grunge” style is widespread among young people: baggy clothes of large sizes, gloomy tones. The variety of subcultures: rap, hip-hop, rock determines the appearance of adolescents.
In the late 90s, the widespread dissemination of information technology leads to the rapid spread of fashion trends in the world. The dresses were short had hippie fabrics, decorations with peace symbols and flowers, lime green and orange are the colors of the seasons. He wore tight pants and platform shoes. The great colors of the season were brown and chocolate. For the man, the tie-dye shirt patterns remained the norm of dress for formal occasions.
For underwear, men wore briefs as they were a renaissance of the past, but now they were made of polyester silk with colorful designs. Jeans was the standard of casual wear. The blue jeans by different apparel manufacturers were the most popular, but the black and cream colors were also valid, most men opted for a comfortable fit, rather than the narrow look.
Fashion in the 90s was not characterized by a specific style but rather was defined as an impulse of people to mark their individuality through clothing. To this would be added the contribution of some musical trends. In general, low-rise pants, prominent necklines and jean that do not lose their presence in the eighties, but instead arrive to stay stand out as usual; the faded and broken were "plague."
It should be noted that the fashion of those years absorbed the influences of some musical genres. It can be noted that the Grunge style, whose main exponent was Kurt Cobain, of the “nirvana” group, was felt especially in North America, with worn pants and plaid t-shirts. The rap also contributed its own with pants and loose shirts, in addition to the characteristic visor caps.
Unquestionably, it is the fashionable "marker" of the decade. After the 90s and half of the 2000s marked by the recurring presence of epaulets, sportswear has emerged in a predictable way: fashion has always worked this way, cyclically, alternating everything and it’s opposite.
We can also draw parallels between the emergence of this trend and the "spornosexual phenomenon", that is to say, the cult of the body worked by the sport and exhibited.
Tight-fitting outfits, very deep necklines revealing the busts or "virtual exhibition" via bare-bodied photos taken in front of the mirror of an overloaded bathroom: the mucus rooms have developed exponentially everywhere, reminding us that it is highly desirable for modern man to have the torso of a secret story finalist.
But fortunately, in this case, the emergence of a trend combines a multitude of actors and does not (always) respond to a dogmatic vision. On the same season, several houses/brands can leave on a close idea-generating an embryo of "trend", which will have to be repeated over several seasons and generalize to acquire this status.
I think that sportswear started from the bottom: high sneakers made a smashing comeback around 2007/2008. Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior Homme and notorious Givenchy with his famous Tyson: all brands had to have their sneaker lines, even the most classic unaccustomed to so much relaxation.
Obviously, the very great virality of certain surface trends, those which are only established for a season, can punctuate the fundamental movements of heavy trends. But whether we like to follow them or not, it is always extremely interesting to see how men dress and change their habits!
