What to wear to a 90s Party
If you’re one of those, then you’ll effortlessly go to a party in your favorite costume, not even worried about what everyone would think, and you somehow always make it work, hurray for you!
People will always be jealous of you and your sense of confidence, as well as of your sense of fashion.
The 2nd type of girls are the ones who absolutely love attending themed parties. If you haven’t noticed, 90s themed parties have been showing up all over the country, and I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I say the whole globe.
Let’s check out some 90s clothing ideas that’ll turn you into a 90s babe in no time, and they won’t even get close to breaking bank.
You probably still own a pair of flared pants somewhere in your clothes, because they’re not completely from fashion runways in the 21st century.
These pants aren’t only very comfy, but they’ll transfer you right into a 90s film. Paired with some black heels, and you already have a party look that you easily figured out.
A plus that comes with these pants is how they can make you look a lot taller than you actually are, so why hesitate?
Denim is and was always popular, especially during the 20th century! You can either rock a pair of high-waisted mum jeans, or even boyfriend ones. Along with a denim jacket, these can be paired with absolutely anything and you’ll look amazing in them.
You don’t need to thank us now, do so when you check yourself out in the mirror!
If you’re a fan of PVC, then you’re a lucky one because they haven’t completely gone out of fashion since their time in the 90s.
Pleather and anything that is PVC can be used today to give yourself a really shinning look. You can wear a pair of high-waisted pants or a pleather skirt with a crop top, or even a tucked in chunky sweater.
You can easily be sweat-free in these outfits, as well as they hug you in all the right places.
A lot of celebrities have been seen rocking this outfit including, Hailey Baldwin, Kai Gerber, and Alexa Chung.
90s Hip Hop
90s Hip Hop fashion was extraordinary and is one of the most influencing fashion lines in the history. From bold colors to bucket hats, you couldn’t have gone wrong with pretty much anything back in the day.
You must have noticed that oversized clothing has had a comeback, and we’re all ready for it. You can rock an oversized jacket, hoodie, t-shirt, or basically anything, and you’ll look exactly the part.
You can spice things up by rocking a reverse bandana, a Tupac-style and really sag your pants.
Although everyone hated wearing these back in school when our teachers made us do it, they are now back in style and of course we can’t say no to them, again! If you want to go back to the 90s, then this is one great way to do it!
Depending on where you’re from, you might find the kids still rocking these today. Why wouldn’t they? They’re really fun!
So, go to your drawer and grab your old pair back, put them on and roll into your next party with style! If you want to complete the look, it wouldn’t hurt to get your old Sony Walkman up and running again!
If you remember closely, you’ll just how plaid skirts were a necessity in every wardrobe in the 90s. You basically could never go wrong with them!
Pair those with a bodysuit or a basic top, and some knee-high socks and you’ve already transformed yourself into a Brit, Cher Horowitz, or Gretchen Weiners.
If skirts turn out not to be your thing, you can be more aggressive and go full grunge. This means a flannel shirt, and lots, and I mean LOTS of eyeliner.
90s Hair & Makeup
Every girl knows that hair and makeup are very important parts of any outfit.
If you’re still reading, this means you’re not interested in just dressing up but you want to finish up the look.
Tie your hair in a top knot with a scrunchie, and put a lot of color into your eye shadow. You can be sure you’ll start looking like a 90s babe in no time.
If you’re going to a party with a group of your girlfriends, then you have to do this one. Get your girls dressed up as Posh, Scary, Baby, Ginger, and Sporty for a true 90s look.
This means chunky shoes, bright crop tops, sequin dresses, mini dresses, and of course body suits.
A classic bum bag is exactly what the 90s represented, that’s when they started and that’s not where they should stop.
You can wear these bags as a belt, which is a lot more convenient than simply carrying a purse or a fanny bag all the time, it can get quite frustrating. By wearing this bag, you can carry your stuff and still be able to move around swiftly, and have your hands free to hold some drinks.
These are the comfiest type of clothing on this list and you’re absolutely going to love it. Get yourself a pair of classic denim overalls that you will sure look really fine in.
Pair them with a cropped tee, or even a bralette underneath and you’re good to go.
These overalls would look amazing if you pair them with a choker, which brings us to our next part.
If you don’t wear a choker, then I don’t think you should be allowed to a 90s party. Make sure the choker you have matches either your bralette or crop top, you’ll look really good in it.
Now that you know how to look like you escaped from the 90s on a budget, what are you waiting for? Go out there and show them what a true 90s babe looks like!
