1990s General Trends
• The popularity of grunge and alternative rock music also helped bring the simple, unkempt grunge look mainstream. In general, the 1990s saw a general minimalist aesthetic in fashion,[3] contrasted to the more elaborate and flashy trends of the 1980s. Additionally, fashion trends throughout the decade started recycling styles from previous decades,[4] notably the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, a trend which would continue into the 2000s and 2010s. • The top-models of the 1990s were Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Nadja Auermann, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Carla Bruni, Tatiana Sorokko, Helena Christensen, Claudia Schiffer, Yasmeen Ghauri, Stephanie Seymour, Carolyn Murphy, Amber Valletta, Shalom Harlow, and Tyra Banks.

[edit] Neon colors
• The early 1990s saw a continuation of 1980s fashion: women wore denim button down shirts, neon colors, oversized sweaters, T-shirts, sweatshirts, baby doll dresses, trenchcoats lined with fake fur, and black leather jackets. Matching jeans and denim jackets began to be made in darker shades rather than the bleached acid wash of the 1980s. • From 1990 onwards, many women wore tight-fitting trousers with elastic boot-straps (stirrup pants/leggings), drainpipe jeans, colored tights, bike shorts, and tartan skirts. Popular accessories included court shoes, cowboy boots, headscarves, leggings, and penny loafers (associated with the preppy look). [edit] Leggings and Exercise-wear

• Leotards made worn as tops with jeans were popular. A common outfit was to wear a skirt, dress shorts, babydoll or minidress with black opaque tights, white slouch socks and white sneakers. It was not uncommon to see mothers dressed right along with their daughters in white slouch socks worn over black leggings or sweatpants, oversized T-shirt or sweater, and athletic sneakers like Keds or Converse.

[edit] Hippie look
• The mid-1990s saw a revival of 1960s fashion from 1993 onwards, including hippie-style floral dresses, turtleneck shirts, lace blouses, and Gypsy tops.[5][6] • In America, Britain and Australia, long floral skirts, olive green dresses and yellow or blue denim shortalls, a version of overalls in which the legs of the garment resemble those of shorts, were very popular.

• Around this time in Europe (especially Italy), it was also fashionable to dress entirely in black or wear designer clothing displaying Italian or French labels (such as Lacoste, Yves Saint-Laurent, Armani, Gucci, or Chanel) as a way of demonstrating one's apparent social status and wealth. • Popular accessories during the mid-1990s included conch shell necklaces, straw hats, chunky wedge heeled platform shoes, knee high boots, and dolly shoes.

[edit] Pastel colors
• In the late 1990s, women wore pastel colors like pink or baby blue, fleeces, tank tops revealing the midriff (crop top), and Union jack motifs inspired by the Cool Britannia movement.[7] This continued into the 2000s. [edit] Casual chic

• Many trends from the early and mid-1990s continued late into the decade, including flared trousers, miniskirts, grey sweatpants, yoga pants, capri pants, low-waisted jeans inspired by the designs of Alexander McQueen,[8] and thong underwear popularised by contemporary R&B and jungle music. • In Britain and the US, popular accessories included large hoop earrings, shoes with rounded toes, flip flops, jelly shoes, alice bands, fascinators, gold jewelry, running shoes, bandanas, and novelty wellington boots with patterns like leopard print or zebra stripes.
