It shouldn’t come as a surprise to say that the 90’s have been slowly and steadily making a come back for the last few seasons. From Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid prancing around New York city in high-waisted denim to mini backpacks at Louis Vuitton, we’re clearly in the midst of a 90’s fashion renaissance: Mom jeans, overalls, velvet styles, and earring hoops. Even Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, is one of the freshest faces on the runway. It’s like we’re living a similar version of our childhood as adults.
EDIT: We all know Hispanic and Black women have been rocking hoop earrings for ages. They are making a reappearance at NYFW.

Can it be? Are hair claws and scrunchies our next must-have beauty accessories?

Have we really thought of everything in the fashion industry that we have to revive these trends?
It’s clear that the 90’s resurgence is just getting started. Bella Hadid was just spotted in Times Square paying homage to the Matrix with tiny sunglasses and a leather get up. With fashion week only half way through, stay tuned for other notorious 90’s trends just waiting for revival.
