You may be a grown up
now (or sort of), but that doesn't mean you have to leave every aspect of your younger years behind. In fact, many of the staple styles and fashion trends
that dominated in the '90s
are back in one form or another. So go ahead, reclaim your youth. Click through the slideshow ahead to see how. (Photo via Ron Davis/Getty)
Dad Sneakers: Before every fashion brand started offering their own stylish sneaker options, we only had the core brands like Reebok, Nike, and Fila to turn to. And this chunky shape was the go-to — fanny pack not included. (Photo via Reebok)
JNCO Jeans: You could hardly turn around in the mid- to late-'90s without seeing someone wearing these ginormous pants. A favorite of the raver/skater set, these denim doozies were hard to miss. (Photo via JNCO)
I.Am.Gia Ace Pant ($101):
Flash forward to 2018 and the dark denim wide-legs are making a return appearance, albeit slightly modified. This slimmer style has been spotted on Bella Hadid and Rihanna, so you know it's officially a thing.
Track Suits: Sported by everyone from Mel C. of the Spice Girls to Will Smith (and his backup dancers) in the "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" video, the track suit was everywhere. Whether you actually ran track wasn't important — this athletic set was a '90s necessity. (Photo via Ron Davis/Getty)
Skinny Sunglasses: Smaller, narrower sunnies reigned supreme in the '90s and were a fave of everyone from Aaliyah to Julia Roberts. Now, the It-girl set is cosigning the silhouette once again. (Photo via Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage)
Butterfly Print: Fluttery flying insects became fashion in the mid-'90s, thanks to a boost from Versace. This print graced Vogue's April 1995 cover, solidifying its status as grunge-era must-have. (Photo via Guy Marineau/Condé Nast via Getty)
Baby Backpacks: In the era of Clueless, miniature versions of school bags in fashion fabrics all but replaced traditional handbags. At least they did in the eyes of any Cher Horowitz wannabe worth her salt. (Photo via Paramount Pictures)
Square Necklines: Sweetheart? What's that? Whether it was a higher apron style or lower and straight-across at the bustline (à la '90s queen Kate Moss), the neckline of the era was for sure squared off. (Photo via Ron Galella/WireImage)
