These ’90s-Approved Fashion Trends Took 2018 By Storm

If you thought the rebellious '90s were dead, you're sorely mistaken. In 2018, we saw the resurgence of not only fugly dad sneakers but also Cher Horowitz-inspired plaid and bum-worthy belt bags. What can we say? Sometimes a fad really does get better the second time around. Swipe through for all the angsty '90s-approved FASHUN (the good, the bad, the ugly) that we low-key couldn't get enough of.

Cher Horowitz Plaid: Clueless-inspired ensembles — matchy-matchy plaid co-ords, anyone? — became the uniform of choice among influencers. Odds are, an iconic Dior saddle bag and retro-fabulous shades weren't too far behind. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)

New Look Tailored Coat in Mustard Plaid ($64): As if we'd turn down the chance to bring Cher's signature tartan into 2019.

Ugly Sneakers: Love 'em or hate 'em, Balenciaga's Triple S trainers single-handedly put ugly dad sneakers back on the grid. During fashion month, we saw them teamed with everything from prairie dresses to vinyl pants and mixed-media outerwear. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)

KOIO Avalanche Blue/Yellow Sneakers ($298): Easy on the wallet and eyes, the KOIO Avalanche runner would put your dad's old Filas to shame. Bonus points for the extra-bouncy sole and retro design.

Combat Boots: Despite its ubiquitous status, this grunge-era staple shows no sign of slowing down. Usher the lewk into 2019 — as per this model off-duty — with a leather moto jacket and mom jeans. (Photo via Vanni Bassetti/Getty)

Dr. Martens Jadon Black Polished Smooth Combat Boots ($180): Ten-hut! A pair of heavy-duty OG Doc Martens will never steer you wrong.

Scrunchies: Our favorite It girl, Susie Bubble, proved to be light-years ahead of the sartorial curve with her poised topknot and souped-up scrunchie. (Photo via Pascal Le Segretain/Getty)

J.Crew Gold Hair Tie ($17): Spiff up your next lazy-girl updo with a gold hair tie for instant pizzazz.

Rubber Pool Slides: No longer just a poolside staple, sporty rubber slides were paired with, well, everything. Boho-fabulous frocks, track pants, boyfriend jeans, and tube socks — you name it. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)

Adidas Originals Adilette Slide ($45): Slide into the weekend with a sexy slip dress and Adidas slides for around-the-clock slayage.

Belt Bags: Werk. Luxury belt bags — just big enough to hold all your ish — took Paris Fashion Week by storm. (Photo via Claudio Lavenia/Getty)

OAD New York Mini Messenger Belt Bag in Bordeaux ($215): Look, Ma, no hands! Cinch this bordeaux-hued mini belt bag around the waist of a glen plaid coat for a hassle-free commute.

Denim Overalls: You got it, dude! Season-less dungarees were the real hero piece of NYFW. (Photo via Melodie Jeng/Getty)

Eve Denim Olympia Denim Overalls ($395): Reclaim your youth with an enviable Ganni sweater and vintage-inspired denim overalls that would do Alexa Chung proud.
