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)
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)
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)

Spiff up your next lazy-girl updo with a gold hair tie for instant pizzazz.

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