A lot of guys wore baggy opened-up flannel with a graphic tee underneath. This trend is still popular today.
Starter had a bunch of different styles of their jackets but they all had one thing in common – a professional sports team written in large letters. That was a huge success for them – men and women alike were able to rep their favorite team on a warm jacket.
Back before the great "skinny jean epidemic," denim was worn as loose as possible, on both men and women. The baggier, the cooler.
Men and women alike wore hi-rise jeans (usually light wash or regular blue)
Held-over from the 80s, fluorescent windbreakers dominated the early 90s with short collars snaps, and bold designs.
Flowery dresses were very popular in the early 1990s. Later in the 1990s, these innocent floral dresses were replaced by more ironic babydoll styles– preferably worn with ripped black tights and Doc Martens boots. The style started to become shorten than those wore in the early 90s.
The mid-1990s saw an explosion of kiddie-inspired fashion, with teens and young adults wearing colorful plastic hair barrettes, bows, and other kid-like accessories. A “baby tee” resembled infant’s clothing, with a white elastic neck area and capped sleeves. Usually made of cotton but sometimes cut in Lycra or terry cloth, these t-shirts usually fell above the belly button.
Works Cited

Light up shoes were a huge craze of the 1990s. The most popular brand was LA Gear. These shoes were just as comfortable as normal sneakers, the only difference is that with every step, a burst of bright LED light would flash from your heel.
These shoes were on the feet of women and girls all over the world, in a rainbow of styles and colors. In Howver, after the early 1990s, jelly shoes began to fall out of fashion, and they can sometimes be hard to find today. They were extremely cheap and were found in many stores.

The problem with The shoes was that they were a bit stiff, and sometimes quite uncomfortable; jelly shoes could contribute to the formation of large blisters, and they also tended to get very unpleasant when the wearer started to sweat.
Before there were butterfly clips, there was the scrunchie. Scrunchies exploded in the '90's, but eventually became as outdated. However, recently they have started to come back.
The tattoo choker consisted of a tight, springy, lace-like plastic necklace designed to sit snugly against your neck and mimic some sort of hand-drawn tattoo. There were many styles ranging from beaded to fabric styles.

This fashion trend sprouted from the character Blossom in a popular sitcom. The main character Blossom wore a floppy bucket hat with a large flower on it, and many young girls wanted to wear a hat like the eccentric and quirky character.
Bandanas were wrapped heads, necks, wrists, thighs, and even ankles. Many popular music and fashion icons wore these accesories (e.g. Tupac Shakur was famous for wearing a matching bandana around his head with many of his outfits).

Because of China’s financial crisis, Americans in the 1990’s fell in love with the soft and luxurious natural fiber of cashmere. According to the Cashmere and Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute Cashmere is the fine (dehaired) undercoat fibers produced by a Cashmere goat (Capra hircus laniger).

During the 1990’s flannel was introduced and was widely popularized due to the Grunge trend. Flannel is usually made from a wool-cotton blend or wool- synthetic fiber blend and in the 90’s was often correlated with plaid.
Leather and leather imitation fabrics became huge in the late 1990s in pants, short, boxy jackets and mini skirts
