You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll reach for your acid-wash jeans.

Looking back, the '90s feels like a golden era—the Game Boy! The Spice Girls! The Parent Trap! The last cell phone-less generation!—most of all when it comes to '90s fashion. Scrunchies, acid-wash jeans, tube tops, and capri pants reigned supreme among '90s style trends, along with crimped hair, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and punk rock. It was a glorious time, made only more glorious by the A-listers and '90s supermodels who blithely wore their finest on the red carpet and out and about, secure in the knowledge that they would never have to look back on these iconic looks and feel anything other than pride.

Unfortunately, in the year of our Lord 2023, some of these '90s looks...hit a little different. But, on the other hand, these looks prove just how much the '90s influenced some of today's most in-demand trends. So sit back, grab a packet of Pop Rocks, and instead of wondering how 1990 can be as far away from the present day as 2050 (!), enjoy these looks, which represent the very best (if "best" is the right word here) of '90s fashion.
