Someone mentioned waif-thin eyebrows. I'm sorry, but I've been seeing even THINNER eyebrows over the past 5 years than I did in the 90's. I've seen WAY too many times the rediculous style of women plucking out ALL their eyebrows and penciling them in (and they'll regret it once the style is over because their eyebrows won't grow back). It's as if looking like a drag queen has become something admirable or something. Female RuPauls!

I've seen the 90's version of punk coming back, 90's-style men's jeans (baggy but tapered at the bottom) coming back, 90's haircuts (women's inverted bobs, men's mushroom cuts, manic-panic colors on bleached hair), collarless shirts or shirts with minimal collars.

The gangster extra-baggy jeans that show off boxer shorts hasn't ever went away.

I've been noticing more women with the bob, especially the inverted one lately.

[quote=miss6o]does anyone remember the plaid jackets with fur collar? it was called the "twin peaks jacket". this pic is closest to the kind of jacket i am talking about but its too narrow:


^^^

This is definetively super-coming back, but in black+red or electrc blue+red...

I used to use my dads Twin Peaks jacket..it was way to big...Also that is kinda 90's...

i definitely see the 90's making a comeback... in some of those previous pictures posted the 90's were in the clothing but sometimes very subtle.

WOOT! Raver style! I remember those days... I was more punk raver than anything. That was late 90's, 96-00 or so.

OK, I'll admit I've recently pulled out my small oblong Armani sunglasses from the '90s ...remember those? :p

They feel refreshing after the all the huge shades (though I like those too).

Me too!!

I was like some bizarre punk, goth, raver hybrid.

I listened to techno, goth, and punk (well actually I still do, excep the techno)

I'd have like a green mohawk, tattoos, piercings, wearing combat boots, vinyal pants, studded cuffs etc. But be like at a rave club.

Oh the days of being young and silly.

from a fashion point of view though..this is excellent..i'd really like people to get more comfortable with higher rises and looser clothing..

i never ever would want to see fashion interpret the 90's literally though... everything was cut so awkwardly, with those two darts in the back and the front...and lots of seams..uh-uh

and the one thing i would not want to see with a high rise is a mini skirt, i think it does for some bad proportion play...
