it looks very very good with a pencil skirt, a whole different story with something that is very short and awkwardly flares out..

Candy ravers, the ones running around sucking on lollipops and pacifiers and hugging people.

i missed the overalls like crazy. for a while they were only (barely) acceptable during pregnancies. save Berkeley and some parts of SF where they seem to hold on. rarely in Paris.

i practically lived in them for much of the nineties, esp at home. well, that's it<stomping> i'm bringing them out again and buying a few more. advanced apologies to the world.

I can see...
I can see (and kind of hope) it coming back, but as been pointed out, in terms of aesthetics, i.e. minimalism, rather than every fad that came and went.

In a more subcultural aspect, this trend as an huge comeback, mostly in the hiphop culture. I can tell that New York is the motherland of this early 90's trend. High top fade, gold rope, acid wash denim, ghettoblasters..

^ I've been noticing this 90's hip-hop trend too in NY... I just hope high waisted acid wash jeans don't come back.

I have a friend who's into the whole 90's hiphop trend and it's getting pretty big in that scene at least, she's a hip hop dancer. Thick gold ropes, plaid shirts, jeans vests, old school glasses and so on, even the hair, she's getting a Miarah Carrey perm she says.

I see it in ordinary fashion too, just not as much and not as blatant.

90's hiphop is showing up more frequently in those copying the style of M.I.A. as she blatantly takes influence from the 90's with geometrics, metallics, and abundance of color. I personally adore her style.
