Bringing The 90’s Back

The 1990s were a decade of fun and frolic. It was the decade of boy bands, girl bands, funky hair colour and colourful and sparkly clothing. Mostly known for its music, the era is also looked back as a fashion disaster. Many magazines publish pictures of celebrities and models in the 90’s under the section of what should not be worn in public. But despite the many negative ideas behind the 90’s, certain trends of the era are coming back.

Music and Rhythm

Since the end of the 1990’s popular boy bands such as ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys and girl bands such as the Spice Girls have not existed. The 2010s however has seen a rise in the number of boy and girl bands in the music industry that keep dominating music charts globally. While the music and style of the songs have changed, the element of a group of singers has reentered the global arena. What’s more, is that old school bands have started revival tours either across the United States or Britain drawing attention to that particular type of music and dance.

Personal Style

The 90’s were known for their wacky and funky style which everyone was a part of. Though not all aspects of this decade in relation for style are praised, many of the trends that were popular in the 1990’s are coming back. Two of which are platform shoes and choker necklaces. These two elements of style are being incorporated into almost every teenage girl’s go-to look. The way in which these two accessories are worn and the clothes that they are paired with are completely different to the way it was in the 90’s. Hair style has also changed with hair braids and side ponytails being popular amongst children and teenagers.

Embracing the Era

It is not only the ordinary people who are choosing certain elements of the 90’s to go back to. Celebrities, fashion bloggers, media and social media networks have all contributed to the resurfacing of this decade. It should be noted that while there are many comeback items from the 90’s that the uniqueness of the 2000’s has not been lost. What has happened instead is the incorporation of these two eras into one. While bringing features of the 90’s back, there is a popular move toward making the 90’s come across as a decade that is not only known for the good music provided but as a decade that was fashion forward. In order to do this, celebrities have begun attending popular social events in known 90’s trends such as hair braids Dubai, crop tops and coloured hair.


Many networks have begun airing shows that were televised in the 1990’s and radio channels are now dedicating entire shows to play music from the 1990’s. Contemporary television shows are being created as sequels to popular 90’s television series and movies; creating a sense of nostalgia for all 90’s kids.
