The ’90s are back – scrunchies, choker necklaces, denim, jelly sandals, flannel – just to name a few of the fashion trends hitting our hallways. By simply looking at our favorite celebrities or peering down our own school’s hallways, it may feel as if we are travelling back in time.

Fashion is constantly cycling. The inspiration may come from some of the biggest style proprietors of the 90’s, like Gwen Stefani, Alicia Silverstone, or the Spice Girls, whose impact still remains today.

Seen sporting the returning fashions lately are celebrities like Charli XCX, whose signature style includes platforms and plaid. Her style is also reflected in her music, which fellow artist Lorde describes in a tweet as “perfect ’90s pop melodies.”

The return of the ’90s is even seen here in the halls of New Milford High School.

Senior Natalie Benoit is a prime example of this with her fashion, which she actually claims is unintentional.

“To be honest, I didn’t really consider myself as someone who dresses with a ’90s style. I guess I just have a lot of the outfits my mom and godmother used to own, and wear them since their clothing’s so comfortable and cute. I carry the ’90s look from their clothing. Plus, I find overgrown sweaters super comfy.”

The most common comeback seems to be chokers. They are seen being worn by students quite often.

Marisa Tormo (’17) explains in her opinion why this may be the case. “I like wearing chokers because sometimes when my shirt is low cut there is a lot of open space, and the choker fills it and makes my outfit look better.”

Scrunchies are also a popular returning trend. Julia Sidorsky (’17) is never seen without one either on her wrist or in her hair. She says, “I like scrunchies because they hold my hair up better and add character.” Sara Savino (’17) adds, “Scrunchies don’t make dents in your hair like typical hair ties.”

A lot of people also draw inspiration from other ’90s mediums such as film. Valerie Syanchuk (’17) excitedly exclaims, “I love Clueless! And I like all of Cher’s styles throughout the film, especially her virtual wardrobe.”

So whether it be through music, fashion or film, there are truly glimpses of the ’90s everywhere we look today.
