Being that I grew up in the 90s (I was an 80s baby), I got a full dose of 90s style right in my formative years. I’m talking burgundy corduroy overalls, fuzzy wizard-sleeve bell-neck sweaters (I had it in 2 colors!), holographic-ish daisy print baby tees (bought at Contempo Casuals, of course), platform flip-flops, JNCO jeans… the works!
But the one thing I never really wore was plaid. Oh, I imagine some might have snuck in there (I use to be a Curler– the sport- and plaid runs rampant in Curling clubs) but I certainly wasn’t “grunge” by any means.
So, am I making up for lost time now? Perhaps… I find myself drawn to plaid tops and a hell of a lot of black clothes lately, but I’m not about to jump in my Delorean and head back 20 years (omg, the 90s were TWENTY (plus or minus) YEARS AGO!?) to douse myself in H2T 90s nostalgia.
So, while I might be slipping a little grunge into my style now and then, don’t expect me to go full 90s. Never go full 90s.
