The '90s Fashion Trends Making a Comeback This Summer

Trends come and go but this summer, old trends are back! Popular pieces and closet staples of the 90’s are officially in style and being seen on social media, influencers, and celebrities. From basic tops, to bottoms, to accessories, current popular brands are releasing their own products to follow the trends coming back on trend. Lululemon has their belt bags, Aritzia and Edikted have baby tees, and Princess Polly has slip dresses, to name a few iconic items of the 90s with a hint of 2022. 

These may be past trends, but it’s 2022 — people are coming up with new ways to spice up these 90’s classics. Wearing athleisure to class, dressing up a white ribbed tank, or dressing down a simple slip dress are all ways these original 90’s pieces are coming back in current fashion. Adding personal touches to these items have been seen everywhere this summer.
