If you grew up in the ’90s, you may vividly remember how wild some of the trends were. While some of the trends actually came back in 2023 — think: slip dresses and chokers — there are a few that are still in the vault to yet make an appearance.
So when I saw Reddit u/MediumRareTaint user ask: “What’s a 90s fad that hasn’t come back in style yet?” I thought it would be fun to “go back in time” and recall what used to be popular. Here are some of the trends below.
“Remember when we went absolutely nuts for yo-yos for a bit?”
“Clear see-through electric devices.”
“Novelty landline phones.”
“Chain Wallets. Everyone had one of those bad boys in high school.”
“My Tamagotchi is still dead.”
“Not a fad I guess, but I miss that ’90s design that was on cups. Kinda hard to describe without showing a picture but, hopefully, someone knows what I mean. lol.”
“Overalls with one buckle undone.”
“Tying your flannel shirt around your waist.”
“Creative cereal flavors with a hearty oat or rice base and actual prizes in the box (none of that generic, corn-based birthday cake flavor for every licensed cereal).”
“Platform flip flops. Really nice for us short folk.”
“Flip shades!!! Omg!! Those were the shit in the early ’90s!”
Is there a ’90s fad you remember that hasn’t come back just yet? If so, tell us what it is in the comments below.
