Help Me Dress Authentic 90's

Postby Steph1673 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:12 am

I'm chairing our trivia night in February and it's a 90's theme. I want to bring out my inner grunge, but be as authentic as possible. I know a tons of 90's stuff is "back in" but I want to be true to the era if possible and not buy "new brands" or the 2018 version of the 90's is that makes sense. I bought an ESPIRIT Black Leather Backpack purse on ebay (yes!) and some knock off, black floral print Doc Martens boots. I'm going for the feminine grunge look. I think I want to pair this with black tights (either ripped or fishnet?) with light wash denim shorts over, and then a 90's band tee of some sort and an open plaid long sleeve shirt.

I'm trying to get the jorts JUST right :laughing: I'm thinking these light wash, roll up Lee Jeans do the trick, what do you think? I only wish I could find some GUESS jean shorts in my size! https://www.target.com/p/women-s-mid-ri ... t=52135703

ETA: I did find these two Guess jean shorts from the 90s too: https://poshmark.com/listing/vintage-Gu ... gJTHPD_BwE

I've been watching early Friends episodes on Netflix lately. Any chance you could find a vest? Lots of good inspiration on there. :laughing:

1. It bothers me the guess are called “vintage”. We aren’t that old right :| ?
2. Don’t forget your scrunchie!

I think the Lee shorts would be good, especially if you're concerned about the length of the others. Do you have a flannel you can throw over the t shirt? I think that would drive home the reference. If that's not feminine enough for you, what about a baby doll dress without the fishnets and combat boots? Or one of those thin strapped dresses with a little t shirt underneath? That's the way I dressed in high school for a couple of years.

Yes, I will be putting a flannel over it... I expect lots of flannel that night! I ordered the Lee Jeans and will see how they fit :good:

Love the babydoll dress look, too. That can be back up if I don't dig the jean shorts.

I meant to write babydoll dress with fishnets and boots, not without.
I think you'll look great, and it sounds like a fun time!

Be sure to tie the flannel around your waist if you get warm!
