Another '90s Trend Is Back In a Big Way

Posted on

The Backstreet Boys are touring, Britney Spears has a big single out and everyone is wearing overalls. Are we sure it’s not actually 1998?

Further adding to our suspicion that we’ve time traveled (see also: floral sundresses and crop tops galore) is the latest trend we’ve seen on stars from Rihanna to AnnaSophia Robb (neither pictured).

Though relegated in recent years to moms just trying to be practical and bring a sweater with them to the movies, the shirt tied purposefully around the waist is making a major comeback on stylish stars including (from left) Gwen Stefani, Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie.

While Stefani and Richie both attempt high-fashion versions of the grungy look, Hudgens wears hers the most like we remember: Plaid, beat-up and ready to be repurposed as a slouchy top at a moment’s notice. Of course, this trend wasn’t always intentional the first time around — sometimes a girl just really needed a top to tie around her waist at a certain moment.

Tell us: Are you excited this look is coming back, or do you wish it would stay in the past millennium?
