Everything Spice Girls. Remember when the British pop stars stopped by on “All That?” We’ll never forget. Their outfits represent the 90s at its best: knee-high boots, leather jacks, low-rise pants and fresh jackets. Each with a unique style that fit their respective spice, you could get fashion inspiration from these ladies whether you were in a “scary” or “posh” mood.
As amazing as “All That” was, some trends are meant to be forgotten. Everything going on above, from Amanda’s teal turtleneck/red hat combo to Lori Beth’s bedazzled sweater are prime examples of 90s fashion gone awry.
Crop tops and high waisted pants were huge in the 90s, and no one pulled them off better than Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly from “Saved By the Bell”). The floral ensemble above, not to mention the confidence, make this ultra-90s look appear timeless even if few can look so fabulous.
The fluffy fringe on Kenan’s sweater and the hot pink beads on Kel are relics we’d rather not have to return to. Pairing the bright lime green with bold patterns clashes in a bad way, and the extra-volume wigs certainly don’t help! We hate to say it, but we doubt even a Spice Girl could make these outfits shine.
Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa from “Clarissa Explains it All”) had some fabulous and not-so-fabulous 90s outfits. The above look, though, is one of the best fashion trends of the 90s: neon leggings, funky belts, and high ponytails. Ability to zap your kid brother into thin air not included.
“The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s” Will Smith was often “fresh,” but his outfits missed the mark more than a few times — and that goes for you too, Jazzy Jeff! Even if it was cool at the time, the backwards purple baseball hat with the matching undershirt, bright yellow top and patterned pants is just a teensy bit cringeworthy. Will Smith’s kids have been on the cover of Teen Vogue, though, so we can’t knock his look too much!
