The Digital Watch
Back in the 90s, pagers were the cool accessories, with massive, unwieldy cellphones reserved for businessmen. If you didn’t want to be late for your showing of Clueless, you had to wear a watch. Nobody was cooler than the kids with G Shock watches with transparent faces.
Though these watches are now worn ironically, strictly as accessories, they are back! Pair your G Shock watch with a classic tie-dye tee to get the complete look!
There was no scrunchie too big back in the 90s! Our favorite 90s hair accessories are back with a vengeance, and they’ve only gotten bigger and more inventive. To complete the look, match your scrunchie to your top and slip on your favorite pair of boot-cut denim jeans!
The Bucket Hat
We never thought we’d see bucket hats on the high fashion runway, but it’s a wild time to be alive! The revival of this style started with popular celebrities, possibly beginning with Justin Beiber on social media. Even if you don’t like them as part of an everyday look, they make great beachy accessories for the upcoming summer season!
In the 90s, everyone had a mini backpack slung over their shoulders and a Spice Girls lollipop in their mouth. The mini-bag is back again, in new patterns and colors to suit a more modern aesthetic. Even high-end designers are putting out miniature backpacks this season, so grab a lollipop and head to the mall!
The cardigan was in for a long time, then out again. Now it’s back, but it looks like it has gone through the dryer a few times. Rather than the oversized cardigans from the decade, the modern fashionista is embracing the cropped cardigan.
While these make great accessories, you can also wear them as tops. Pair yours with some loose-fitting shorts for a retro-meets-contemporary vibe.
