’90s Fashion Trends That Should Never Make A Comeback

1. The Hi-Top Fade aka the Box Fade Haircut

The box fade or hi-top fade haircut was a must in the hip-hop and R&B culture of the late ’80s and early ’90s. The cut came in several varieties like the “gumby” (slanted to the side) sported by Bobby Brown, the ultra hi-top fade that Christopher “Kid” Reid wore, the low hi-top fade, and the Steps fade. All the coolest and toughest cats rocked this do: Tupac, Big Daddy Kane, Will Smith…shoot, even Vanilla Ice had a box! Some women even wore them! It was cool then. It’s laughable now. This style just has no place in today’s fashion world, PERIOD. Why would you want hair that looked like an un-used pencil eraser? It is not okay.

    I’ve seen at least six of these “has been” trends worn today. Bandana head band, knee high stockings, body suits, coogi, shoulder pads, solid tee under blazer, I know I’ve seen at least one person with a box fade lol and I just read that they’re bringing back 95′ air maxes

    I think knee-high stockings are attractive, there’s nothing wrong with a t-shirt under a blazer (it’s intended to occupy an area between casual and business-casual), and overalls are extremely useful work clothes for many people.

    The only ones I wholeheartedly agree on are 8, 9 & 15. Enjoy your boring existence as a wanna-be fashionista

    Are you serious? I was in high school and college in the 90’s and I never thought I’d see the day where men were wearing skinny jeans and capri pants. I won’t even get started on the young ladies wearing tights as pants. Fashion is TERRIBLE in this day and age. I love when I see 90’s throwbacks. Puts a smile on my face.
