What is the difference between the fashion of the 90's and the fashion now? And was the fashion in the 00's distinct from both as well?

Jeans have gone from extra baggy to extra tight; They still sag.

I guess I can donate all of my too-tight pants to the 16 year old skater kids down by the beach

90's Grunge is over, thank god! Hip-hop has evolved and become more mainstream now. High Heels have gone from 2.5/3 inches in the 1990's to 4 inches and higher. The Frankenstein shoe is also out of fashion now. Neon has come back unfortunately from the 90's to haunt us. And let's hope the Melrose Place mini-suit never comes back around. I could not believe how many women added this to their work wardrobe back in the '90s.

Logo tee
Umbro shorts
Keds

Something like this with keds or tevas was really popular:


And lots of layering:

Later in the 90s it was all about the black boot cut pants. And there were a lot of faded jeans.

I didn't delve much into the whole grunge-as-fashion scene (was a senior in HS when Cobain died, but never felt an affinity for the man or his music in any way)....no elephant bells, no knit caps, no layered thermal shirts under tees, no flannel), but a lot of people did. I did do (and still do) random hats, cardigans (again, still do cardigans, I just rarely tie them around my waist anymore), and would still wear floral babydoll dresses paired with combat boots/Docs, personally. As a HS senior in the mid-90s, I wore wide-legged jeans (but not extreme...more a carpenter or trouser cut), fitted scoop-neck ballet tops (sometimes they were bodysuits, hah, and often crushed velvet), lug sole maryjane shoes that I would still wear if I had 'em, velvet chokers with faux-victorian charms (they looked like cat collars, hee), and most of the girls wore our hair long and straight and all one length (the "Rachel" haircut was a couple of years from coming out, but that was everywhere in the late 90s, with its layers).

I still see guys with baggy pants with their behinds sticking out or some still wear over sized shirts with puffy sneakers and big brim baseball caps.

One thing I don't see anymore is high waisted jeans or super low rise jeans.

I remember the '90s as being all about black. Black, black, black. Blacker than the blackest black. Like they say nowadays, "it's the new black!"

Dark lipstick was a '90s thing too. Dark brown, or really deep merlot-coloured lipstick. And dark nail polish became a trend for the first time. Urban Decay was the first brand to take it mainstream, it started as a grunge thing.

Early 2000s fashion, for me the trend that stands out is the drift towards more bohemian, earth-loving hippie stuff. I'm still stuck in that rut. I need a style update. Not that I was terribly stylish to start with, but it's a look that I'm getting tired of.
