It would be considered 'tomboyish' now. Sports jerseys/oversized woollen sweaters, singlet tank-tops etc were pretty much the same, baggier jeans/pants, plaid, stockings also seemed to be prominent. I kinda dug that look, it made girls seem more chilled out than now where everything is so tight it looks like it's cutting off their blood supply.

Not at all. Yuck. Singlet tank tops? Can you post a picture of what one of those looks like? I dont think I know what that is.

I dig and prefer women who are either in style now - i.e., they are with current fashion trends, OR, the have their own sense of style.

If I see a woman walking around in fashion from the 90s or early 00s I'd think she's either old, not hip, or lacks fashion sense.

I have never thought of anything women wear of todays fashion as "cutting off their blood supply". People work very hard to take care of their bodies now days so good for them being confident in themselves to show it by wearing form fitting clothes. Besides, every women I have ever talked to who wear these form fitting clothes, yoga pants, tights, etc. say they are super comfortable while still being fashion forward.

I prefer women who don't get sucked into buying whatever they are told to by so called fashion experts. If anyone can give a sensible explanation as to why clothing "style" needs to change every year I'd like to hear it.

I kind of miss that look too to be honest with you. The 90s clothes just had a chill out lets have fun not trying to impress contest to it. I mean it was still some tight clothes back then but everything felt so meshed to together neither one over the other.

Some 90s women's fashion was very girly though, especially the babydoll dresses, floral dresses and skirts, opaque tights, tight little tshirts, then later the midriff baring tops etc

My wife wears Talbots and Brooks Brothers for both the office and for casual wear.

This look is timeless and will never go out of style.

If I was single I would never date a woman who was manipulated by the whims of shallow media heads as to what is desirable to wear and whats not.

My wife looks like she belongs to the country club because she does.

No, women looked plain and vanilla then. Many of them also looked like manly lesbians.
