This is true..I had an eyebrow and tongue piercing in 94 was was looked at like a total freak lol

I agree. 1994 in terms of fashion is much, much closer to that of 1986. In 1994, having big, puffy hair was still popular (though on its last leg), and tattoos as well as piercings weren't really THAT mainstream until a little bit later (maybe 1996 or 97).

More like 2000.

I was a 15 year old boy in '94, bit I remember the bleached relaxed fit jeans being popular, along with plaid shirts with the hoodies (think Boy Meets World TV show). Kurt Cobain was super popular then.

Which fashion? Sweater vests? Grunge? Pop idol mimicking people? Jerry Seinfeld look? There were many different looks, some of which were unique to the 90s. The mom jeans were very 80s.

What sticks out to me is the bright neon of 86. In 94 you could not find a bright color to save your life. Y2K was not as bright as 86 so i vote Y2K.

It was a cross between 1986 and 2000. Jeans/pants and shirts were loose fitting (2000) but also pressed and neat (1986).
