I still dress with a hint of 90's grunge fashion.
...And I've been waring Doc's for about 25 years now
Bought 2 more pairs 2 months ago (Doc Boots and shoes)

A shirt can be unfeminine, so can a skirt, a dress, a jacket, or boots.
Anything can be feminine or unfeminine depending on how and with what it is worn with.

And yes, they have been in fashion week, and have been considered part of fashion.




You're the one seem to have a problem with the difference between trendy and fashion
A trend IS fashion that happens at a certain time.

Grunge, for example, was a trend in fashion that happened primarily in the 90's.
Emo was a trend in fashion that happened in the early 2000's
Hipster is a trend in fashion that has been going on for the past few years
The cut off shirts you mentioned in Mean Girls was a trend in fashion that lasted less than 5 minutes in a movie.
That slip dress look was great! So comfy, too. Wish they still sold them....

I must admit I still have a thing for guys in plaid flannel shirts and that whole grunge-esque look.

Um acid washed jeans were circa 1987...maybe if you were down and out like me in high school you may have gotten away with wearing acid washed jeans in early 1991, but you would have not been caught dead wearing acid washed jeans in 92 and beyond, let alone jelly shoes that I remember my sisters wearing in 1983. Say what you will about the 90's, but damn I worked 16 hours a week in college and still made enough money on minimum wage to make a 150.00 car payment, buy gas, and I don't ever, ever remember having to ask my parents for money. Those were the days and I don't ever think we will pay 98cents a gallon for gas, again. Anyone here that is 35 or older knows what I am talking about! Say what you will about fashion from the 90's, at least we had money!!! I feel like the OP does about the 80's now that was what I look back at and think WTF was the hair, the clothes...just no, even the 80's had good music though!

I've fixed up 1990s PCs before, to the "specs" of those made in 2015. They were much more practical to use back then (well, Windows 95 and later), just with less speed and memory than those of today, thanks to the advent of microprocessors in the '90s. Things weren't so much less advanced than they are now, really. Windows 95, 98, and 2000 were certainly much better operating systems than 8.1. America's culture was much better than today's too.

My dream was to have a genuine Mary Quant dress but I only had a replica one... what I did have though was the knee high whie boots... almost white panstick face and lips and black eyes... my hair wouldnt sit right in a Mary Quant cut as it wasnt straight like hers..hipster skirts too were in, with fine polo necks and Hush Puppy laced up shoes.. never quite got that fashion and never felt dressed up to go dancing.. so went between that and straight fitted dresses or A line dresses with cut away shoulders,god I had a fur coat....how could I ... at 17...

The 1990s had the best cars too.

1999 was the best year in as far as the amount of good music released.

I assume not because you keep on with the passive-aggressive misspelling of the brand name.
This.

Fashion is closely related to the culture and heritage of the community, society and the taste of the local people. Old fashion is sometimes caring even to the 90s where I live. I like your topic that has been discussing.

No, 90s fashion was way more "80s" than people are willing to admit. You might think 1997 is a recent time, but really it's not.
