Look, I was alive in the 90s. I remember jelly sandals, crop tops, and acid wash jeans. When I look back at those photos now I wonder what on Earth were we all thinking? At least the 60s and 70s offered some modern takes on classic pieces, but the 90s is a free for all, straight out of an acid trip, neon and floral printed nightmare. I saw a rack of printed ladies pants the other day reminiscent of Zubaz:

Do you remember Zubaz?
I do. Let's not relive that decade.

Hell no, let the 90s return, sucks it's hard to find vi ntage 90s clothes. There's a store in town that still has a lot of old 90s stock Fila and la gear shoes, even has the original displays still up on the wall, from then. Sadly, none of them are in my shoe size.

The 90s was backed with minimalism and ath-leisure. Those pants were leftover from the 80s.

Agreed. All the stuff the OP mentioned was big in the 80s. Some places are behind fashion-wise. I assume OP lives/lived in such a place.

Those pants look like fun. Not taking oneself too seriously. They may have been part of the very early 90s, but once "grunge" hit everything went minimal and brownish. I remember wearing polka dots in the early 90s, some bright colors and other stuff was still 80s style.

Stuff like this is still sold in quite a few catalogs.

They look like Crazy Pants. I used to wear those. They were hideous even then, but so comfortable.

I actually really like 90s fashion. Especially early to mid 90s. I absolutely hate where fashion is today.

I didn't particularly enjoy the 80s, either. I actually kind of liked the 70s styles that came back in the late 90s. That stuff was comfortable. You know what I do miss about the 90s grunge era? The hairstyles. No fancy cuts, and you could roll out of bed with your hair tousled and that was that.
