Fashion recycles itself; grunge is trendy this year. I always found high fashion grunge to be an oxymoron.

Merino instead of ragg wool. Cotton-Modal thermal instead of poly-blend. That's all.

Not that I'd spend $300.00 on a flannel anything...

WHY???????????

You should move to the Pacific NW, then. Though not quite as prevalent as it was then, that look is still a pretty common sight here.

I hated holes in pants even in the 60's. Guess I saw no point in intentionally looking 'poor'.

I like flannel shirts. They have a simple look and design, and they are comfortable. Of course the 90's wasn't about grunge. There is also what I like to call the "Friends" look, where the guys have thick hair in layers, and the girls had the Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) hairdo. I also liked how Rachel usually wore tight mini-skirts with black pantyhose and heels or flats, and many girls dressed the same way. I also noticed tight mini-dresses coming back in the last few years, which was the look of the early 90's, and late 80's.

^ The "bandage" dresses, yeah. Legwear has come back in again also. First it was tights & leggings, but nylons are creeping back also. Oh, and knee socks have been popping up, which reminds me of Cher in Clueless.

I did, for a little while, when I was in high school (my senior year; 1994). I liked it. It was very laid back, did take long to get dressed, and the hair was flowing naturally.

But then, the last 3 months before I graduated, I went blonde and had a different look (got a hair cut too and wore some very feminine clothes; I went into the "Marilyn Monroe" phase then).

But I remember when, in the 90's, a lot of girls then teased our hair (our bangs had lots of hairspray in it!!). We'd make it really high and tight so it would never droop down. Gosh! Those were the days!
