The 90's grunge always reminded me a bit of the 70's, at least with the plaid flannels and torn jeans. (Not so much the overly big, loose shirts. 70's tops were much more form-fitting.)

My sons (26 and 20) both wear much smaller shirts now, (and so do all the girls.)

That 90's 'baggy' look is over--though plaid still seems to be trendy.

I don't think either of my boys will ever embrace short-shorts.

Ah, high school. I used to hate the word "grunge" though, my bf and I made fun of that term. We were so above it all. Ha. Yes, I still see people dressed like that, less flannels and more skinny jeans, that's all.

It's come back around.

Ripped jeans & plaid are very "in" this year. It's been "updated" though. The baggy look is not accompanying it. Instead I see ripped skinny jeans and more fitted plaid shirts. The 80s have been resurrected for awhile, so it was only a matter of time until the early 90s came back. Generally, fashion goes back 20 years for inspiration, which puts us as 1989

I remember Corduroy and dockers khaki pants were popular in the mid-late 90's. In the early 90's overall's with one strap undone were also cool. Also Belly button piercing's became a hit in 1991 among teenage girls, young women, and was even briefly present among young men. This led to the introduction of belly shirts that left the belly uncovered to expose the belly button. Other types of body piercing became popular later in the decade, and lasted into the 2000s. I think most of the girls I know have this done but baby t-shirts and spaghetti strap tank tops are not popular anymore like they were in the 90's.also for us guys I rember starter sports jackets were very popular growing up.

I liked Marc Jacobs' take on grunge.

I have a thing for arm warmers and boots.
