Throwback: The Ugly 90s Denim Round-Up


The ’90s have been back in action style-wise for a few years now thanks to a wave of nostalgia that made it okay to walk around major metropolitan areas dressed like Zack Morris again. But when you dig a little deeper past the idea of acid wash, neon, and trapper-keepers, you find that the most basic style lines and silhouettes of the ’90s actually did get left behind. And with good reason. Enjoy these vintage ’90s magazine ads (mostly for mass market brands) and the denim atrocities they have immortalized.

Would You Wear This Unisex Collection Inspired By ’90s Silhouettes?


April77 is a French unisex sportswear line with an emphasis on cotton corduroy, open end denim, oxford, cotton twill, and gabardine. While you may think pop-colors and acid wash when the ’90s come into mind, their fall 2011 collection tells a different kind of story: one more along the lines of grunge rock’n'roll and oversized button-up shirts. Cuffed straight-leg jeans, dark washes, and worn-in denim jackets are some of the gems you’ll find in this line. They’ll ship the US and their styles include muted colors, skinny fits, raw denim, and Japanese selvedge. Prices range from around $100 to $200.

Throwback Pattern Clashing And Denim In Nylon Magazine September 2011


We are loving this editorial out of the pages of Nylon Magazine lensed by Andrew Yee featuring some killer throwback 80s meets 90s pattern clashing looks. Our favorite pick includes a clever mix of florals, sexy polka dots, faux fur, and a pair of shredded denim short shorts. And though that’s pretty much the only denim used, we ain’t gonna lie we can’t get enough of the overall whimsical style of it all—gaudy accessories totally included. Check out the rest of the looks below!

Double Denim In ‘90s Propa Skincare Ad


Double denim is such a current, happening thing that you might forget how not cool it would have been to wear it two years ago.  Here to remind you of where this trend originated from is a ’90s ad for Propa PH, a skincare solution marketed towards young women. The young women pictured lounges in double denim, letting her friend in on the secret of how she got a date with the hottest guy in school. Her answer is the advertised product, but we bet it was actually her double D’s.

…Oh man, what a knee slapper!

When it comes to vintage-cool looks blogger Luanna of Peru has it all figured out. We crush over all of her retro-made-modern looks, but this one is definitely our favorite. Her oversized vintage acid wash denim jacket cuffed at the sleeve looks killer over this undeniably cute off-white crochet dress. We ain’t gonna lie—this perfect 80s meets 90s mix (which totally has us feeling a bit nostalgic) has us planning our next thrifting spree ASAP!

Flashback! Colored Denim In The ’90s


’90s trends are back in action, from later version of the hammer-pant to acid-wash and pastel hair dye. Flipping through old magazines from the ’90s is both a bizarre and exciting experience (unless you were just being born in 1996, and weren’t a tween in the age of some of TV’s best programs ever…). As sentimental as we wish we could get, one look at what fashion editorials in the ’90s were actually passing off as fashionable is enough to hit your gag reflex. Check out this mustard-yellow denim-on-eyelet-cotton ensemble, for instance. It means well, with its spring hues and the model’s confusing pose (laughing, itching—what is she doing?), but the end product looks more like a kid’s TV show host than street-savvy.

But then again, that more or less sums up the ’90s, doesn’t it? Stay tuned for more days-gone-by denim coverage! We’re more or less addicted to it.

CeCe Yoost Brings Grunge Denim Back in No. Magazine


The grunge trend has come back on the scene several times since it died in the ’90s, its endless appeal associated with early MTV, sneaking backstage at concerts, and living the life of a high school rebel with a flannel shirt and a lot of eye liner. And while those things may not sound appealing to those with a taste more chic, there’s a bit of too-cool-to-care in all of us that can relate to an editorial like this one. CeCe Yoost embodies the ultimate grunge-glam element in No. Magazine (shot by Karen Inderbitzen-Waller), with the no-fail ingredients mentioned above and an untamed helping of denim separates.
