These 90's Fashion Trends Are Back And Totally Make Our Moms Roll Their Eyes

The iconic decade of grunge and raves its on its peak of comeback.

As we're now settled in 2018, this years trends are starting to truly sink in. And it's the 90's baby. The iconic decade of grunge and raves has been on the climb again for awhile. But it seems this era is now at the peak of its comeback, especially when it comes to fashion. Now if you're lucky like me and you also have a generation X mom that lived through these trends the first time around; you've probably heard a groan or two on your latest shopping trip. Either way you know you're obsessed with anything and everything 90's. Now lets take a look at these rad fashion pieces that your mom can't believe are back in style.

1. Platform Sandals.

Not only were platforms a 90's necessity, but Steve Madden was just as crucial. Now they're back again and makes me wonder if they're just left over stock circa 1995? These may be one of the hottest shoes on the shelves, but I can't help but hear my mom and her friends saying these beauties and their never bending arch caused their chronic backpain...Oh well, we're saying it's worth!

2. Itsy Bitsy Sunglasses.

You know you've seen these before, they make an appearance resting on the nose of leading stars in every 90's movie ever made. Now they're back and we're not sure if anyone besides Kendall Jenner can pull them off anymore. But we're sure going to try!

3. Denim Denim Denim.

Now I know what you're thinking, denim is something that is forever in style. That may be true but the high waists, skirts, and pairing those jeans with a big chunky belt screams nothing but 90's.

4. Slip Dresses.

We're channeling major Cher from Clueless vibes in this 90's comeback. But who wouldn't want this chic, comfortable, and flirty combo for their go-to girls night out look?

5. Spaghetti Strap Crops.

Now, these are my personal favs, and every time I leave the house in one you can hear my mom saying "I had that literal exact top in college", or "how are those back?". Extra points for lace and pairing it with a choker.

I Went From Losing Weight To Lifting Weights, And Now I'm In The Best Shape Of My Life

How a change in my fitness goals changed my life.


I am in the best shape of my life...or at least I think so, and that's what truly matters.

I look in the mirror and feel confident.

I finally feel comfortable wearing crop tops, and I'm even starting to show visible abs. But getting here has been such a difficult journey filled with eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and other physical and mental struggles that hindered my ability to achieve my goals.

I have been on this health and fitness journey for many, many years now. I've been a size 00, a size 12, and every size in between.

Through it all, I have learned so much about myself, as well as fitness and nutrition in general. My biggest takeaway that led me to overcome all these obstacles was learning to let go of my perfectionism. When I'm old, I don't want to look back on my life and realize that I spent it all trying to lose weight. So, I changed my mindset.

My new focus was to be as strong as possible—to lift the heaviest weights, rather than losing the most weight. If you too, want to be in the best shape of your life but have struggled for so long, read my tips below.


I know, it sounds crazy. As women, we are constantly told about diets and cutting calories. If you just want to be skinny, you can do that. But if you want to be strong, you need to eat to be able to put on the muscle.


If you have struggled with eating disorders like me, satisfying your cravings will prevent you from having major setbacks.


Get your butt off that elliptical and into the weight room.


Again, especially if you want to build muscle, you need rest days. These are the days where your muscles are "actually" growing.


You will not see abs overnight. It takes a long time. But if you want sustainable results, you must treat your body right.

I hope these tips are helpful. With positivity and patience, you can achieve anything.
