Here’s the deal: if you’re going to a 90s party, you don’t have to wear anything from that decade. But there are some things that will help you look like a true throwback babe–and here’s what I recommend:
What to wear: to a 90s party
If you want to wear a 90s shirt, make sure it’s a good one. If it’s a crop top or something that looks like it came from H&M, don’t bother. You’ll look like an idiot—unless of course, you are wearing the exact same thing as everyone else but with different shoes and accessories (in which case go ahead). If you have any other questions about what exactly constitutes “a good 90s shirt,” message me at once!
How to dress for a 90s party
- Wear a 90s-style costume.
- Wear a 90s-style dress.
- Wear a 90s-style shirt.
- Wear a 90s-style jacket.
- Wear a pair of retro shoes that have the right shape and size to match the rest of your outfit (but not so much they’re uncomfortable).
Throwback fashion tips
Throwback fashion tips:
- Wear a bright color.
- Wear a bold print.
- Wear a patterned dress or top, but not both at the same time! You can always go for more of one thing and less of another if you want to be more daring but don’t want to look like an over-the-top 80s party girl (if that’s what you’re going for).
- If you have sleeves on your dress and aren’t wearing anything underneath it, consider adding some jewelry or finishing touches like accessories and shoes that match the outfit’s theme—for example if it’s 90s music night then wear an earring shaped like a microphone or necklace made out of cables used during recording sessions back then!
You can wear anything from the 80s, early 90s and even the late 80s.
It’s important to remember that you don’t have to stick with one style. You could go for an all-over print dress and platform shoes, or if you’re feeling frisky, pair your favorite denim skirt with a lace bodysuit and some shoulder pads.
It’s important to note that this list is by no means exhaustive. We’re only covering some of the most obvious trends and styles from the 90s, so you should feel free to mix and match these looks with whatever you already have in your wardrobe. If you want something more modern or a little edgier, then go for it! The point is just to dress up for an old-school party that doesn’t require much effort on your part (which will save time).
