Denim tends to never get out of trend. According to, denim has become a new smart dress code at work, as well as other, casual places, but, here, we are talking about jackets. The patchy, oversized denim jackets are back in town and we have seen several singers and celebrities wearing these 90s jackets in music videos or casual outwear.

Patches on denim jackets and denim pants were a cool thing, especially since it was believed to be a famous way of expressing a person’s personality. But, with the beginning of the new century, this trend seemed to be lost in the cloud, however, this trend is now coming back.

2. High Waist Pants

The 90s were literally the era of high-waist lovers and new fashion gurus make sure that the new decade also becomes an era for high-waist pants. The contemporary high-waist jeans have had some major modifications over the years. Add-ons with several buttons in the place of the zipper, these jeans are perfect for wearing anytime and anywhere.

3. Bum Bags

With the latest upgrade, this 90s fashion really looks appealing on the waist.

4. Chain Belts

If you are a millennial then you might remember the days when we used to wear chain belts on a casual dress day at school or at someone’s party – and they are even cooler with the denim jeans. Of course, not all people are fans of this accessory trend, but, they were a huge hit in the 90s and they are probably going to be a hit trend in 2024 as well. Chain belts can easily be combined with ripped jeans, one-piece (LBD), or even the latest pinstripes pants.

5. Velvet

Well, the 90s fabric trend is now back and people seem to really love it. Some major Hollywood celebrities have been spotted wearing velvet dresses and blazers, and needless to say, they rocked the style flawlessly.

6. Chunky Trainers

Back in that era, chunky trainers were used to be called “ugly” or “dad” trainers. Some people really enjoyed wearing them, some thought they weren’t cool in the 90s but this footwear trend is now back. Colorful chunky trainers are being offered by all the big footwear brands and celebrities such as Kendal Jenner and Bella Hadid have been seen killing this retro style.

7. Scrunchies

Scrunchies are some of the 90s accessories that haven’t gone out of trend completely. If you remember, in the 90s, kids with hair accessories were considered cool in school and it has become a new trend these days. Recently, we have seen Lara Jean’s – the lead character from Netflix’s “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” – love for scrunchies, and now, Balenciaga has launched this accessory with a modern twist for sale.

These glasses were once considered nerdy and funny, however, nowadays, they are making a drastic comeback.
