I don’t know if there is a lot of Millennials don’t love a good ’90s throwback.
But if you’re anyone who loves to keep up with the latest fashion trends, you’ve likely noticed that there seems to be a resurgence of ’90s aesthetics.
From grunge-inspired looks to low cut denim pants, Instagram is now awash with modern takes on classic ’90s looks.
But what exactly are the hottest looks that are taking over the platform? Let’s take a look.
The Denim Jacket Look
One of the most popular items of clothing from the ’90s was the denim jacket - and it’s making a comeback styled into several different aesthetics.
Of course, On Insta it is never your average plain jean jacket; these days, it’s all about super oversized fits paired with crop tops, and unique details like the boho jacket embroidered patches or frayed edges.
Worn over an all-black outfit is the easiest way, but there are more ways to make this look turn heads.

The 90s Grunge Look
Grunge with its dark checker and Kurt Cobain sweaters was huge in the ’90s, and now it’s back.
This look is all about mixing flannel shirts and ripped jeans for an edgy, devil-may-care vibe.
To really make this look stand out, make sure to mix in some bright colors like red, orange, and yellow. They give off a retro feel while also keeping things upbeat, which is the current thing.
Finish off the outfit with some chunky boots or sneakers for an extra touch of attitude.

The 90s Slip Dress Trend
The glam of that decade was either the super overstated going out top, or the skin tight slip.
Slip dresses were everywhere in the ’90s! But today they’ve taken on a whole new life of their own, thanks to Instagram fashion, of course.
The key to nailing this trend is in styling; pairing slip dresses with turtlenecks or cropped sweaters gives them a modern Scandi minimalism update while still retaining some retro vibes.
And don’t forget accessories; statement earrings and necklaces can take any slip dress from basic to aesthetic in no time at all!
