The 1990s was an era where anything went and dressing up in this decade could be just as fun as wearing any other. It’s worth noting that we’re talking about the decade as a whole when considering what clothes to wear for 90s fancy dress parties – from 1990 all the way through 1999. While many people associate “the 90s” with grunge fashion, styling your outfit this way will immediately date your costume unless you want it to look like a Halloween costume or simply something from 3 years ago!

Instead, consider how each year differed from one another: In the early 90s (1990), people were still dressing in their 80s garms but had begun wearing more bright colors like pink and blue instead of pastels; later on in 1993 (1993) things started getting more colourful again after grunge hit its peak; then in 1995 (1995) everyone was going crazy over tie dye shirts while rave culture became popularised by films like Trainspotting (1996).

Start by thinking about your favorite decade, whether it’s grunge, pop or new wave.

Start by thinking about your favorite decade, whether it’s grunge, pop or new wave. Remember the music you loved? The movies? The way people dressed? You can have a lot of fun with this one!

When you think about 90s fashion and culture, what are some of your first thoughts? Do you remember when everyone was into all things grunge-y? Or were you more into pop stars like Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey? Maybe you loved to watch Friends on TV every night after school and wanted to dress like Rachel Green as much as possible (which might be more difficult now than ever).

Asking yourself these questions will help guide your current wardrobe choices for costume parties or Halloween celebrations in October.

Consider the whole decade, from 1990 to 1999, and your aim should be to look like you’ve stepped straight out of one of those years.

When it comes to clothing, it’s important to think about the whole decade. The 80s were a time of excess and glamor, with bold colors and glitzy fabrics. The 90s saw grunge take over, bringing in washed-out denim and ripped t-shirts. Pop music was at its peak during this period, so pop culture references were everywhere—from flannels to overalls to Doc Martens boots!

So how do you incorporate these trends into your look? If you’re going for something more casual or sporty-chic (think: “Winston Smith”) then try layering up with long sleeve shirts underneath loose turtlenecks or vests over short sleeve ones. And don’t forget those matching track pants!

Whether you’re looking for a girl’s outfit or a boy’s outfit – you can’t go wrong with a combination of the following items…

Whether you’re looking for a girl’s outfit or a boy’s outfit – you can’t go wrong with a combination of the following items:

  • A flannel button up shirt and some jeans
  • A plain white tank top or tee, and some shorts (or leggings) in any color
  • A bomber jacket or leather jacket
  • Doc Martens or combat boots (if it’s cold out)

For girls… A black crop top. A lace blouse. A denim jacket

To really nail the 90s vibe, you need to wear some clothes that are clearly from that era. For girls, a black crop top is a great choice to show off your midriff and give it a grungy feel. A lace blouse can also be worn with this look if you have one lying around your house—just make sure it isn’t too bright or else it will look more like an outfit from the 80s than the 90s. Another option is a denim jacket: if you don’t have one already but would like to get one specifically for this theme party, try looking at thrift stores or even secondhand stores in your area (as long as they sell clothes), because they’re usually cheaper than buying them new!

A tartan miniskirt is another item that was popular during this time period—it’s perfect if you’re trying to achieve that “I’m wearing my mom’s old wardrobe” look without having any actual clothes from your mom’s old wardrobe! You could also opt for drapey grunge layers instead of something shorter like jeans; these will flatter many different body types since they’re loose-fitting and flowy around curves without being too tight or revealing anywhere else on their bodies either.”

Other ideas include babydoll dresses (they were very popular back then) or platform shoes or chunky heels so people know how cool you really are! You can also throw some green hair spray into all those beautiful curls!”

A tartan miniskirt. Drapey grunge layers. A babydoll dress (think Clueless).

A tartan miniskirt, loose layers of grunge clothing, and a baby doll dress (think Clueless) are all classic 90s looks.

If you’re feeling bold, try the tartan skirt with a crop top and leather jacket. If you want to keep it low-key, go for some denim overalls and a floral print shirt.

For that grungy look, pair your plaid skirt with an oversized sweater or flannel shirt. To complete your look, throw on some Doc Martens or combat boots—you know the ones! And don’t forget earrings that reach down to your shoulders; they’ll make your outfit pop!

Platform shoes or chunky heels (think Spice Girls). Green hair spray. Flared jeans. We love these outfits from ASOS!

As far as clothing goes, the best thing to do is go chunky. Think platform shoes or chunky heels (think Spice Girls).

Green hair spray is also a must-have accessory in order to achieve that perfect 90’s look.

Don’t forget accessories such as a beret, hairclips and a choker! Makeup also plays an important role in this look. To complete your outfit, match it with some cool accessories like cufflinks or tie clips! Last but not least don’t forget about finding a friend to dress up with you!

There are some great options for 90s costumes!

If you’re looking for a simple way to get creative, there’s no need to shell out big bucks on an expensive outfit. A lot of 90s style is still available in shops and online, so you can easily find what you need without breaking the bank.

If thrifting isn’t your thing, there are plenty of ideas for making a unique look that won’t cost as much money. Most stores have some great deals on clothes from previous decades—so if you’re interested in dressing up as someone like Kurt Cobain or Britney Spears, check out what they had back then! You may just find something you love at a fraction of the price it would cost today.
