13 Things To Wear To A 90’s Themed Party (Clothes, Hair, & Accessories)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re trying to figure out what the heck to wear to a 90s party. Never fear, my fellow 90s-obsessed friends, because I’ve got some tips and tricks to help you out.

First things first: why do we care so much about what we wear to a 90s party? Is it just because we want to look cool and impress all our friends?

While that’s definitely a perk, it’s also important to remember that a 90s party is all about celebrating the pop culture, fashion, and general awesomeness of that decade. So, if you’re going to a 90s party, it’s only fitting (pun intended) that you put in a little bit of effort to really embrace the theme.

But where do you even start with 90s fashion?

It’s not like you can just go to your local mall and find a store that’s exclusively dedicated to 90s-themed clothing (although you might find a few retro clothing stores in some places across the US). No, you’re going to have to dig a little deeper and get creative with your outfit. But don’t worry, that’s half the fun!

So, let’s start with the basics.

Some key clothing items that were popular in the 90s include slip dresses, overalls, high-waisted jeans, and crop tops. These are all great pieces to have in your wardrobe if you’re planning on attending a 90s party because they’re all super versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

But clothing is just the beginning – accessories are where you can really make your 90s outfit stand out. Chokers, bucket hats, and platform shoes are all must-haves for any self-respecting 90s fashionista.

Just make sure you don’t go too crazy with the accessories – less is definitely more when it comes to 90s fashion.

Finally, don’t forget about makeup! Bold lipstick shades and smokey eye makeup were all the rage in the 90s, so don’t be afraid to go a little crazy with your makeup. Just make sure you blend, blend, blend – nobody wants to look like they’ve been punched in the face with a makeup brush.

So there you have it, some basic tips for nailing your 90s party outfit. Now let’s go into detail about each of them.
