Historicism --- The 1990's

Before grunge really took hold and muddied fashion's palette for the next decade, the early nineties continued to embrace the bright colors of the decade before it. Colorful, often fluorescent t-shirts with high-energy graphics paired with Umbros shorts and scrunchies were the de rigeur styling of many the casual 90's man, woman and child. Above are 2 tshirts currently for sale at Delia's. Below, a still from the classic 90's TV show show and fashion inspiration, "Clarissa Explains It All", on air from 1991-1994.
