I took a stroll through one of our friendly neighborhood malls this past weekend - something I don't do very often since I'm addicted to indie boutiques - and felt like I had been transported 20 years in the past. The H&M looked like the wardrobe trailer from the first season of Friends and floral reigned supreme. I knew '90s was trending, but had no idea how hard people were rocking the look.

I used to laugh at my mom and aunts when they would lament that everything they wore in high school was back in style as they peered into my closet. "You guys are so old...ha," I would say, reveling in my youth. Now, the sartorial chickens have come home to roost.

The '90s are back in a big way and the styles are perfect for this summer's festival season. Here are a few of my faves.

Overalls The '90s classic has made a comeback no one expected.

Floral Dresses I think Monica wore this one in Episode 10.

Crop Tops I'm all over this one.

Bodysuits I never in a million years thought I would see a bodysuit in a store again. I almost lost it on this one.

Backpacks Yup. In all types and colors.

Plaid I think I only ever wore my plaid button down around my waist.

Chunky Shoes Super comfy, but not very chic.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
