1990s Fashion Flashback

The '90s are back in a big, bold way this fall, as many of us are throwing our fashion picks back to the decade known for The Spice Girls, Britney Spears, TLC, Beverly Hills 90210, Friends and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Here's a snapshot of what's coming back:

The Cream of the Crop
With Taylor Swift and Kourtney Kardashian rocking them at red carpet events, it's no wonder that crop tops are back. These sexy cut-offs will be all the rage this fall, especially if you have six-pack abs! (If not, you can wear one under a button-up shirt or short coat and still be on trend.)

All Over Again
Some might say there is nothing sexy or even cute about big, floppy overalls, but they'd be wrong. Expect to see these 1990s throwbacks a lot this fall – especially ripped, light blue ones. Grunge is also back, this time in a more tapered way. Fitted flannel shirts, ripped jeans and old-school band t-shirts (think Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and Pearl Jam) are sure to make a big splash.

Fancy Pants
Bold trousers and other wide-legged pants are also back this fall. They are loud, and they are proud (think disco lame) and best for women who are tall, says celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe. (Don't worry, they are much more flattering than the Hammer-style parachute pants of the 1990s.)

And while some 1990s styles are making comebacks, others are decidedly not; so whatever you do, no more fanny packs, crimped hair or bucket hats – at least not yet.


What to Think
Before You Ink

Tattoos and body art are hotter than ever. It's tempting, but before you commit make sure that you don't have any immediate plans to hit the beach. And that's not all you need to consider before getting inked. Get the rest of the scoop here:

Do any of the at-home low-level laser devices that I see advertised really help regrow hair?

These devices can help prevent hair fallout and thinning, but only if you use them properly. They work by boosting blood flow and circulation within the scalp. Most doctors recommend the Laser Cap, a wearable unit that covers the entire top of the scalp. It sells for $3,000 (and no, insurance doesn't cover the cost). Before you commit to a device, see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who specializes in hair loss to find out what is causing yours.
