If you weren’t rocking a grunge or minimalistic style in the ’90s, you were probably sporting a hip-hop outfit. Popular in urban areas, hip-hop fashion was represented by overside, loose silhouettes, casual fabrics, and sports details. Like grunge, the style corresponded with the music genre of the same name. As such, hip-hop stars were icons of this style and provided the best outfit inspiration.
The runways have spoken, and the '90s are back. So are the '80s. And the '70s. There are also a couple fashion trends that can't be traced back to any particular decade, but are covetable nonetheless.

The style guides suddenly stopped mentioning these, and they became extinct. And, that’s why we have to explain what this is about now. Fine – they were just a pair of airy, comfortable, cotton denim pants that sat beautifully at the waist and were out near the thighs (unlike the painfully tight ones). There are a lot of variations, but this breathable pair of trousers is something we all need, and it’s time they were revived, at least as an option to some of us.
Supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss catapulted the slip dress to new levels of infamy in the '90s. It's no secret that the last decade of the 20th century was all about minimalism in every sense of the word. But this '90s fashion trend proved just how minimal style could truly go. Slip dresses left little to the imagination, hugging every curve.

A bit of extra fabric at the top of the sleeve at Koché created an effect that was somehow both structured and slouchy. It was all about the way the fabric extended the shoulders and fell sharply, which appeared powerful but not rigid.
