Men’s Fashion Trends for the 90s

Fashion in the 1990s was characterized by a rejection of the aging decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, as priority shifted to body piercing, tattooing, and branding. The dress code prominently changed to the casual jeans, T-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts and hooded jackets. Here is a look at some of the top fashion trends for the men in the golden 90s.

In the 1990s men were tempted to adopt the tough Macho personality, probably to unleash the wild, manly nature in them. They enjoyed wearing tight fitting leather jackets, leather pants, and leather coats. The Combative Army and Black Leather Jackets became increasingly sought after.

Baggy Trousers and Jeans

With the increasing popularity of hip-hop music, its influence swept widely among the hip-hop fans. The hip-hop culture characterized by loose, sagging baggy jeans and baggy pants were at play. Dull shades of blue, gray and black were equally embraced. Hip hop lovers wore low waist trousers displaying boxer shorts with the Calvin Klein label.

Any crazy person would be forgiven for thinking that the wearer of the mood ring was actually engaged or married. The name even seemed to suggest that the color of the ring changed with the mood of the wearer. If you never sported this ring in the 1990s, you certainly aren’t trendy.
