Oh, the ’90s. It was a great time to be a pre-teen and teenager. I thought I was so cool and loved expressing myself with the trends of that time.

Here are 10 images that will take you right back to the ’90s.

1. Elephant pants

Why oh why was this a thing? They were cool at the time, though, I swear!

2. More elephant pants

I didn’t have a pair of these, but my friend did and the bottoms were always filthy and ripped from dragging on the floor!

I remember this catalogue and was convinced I needed a bunch of the items in it (I didn’t).

4. Fashion forward

I remember in ballet my classmate always had the coolest bobbles on her bun just like these! And I had about four of those chokers.

5. Bath beads

I used to play with these in the store while my mom shopped. They looked and felt so cool!

6. Coolest pencil case

Back to School shopping required a new Spacemaker pencil case every year.

7. UGH!

It’s a wonder my eyebrows grew back, to be honest. I seldom plucked them, but when I did I went really overboard!

8. Dial up…

I can still see each part of the image slowly coming down as I waited patiently. Now I can wait for anything!

9. Butterfly clips

Don’t forget to keep two pieces of your hair hanging down on the side of your face.

10. Vests, vests, vests

To be fair, these were at least better than the applique vests. Remember those?

Sometimes thinking back on the ’90s makes me cringe, but I usually just smile.
