There's been a thread like this before where I mentioned them trouser things with the skirt attached to them and no one else remembered them and I feel like I must of made some bad fashion item up in my head but I remember them vividly! Hideous they were.

Sun In sometimes it seemed like it took the whole secondary school time to grow the sun in out of their curtains

EVERYTHING in the mid to late nineties was Spice Girls. Lollypops, cans of fizzy drink, magazines, top of the pops, the cinema. It was spice everything!

yolothankgod Tue 04-Feb-14 16:56:44

Oh god yes Curtains , whatever possessed every male in the world to have that hairstyle it was horrific

Cycle Shorts were fashionable as well confused

Tretorn trainers.
Sperry topsiders.
Bass Weejuns.
Vuarnet t-shirts.

I loved Party of Five. I was going to marry Bailey.

Also those bomber jackets with the orange lining (I never had owned one) and all the boys getting banned from wearing Spliffy jeans to school on non uniform days.

StrawberryMoose Tue 04-Feb-14 17:00:27

*never owned one

DownstairsMixUp Tue 04-Feb-14 17:01:02

Bootcut jeans were big weren't they? I remember them always dragging along the floor under flat shoes. Much prefer skinnies.

startwig1982 Tue 04-Feb-14 17:01:56

Oh yes white musk and cool water was a thing too. Christian slater seems to have disappeared of late!
It was all about bands, boy or girl.
Spice girls
Boyzone
Take that
