Even two-plus decades removed, nothing hits quite like throwbacks from the ’90s. Between nostalgic sitcoms, classic hip-hop, our favorite boy bands, and, yes, even mom jeans, the iconic, rhinestone-embellished era is the decade that just keeps on giving, no matter how old we get. But even more so, the ’90s gave us some of the hottest looks that also double as the perfect Halloween costumes.
Every year like clockwork, all of us ’90s kids are grown adults until spooky season comes around. Then it’s time to raid our closets and local thrift stores for fashions to help us dress up like our favorite ’90s characters, pop icons, or famous movie stars. If you miss your childhood days, get nostalgic by dressing up in a costume that reminds you of the grunge-infused era. Whether that’s the Spice Girls, TLC, Dionne and Cher from “Clueless,” Janet Jackson from “Poetic Justice,” or Elaine from “Seinfeld,” dressing as someone who reminds us of arguably the best decade of all time is always a great idea.
From ’90s TV shows to music videos, the possibilities are endless! Give your Halloween costume a blast from the past with some of the fun ideas ahead.
