23 Pins and Patches To Make You The Trendiest 90s Kid Ever

Fashion is perpetually in retrograde. No bygone era is exempt from the whims of nostalgia and old favorites are always being revived and revamped. Calling the ’90s retro still kind of feels like using a picture from last week as a #throwbackthursday. Weren’t we wearing overalls just five years ago, or was it 15? Maybe grunge is simply back from a brief hiatus, yet with the particularly triumphant comeback of the choker and uber- accessorized denim duds, it seems to be having a major moment. As if you weren’t having enough of a flashback moment, decorated denim is reminiscent of the summers of childhood when summer camp trinkets–stacks of friendship bracelets, braided lanyards–were all the rage, and is appropriately playful for the summer months when it seems nostalgia will inevitable seep through the seams. Before you foray into full throwback mode, accessorizing with a cool cluster of pins and patches is the perfect ode to the ’90s.
