Fashion trends are constantly being recycled from previous decades and now the good old 90s are back in trend. The 90s style started as a non-conformity approach as a way for the youth to express themselves. The grunge trend became popular really fast. The preppy look is a direct contrast to the grunge style.

The preppy look is a fun and vibrant trend. It becomes popular with the 90s movie Clueless. You can see the main female characters sporting plaid-skirt suits, knee-high stockings and patent Mary Janes. Every teenage girl wanted to be Cher, Dionne or Tai.
