“Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.” Ted “Theodore” Logan ("Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure") Although technically released in 1989, the classic comedy about two time traveling teenagers and a phone booth, transitioned pop culture into a decade of eclectic and quirky fashion trends. If recent runway predictions are true, then the 90’s are back and today’s trendiest fashion designers are turning back the clock for inspiration. Let’s hop in our magic phone booth and visit the style icons of the past to predict the celebrity fashion trends of the future.

Icon: Jennifer Aniston

It is yet to be seen whether or not the "Friends" star’s iconic hairstyle will ever be back in fashion, but the staples of Rachel Green’s wardrobe are definitely making a comeback.

  • Overalls 
  • Chunky platform shoes 
  • Slip dresses

Tip: Wear a fitted t-shirt under slip dresses if you are worried about showing too much skin.

Icon: Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani’s platinum blonde hair may be her signature look now, but Gwen rocked electric blue hair paired with an array of colorful bindis in the late 90’s.

  • Funky hair color
  • Bindis

Tip: Use clear-drying eyelash glue to adhere the bindis to your skin.

Icon: Victoria Beckham

“Posh Spice” may have been the more demure member when she joined the Britpop girl group in 1994, but all of the Spice Girls are sources of fashion inspiration.

  • Crop tops
  • Baby bee” hair buns 
  • Iridescent fabrics

Tip: Pair iridescent fabrics with a neutral color to make this bold look more wearable.

Icon: Carmen Electra

The sexy "Baywatch" actress often sported edgy leather and chain accessories.

  • Biker cap 
  • Chunky metal accessories 
  • Bomber jacket

Tip: Coat chrome plated accessories with a thin layer of clear nail polish to protect the finish.

Icon: Cindy Crawford

The striking model’s famous pout dominated the decade’s magazine covers.

  • Bold lipstick 
  • Sexy tousled hair

Tip: Revlon still makes Cindy’s signature brick brown lipstick shade “Toast of New York.”

That concludes our tour of the 90’s most iconic fashion trends. Style is cyclical, and it is only a matter of time before what was old becomes new again, but whatever the future of celebrity fashion in 2013 may hold let us remember the wise words of George Carlin’s character “Rufus” and, “Be excellent to each other.”
