The 90s were an interesting time especially on the fashion scene and at a time when social media was non-existent, the Nigerian film stars were the main influencers taking fashion risks and boldly setting trends.
From outrageous wigs and braids, disturbingly tight low-rise pants and blouses down to their riotous makeup and excessive use of jewelries, the 90s was an era filled with numerous fashion highlights.
However, as ridiculous as some of these trends may appear to some people now, there are some 90s trends that are slowly taking over the fashion scene once again and it seems a lot of people are here for them.
Below are six 90s fashion trends back in vogue:
Back in the 90s, the designated bad boy or thug in a Nollywood film either had a durag on or a bandana tied in an askew manner.
These days, it has become a norm for even ladies to wear it as it isn't just a fashion statement but also used as a grooming material to form hair waves.
Nigerian artists such as Teni, Fireboy, are lovers of the Durag.
2. Bandana and tie-back tops
