    We’re suckers for nostalgia over here at NYLON. We would give anything to relive our Lip Smackers and Lisa Frank days, and be transported back to a time when Saved by the Bell was a fashion inspiration with all its wonderful silhouettes and patterns. From colorful and glitzy graphics of the late ’80s to the grungy dark colors and denim of the ’90s, we’re all about a fashion throwback.

    Nowadays, brands like Brian Lichtenberg use graphics to their advantage, putting a modern spin on images that were iconic in the last two decades of the 20th century. His Medusa Destroyed tee takes direct inspiration from Nirvana’s smiley face shirt, adding to the vintage vibe with ripped fabric. Oversized, acid wash denim pieces are solid options if you’re looking to channel your inner grunge queen. “Shimmy to the left if you’re having a good time” because metallics and glitter are details that can certainly “spice up your life.” And of course, don’t forget to top it all off with a dark lip from MDMflow, a vampy signature beauty look of the ’90s.

    Check out the gallery below for apparel that will make you want to rewatch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and My So-Called Life, now available at NYLONshop.
