When it comes to fashion, it’s no surprise that trends from the ’80s and ’90s are back in style. It’s been said that trends are cyclical in nature and will eventually make their way back into the mainstream, and in 2018, many throwback looks have proven to be more relevant than ever. Grunge-inspired pieces, slip dresses and high-waisted pants are all common threads and are easily traceable through popular films from the era. Follow along as we recall 12 unforgettable throwback films with the best, and most relevant, style:

12. Dazed and Confused — 1993

Although Dazed and Confused was released in 1993, the movie was set to take place in the ’70s. The bell-bottom pants, cropped tops and middle-parted hairstyles were an undeniably accurate reflection of the era, which is what made the fashion in this film so iconic and memorable. It’s clear that special attention was spent on costume design and making sure each clique was accurately represented and distinguishable based on their wardrobe — from the effortless cool kids to the nerdy outsiders.

11. Reality Bites — 1994

Reality Bites is a ’90s classic that is sometimes overlooked but definitely deserves some praise, especially when it comes to the fashion. Reality Bites circled a group of twenty-something friends navigating post-grad life in the most relatable way possible. Their fashion rings true to that of the mid-’90s with a variety of sophisticated yet oversized pieces with a slight grunge twist.
