Tonight is the FashionIndie 90’s Party, and we’re chomping at the bit to loosen our shoelaces and cut off our sleeves. It was a time when side parts were out of place, and cartoons were at an all-time high. Today, we’re taking you on a stroll through memory lane to outfit you in some Saturday-morning nostalgia.
Remember when kid’s shows could also be enjoyed by parents? We don’t know about you guys, but we learned some of our most important life lessons from the wise words of Doug Funnie and Arnold… what’s his last name?
Nowadays, most kid’s shows are one of two things:
1. Half-assed, formulaic cartoons (except you, Spongebob… stoners the world over adore you);
2. Obnoxious, screechy live-action shows featuring kids whose hair is too perfect to be true. Don’t believe us? Turn on Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel. They all have that immaculate, moussed-up, wavy side-sweep. Style your stars with some variety, for Pete’s sake!
To sum it up, there’s a timeless quality about 90’s cartoons that we remember fondly into our adult years. And since fashion is cyclical, those elements come back in fresh ways. We scoured the retroverse to find some of the best examples of old-skool cartoon styles that you can rock with some ironic flair as an adult.
These Pikachu ballet flats are individually hand-made in the USA by Catherine Gretschel, a small-time crafter, which makes them all the more appealing. There is no party you could stumble into where someone else is wearing the same thing. $70 aishavoya
