We all know that trends tend to live in a cyclical fashion, meaning that every so often they make a reappearance. Lately, 90's fashion trends have been making a comeback, and it would seem everyone—even Olivia Rodrigo—is getting in on the action.
After showing off her favorite Glossier product, the Sour singer is now giving us a peek inside her fashion range with an edgy red and black plaid dress paired with over-the-knee open-toed platform boots. The complete look makes her look almost like a real-life Bratz doll.

The outfit is a departure from the softer looks that Olivia normally puts together and channels serious Alt-Girl-attitude evoking the spirit of punk and grunge that the 90s cool-crowd—Kurt Cobain, PJ Harvey, Courtney Love—were known for.

This isn't the only 90s trend that has caught our attention though. Remember the days when we would make friendship bracelets and necklaces out of beads? Well, if you're feeling nostalgic for the past, you can finally re-live your childhood as jewelry from the 90s is making a comeback.
One TikToker pointed out the differences between Millenial and Gen Z accessory trends pointing out that Gen Z is bringing back the "chunky" statement pieces. The video gained over 41,000 views and featured photos of examples of colorful beaded necklaces and "candy-like" rings.
