What: Yin Yangs

When we wore it: mid to late ’90s

Why we hate them: We feel like it’s a little backwards to use the word “hate” for these stylish messengers of peace. But we will bring up some troubling questions like, why were the literally everywhere? And where did they go?

Why we love them: They were great doodling inspiration– as long as you got the proportions of the middle squiggle right. And aside from showing off your rad artistic skills, you could buy the necklaces that split the yin and the yang and give half to your gym partner as a sign of everlasting friendship.

Would we wear them now: Negative. But not because we wouldn’t want to, because they literally ceased to exist. And maybe we wouldn’t want to.

What it is: The almighty bandanna.

When we wore it: Strong throughout the ’90s.

Why we hate it: The bandana made us all go through somewhat of an identity crisis. I mean, were we badass rappers like Tupac, or dirty rock stars like Axl Rose? And what were we to think when peppy pop stars like Christina started sporting them? Reveal your true identity, bandanna.

Why we love it: Because we COULD be Tupac or Axl Rose or Christina just by the fold of a square piece of fabric. And they were super cheap, and could even function as a shirt when we had no tits (thank you, youth).

Would we wear it now? Who says I’m not wearing one as I write this…

Who doesn’t love summoning up memories of those hideous, yet magnificent trends from our freckle-faced youth? Every week, we’ll muse over a fashion item that our former selves eagerly donned in order to sit with the cool kids at lunch. There’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia every now and then, right? 

What it is: Power beads. the colored bracelets that determined who you were.

The Dumbest Things We Did In The ’90s

You miss the ’90s, we miss the ’90s, everybody misses the ’90s. It was a happier time of economic prosperity, a predictable climate, peace abroad (well, aside from a couple genocides) and a watchable — nay, enjoyable – M. Night Shyamalan film.

But not everything from the ’90s is worth missing. Here are the worst excesses of our best decade, from Marty Beckerman, author of the new book ’90s IslandRead more on TruTV…

I was watching the vintage “Real World” marathon this past weekend on MTV. On the San Francisco season, you may remember that episode where Rachel goes to a coffee shop to give her number to a dude. It doesn’t end up working out, but oh man, this scene gave me a crazy bout of dating nostalgia. I started remembering all the things I used to have to do (most of them terribly embarrassing) when I liked someone. Before the days of Facebook and Google, it took some serious ingenuity just to figure out a guy’s last name. I had to stalk a guy at Little Caesar’s Pizza every day after work just to get his phone number! That’s a lot of individual pizzas to order on an allowance! You have to really like the person to put in that kind of financial commitment. And if they like you back? Whoa. Now it’s all a mouse click away. It’s just too easy. Let’s reminisce some of those extinct pre-Internet dating rituals. Keep reading »

The New Kids On The Block Are Shirtless And Rocking Porn Star ‘Staches

Speaking of ’90s musicians, Donnie Wahlberg recently tweeted this photo of the New Kids hanging out in what looks like a locker room(?!), mustached and shirtless (with the exception of Jonathan Knight, who’s sporting a modest white T and bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Adrien Brody). So, what do you think of the guys’ new facial hair? Are your loins still tingling for these aging dreamboats? [TooFab]
