Parents, did you save your bell bottom jeans and Trapper Keeper from the 90s? It's all coming back in style! But this year, kids are adding their personal touch.
From hair to clothes, anything goes -- with some 90s to the early 2000s vibes.
“A lot of it is the Y2K shapes are coming back, so the lightning bolt, the smiley faces, and really just parents see what they would shop for when they were kids now bringing it back with their kids,” says Julia D’Aguanno, manager at Little Chicken in Atlantic Highlands. “It's really fun.”
D’Aguanno says let kids add patches, they're not just used to cover up a hole on the knee.
“A girl can come in to get dinos if they wanted to on their backpack or a boy could come in and say oh I love a unicorn or a rainbow,” says D’Aguanno. “Parents accept that and their kids express themselves which is really awesome.”
Annmarie Russo at Bangz in Montclair says kids are getting a lot of influence from social media, YouTube and just other people.
“You can be inspired by others, which is a good thing,” says Johnny Petrozzino, at Bangz. “You should always be inspired. We always inspire each other, and we inspire each other here as stylists with our style, hair and clothes, and we inspire our clients, but we inspire our clients to be themselves and be who they are especially with how the world is changing.”
