15 Outfits That Prove 2016 Is Basically 1996

There were inklings of the ‘90s coming back in style with a denim on denim look and slip dresses gaining in popularity, but now, there’s pretty much no denying that 2016 is just a repeat of everyone’s favorite decade. These 15 celebrity outfits prove that 2016 is basically 1996 all over again. Everyone from Kendall Jenner to Rihanna totally hearts the 1990s right now, and their ensembles will get you in the mood to dig these types of pieces out of your closet, too. Because you know you held on to them!

Choker necklaces, brown lips and tracksuits have made a huge comeback in the past year. Bella Hadid recently rocked an Adidas matching set with a crop top and choker that is the epitome of modern and cool athleisure meets throwback chic.

We’re living the '90s all over again. And hey, you know what I say? If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Because I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t loving each and every one of these outfits, and I think you’ll see that you absolutely agree! What's old is definitely new again. Let's see how celebs are repurposing trends of yesterday for the modern era.
