Spaghetti straps adorned every cool girl's shoulders in the '90s. If you were into fashion growing up, you'll be pleased to know that they're back with a vengeance and there are plenty of spaghetti strap fashions you would have loved in 1999 available to buy right now. On the other hand, if you were too busy playing with your dinosaurs and reenacting scenes from Jurassic Park to care about spaghetti straps, you might have missed out on the trend. The same can be said for younger Millennials who were still in diapers or in the womb in the latter half of the decade.
Whether you lived for spaghetti strap fashions or you missed the trend train, you're sure to want to get in on the action the second time around. There was just something so satisfying about wearing spaghetti strap apparel in 1999: Your shoulders were able to soak up the sun, you could move freely, and you could even channel the spaghetti strap empress Rachel Green. A cool bonus is that they looked awesome without a bra.
