The mini skirt beat out the “little black dress” and hot pants for the crown as fashion’s greatest garment.

1. Overalls

If you were a child in the 1970s, at some point you probably wore a colorful pair of corduroy overalls. But in the 90s, overalls got a trendy denim overhaul. From celebrities to musicians, baggy overalls became a must-have wardrobe item. glam suggests, “no denim look is more ’90s than baggy overalls. Overalls are an almost complete outfit in one piece.
