It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim (JASON BIGGS) and Michelle (ALYSON HANNIGAN) married while Kevin (THOMAS IAN NICHOLAS) and Vicky (TARA REID) said goodbye. Oz (CHRIS KLEIN) and Heather (MENA SUVARI) grew apart, but Finch (EDDIE KAY THOMAS) still longs for Stifler’s Mom (JENNIFER COOLIDGE). And Stifler (SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT) remains the same as he ever was. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens they were.
In this latest installment of the American Pie franchise, the gang was invited back to their ‘90s-inspired high school reunion, and here, we too will pay homage to one of our favorite decades! We’ll offer tips and hints on how to rock all of the best and most classic 90’s fashion, as well as share some of our favorite jams from the decade.
The 90’s were responsible for bringing us two very important, yet very different, key styles: The first look is the Seattle influenced “grunge” look. In order to achieve the perfect Kurt Cobain approved grunge appearance, slackers of the 90’s donned an array of garments: flannel shirts, greasy hair, and baggy, ripped jeans for men, and jean shorts over tights with heavy work boots for the women of the grunge era.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the preppy, school-girly look embraced by all of those who wanted to be just like Cher Horowitz from Clueless. This look was sported exclusively by women, and consisted of things such as knee high socks, baby-doll dresses, and an abundance of plaid. Shoes were mostly Mary-Jane styled, with the older fans of this style making their look a bit more sophisticated with shoes with higher heels.
If there is one haircut in particular that SCREAMS “90’s”, it’s what’s commonly referred to as “The Rachel”. This bouncy, layered ‘do made infamous by Friends star Jennifer Aniston’s was the most coveted look by women young and old, and is actually still imitated today – nearly 15 years after its creation.
Though the 1990’s were only a sole 10 years just as any other decade is, it most definitely was all encompassing as far as music was concerned. Not only did we have the grunge artists such as Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins, but also the emergence of the “Alternative” genre, which remained very ambiguous prior to the 90’s, but grew to include artists such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Foo Fighters, and Bush. The 90’s also saw a surge in sugary pop music that included “Boy Bands” such as The Backstreet Boys, N’Sync and 98 Degrees, as well as the pop princesses – i.e., Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Jessica Simpson.
Being in my twenties during the 90’s was an amazing time. I love watching movies that reflect and bring back those memories. It’s just so much fun!
