Ah, the 90s. The decade that brought us the internet, Furbies, Bridget Jones and Titanic (the movie). The 1990s continues to be a decade that brings a certain nostalgia, even for those who didn’t live through it – Gen Z, we’re looking at you! Unlike the inflatable furniture, we were all obsessed with, the 90s were a solid decade for pop culture.
With a throwback gold mine like the 90s, comes ample options for fancy dress references… Welcome to our 90s fancy dress guide. We’re bringing you all the 90s fancy dress ideas you need for costume parties, Halloween outfit ideas and everything in between.
Ready? Let’s go…
Are you going to be rollin’ with the homies to a fancy dress party? Then you need an outfit that won’t get you labelled as a fashion victim or ensemble-y challenged. Lucky for you, we stock Clueless fancy dress outfits. Both our Cher Clueless costume and Dionne Clueless costume will have you looking like a total Betty.
Our Cher Horowitz outfit is a four-piece that includes a top with an attached waistcoat, the iconic yellow plaid blazer, a matching plaid skirt and a pair of white knee-high socks, naturally.
The Dionne Davenport costume is a five-piece that consists of a black and white checked blazer with a PVC collar, faux pockets and cuffs, a matching skirt, a top, a pair of black over-knee socks and… THE hat.
The plaid look may not be an Alaïa, but it will have other party guests totally buggin’!
If you’re looking for 90s fancy dress ideas, why not take inspiration from one of the most popular TV shows of the 90s? Yep, we’re talking Baywatch fancy dress! Practise your slow-motion running, don your red swimwear and transport yourself to a LA beach.
Our licensed Baywatch fancy dress comes in both men’s and women’s styles. Whether you liken yourself to Pamela Anderson or David Hasselhoff, we have a few options for you. Become the hero of the beach that we all deserve.
Spice Girls Costumes
The Spice Girls. Name something more synonymous with the 90s… We’ll wait. Spice Girls fancy dress is a classic, whether it’s for a group fancy dress costume or a case of choosing your favourite ‘spice’ and going it alone.
The Spice Girls are so iconic that we know you know who we mean by just the mention of an item… A little black dress, the union jack, leopard print, white platform trainers, flared tack pants. Whether you choose Ginger Spice, Scary Spice, Baby, Posh or Sporty, you’ll never give up on the good times.
Our Spice Girls range of costumes, accessories and wigs make 90s theme fancy dress easy. We’ve got the costumes, you just need to bring the girl power!
Buzz Lightyear Costumes
Come in Star Command, do you copy? With two films released in the 90s, it’s safe to say that Toy Story took the latter half of the decade by storm. This is why Toy Story fancy dress is a great option for a 90s film fancy dress party!
Need a 90s fancy dress couples costume idea? We have a men’s Buzz costume and a Buzz Lightyear costume for women. You could also widen the net and make it a group costume by incorporating Woody, Jessie, Bo Peep and even Rex into the mix.
We realise that there are more choices in Andy’s toy box than just Buzz, so I guess we are guilty of playing favourites. We just think that our Buzz Lightyear costumes are… To infinity and beyond!
The Addams Family Costumes
Addams Family fancy dress is instantly recognisable, thanks to the family’s statement gothic looks, from Morticia’s spidery black silk gown to Wednesday’s long black plaits.
The Addams Family also makes for a great group Halloween costume, especially if you make it a family affair!
Mario & Luigi Costumes
It’s a-me, Mario and I’m-a Luigi, number one! In other words, next on our list for 90s fancy dress ideas comes two infamous brothers, who both happen to be plumbers. It’s Mario and Luigi fancy dress costumes!
These playful fancy dress looks have long been popular at costume parties or as 90s-themed Halloween costumes. Their overalled look has remained the same for decades, which makes channelling the Super Mario bros super easy.
Our range of Mario and Luigi costumes and accessories is perfect for everyone. Ladies, or gents, take a twist on a classic and opt for the Mario and Luigi (red and green) sexy plumber look with our playsuit-style dungarees that come with striped knee socks.
That’s all folks! We hope we’ve managed to inspire you, however, if you need a few more 90s-themed fancy dress ideas, then visit our 90s fancy dress page on our website, here. For more fancy dress inspiration, browse some of our other blog posts:
