I love the ‘90s. You love the ‘90s. VH1 definitely loves the ‘90s. How could you hold anything but fond memories of the decade that brought us Crystal Pepsi, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Lorena Bobbitt? Yup, those were the good old days.

Thanks to the friendly folks at Light Group, tonight you can relive those magic years with fellow ‘90s fans at Jet Nightclub at the Mirage. Step Into the ‘90s Vol. 1 is a celebration of all the cringe-worthy things we thought were cool back before we knew better. Hosting the party is none other than ‘90s slacker jerk icon David “Puck” Rainey from The Real World: San Francisco. (Good thing he got cast before MTV took a liking to Abercrombie-clad alcoholics.)
In honor of the decade and tonight’s bash, I asked some friends to share their very best/worst fashion decisions of the ‘90s…
“Leggings - bright pink, awful. Oh, and belly shirt outfits my mom put me in that made me look like a trashy 5-year-old.” – Cydney Cappello
“…Super long cutoff shorts, like turning dress pants into shorts with frayed edges, but that was cool!” – Ira Spitzer
"I'm going to have to go with the stirrup pants. Don't forget about shorts with overalls and denim vests ... and super tapered jeans ... and jelly sandals ... Damn, i miss the '90s." - Cara McCoy
“Little pointy black dress shoes that I thought were cool as little hipster shoes. Turns out, they were never cool. Not in 1992. Not in 1998, and certainly not when the black suede turned green.” – Josh Williams
“Probably like bike shorts with an oversized T-shirt tied in a knot on top.” – Heather Harkins
“Neon layered scrunchy socks over stonewashed jeans with Keds.” – Denise Spidle.
My personal favorite: the crotch-snap body suits from The Limited Too I thought were so cool that I actually borrowed them from my friends since I didn’t own any of my own. I wore them as shirts under jeans. I might as well have been wearing a bathing suit with my pants. But hey, that’s why I love the ‘90s
