Grunge, hip-hop, innerwear as outerwear — American Eagle Outfitters revisits the ’90s

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Fashion is a cycle. Trends resurface once in a while, with the promise of a new and hipper take on what’s already been in vogue years back. Well-loved apparel brand American Eagle Outfitters recognizes the idea that some things are worth reliving and looking back on by putting together a collection that pays homage to the ’90s, a favorite fashion decade of many.

The ’90s was a particularly exciting era in fashion because the key looks that emerged then were downright chic despite having that perfectly imperfect, unkempt and rugged feel. That era saw trends like grunge, denim on denim, innerwear as outerwear, and hip-hop clothing taking over the scene — fashion trends we still encounter and follow to this day.

Women will be thrilled to dress up (or down) this season with key items from American Eagle Outfitters’ latest collection. To maintain that incredible sense of style despite the daily grind, make sure to sport a comfy getup you can freely move around in; choose from the brand’s staples such as denim shorts, lightweight chambray tops, and boyfriend jeans. Not to be missed in American Eagle Outfitters’ latest collection are the acid wash denims that are distinctive of the ‘90s fashion. Put a fun spin to these basics with plaid tops worn around the waist for a more laid-back vibe, or a sexy top with a bodycon silhouette which can take you from sunup till sundown. The brand’s new Aloha Tank is so effortlessly fashionable and easy breezy that it will surely be one’s travel must-bring.

The men’s collection likewise channels the ’90s season with casual cool offerings like acid wash tops, cut-off tank tops, and joggers that will have you beating the heat in style. Other racks are filled with classic, dressier beach wear rendered with iconic preppy styles; polos with swim trunks and chinos with tanks are worth a try to keep looking hot.

The Aerie collection takes its female consumers on a fashionable adventure to the calm islands of Bora Bora and the party cities of Brazil with clothing inspired by the ’60s. Swimwear and cover-ups — such as dresses, rompers, tie-side tanks, and shorts — feature prints like exploded patterns, clean stripes, diagonal stripes, sea creature and fruit graphics; and palettes ranging from tranquil colors to soft neons to brights. Also launched in the collection are the seamless bandeau with padding, push-up bralette, and cheeky panties.

Relive the great fashion hits of yesteryears at American Eagle Outfitters now and grab items that will have you looking hot and cool.

American Eagle Outfitters shops are at Bonifacio High Street, SM Aura, Greenbelt 3, Alabang Town Center, SM Lanang and soon in SM Megamall and Ayala Fairview.
