There’s no denying the 90s were an iconic turning point in fashion.
Gone were the outrageous shoulder pads, the bright and bold pant suits and the flare leg bell bottoms synonymous with the 80s.
With a new decade came a new wave in fashion – the 90s can safely claim responsibility for smokey eyes, the humble spaghetti strap top and a classic pair of straight leg Levi’s.
And no one embodied fashion’s 90s moment in time more so than the comedic cast of Friends.
Indeed, the lives of Rachel, Monica and Phoebe, aligned with best guy pals Ross, Chandler and Joey were the narrative of the decade (perhaps closely followed by Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and The City).
Yep, still to this day, episodes of Friends continues to air on prime time television – seriously, what is life without a daily dose of Central Perk’s most loyal customers?
And aside from the fact that it’s plain and simple an extremely watchable show, there is another theory as to why Friends has stayed hot on the minds of many despite its final episode airing 15 years ago.
You guessed it – the wardrobes of Rachel, Monica and Phoebe were undeniably fab, and what’s more, they’re still totally on trend today as the 90s revival thrives in 2019.
And that’s why we decided to collate the very best fashion moments from the show itself – because who hasn’t been inspired by Rachel’s crop tops and Monica’s iconic Levi’s?
Keep scrolling for a trip down memory lane – Central Perk is officially the ultimate mood board.
