This Year’s Biggest Trend: 90’s Activewear

Posted by Ryderwear HQ on

From the Spice Girls to Space Jam, there’s no doubting that the 90’s were the greatest decade ever. MTV were actually playing videos, Will Smith was the Fresh Prince and Ross was romancing Rachel.

It was the ultimate feel-good decade full of loud, vibrant fashion which placed comfort and function first. Sporty and leisurely looks were on-trend, taking girls from Blockbuster to the basketball court in effortless style.

Inside the gym, bodybuilders were rocking spandex, while leggings and leotards were the 90’s gym clothes for women.

But nostalgia has always been fashion’s hottest trend, and that sublime 90’s style is making a comeback this year.

Like blasting a Backstreet Boys album, wearing 90’s sportswear transports you to a simpler, more carefree time, which is why retro athleisure wear is winning two decades later.

To pay tribute to the greatest decade ever, we’ve created a fashion-forward collection of 90’s-inspired activewear with a modern spin for our Ryderwear family. More 90’s than Nintendo, the Courtside collection is bringing back those nostalgic vibes, with vibrant colour blocking, loud statement branding, and cute crop tops.

Capturing that sporty 90’s fashion style, Courtside takes you back to a time when the basketball courts became buzzing with life after school and on warm summer weekends.

Even though the Courtside range was inspired by a time of Walkmans and brick phones, this collection is perfect for the Insta generation, delivering a picture-perfect look for those post-workout selfies.

Travel back in time for an on-trend look in 2020 with pieces inspired by these 1990’s fashion trends.

Crop Top with confidence…

The 90’s were full of fearless women who weren’t afraid to flaunt it. Lightweight and breathable, the crop top helped women unleash their bold, carefree attitude while showing off their bangin’ bods. Ryderwear’s Courtside collection features a super chic Orange Red Crop Sweater to flaunt your natural curves, which you can pair with the Orange Red Scrunch Bum Leggings for peak 90’s style.

In a decade defined by sporty style, it makes sense that leggings were a girl's best friend. While the tribal patterns and neon colorways are best left in the past, we’re bringing back the best bits of the 90’s with our Courtside Leggings. Inspired by 90’s fashion and leisure trends, The Courtside Leggings feature a breathable, quick drying fabric and sporty 90’s style perfect for post-training selfies. You can pair these leggings with the Courtside Shelf Bra Tank.
