Throwback-to-school shopping

I wore a mix of offensive neon jean shorts and graphic T-shirts as a ’90s kid. Luckily, I outgrew the neon and kept the good bits: a love for denim and cheeky tees. —Alexandra Mondalek, Yahoo Style fashion features writer

Frilly socks, lunch boxes and chokers: How our editors would update their back-to-school outfits

Nostalgia has fueled sales for all things ’90s for a few years now, which inspired our Yahoo Style + Beauty editors to reflect on our own favorite back-to-school outfits (though many are pre-Kimmy Gibbler-esque, to be sure).

Some choices — no doubt the doing of an overly autonomous tyke — are relegated to the archives (see: mom’s photo album) in perpetuity. Others inspire their own modern takes, replete with a handful of retro jean jackets and a Gucci backpack or two.

Speaking of backpacks, a young Bianca Stratford, of 10 Things I Hate About You fame, may have put it best: “There’s a difference between like and love. Because I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.”

If you’re in need of your own back-to-school shopping inspiration, check out what we’d wear today if we could do it all over again.
