I just got this windbreaker-esque jacket on the clearance rack at H&M for $10. Did I need it? No. But did it give me a flashback to 4th grade when I sported a black and white Reebok windbreaker suit? Yes. Don’t act like you didn’t have one too. They were so cool in the mid-90s. I really wanted to wear this with a smiley face t-shirt and some peace sign earrings, but alas those things left my closet a long time ago. The best I could do was a side ponytail.
For the full effect, may I recommend rereading this post while listening to one or more of the following songs:
- Gangsta’s Paradise, Coolio
- Waterfalls, TLC
- All I Wanna Do, Sheryl Crow
- The Sign, Ace of Base
- Always Be My Baby, Mariah Carey
- Kiss From a Rose, Seal
What’s your favorite mid-90s song/band? Let me know in the comments (and you can say something about my outfit if the mood strikes you).
