The 90s was just before the turn of the century and it continued the wildness of the 70s and 80s.

There were so many pop culture influences in the 90s because of the dominance of Hip-Hop and R&B with its attendant culture.

Curators of pop culture in music were Puff Daddy, 2 Pac, LL Cool J, Notorious B.I.G, Aaliyah, Janet Jackson etc.

T.V shows such as 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air', 'Beverly Hills 90210', and movies like 'Clueless' and 'Bring It On' shaped pop culture to date.

The 90s were arguably the coolest era. That period influenced the 21st century and continue to do so in movies, music, art, and even literature.

The 90s were known for; plaid Miniskirt, low waist trousers 3. Crop tops, silk scarfs, fur coats, slip dresses, dungarees, jeans jackets, berets, platform heels.
