Lets face it: the back-to-school season can be a drag. For younger students, the first day of school is an ominous reminder that you’re expected to be somewhere every day for the rest of the school year, and–TWIST!–the rest of your life. For parents and older students, the bummer is the lists of school-mandated items to stock up on. That’s why you need to flip the script on this negative season and get some enjoyment by focusing on the one thing you have control over: your style. Don’t think you have any? Check out Finish Line’s retro gear to steal some style straight from the 90's, which, to my disbelief, has made the illest of comebacks. And for the budget conscious, shop their back-to-school deals for up to 50% off what you need. Keep reading for our top picks!
Be an around the way girl (or boy) with this new spin on the throwback LL Cool J fit. When our SEO guy, who’s very cool, saw these on my monitor, he gasped and excitedly declared that bucket hats were his “jam back in the day.” Go understated
These cult classic 90s’ non-purses, historically dubbed the “fanny pack,” have a completely bad wrap, tbh. A far cry from the neon nylon eye-blinders they once were, these convenient, hands free, and surprisingly stylish “waist packs”
are being redefined by the likes of Champion and other brands. Keep your small school supplies and must haves close by, even if that means around your chest like it does for the men in these photos
These have not once gone out of style. Shop now for women’s and men’s styles for all ages and be the classic cool kid on the block.
I’m a Pacers fan myself, but here in Chicago, I hear pretty decent arguments that Michael Jordan was the best of all time. Celebrate the 90s’ best basketball player (he has enough credit, right?) with this throwback snapback.
