Anti-fashion was the major fashion movement of the 1990s, and throughout the 2000s was still widely relevant. Examples of anti-fashion include blue jeans, flannel, T-shirts, straight hair and minimalist styles.

Anti-fashion, 1990s

Fashion in the 1990s was inclined to a new minimalist style. In 1993 recycling old clothing became a fashion statement. Anti-fashion is closely related to the grunge movement of the early 1990s, when simple items like flannel were popularized by Nirvana, Pearl Jam and similar bands.

Anti-fashion, 2000s

While the Grunge look was gone by 2001, its legacy of anti-fashion was still strong. In the first half of the 2000s, retro-1970s fashion was in, in the second half of the decade, 1980s was in. The 2000s were not as radically anti-fashion as the 1990s, but shared the "anything goes" mentality and the dislike of 1980s fashion such as mullets.
