90s Men Fashion: 5 Looks Everyone Is Crazy About In 2018!

From oversized jackets to ripped jeans and neon colours, the 90s are here! A look at 5 trendiest 90s looks in 2018



Remember everything Chester and Papa Action wore on Yizo Yizo, almost twenty years ago? It’s at the crest of the style wave in 2018; from the chunky jewellery to the oversized dark shades bedazzled with golden finishes, print shirts that remain half unbuttoned, military style leather jackets and… yes, even the blonde dyed box cut is all part of it.

AKA got that last week and he nailed his interpretation of the 90s wave with a Cornici Balletto print shirt, fly black shades with blue and funky frames, and of course, the black and white side stripes to finish it all with a modern day twist.

If you are into fashion, your Explore page on Instagram is probably full of that throwback monochromatic visual aesthetic that usually comes with a matching background. From high fashion to the cool kid ecosystem, there’s definitely no lack of evidence that the 90s are here.


It’s not just the garments though,is it?  It’s the whole vibe that has swept both runways and the streets. The razor-thin eyebrows fad that peaked in mid-early 2000s is threatening to come back, and it’s all thanks to Rihanna who is sporting them on the Vogue UK cover for their September issue. If the guys aren’t spotting the nose piercing, they have hopped back on the one earring trend.


Everyone has at least one pair of these, or a few, in different colours. The trend emerged summer 2017 and has evolved to include more fabrics and cuts, with denim being the latest edition to spot the famous side detail. The return of brands such as Ellesse, who have the side stripe being their trademark, has been central in driving this look back to the forefront.

Hip Hop in the 90s was all about oversized T-Shirts that were typically clad with dramatically oversized denim jeans and retro Jordans. The look is back, but with endless possibilities of interpretation. You just can’t wear oversized on baggy, please.

There was enough oversized jacketing for everyone in the 90s. From the oversized cult 90s oversized leather jackets loved by punk fans as part of the grunge look to the massive, boldly coloured and androgynous ones that came to define the urban aesthetic, everyone who wore them was in. In 2018, you are in again.



If you don’t mind looking like you’ve been working out, this trend is here to showcase how laid back and chill you are.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.
