Fashion throughout history sports in the 90 s


Evan Battle & Francis Apacible

Influence of sports in the 1990 s

Influence of Sports in the 1990’s

The emergence of professional sports over the last century have brought about many changes to society

The way we dress has been greatly influenced by sports, from jerseys, gear, and apparel. And, of course, the athletes that wear these clothes set the ultimate example for us

There is no other decade in sports that has influenced fashion more than the 90s

Events in sports such as the Stanley Cup Playoffs, USA Dream Team in Barcelona, and the Bulls Domination in the 90s have helped to make this sports movement popular

Influence of hockey

Influence of Hockey

Wayne Gretzky (The Great One) was able to popularize hockey in cities that were not usually known as hockey towns, such as Los Angeles and St. Louis

Not only did he make hockey popular in new places, he popularized wearing jerseys as part of everyday wear

Most hockey jerseys were designed to feature bright neon colours, which were very popular in the 90s

Influence of hockey1

Influence of Hockey

JaromirJagr was a fan favourite, most known for his mullet in the 90s

It became popular for hockey fans to wear mullets to pay tribute to Jagr’s style

Jagr is credited for helping to make the NHL more popular in Eastern Europe, as he is a native of the Czech Republic

Hairstyles became important in the sport of hockey, as they expressed support for a certain team or player

The “Playoff Beard” was a tradition also started in the 80s/90s. Players and fans stop shaving when their team enters the playoffs and does not shave until the team is eliminated or wins the Stanley Cup

Basketball air jordan

Basketball – Air Jordan

Air Jordan is a brand of shoes and athletic apparel produced by Nike and Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is arguably the best basketball player to ever play the game. He won 6 championships in the 90s. That fact alone made people believe that wearing Jordans gave them magical powers (seriously, they do)

Each pair of Js released during this era was a hit. They were undeniably the greatest trend of the 90s
