Dress up as Lenni

Lenni was my favorite character back then. I thought her fashion sense was super cool! Looking at her outfits now, I wouldn’t particularly wear some of them on a normal day, but it doesn’t take away her cool factor in any bit. Oh, and I secretly wanted her to end up with Calvin (their arch nemesis who always had his pet parrot with him – Attila)

Plaid Knit Front Button Shirt
Lenni has a wide fashion sense, but it’s obvious that she loves colors and mixing patterns! In one of the episodes, she wears a knot tie shirt vest on top of a long sleeve top. This plaid button shirt is a good interpretation of that top

Floral Vest
A vest like this one would also be something she’d wear

Topper / Mad Hatter Hat
One of the things I remember most about Lenni was her hat, which was somehow a cross between a top hat and a mad hatter hat. It reminded me of the 4 Non Blondes singer, which was also such a distinctly 90s thing. Don’t know the band? Then these lyrics will jog your memory: “And so I wake in the morning and I step outside and I take a deep breath!”

Dress up as Rob

Rob! I had a crush on him way back then! He has a 90s hip-hop / skater boy fashion sense.

Cotton Do Rag
Rob is the cool skater dude and he sports a do rag in the opening credits. You can also bring a skateboard as a prop!

Brawny Flannel Shirt
The dude wears plaid shirts at times. Sometimes he just ties it around the waist (a quintessential 90s fashion tip – tie a jacket around your waist!)

Dress up as Tina

Tina is the girly girl of the group and is usually seen wearing dresses and skirts.

Red Checkered Skater Skirt
Tina’s outfits are probably the ones I’d most likely wear in this day and age. Especially her top and skater skirt combination.
