Revivals aren’t always successful, but the recent reboot of Saved By the Bell has been a huge hit. With nostalgic reprisals of the old cast – we’re talking about A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessica Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) – as well as fresh, new faces and socially relevant story lines, what’s not to love? We’re still just as distracted by the outfits as we were when we watched the original TV show, because they’re really quite noteworthy.
The season starts with a class divide after the merging of kids from Douglas High and Bayside High. The series follows the ups and downs of the Douglas kids trying to fit in with new school programs as well as varying social differences. Staying true to its original ’90s roots, the colorful wardrobes fit in seamlessly with today’s current trends – all the clothes are incredibly wearable and relevant, especially when it comes to layering and print mixing throughout the season.
Outfits that could be considered over the top become the norm, blending in so well with the characters’ personalities – yes, we’re referencing Lexi’s (Jose Totah) metallic gold Homecoming dress from Mac Duggal and her several Forever 21 fuzzy knit sweater dresses, in bright pastels. Mac Morris (Mitchell Hoog) pays respect to that classic ’90s decade in his first scene when he walks in wearing a vintage oversize knit sweater. He follows that with many more bright pops of color in the form of polos from Lacoste, Fred Perry, and Rag & Bone.
Out of all the characters, Daisy Jimenez (Haskiri Velazquez) wears the most practical outfits, keeping it stylish in crop tops, high-waisted jeans, skirts, and jean jackets. Her signature pinafore dresses also make an appearance several times throughout the season.
