You can always count on prom pictures to reflect the absolute worst fashion of any given era, but there’s also something that’s inherently sweet about those starry-eyed teen couples. Like, “Awww, you dressed up all ridiculous and stupid for love.”
On the sweetness front, Buzzfeed’s collection of prom pics from the early 90s does not disappoint. These vaguely gothy, tear-drop haircut wearing, scrunchy-matches-the-dress kids are adorable.
On the awkwardness front, well, this collection knocks it out of the park like Mark McGwire on steroids.
