Style Rewind: The Fashion Evolution of Kid 'n Play
From vibrant prints and stylish shades to that classic hi-top fade, the fashion-forward hip hop duo rocked some truly memorable looks. Don't miss Kid 'n Play's return in 'House Party: Tonight's the Night' premiering Friday, Nov. 29 at 8/7c on Fuse!
Christopher "Kid" Reid and Christopher "Play" Martin were a pair to be reckoned with as rappers, as actors, and let's not forget—as trendsetters.

Bigger is Better
If there's one thing to be taken away from '90s fashion, it's that baggy = beautiful.
Loud and Proud
Just look at those prints. We respect that these guys weren't afraid to be bold.
It takes a sophisticated kind of dude to pull off such a distinct shape of sunglasses. But Play did it in the '90s just as A$AP Rocky and Ferg are doing it today (while looking damn good!)

Bold and Buttoned
Is it just us, or does Play's flashy button-up look totally resemble something that Tyler, the Creator would rock today?
Don't act like you didn't know nerd-chic was back in style. Even Drizzy Drake would set you straight on that one.

In the 20 years since Kid 'n Play's day, The ESPY Awards hasn't been the only non-ice-rink place where stars would rock hockey jerseys. Peep A$AP Rocky and Iggy Azalea sporting jerseys (both for the Redhawks, coincidentally) earlier this year.

The 'House Party' franchise rolled onward, birthing four sequels worth of swag, including this year's 'House Party: Tonight's The Night.'
Kid 'n Play, Here to Stay
Flat tops, windbreakers, pinky rings—this duo's duds would turn just as many heads today as they did over a decade ago.
