Salt-N-Pepa: 1988

Before there was Destiny's Child, before there was TLC, before En Vogue, there was Salt-N-Pepa, arguably the sassiest of all the urban girl groups. With a toughened up fly girl mystique, the trio's personal style has also stood the test of time. As our culture of nostalgia (finally) transitions its focus from the 80s to the 90s, there's no better time to channel the dopest looks of your In Living Color-shaded youth. Salt-N-Pepa's enduring visual appeal has three specific requirements: all-denim (and oversized) everything, gold chains and asymmetrical hair cuts. Unless you're feeling particularly plucky/reckless, we aren't suggesting you attempt that last step alone; a jaunty wig will do just fine.
