The ’90s are back! We’ve spotted celeb after celeb rocking the TLC style — high ponies, crazy colors, and crop tops. We’re seeing the “CrazySexyCool” signature style everywhere.

Just call it the “CrazySexyCool” look. One of the best-selling albums of all time and a classic in the R&B and hip-hop genre, TLC’s second studio album, CrazySexyCool, was released in 1994.

We’re assuming that both model Karrueche Tran and singer Rita Ora are fans of the R&B and hip-hop girl group because both were spotted rocking TLC-inspired ensembles recently.

Who wore it best?

Karrueche wore her TLC-inspired outfit to the meet-and-greet launch of her limited-edition V/Sual tees held yesterday at the PacSun Glendale Galleria store.

The model flashed her rock-hard abs in a cropped sweater that didn’t cover the mesh bra top she was wearing underneath, creating a look that reminded us of TLC’s Chilli.

Karrueche added a contemporary touch to her look with ripped-knee skinny jeans. She added a pop of color to her look with bright red nails and yellow patent pumps.

Meanwhile, across the globe in Madrid, Rita Ora was also doing her best TLC impersonation at her gig at the Joy Eslava Club.

Rita also channeled major TLC energy with a high ponytail, mesh sports bra, and ripped ruffle-front Ashish jeans.

She also added color through her fuchsia lipstick, dark pink nails, and pink suede booties.

In her performance on stage later that evening, Rita wore a matching ruffled denim jacket.

The getup looks strange in pictures, but we bet it moved really well when Rita did her high-energy dance steps.
