As the name implies, The Underground Music Showcase brought a range of alternative styles to the streets of Denver this weekend. From the rock glam of the performers to the heavy infusion of the ’90s in show-goer fashion, there was plenty of unique attitudes on display.

 ’90s Revival/Club Kids

The style of the ’90s was a major trend among UMS’ers. Head-to-toe denim, crop tops and muted floral patterns all made a comeback. But what stuck out most was the eccentric fashion of the Club Kid with brightly colored hair and loud makeup.
