Sadly (perhaps), I am not all that attuned to what makes for an 80s outfit or a 90s outfit. I know that the 80s were marked by excess, whereas the 90s were marked by minimalism (oh and I think that there was a "grunge" period in the 90s too), but, beyond that, I couldn't really say if something was distinctly 80s or 90s. When I bought the booties that I wore today, the shop clerk who was helping me said that they were very 90s. Are they? I just liked them.
