Fashion is a tricky area, with trends passing almost as soon as they begin trending. You can be left red-faced with outfits you can’t wear anymore because these trends are no longer cool. Thankfully, fashion trends always seem to come back at some point, with your outfits seemingly cool again. No need to throw outfits away once their season passes; you can simply wait till they’re back in season. Here are some styles from a few generations ago that have suddenly become cool again:
Velvet tracksuits were all the rage in the early 2000s, and everyone seemed to be in on it. There was hardly a music video from that period where someone wasn’t spotting a velvet tracksuit. This trend seemed to be the unofficial uniform of all rap music. Velvet tracksuits had style, comfort and finesse while still being simplistic. Since the early 2000s ended, the velvet tracksuits seemed to vanish until now. Velvet tracksuits are making a stylish comeback with a twist. The new trend is seeing people mix things up a bit, pairing velvet tracksuit tops with sweatpants or other matching outfits.
High-Waist biker shorts
High-Waist biker shorts have been a trend since the 80s, and while this period has long passed, it isn’t all bad news. After starting as a tik-tok trend, the #bikershirts trend has since become more popular, making High-Waist bike shorts cool. Biker shorts are both comfortable and versatile in different fitting scenarios. If you are a fitness enthusiast, the return of high-waist biker shorts is sure to be a welcome development. The leather version of these isn’t yet back in style, but as they were a big hit in the 80s, they may be making a return soon. Controversial, but leather high-waist biker shorts are sure to be a sight to behold.
There is hardly any TV show from the 90s that doesn’t feature a character in baggy overalls, making it an instant classic. Sadly, the coming of the new millennium saw the end of the baggy overalls as they seemingly faded into obscurity. The best thing about overalls is that they fit for casual and work situations; as the name implies, they fit over everything. Baggy overalls are making a comeback in a big way, adding variety to your choices. Where the 90s trend saw jeans as the only option, the new trend uses different materials, including cotton options. Say goodbye to skinny jeans and skin-tight pants, and embrace the overall baggy trend.
Sneakers always seem to be in and out of fashion, but you can never fully write them off. The 80s and 90s saw a lot of different sneaker trends but perhaps none quite as famous as the checkered sneakers. The white and black checkered sneakers, particularly, have made a strong comeback in recent years. Who doesn’t love the allure of having a chess board on your feet? If the chess set looks appealing, there are many other colour patterns. If you can match them perfectly with your outfit, it is a huge bonus and will give you a classy vintage look.
Cowboy boots haven’t gone out of style, especially when you’re from a ranching family. The trend merely took a long nap and is returning in a big way. Cowboy boots have been around for a long time, since the 1800s, and have endured till date because they are classy. Cowboy boots can serve as classy dress bots or work boots; whatever scenario, it does the job perfectly. Cowboy boots seem to go with just about anything and can easily fit with other vintage outfits making a comeback. With different designs, from knee-high to ankle boots, you will surely find a pair of cowboy boots to match your taste.
You can’t throw out old outfits simply because the fashion trend is over or risk missing out when it comes back. If you have vintage outfits from the 80s and 90s, they may be coming back soon, if they haven’t already. If you’ve already thrown out some old clothes, you may have a bit of regret. Be sure to check the current trends to look as cool as you would like.
