Fashion is like history, is it doomed to repeat itself. The good thing about both is that you can alter it. When a trend comes back around, it does not always come back around the same way, it comes back more modern and fitting with the times. For example, the puka shell necklace trend recently made a comeback and while the original shells were seen, the more popular necklaces tended to be in gold. Gold layered necklaces were already trending so it reinvented the puka shell necklace.
I thought it would be interesting to look back at some trends and try to predict their comeback or how they might re-evolve.
What was one of your favorite fashion trends?
Zebra Print : 1-3 Years
Cheetah print recently made a comeback and while it was short-lived, it was fun. I am ALWAYS here for a good cow print (as long as it is not a gaudy attempt at it). But zebra print I have not seen much of in big numbers. I can definitely see it resurging because of the sleek black and white nature. As long as it’s simple and elegant in the comeback, its okay in my book.
Dresses Over Jeans : 3 Years
I’m praying this one takes longer than 3 years but who knows. I think my dislike comes from being from Texas, I cannot even think about wearing heavy denim much less under a dress. I do however have an exception, which is pictured below. I think that this is a great idea when a dress unbuttons all the way. This I could definitely see coming back, however, I am not a fan of tight, distressed denim atm.
Bedazzled Denim : 6 Years
I reallyyyyy hope that when this one comes back it makes a full turnaround because I do not think I can wear this. What I will say is I did like the pearls on denim jackets that happened for a hot second in 2017.
Low Rise Jeans : 10 Years
I’m giving these a bit more time because of quarantine. Everyone seems to be throwing out their clothes that just aren’t as comfortable, starting with tighter jeans. Now if there was a pair of low rise straight legs maybe I could see it, but it’s hard enough getting abs, no one wants to show them off (or lack thereof) right now. Also, can I just say they seem to be very unflattering when it comes to that lower pouch that women tend to have, and I cannot even think about sitting down in a clear aesthetically pleasing chair wondering if my booty is fully covered! Also, Nylon is totally against their comeback & I pretty much always side with Nylon.
