Trends are cyclical in nature: what is new is so often old. Luckily, when old trends come back into style they get a modern update from a new generation. Take a look at 3 surprising trend comebacks from the late 90’s & early 2000’s that have made their returns.
Made popular in the late 90’s & early aughts, this strapless top has been seen on just about every fashion it-girl this year. However, they’re no longer for baring midriffs with belly button rings. Instead, they’ve been updated as modern, sophisticated tops that can be made versatile with the right bottoms and layering pieces.
Another top that was synonymous with “going out”, this neckline has been seen on the runways with chic updates. The strong shoulder-baring silhouette can be bold or simple, with endless style possibilities from tops to dresses to jumpsuits for the upcoming warm weather seasons.
Low Rise Jeans
Most either love them or hate them. There are no neutral opinions on hip-hugging low rise denim, making them a surprising trend comeback. The return of low rise can simply be for the reaction, bringing back something that is arguably against the grain, or to give people new options to create the wardrobe that fits them best.
