Returning Trends You Didn't Know About

August 18th, 2017 at 2:00am

Clothing trends tend to make reappearances every few decades or so and with every reappearance comes a feeling of something fresh. However, recent returning trends have already lost their appeal—sorry chokers and overalls, you just aren’t cutting it anymore. These three returning trends that aren’t talked about will re-inspire you just in time for fall.


We all rocked them at some point during middle school with that signature Limited Too sequin top (don’t worry, nothing to be too embarrassed about.) However, culottes are making a major come back and it’s time to take a second look on this once glanced over piece. Culottes may seem intimidating to a generation that grew up wearing the tightest of skinny jeans, but these flared pants will freshen up any wardrobe. A great tip for styling these wide legged pants is to pair it with a tighter top. The tight top balances out the flared bottoms and saves you from being swallowed up.

Pleated Skirts

Pleated skirts tend to make reappearances every few decades or so. My mom used to wear them in the ’80s and they were one of the ultimate style symbols of femininity. While there is nothing wrong with traditionally feminine clothing, my style tip for this particular trend is to toughen it up a bit. Pairing a pleated skirt with a cropped leather jacket sharpens up the outfit and brings a whole new meaning to the more traditionally viewed skirt.

Jean Skirts

Jean skirts first made an appearance in the ’70s when denim was king. This trend has also made the rounds throughout the years and popped up once again in the ’90s. This classic bottom has resurfaced once more and my style tip for this trend is to keep it just that, classic. It’s fun to play around with past styles and the jean skirt is the perfect base to recreate these iconic styles. Accessorize with time period specific pieces and you’ll have a look that will surely be worthy of a throwback picture on Instagram.
