3 Throwback Trends That Are Making a Comeback



We all remember the cringiest of cringe fashion trends that were during the 90s and the 2000s, and are constantly reminded by the #ThrowbackThursday posts on Instagram. But, many of our favorite style icons come from these eras with questionable fashion, so maybe the butterfly clips and the chunky square toed sandals weren’t so bad now looking back. With a few styling adjustments, some of the most popular throwback trends have made their way into 2018. Here are 3 trends that have made a recent comeback.


  1. Colorful Lensed Sunglasses


Move over Britney Spears, the sunglasses trend of the 90s has made an updated comeback with the stylish cat-eye lenses. Selena Gomez is pictured with the very small colorful ones some find quirky. She is wearing the Ray Ban Oval Flat Lenses.







2. Fanny Packs


The most frowned upon trend from the 90s and early 2000s is probably the most popular comeback trend of them all in the recent year. Ebay has sold over 57,000 fanny packs within 2017. With many designer labels such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci making the Fanny Pack now “cool”, people are wearing it over the shoulder as well.



3. Dad Sneakers


Who would ever think that big, bulky shoes worn by our middle aged dads’ would be a fashion trend in 2018? The dad shoes of the 80s and 90s have been made popular, especially with designer brand Balenciaga. They are being worn with sundresses, skirts, and shorts in the summer, and long dresses and trenches in the winter.
