5 Fashion Trends History Has Seen Before

Not only does fashion have a way of representing events and issues of specific eras, but fashion also repeats itself over the decades.

Over the past year or so, there have been a few major trends in fashion that directly reflect another decade. I thought it would be neat to pinpoint this reoccurring trends. So here it is, 5 fashion trends history has seen before.

Trench Coats in the 1920s vs. Now

Obviously, since it is summer, we haven't seen too many trench coats, but this past winter (and I have a feeling this upcoming winter as well) trench coats were HUGE! Back in the 1920s, trench coats were just your go-to winter layer. 

Long Spandex Shorts in the 1980s vs. Now

One of the most iconic looks from the 1980s were the neon spandex. Oddly enough, these long spandex/biker shorts have made a comeback. However, this time these shorts aren't worn in as workout attire but rather styled as "athleisure". While the Kardashians have been raving over this look, I can't say it's my favorite.

Oversized Earrings in the 1980s vs. Now

Big. Huge. Statement Earrings. What's a good 80s outfit without a pair of oversized earrings to go with it? Well these oversized accessories have become the new thing. You can make the simplest of outfits a major wow by just adding a trendy pair of dangles.

Mom Jeans in the 1990s vs. Now

A big part of the laidback, grunge style of the 1990s were the baggy mom jeans. Surprisingly enough, you can find these denim classics on almost every street corner once again. 

High-waisted Swimsuits in the 1940s

High-waisted swimmies have been all the rage this summer. This is a direct result from the retro swimsuits of the 40s and 50s. I mean look at Tezza in the bottom right photo. It's practically the same as the picture above it! I have to say, I really like this comeback. Not only has it been a breath of fresh air in terms of swimsuits, but I think this particular style is much more flattering.

Kitten Heels in the Early 2000s vs. Now

Oh the kitten heel! In the early 2000s, it seemed like every celebrity that made a red carpet appearances was wearing a one inch pair of heels. Well folks, they're back. All credit for this comeback goes to Dior. Their "J'Adior Heel" was what has brought this trend into full swing.
