Fashion Trends That Should Never Make A Comeback
We’re sure you’ll be glad that you can no longer find these trends in the stores!
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see which trends should never ever make a comeback.
Retro Workout Fashion: The 80s Phenomenon
Remember the 80s? A time of big hair, giant afros, and nylon tracksuits. But there was something else that made the decade so memorable - the popular aerobics-themed workout fashion trend.
Tight leotards, neon leg warmers, stirrup leggings, and sweatbands - it was a must-have for fashion-conscious women. And of course, who can forget the iconic Jane Fonda and her bestselling workout video? It may not have made much sense, but it was the height of the 80s style.

A Short-Lived Fad: The Uncomfortable Reality of the Hobble Skirt
The fashion of the 1910s, though iconic, was not always comfortable. This was especially true of the hobble skirt, a style that limited the women’s movement. As Jessica Brown Findlay so aptly put it, “there’s a reason hobble skirts are called hobble. You literally can't move very far in them.” Taking tiny steps was the name of the game, and the tight fit of the skirt made it seem like it could tear at any moment.

Psychedelic Fashion: A Trip Through Time
Psychedelic Fashion hit the streets in the late '60s and stayed with us until the '70s. With its groovy, dizzying patterns, it became a symbol of the hippie movement in San Francisco. But it wasn't just about looking good - it was about reordering the political, social, and artistic structures of the time.
The trend moved from the street to the red carpet, with Raquel Welch famously donning a psychedelic dress. But not everyone could pull it off as she did! Psychedelic Fashion was about more than just fashion - it was about the participation and involvement of the people wearing it.

Can Denim-on-Denim Make a Comeback?
Denim-on-denim has a bit of a checkered history. Whenever the phrase is uttered, many of us conjure up visions of the 2000s, when even the most stylish of celebrities couldn't quite make it work. However, the trend is starting to make a comeback! Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake famously donned the look in the early 2000s and recently, many celebrity couples have followed suit.
How Petticoats Have Been Flattering Women for Centuries
Petticoats have been around since the 1300s, providing women with a flattering shape for centuries. During the 17th century, petticoats were a fashionable item before becoming underwear in the mid-eighteenth century. The 1950s saw a comeback of these garments, with women wearing them under the knee or calf-length skirts.

The Flapper Revolution: A Look Back at the Roaring '20s
The Flapper Revolution of the Roaring '20s is an iconic style that is still admired to this day. After World War I, the trend emerged as women grew in confidence and began to experiment with modern haircuts and loose-fitting dresses, a stark contrast to the previous Victorian era. With feathered accessories, beaded designs, and fringed-out flapper dresses, this brave new style was considered bold and daring.
While the trend had appeal, it has since gone out of style and is unlikely to make a comeback. However, the Flapper Revolution still remains a symbol of female empowerment and liberation.
Track Jackets: An '80s Trend That Should Stay (Only) on the Track
The 1980s saw the rise of the brightly coloured travesty that is the track jacket. But let's face it, we've been through enough and this is the last thing we want to revive. Understandably, the '80s was a time of incredible innovation, but the track jacket trend should probably stay in the past.

Leather Fashion: The Faux Revival
In the 1960s, leather jackets were in vogue for men, while women sported leather dresses. PETA wasn't around yet, but shortly thereafter, manufacturers had already started producing faux leather clothing. Now, while pure leather is still a luxury item, public sentiment toward it has resulted in its decline, and we can only hope that this trend continues.
Stop the High Platform Shoes: An Urgent Petition to Prevent Ankle-Breaking Fashions
It's time to take a stand against those high-platform shoes that are a recipe for disaster. Not only do they look bad, but they can easily lead to broken ankles and limbs. In the 1990s, unfortunately, many women opted for such risky fashion choices, wearing them with mini dresses, sporty pants, and crop tops.
We must not let this trend take off again – it's time to put a stop to it before we see an epidemic of broken bones! Let's put an end to this disaster in the making by signing a petition to ensure that high-platform shoes are gone for good.

'90s-style bandannas are making a huge comeback! What was once a signature accessory of the Hippie era, has been revitalized by teens on TikTok. But while Jennifer Lopez's iconic low-rise jeans, bedazzled belt, and bandanna were a hit, not everyone can pull them off.
The Comeback of High Waisted Jeans: A Thousand Times Better than Low-Rise!
We all know the feeling of being presented with a choice between high-waisted jeans and low-rise jeans – the decision is made in the blink of an eye! After taking a look at the Pepsi ad, which looks more like an ad for high-waisted denim, it's clear to see why this trend has made a major comeback since its inception in the late '80s.
Sure, it's not always the most flattering look, but when it comes to denim, high-waisted jeans are a thousand times better than their low-rise counterparts. So, if you're ready to make a statement, why not join the high-waisted revolution?
Can Cargo Pants Make A Comeback?
We’ve seen low-rise jeans and slouchy denim make a return to the fashion world, and now cargo pants are trying to do the same.

The Return of the Waist: Bias-Cut Dresses of the 1930s
The 1930s brought with it a wave of change in the fashion world.

Modest yet stylish, these dresses brought back the element of waist into the fashion landscape, much to the delight of women everywhere. This fashion revolution allowed women to express themselves through their wardrobes in a whole new way.
