It turns out Justin Timberlake’s hit song is just as applicable to fashion as it is to karma! This year we have seen the re-emergence of trends from the past that we thought we would never see again. Designers have been heavily influenced by the laid back shapes of the nineties and the unpredictable fabric of the eighties and we cannot get enough.
Check out our run down of the best 7 trends from the past making an encore appearance and shop our top picks.

This was one trend we were sure would be left to gather dust in our childhood, but has been strongly represented in both ready to wear collections and high street stores. They are definitely not for everyone, but if your style twins are Cara Delevigne and Alexa Cheung, overalls might just be your perfect staple wardrobe piece.

2. Logo sweatshirt
They were made huge in the nineties by the likes of Sporty Spice and were signature pieces for every street wear label worth their salt. They have had a modern update and are now seen in slimmer cuts with cropped lengths or raw hemlines. Designers like Kenzo and Alexander Wang now count their logo sweats as amongst their most easily recognisable pieces.

The choker necklace has come and gone many times over the course of fashion history but its latest resurgence is minimalist in nature and without the bells and whistles. The late nineties saw chokers emerge with punk inspired embellishments and in the early 2000’s a rough shell choker was the must have accessory for any California girl. Today, wear them plain and in metal to add a dramatic element to any look.

4. Trucker hats
The last time this many trucker hats were in the same place it was in an episode of Laguna Beach. Fortunately for us, trucker hats have re-emerged without the Ed Hardy-esque bedazzlement and actually look super cool with plain tees and sneakers. Opt for trucker hats in retro fabrics and vintage color palettes.

5. Peasant tops
This has to be our favorite trend to make a fresh appearance this year. Peasant sleeve tops featuring tassels and embroidery have changed very little since they first burst onto the market in the Woodstock, boho era that was the late sixties and seventies. Keep your look fresh by pairing with tailored bottoms and minimalist jewelry.

6. Reflective shades
There is no bigger trend in eyewear right now than reflective lenses in bright, eighties inspired shades. We love them now because they add an unexpected pop of color to your outfit without overwhelming the look. We also love them because you can check out the hot guy on the train next to you without anyone judging. Win, win.

Why have we been wearing skinny jeans for so long when these babies were an option?! Bell bottom or ‘flare’ jeans are one of the most flattering cuts you could put on your body and hide a multitude of sins, unlike their super skinny cousins. Keep your outfit looking modern but pairing these with basic pieces in neutral shades, staying away from fringing at all costs.
