Throughout our history, fashion has been growing and evolving. Certain clothes are pulled into pop culture, and then trends shift, pulling new styles into the spotlight. Although it may seem unimportant, fashion statements have been incredibly important in shaping our culture in the United States, and they continue to do so. Although the 2000s have brought it’s own trends, older fashion statements are making their way back into current styles.

One of the main time periods sneaking back into today’s fashion is the 90s. Classic 90s TV shows and movies like Clueless, Friends, and Seinfeld showcase main aspects of this time period’s fashion, as well as fashion icons like Kate Moss and rock stars like Kurt Cobain. There were a lot of statement trends during this time, from ripped jeans to Doc Martens, and although not all of these trends are big now, many are being reincorporated into current styles. Some main 90s clothing articles returning to current fashion are choker necklaces and scrunchies, as well as mom jeans and denim jackets. The 80s are making a slight comeback in fashion as well. Although the neon, flashy parts of this time aren’t quite making their way into current fashion, one important trend is resurfacing, which is leggings. They were big in the 80s, especially colorful and patterned leggings, and are now making a huge comeback. Today’s leggings aren’t as intense as the super bright 80s leggings, but the patterns have made a return, as well as more colors.

The 70s have also made a return in fashion, with flare jeans and band t-shirts. Popular 70s bands like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Pink Floyd are coming back into clothing stores. 60s fashion has also returned into today’s fashion, with floral patterns and bell sleeves, as well as embroidered denim and bellbottoms. 60s fashion made big statements, like the upbringing of mini skirts, which made a big mark on skirt lengths in today’s fashion. They also brought in women’s pants, which made a giant impact on fashion throughout the years and today. Sandals have also made a big surge in fashion, and are a big part of today’s styles.

One of the coolest aspects of older fashion trends making a comeback in today’s fashion is the cross over of all the time periods styles. 90s fashion trends are merging with 70s styles, 80s styles are crossing over with current styles, and the combinations continue. Current fashion is also making these older styles newer by adding current aspects to vintage outfits. No matter if you like combining sneakers with your prom dress or bellbottoms with couture,  fashion is not so much a definition of the time but the definition of self-expression.
