Which fashion trend do you wish would come back in style?

When I first started working for my current employer in the early 90's, suspenders were in fashion for business attire. I actually kind of liked wearing suspenders. Although, the first time I wore them, I made the big faux pas of wearing them and a belt at the same time

Then I have an excuse to wear full plate armour and a jousting pole everywhere I go.

I was in 3rd grade (1981) when parachute pants peaked in popularity - at least in West Texas. I got a pair for Christmas, black with zippers everywhere.

I wore them to school shortly thereafter and was ridiculed all day. Never wore them again. Part of me wishes they would come back in style. Now I wouldn't give a danm what people think and I would rock them in incredible style.

Those little plastic shirt clips that you'd wear when your tshirts were too big. Oh and scrunchies.

I guess the 80's cougar look would come from Donna Mills. Big hair and lots of eye makeup.

I'd love it if malls were full of kids that looked like this:



SO much more interesting than the baggy-everything hip hop look.

I dress the same way I did when I was 9 years old: walking shorts, a polo shirt and sandals.

Under roos. They were never sold in Canada when I was a kid but I really wanted a set of Wonde Woman Under Roos.
