8 Trends from Childhood That Are Making a Comeback ...


Fashion trends are a funny thing. One minute a fashion trend is all the rage, the next you wouldn’t be caught dead in it. Have you ever looked back at your childhood photos and cringed at some of your outfit choices? I know I have. Funny thing is though, lately I’ve noticed some of these childhood fashion trends coming back into fashion. It just goes to show how cyclical fashion really is. The following are a few trends from my childhood that I’ve noticed are making a comeback.

1. Jelly Sandals

Jelly Sandals

If you grew up in the 80s or 90s then you’re probably well acquainted with the jelly sandal fashion trend.

Clear and plastic, sometimes glittery, these shoes have adorned many a young girl’s feet.

These days, stores such as Topshop are reviving the trend by introducing the jelly sandal back into it’s summer footwear range.

Brands such as Melissa have also teamed up with designers such as Vivienne Westwood to give the jelly shoe a more adult twist.

2. Overalls


I loved a good pair of overalls as a child.2

Denim ones, especially.

They were the perfect hard-working clothes for rough and tumble kids.

These days, they’re enjoying a bit of a comeback thanks to being spotted on a range of celebrities and tastemakers.

The humble overall, it seems, makes for the perfect off-duty outfit.2

3. Printed Leggings

Printed Leggings

I never thought I’d see the day where I’d consider wearing printed leggings again, but it seems that day is now.

From floral to the more contemporary tribal prints, there seems to be printed leggings to suit a range of current fashion trends.

4. Sailor Collars

Sailor Collars

Usually confined to cutesy kids costumes, sailor style tops are once again trending.

There’s been a big emphasis on collars recently – just look at the popularity of the Peter Pan collar.

It seems that the sailor collar hasn’t gotten off lightly either.2

A top with a sailor style collar is great for working a nonstalgic, school-girl inspired look.
