Fashion Trends From The Past You Wish Would Make A Comeback

List Rules
Vote up the fashion trends you hope would make a grand return.

Fashion is always changing, but are there ever times you wish some old fashion trends would make a comeback? Maybe you think bell bottoms from the 1970s were the epitome of cool, or maybe you think top hats give off an aura of stately sophistication that we're missing today. Maybe one of the many fashion trends from the 1990s should make a return, but no matter how hard you try to convince others, it never seems to catch on.

Well, maybe there should be a place where people could democratically agree upon which outdated fashion trends should make a grand return. No one necessarily has to act on it, but wouldn't it be cool to know which fashion trends from the past could be potential fashion trends for the present?
