When fall begins, it’s always a good idea to swap out your shorts and tank tops for fall clothes like sweaters and ankle boots. This is also a good time of the year to clean out your closet in order to bring new trends in. When you’re cleaning, you might even hold up a few articles of clothing and think, “will I ever wear this again?” It’s a tiny excuse that we all use to hold onto clothing items that we haven’t determined if they’re out of style or will be making a comeback. People in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s must have thought that chokers would never come back into fashion, but here we are in a whole new decade of fashion that’s looking like decades of the past. 

1. Jeans 

Move over skinny jeans. There’s a new trend coming back into the denim world — flare jeans. These jeans add an extravagant factor to your look and make your legs look longer. Check out Free People women’s printed flare jeans. Mom jeans have also made a comeback and can be easier to find than flare jeans. Many teens and young adults have come to love the laid back feel and comfort of the mom jean trend. 

2. Chunky shoes 

Everywhere you look, you can see platform wedge sandals. Steve Madden houses the most popular platform sandals, which pair great with ankle-cut jeans for warmer fall days. Chunky sneakers, which are another part of the comeback trend, have been around for a while. Fila sneakers have been around for quite some time, but now it seems that their Disruptor II is essential to have in your closet. These shoes fit the basic trend mark, they’re stylish and they make you look taller. 

3. Accessories

Before you are attacked for having a scrunchy on your wrist due to the summer trend of being a “VSCO girl,” just remember that scrunchies have been around forever, as they were very popular in the ’80s and ’90s. Overall, they're better for your hair and can be a matching accessory to your outfit. To create a chilly, hippy look from the ’70s, wear tiny, round sunglasses. Although they’re not useful for protecting your eyes from the sun, tiny sunglasses are a fashion statement that can be used during all seasons and add fierceness to your throwback look.
