This year we’ve seen some major comebacks from Carly Rae Jepsen to Tiger Woods but I don’t think anything could’ve prepared us for mules and bell bottoms to hit the streets again after 1999.

Take a look at all the fashion comebacks for the year with our look book of outfit trends from way back that are making their way back into festivals and nightclubs nation wide and we’ll be shocked if you haven’t worn at least one in the past 6 months.

1. Cowboy hats

The universal ‘girls’ night out’ staple piece of 2019.

4. Flare jeans

If you told us in 2018 that flare jeans would make a comeback we would’ve questioned your sanity. But 2019 … you’d be lying if you haven’t worn or thought about wearing them.

5. Turtle necks

The classic turtle neck also known as a skivvy has made its way back into our wardrobes this winter and we’re not mad.

11. Tiny handbags

The classic look of the early ’00s. Most commonly paired with a flip phone and some loud ass clunky mules. If you didn’t have one of these baby bags were you even a style icon?

Now all we’re waiting for is velour Juicy tracksuits and acid wash, low rise jeans to start making their way into 2019 … Please no.
