19 Fashion Trends People Wish Never Disappeared

Sometimes it’s nice when a fashion trend goes away, but other times we feel nostalgic for the convenience, comfort, style, or elegance of a piece of clothing or accessory that is no longer popular. An internet user recently asked, “What is a fashion trend you wish would make a comeback?” Here are the top 19 responses.

Gloves

“I think they’re so beautiful. Imagine wearing delicate, elegant elbow-length gloves. There is technology to make gloves compatible with phone use. I am really happy that gloves have made a comeback!”

“I’m totally down for dress gloves making a comeback.”

“Gloves are back! But, yeah, they are not in the mainstream.”

Peacoat

“I’ve been searching for a classic, slightly tailored, double-breasted hip-length wool peacoat, and I am completely striking out.”

“I didn’t think they were out of style, but I swear they were everywhere when I bought my last one about ten years ago! In general, it’s been hard to find shorter-length wool coats vs. knee-length ones.”

Fluffy Scarves

“I want a well-made fluffy winter scarf, but I rarely see them in department stores.”

“Say what you will about Christian girl Autumn, but my neck was always cozy in 2017.”

“I crochet the ones I want now, and I made my aunt a super fluffy scarf the other day. I have a feeling she won’t wear it since it’s not her style. Until it’s below zero, that is!”

Hats

“They are like sculptures you can wear on your head. What’s not to like?”

“Yes! I LOVE wearing headgear! It feels like unused space, and there should be more hats available in stores. Watching Downton Abbey, I get so jealous of all their hats!”

“If it were more socially acceptable, I would wear them everywhere! I can’t help but think of all the time I’d save not having to style my hair every day!”

Long Shirts Under T-shirts

“I miss waffle-knit long-sleeve shirts under a baggy tee. Straight out of the grunge era. All the other 90s fashions are back, and I really liked this one the first time around, so maybe I’ll start doing it again.”

“I do this regularly, and that’s probably why all my coworkers think I’m 21 (I’m 28!).”

“This is currently my fall uniform, but a long sleeve burnout tee instead of waffle knit.”

Brooches

“I think there’s so much room for weird, interesting, fun, artistic options. Has anyone else seen these around? I feel like I’m missing out on this!”

“I still have some cool ones from the 90s that I’d love to wear again.”

“True! I’ve been eyeing some brooches from Fable lately. They have lots of really cute and whimsical animal designs.”

Tights Under Ripped Jeans

“If we’re all going to own ripped jeans, let’s bring back tights under ripped jeans for warmth. Or, in my peak grunge days, a pajama pant under relaxed ripped jeans.”

“I like leggings with fun patterns and colors under ripped jeans in winter. I don’t know if it’s considered fashionable or not, but it’s Western New York, and I want to be WARM!”

Skater Skirts

“I used to be able to get them everywhere when I was in high school; we all used to wear them with tights. I just really miss the whole look and vibe of it, and I feel like I never see skirts or dresses anymore with that really nice round skirt.”

“I wear pleated skater skirts all the time. I don’t care if they’re in fashion or not because they look amazing on my hourglass figure.”

Parasols

“Fancy sun umbrellas are so convenient when you have to walk somewhere in the middle of the day. They make the sun bearable.”

“I own four. I don’t care if people look at me funny. I can’t stand being in direct sunlight, and I take my parasols everywhere.”

“My MS means I can’t tolerate heat or really bright sun. Parasols are my staple.”

Renaissance Gowns

“I wish it was acceptable to wear renaissance-style gowns or fancy gowns of any kind.”

“Seconded! Go get the Renaissance-style gown of your dreams and start hosting some fancy dress-up tea/brunch for your friends. Go to a Renaissance Fair, dress up for Halloween, etc. You will probably wear it more than you think.”

Retro Dressing Gowns

“Those fitted 1950s dressing gowns with waists and long full skirts and shawl collars and a big sash. They are wonderfully glamorous!”

“Check out the designer Kay Chula because she specializes in those robes!”

“Wow. Thank you for the recommendation. I love these style gowns, and the ivory silk one on her site is out of this world.”

Sarees

“I’m a Bengali, and I’d go for sarees…they are really classy and pretty.”

“They’re so beautiful and elegant; I wish it was something more universal.”

“I have so many (lots were gifts or inherited) and so few opportunities to wear them.”

The ‘Luxe’ Trend

“I’m talking 2004-2008 stuff like velvet blazers, satin camisoles, and trouser-jeans.”

“I love velvet and satin. They are my all-time faves.”

“True, but I think it’s back already. I’ve seen a ton of velvet blazers and satin camisoles at Express, Asos, and Banana Republic Factory.”

“Good news! These are literally everywhere now! I wore trouser-jeans yesterday.”

Swing dresses

“50s-style swing dresses are so much fun, and I love the necklines. I feel like they’re flattering to a variety of bodies, and they make twirling extra fun!”

“Honestly, I wear these most days. They aren’t in, but there are a bunch of niche reproduction brands making cool stuff.”

Full-skirted Coats

“If you mean the long ones, there’s an Etsy seller that specializes in these called Xiaolizi. I’ve heard good reviews, and I will get one when I need a new coat.”

“Collectif’s Pearl coats totally fulfill this need for me. Super warm and extra twirly!”

“I inherited a coat like this, and I wear it all winter!! I get so many compliments on it.”

Fans

“So one can coquettishly fan oneself with a beautifully decorated fan. I read a book once where fan tips were knives, and now I have a constant desire for a murder fan.”

“I have two fans, one from Puerto Rico and one from Japan. I live in a super hot apartment and use them every single day.”

“I have a good number of fans from my obsession as a kid, and your comment almost makes me want to start carrying them again. Maybe when summer rolls around….”

Cloaks

“I bought a beautiful wool cloak at a Renaissance fair. I know strangers will give me funny looks because they are just not at all mainstream. But it’s comfy, warm, and 100% wool, so a few disapproving peasants won’t stop me from wearing it.”

“With hoods, without hoods, half-circle, full circle, winter, summer, spring, fall. The coolest and most multi-use garment ever.”

Regency Dresses

“I love those regency dresses that push your breasts up and are in a babydoll style.”

“Those types of dresses have been pretty popular since Bridgerton came out.”

“I want these too! I haven’t seen many in my country, sadly. Those that I do see are more babydoll retro instead of a more elegant and vintage vibe.”

Butterfly Pins

“I’ve been looking for those butterfly pins where the wings move, but I can’t find any. They were the rage in the 90s.”

“I’m recalling those butterfly pins now, and I can only find a fun modern version.”

“I know the ones! They were made of silver metal, and the wings had strings with beads. Check on Poshmark. I saw them being advertised on my feed.”
