About this Challenge

Style trends have their way of coming back around when we least expect, no matter how old-school they might feel today. Wherever new-age runways take us, we can count on the influence of former decades to make a reappearance sooner or later. Trends manage to come back around more than once, and we're looking forward to taking a stroll down memory lane this week.

For this Challenge, tell us which fashion trend or fad brings back a flood of memories and that you can't wait to see come back in style. Are you a sucker for the baggy jeans look or crop tops? Or maybe you're somewhere between the Victorian corsets and new-age grunge? What makes this one of the most notable trends of all time? Is there a style that you're still hanging onto and can't let go of - despite what today's fashion tries to tell us? Be sure to share photos of these fashion oldies-but-goodies in your story by embedding images so we can revel in the sweet nostalgia of past seasons together!
