Sorry the clout you think you have is not original; you are just a copy.

The 7 Best Fashion Trends From The 1900s That Have Made A Comeback

The 1900's was a wild time. From the first and second World War, the stock market crash, the African American Civil Right's Movement, and the construction and demolition of the Berlin Wall, it was a busy time, but even during this busy time, the fashion industry was booming. Breaking free from other countries fashion expectations, America was finally setting their own trends or revamping others. The trends that hit the market during this time, are making a comeback. Will you be apart of the revival?

1. Chokers.

Choker's date back to the Sumer empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt when they were worn for protection, but in the early 1900's they became a fashion statement. In American culture, they became popular with either a simple black ribbon or even strands of pearls. After the Art Deco era, they lost their popularity and were even known as "Dog Collars". It wasn't until 2015, that they really made a return.

2. High top Converse.

Originating in the early 1900's, Chuck Taylor started selling these shoes for basketball. It wasn't until the 1980's that these became a must-have for fashion. In the early 2000's, trendsetters have rushed to grab the latest pair of low-tops, but in recent years, the revival of high-tops are prominent.

3. Crop tops

The entrance of crop tops into the world began around 1940 but it wasn't until celebrities in the 1980's and 1990's began rocking the crop top. It was also extremely popular for men in the 80's to wear crop tops. This fashion trend was revived in the mid-2010's and doesn't seem to be disappearing any time soon. It has even grown to include crop hoodies to the mix.

4. High waisted jeans.

Glamourized by Hollywood, High Waisted jeans started their fame with Marilyn Monroe in the 1960's. From the 1960's on, High Waisted jeans popped in and out of stardom. In today's, fashion trends, you can catch high waisted jeans or shorts on teens across the globe.


5. Velvet.

In the 1960's velvet was extremely popular among men and were known for the comfortable shirts and pants of that time. Now, it is seen everywhere and is popular in women's fashion including articles of clothing like shirts, dresses and even shoes. You can rock an all velvet outfit from your choker and crop top to your High Top Chuck Taylor's.

6. Fanny packs.

When fanny packs first entered the fashion world, these bags were popular among sports players like skiers to hold their lunches. In the 1980's to 1990's it became a vacation bag that was more accessible and lightweight holding things like money and maps but for today, it's that and more. You can see these on almost anyone walking the streets of Hollywood but maybe with an updated, more stylish and expensive version.Melody Jacobs

7. Clout goggles.

Known by a different name before, 'The Kurt Cobain Glasses", Cobain brought these glasses into style. They were revived with "rappers" of this generation along with the new name of "Clout Goggles" attached to them.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
