Teenagers today flock to places like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21, where many of the seasonal styles are trends from the 90's. These are popular because they have become huge nostalgic pieces, reminiscent of our parents days as young adults. Even kids who have no connection to the 90's participate in this recycling of fashion due to their pure fascination in the time period.
But what will be the next reclaimed era of style? The answer is easily, the early 2000's. When Brittany Spears ruled the track suit and Ashley Tisdale was never seen without a skirt layered over baggy jeans. This iconic time in style will be what our kids are asking us about in the years to come, and I can't wait!
