13 Summer Trends That Are A Major Blast From The Past

This isn't the first time any of these fashion trends have been worn, they've all made an appearance in our parents generation and maybe even our grandparents. Even though these accessories are from decades past, that doesn't mean they are out dated a bit. Every time these trends become popular again, we always seem to find a way to make it our own and personalize it. These thirteen trends may have already seen stores, but we're all still rocking them every day this summer.

1. Mom shorts

Giphy

Every girl is digging the mom shorts this summer, especially if they're destroyed and frayed. High rise denim is making a serious come back.

2. Belts

Giphy

Whether you're accessorizing with a gaudy black leather belt or a simple white shoelace, belts are back.

3. Chokers

Giphy

Going out? Going to brunch with your family? Going to an 8 am? There's a choker for all occasions.

4. Tube tops

Giphy

Seriously, at this point what girl doesn't own at least two tube tops? They pair perfectly with your destroyed mom shorts and are the perfect simple summer top.

5. Birkenstocks

Giphy

I personally vouch for how comfortable and versatile these shoes are. I couldn't survive summer without them in all honesty. The best part about them is that you can rock them with pretty much every outfit.

6. Rompers and jumpsuits

Giphy

Summer just wouldn't be the same if girls didn't walk around in jumpsuits like it's 1985.

7. Overalls

Giphy

Overalls are back and they aren't just for the country loving girls, they're a summer fashion staple for every girl. Just a tip, they make the perfect outfit when worn with one of your favorite tube tops. Even better when the overalls are cut offs made into shorts.

8. Crop tops

Giphy

Does anyone even wear shirts that fit right anymore? Even when I buy a regular t shirt, I make sure to tie it up or cut it off to make it into a crop top. This is definitely a phase, but taking full advantage of it while it lasts.

9. High rise bikinis and one piece swim suits

Giphy

You know, those one pieces that were worn by every eighty's female lifeguard in the movies, yeah those are definitely back in. High on the hips and cheeky one pieces are the only way to do a one piece this summer. As well as high rise bottoms for your bikini, very trendy.

10. Bell bottom jeans

Giphy

The wider the bottom, the better. Finding a pair with embroidery on the pockets or down the seam is the key to really pulling bell bottoms off this summer.

11. Denim skirts

Giphy

Oh yes, tuck that shirt into your high rise denim skirt and work it. They're adorable and retro, just like every other fashion you're sporting this summer.

12. Scrunchies

Giphy

Yes, scrunchies are back, but they aren't just cool to hold your hair back anymore. They also double as the perfect summer bracelet. Slide a couple scrunchies on your wrist and the outfit is complete.

13. Jean jackets

Giphy

There's been a theme throughout this listicle and it's definitely been denim. So naturally, the denim jacket has made the list. Super trendy and it's literally a must have for every girl's closet. There is nothing better than breaking out your jean jacket after the sun goes down on a summer night.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
