Like many things in life, trends, styles, and ideas come and go in cycles. Often times, popular styles that were once "in" decades ago, become revived and renewed years later with new generations. As much as you might not want to believe your mom when she tells you that her favorite Levi Mom Wedgie-Fit jeans are coming back in style, she's probably right. So, maybe tell your mom to keep her old jeans from the 70s and her faux fur jacket because old trends are back and certainly being revived.
Here are some trends that are back on the rise:
1. Bell-bottom jeans
One of the most popular pairs of jeans to wear in the 60s and 70s, bell-bottoms are back on the rise. Often made with denim, bell-bottoms jeans are tighter at the waist and thigh and flare out from the calf to the bottom. Perfect with a pair of wedges in the summer, or booties in the winter.
2. Mom fit jeans
A popular term for high-waisted, sometimes wedgie fit denim pants, these jeans were extremely popular in the 80s and 90s. They were mainly worn by middle-aged women at the time which led to the name "mom jeans." The jeans consist of a high waist that rise over the belly button making your butt look longer, larger, and flatter. They come in many different washes and can even be ripped. This style is definitely coming back, and if you are ever looking for a great authentic pair check out levis.com!
Reebok is an English footwear and apparel company that was established in 1958. The company is well known for its signature line of shoes and sportswear apparel. In the 80s and 90s Reeboks were extremely popular sneakers to wear. Today their classic white shoes have come back in style, both low tops, and high tops. Plus, thanks to Gigi Hadid as a Reebok rep joining the company and creating her own line, they have definitely become more popular within the past few years.

5. Faux fur
Also known as fake fur, faux fur is made from pile fabric, and was engineered to have the appearance and feel of real fur.

Hoops are definitely back on the rise.
