Fashion Flashback1 of 11
By Zoe Jones
Bright white pumps, shoulder pads, head-to-toe denim—we've spent the last decade cringing over our past fashion faux pas. Yet here we are, falling for styles that we swore we never would again. Luckily, this time we've figured out how to wear them today in ways we won't regret later.
Chunky Heels2 of 11
By the late '90s spindly stilettos made our chunky heels seem passé. But the comfy alternative has returned. Pair your block heels with skinny jeans or cropped pants to keep your silhouette from looking too clunky.
Jumpsuits3 of 11
The iconic jumpsuit is back and better than ever: Wear it with a tailored blazer for work or sexy stilettos for a night out. Stick to monochromatic styles for a slimming effect.
High-Shine Fabrics4 of 11
Forget the garish disco fabrics of the '70s and '80s, this time around sheen is chic, thanks to silhouettes that are tailored or voluminous rather than skintight.
Denim on Denim5 of 11
The once-tacky allover denim trend looks edgy and effortlessly cool when paired with a black cropped top and a chain-strap leather bag.
Reflective Shades6 of 11
A big hit in the '80s—then rarely seen anywhere but on the slopes—reflective shades are once again a must-have for summer. Try matching them to your bag or jacket, just keep the rest of your look simple to balance out the shine.
Flight Jacket7 of 11
The high school favorite is making a comeback, attracting loud cheers from the fashion crowd. To give the style a 2013 update, skip the combat boots and pair it with heels instead.
White Heels8 of 11
This former fashion no-no looks best when worn with solid shades for a head-to-toe color-blocked outfit.
Baseball Caps9 of 11
Batter up—the baseball cap is back. Skip logos and heavily stitched letters in favor of a modern leather design that's more sophisticated. Bonus: It acts as a second layer of sun protection on top of your daily SPF product.
Classic Kicks10 of 11
It's time to dig out those old school sneakers collecting dust in your closet. Pair them with your favorite dress, skirt or jeans, to keep your look feminine and modern.
Shoulder Pads11 of 11
The '80s staple we all loved to hate has won us over. This time around the shape is more subtle, plus structured shoulders help narrow your waist—who doesn't love that?
