Sometimes stylish pieces can hit the market well before their time. Mullet skirts would never have survived a New York summer in 2008, but in 2012 they were all the rage. Same goes for graphic print tees. So we thought: Why not look through the internet’s archives for the craziest looking threads that are now becoming crazy trends? Enjoy:
The Tall Tee Is Now The High Low Tee
Remember making fun of people in the South (or in the ‘hood) for wearing super long tees? Well, now you better eat your words because the high-low tee is the bizness! And A$AP Rocky is just fine spreading the word!
Grandma’s Knit Sweaters Are Now The Oversized Hipster Sweater
You can thank grandmas the world over (oh, and Bill Cosby) for all the warmth those knit sweaters bring! The bolder the pattern, the better!
Clunky Timberlands Are Now Stylish
We hated wearing those clunky Timberlands to school when the blustery weather hit. But then Colette brought ‘em back this season with some snazzy prints! And people went wiiiiild!
MC Hammer Pants Are Now Called Harem Pants
The new version of the MC’s parachute pants are hyper-stylized these days. Available in wool, cotton, linen, and every other fabric out there, these pants are considered “boho-chic.”
