I may be dating myself, but there are a few items that I wore way back in the day that I’m thinking I should have held on to. We know that fashion is circular – what goes around always comes back around! And this Summer, there are a few throwback trends that have made their way back into the stores – and will be making their way back into some of our closets too. Get into these four throwback trends that are haute right now!
Before the word ‘hipster’ was an official term, all the hip people (and some of their parents) were rocking Birkenstocks! These flat sandals were the epitome of cool, and they were comfy, which was an unbeatable duo. They’ve gotten a fashionable refresh for 2014 – Givenchy created their own version in this trendy, floral print leather.

The wildly-colored paisley prints that we wore, once upon a time, were fabulously tacky. But the current paisley print fashions are just fabulous! This Clover Canyon Havana Paisley Dress offers a fresh take on the print. It pairs abstract, oversized paisleys with a sunny hue for a fun, flirty summer frock!
Ahh, who can forget the jelly sandal? Our obsession with plastic shoes knew no bounds, and luckily for us they’ve gotten a luxurious refresh this year. Sophia Webster’s ‘Violeta’ jelly sandal is the perfect pick to rock those colorful jellies again, in a casual but chic way!
From farmers to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, denim overalls have had their place everywhere from the field to hip hop. Overalls started making their return this past winter, with many brands creating leather or leather-like versions. Now that the weather is warming up, denim shorts overalls, like these Hudson Florence Shortalls, are a popular pick for summer concerts, barbeques, and festival wear.
