15 Fashion Trends From My Childhood That I Secretly Wish Would Come Back In Style

From jelly sandals to body glitter, the late 90s had it going ON.

2. Body Glitter!

I used to apply body glitter with such reckless abandon that I left a trail of sparkles everywhere I went circa 1997-2001.

I'd like to say I'd use moderation if I got my paws on some body glitter today...but that would be a LIE.

6. Ring Pops!

I don't know about you, but at my school, wearing a Ring Pop around as a pretend engagement ring was the thing to do.

I'm seriously considering bringing this trend back for the sole purpose of fending off the advances of creepy guys at bars. I imagine it'd go something like this:

Creepy dude: "[Some generic and uninspired pick-up line]"

Me: *flashing left hand bedecked with a half-eaten Blue Raspberry Ring Pop* "Oh I'm so sorry but I'm engaged. Do you like my ring? My fiancé told me it's been handed down in his family for generations, isn't that just so sweet?! No, seriously. It's really sweet. Do you want a lick?"

Creepy dude: *backs away slowly, terror-stricken*

10. Scrunchies!

Double-90s-whammy? VELOUR scrunchies. So fuzzy. So fierce. Full disclosure: I used to pair my velour scrunchies with matching velour leggings. My scrunchie game brought all the elementary school boys to the yard.

11. Tamagotchis!

Sure, this was technically a toy, but I'd argue it was also a fashion statement, considering your backpack wasn't complete without one of these babies dangling off of it.

[Sidenote: I was never allowed to have one of these, and I'm still kind of bitter about it...So I just ordered one on eBay, because that's what grown-ups do.]
