Real talk: that shaved-sides hipster quiff is so 2012. The flat top, the fringe, the shabob, the pixie, the bowl cut, the Rachel... let's revive the whole hair-sprayed-to-high-hell thing.

Shoes with lights in 'em, shoes with rollerskates in 'em...footwear in the 90s made us feel like the Batman of Sneakers. We'll take LA Gears over a crate of Crocs any day of the week.

Now that we're all so obsessed with super-skinny slacks, leggings, and -- ugh -- jeggings, the age of stiff shoulders and baggy-as-all-get-out drawers seems like a fond memory. Oh, how we long for the days when pants weren't pants unless they dragged along the sidewalk.

10. And, of course, Pogs.

What true-blue '90s Kid doesn't have dusty binders upon binders of these cardboard collectibles stowed away somewhere? Here's your mission statement for 2013, Internet: make Pogs cool again.
