Funny how trends and styles that were once the “in thing” will suddenly become uncool. A style that was the rave of the moment with everyone getting over themselves to get in and, boom, became obsolete. Just like that.
It doesn’t even help that if for whatever reasons you find yourself rocking any of these out of favor, old school style; chances are you are going to be ridiculed, shunned, made fun of or even getting cursorily glances from total strangers – like you committed one heinous unforgivable crime.
That said, let’s take a trip back in time to look at trends that have gone the full cycle — styles that were at the time – desirable, cool, and fashionable. Then fall out of style and were relegated to the backwaters of fashion. And are now making a comeback.
Ermm… one thing though, don’t laugh. You might find these dressing trends funny. And if you want to check out more funny sweatshirts and hoodies trends, you may want to visit justcoolsweaters.com
Back in the ’90s: Sweater tied around the neck
Uh… why in hell’s name would anyone go about wearing a sweater around their neck without ever wearing them properly?
Welcome to the 90’s mate. This preppy look seems to be back in full swing once again. Sure, this look works in a weird way and from afar might seem unnecessary – you know, like if you’re not going to wear the darn sweatshirts why carry it along at all?
It sure does have some practical use even if it isn’t obvious – it is keeping your neck warm, at least. Plus, the drape comes in handy when you start feeling some chills.
We’re right in the middle of the ’80s: Baja Hoodies surge
Ok, these weren’t called the hoodies then, pullovers were more like it. They are roomy pullovers with large slits on each side, a hood, one gigantic centered front pocket, and two thick cords that don’t serve any obvious use.
Baja hoodies were associated with the backstreets in the ’80s and thanks to the 1982 movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High its reputation as a countercultural fashion was cemented forever.
However, a variant of the pullover is making a comeback; though this time, its neck cut is more like the regular college sweatshirts we see around now.
Wearing sweatshirt around the waist
Well, this one as funny as it may seem, when you try to understand the logic of tying a sweater around the waist seems to be a rave of the moment, especially among younger girls.
It is seen as part of the athleisure culture sweeping through street fashion scene. The trend has caught on with Millennials, especially the outdoorsy types.
Looking beyond the ridiculousness of the style, underneath is a practical purpose – a handy piece of cloth you can wear when temperature drops while you are out and about.
Half on…half off
With all the trends we’ve seen so far, one thing is clear, your sweatshirts and hoodies don’t have to be worn in the traditional sense.
You can stylize, add some twist and outrightly go bizarre on your looks. Talking of weird, this style half on…half off takes the dressing trends for sweaters to a whole new level.
Instead of wearing your sweatshirt, or even, draping it around your neck, you pull out all the stops and wear it but still not wearing it.
Ermm if you’re a bit confused with this description, think of those designer one-sleeved, cropped sweaters; but in this case, you’re recreating that style yourself.
