Everyone Is Wearing '90s Snap Clip Barrettes Again

'90s hair is alive and well in 2018. On the Fall runways, the claw clip had a comeback at Alexander Wang, while the comb-headband was resurrected at Prabal Gurung. The latest throwback hair accessory starting to bubble up on Instagram, where all old trends boomerang, is the snap barrette (also called contour clip or snap clip). One look at the triangular hair pin will hit you with some major middle school nostalgia.

Oh What Was: Stirrup Pants

We all know that fashion is cyclical and that most trends — even ones we’d thought had gasped their last breath — tend to return in one form or another.

While the thought of wearing stirrup pants may make you cringe, it’s time to give them a second chance. Today’s versions are sleeker and decidedly chicer. They play well with the massive athleisure trend as a sort of leggings version 2.0. But they’re also turning up in office-friendly styles that take inspiration from trousers. And unlike the 80s when stirrups were strictly worn inside shoes, fashion girls are opting to wear the straps on the outside as well.

For her post-performance ensemble, Lizzo chose an '80s-tastic purple dress complete with massive, off-the-shoulder puff sleeves, a pleated circle skirt, and a wide V-neck. She basically looked like high school Josie from Never Been Kissed but fashion. What's an '80s-inspired ensemble without a scrunchie?

The iPod and MP3 players without a doubt took over for the records, walkman and CD player lovers of the world. No more looking through cassette tapes, or rewinding them back with your finger or pencil to the beginning of whatever song you were obsessed with at the time. However, you can't deny the amazingness and some what nostalgic essence of holding an actual mix tape.  Yeah, I miss those days. Tears aside for more information on the Walkman click here :}

Advantage : Pocket size tape players are portable and can be carried out to any place since they can operate on batteries.

Disadvantage : The cassettes get damaged after some time due to regular usage.
