Fashion is cyclic but sometimes it returns to the things we really want to forget. For example, bright-red dresses or fishnet shirts. The dominating tendency of the past year is the return of the provocative and bold fashion of the 2000s. The iconic images we know from our childhood are returning to the runways, red carpets, and city streets.

We at Enlighten are convinced that it’s not fashion we should be following, but common sense, and some trends of the past were really cool and are worth trying again.

1. Fishnet clothing


Big and small, the ones that look like a fishnet or something more elegant — netted clothing is back in business. They are on the runways, red carpets, and in trendsetter’s wardrobes. This kind of outfit spent a lot of time in the spotlight in the 2000s, and the same is happening now. It is up to you to decide whether this is a bold statement or just some vulgar short-lived trend.

2. Cargo pants


There was a time when the style of Lara Croft was respected and copied by every teenager, and then some more elegant styles became trendy. In fact, pants that are this wide are very comfortable, so it is no wonder that they are back. And the people who don’t worry about the ever-changing fashion trends didn’t even know that these pants weren’t trendy for the past decade. Kourtney Kardashian even added an important accessory — a chain on her belt loops.

This trend is totally impractical, but still very feminine-looking — and it was a dream of all the fans of Charmed. It is coming back again in 2020. Trendy girls know that this piece of clothing highlights a beautiful body and looks great with high-waisted jeans and skirts.

4. Animal prints


Women will never stop loving animal prints and wanting to imitate elegant leopards. Fashion stars forgot about this trend for a while, but today it has become popular again. You don’t have to wear a leopard or a snake print from head to toe, it is enough to wear one accessory in order to make any boring or trivial outfit look fresh again.

5. Bright-pink clothes


Are your eyes tired from those acid-looking colors? Bright is not only back, but it is also super-successful in the fashion industry now, so we are going to have to enjoy seeing fuchsia in the spotlight! The trend for this mega-bright pink is on the rise with the Instagram generation.

6. Sportswear


When celebrities from the middle of the 2000s started wearing the Juicy Couture tracksuits made of velour or crazy colors, it shook the fashion world and everyone tried to forget this trend like a nightmare. Today, there is a tendency that says you can wear sportswear any time you want and there is even a hashtag for this trend, #TracksuitNation. Fashion brands are making entire collections with sweatshirts, sweatpants, and hoodies with rhinestones. This old trend is living a new life in the mix of street and luxury fashion.
