From Flavorwire, and designed by Emily Miethner, this colorful illustration charts what companies like Urban Outfitters have known for awhile: today’s painfully lame trends are tomorrows cutting edge fashion. For example, in the platform-ridden mid 90’s, nothing seemed more outdated than a pair of white keds- but more then 10 years later — voila, the hottest item for spring/summer.  However, one item we can be almost certain will never come back in style? The wide legged JNCO’s and Kikwears of 96,97, and 98- for some reason those seem to exist in a seperate sphere of their own- sure to never be touched by either hipster anthropologists nor fashion enthusiasts for years to come. So what items do you think are do back for a comeback some time soon?
