As the Y2K craze died down after the number 2000 safely appeared on clocks without a predicted doomsday scenario occurring, we thought that our tearful farewells to the 90s would be the last we’d see of the decade. But in the last few years, we’ve seen a sudden resurgence with the revival of tattoo chokers, and a renewed appreciation of VHS tapes and new jack swing. The resurgence of the 90s won’t be letting us down, as chokers, layered necklaces and denim on denim have been littering the runways.
To stay ahead of the curve, keep reading for the top 5 upcoming fashion trends you’ll soon see trickling into your nearest department store.

PVC Plastic Jackets
PVC jackets are following their PVC choker brethren, as the rise of this plastic jacket has trickled down from the runways and taken online stores by storm.
