What style, fad or fashion accessory from years gone by would you like to repopularize?

n

Jamie Gadette: Slap bracelets. Maybe expand the empire to include slap chokers, headbands and belts.

n

n

Jeremiah Smith: I think that people would look pretty swank in those pilgrim hats with the buckles on them. Either that, or the monocle. Those have always seemed pretty dapper to me.

n

n

Jeff Reese: I would have to say either MC Hammer pants or “steps” shaved into your sideburns must make a long-awaited comeback—I have a hard time understanding how either of them ever stopped being awesome!

n

n

Manda Bull: Beehives: The higher the hair, the closer to God.

n

Monica Sorensen: Jelly shoes. I have this sick and twisted desire to own a pair and wear them in public. Gross, I know.

n

n

Derek Carlisle: Cocaine and disco seemed to work better than meth and techno.

n

n

Doug Kruithof: Hmm—how about those yuppie Izod shirts with the super-bright, pastelly colors? Oh, yeah—they’ve unfortunately made it back already!

n

n

Chelsie Booker: It would make me quite pleased to see extremely wide-leg denim come back—specifically JNCOs. I can’t think of anything better than ass pockets that are at least 2 feet long.

n

n

Nick Clark: Wasn’t there a time when being a bit chunky was a sign of affluence?

n

Bill Frost: Caffeinated water, like Water Joe and H20 Zip—can’t get ’em around here anymore. I have to have my personal assistant Jackie add NoDoz to my water now.

n

n

Andrea Moore: Whatever style or fad my entire wardrobe falls under is what I want to come back. I want to be cool; I just don’t know how.

n

n

Scott Renshaw: Remember that crazy fad of people taking personal responsibility for their own actions, like their finances and the upbringing of their children? That was awesome.

n

n

Cody Winget: Pegging your pant legs. That was so cool and fashionable. Maybe a certain couple of stores that cater to very hip, young folks will start dressing their models with pegged-leg jeans, and kids all over the valley will be sporting them in droves.
