The 80’s and 90’s were great times, weren’t they?
This week, while I was curating some great Back To School Collections for Ebay, I realized just how many of these old school styles and trends are coming back (whether we like it or not).
If you’re starting your back to school shopping and looking to snag some of the latest fall trends for your kid’s return to school, below are just a few of the awesomely, retro styles that are totally going to make you wish you didn’t throw a few things away!
1. Combat Boots a la Doc Martin
File these under, things we should not have thrown away! What 90’s child/teen didn’t live in their Doc Martin Combat Boots? This season this combat boot style is all the rage and in every variety of colors and patterns you can imagine!
Check out those red ones!

Leather is a trend that has been in for quite a while now, but this fall you can expect to see more of these cropped jackets with some 80’s stitching and flair to them. Seriously, how adorable are those wings?
