In middle school I used to have this killer woven backpack that I got at a festival. It was the epitome of cool for my twelve-year-old self. Then one day I carried it to a relative’s house where a (really uncool) relative complimented me on the backpack. It was the last day I carried it.
Too bad I don’t have it anymore though. It was pretty much this shirt on a purse-sized backpack. I was only about eighteen years ahead of the trend.
I also had fluffy bangs in middle school (annnd elementary) and we know how hot those are right now. So pretty much everything I did twenty years ago accidentally is now cool and trendy.
Next prediction for a trend: perms? IOU sweatshirts? Looney Tunes t-shirts? Because I’ve got those covered too.
