Let These 2008 Fashion Trends Be Your 2018 Spring Style Inspiration

We spotted some timeless festival season lewks in here.

Spring is upon us. Although you may be ready for more sunshine and warmer temperatures, can you say the same for your wardrobe?

You may think some of the popular fashion trends from 2008 are old and tired, but some haven’t gone away. For some reason, shirts that fall of the shoulder and leggings that shine haven’t lost their luster. Sure, its been a decade…but you’ve got to admit when a good thing is worth keeping around.

Pack up those sweaters and earmuffs and dust off these popular items from 2008 that will help you step into Spring with style.

  • 1 Peasant Tops
    Is this peak Coachella vibes or what? With festival season right around the corner, you can’t escape having at least one hippy-esque peasant top in your arsenal.

  • 2 Off-the-shoulder Tops
    This trend never really went anywhere, and for good reason! Who doesn’t love a cold shoulder moment?

  • 3 Satin Dresses
    No matter the style or color, you can’t beat a simple satin number on a cool Spring night. Eve is killing it in this chartreuse number, paired with a simply black shoe and clutch.

  • 4 Gladiator Sandals
    Rihanna was straight up stuntin’ in these strappy platform gladiator sandals, and we can’t wait to do the same once that toes-out weather hits.

  • 5 High-Waist Shorts
    Kelly Rowland has legs for days and showed them off in this high waist denims shorts. If you can cinch the waist and serving a little leg while you’re at it, why not? Let this be your inspo for when its time to shed a few layers of clothing.

  • 6 Vests, Vests and More Vests
    No parka? No problem. The vest trend is making a comeback right when you’ll need an alternative to a heavy winter coat. Here is Beyoncé strutting her stuff in a military style number at the 2008 World Music Awards.

  • 7 Boho Headbands

    The festival style headband has been around since the ’70s and was popularized by celebrities like Paris Hilton in 2008. With Coachella just around the corner, you’ll be seeing a lot of these soon.

  • 8 Liquid Leggings
    Who would 2008 Kim Kardashian be without her trusty liquid leggings? Not only is this functional item still around, but we’re also seeing latex as the fabric of choice in dresses, skirts and shoes. Spring is the perfect time to rock this surprisingly breathable item.

  • 9 Pork Pie Hats
    When all else fails (and Spring showers try to rain on your parade), throw a hat on it.
