Don’t call it a comeback! The styles that you are about to see have been here for years. True, they weren’t always as popular as they are now. But, isn’t that the beauty of a trend? It’s all that anyone can think about for a few months and then—BAM!—it’s gone just like that.

Fortunately, though, style has a way of reinventing itself. What’s popular today probably won’t be popular tomorrow—but it will be popular again sometime down the line. Any true “master of style” knows that and knows how to identify which trends will eventually come back again. To show you what we mean, we’ve picked out 10 styles that used to be popular that have made a comeback in 2012. You might want to get on these, like, now. Because if history has taught us anything, it’s that these styles won’t be popular forever. But they are popular now.
