Blast from the Past: 7 Nostalgic Pop Culture Comebacks

Is nostalgia the latest trend in pop culture? Everywhere we look, things we loved from the past are being revived – and it's making us feel all warm and fuzzy inside! So today we’re taking a look at a few of our faves. From fashion to music, here are some of the best pop culture moments that have been making a comeback.


Scrunchies: Scrunchies were a staple for every 90’s girl. Now they're back with a vengeance, and we can see why. These hair accessories come in all colors and patterns (some even have pockets!) and are a fun and easy way to add a pop of color to your outfit.


Vinyl Records: Some may argue that vinyl records never really went away, but there’s definitely been a surge of new listeners in recent years. Music lovers are rediscovering the warm sound that only vinyl can provide, artists are coming out with special edition records, and new record stores are popping up all over the place.
