When I think of trends in fashion or accessories, I always visualize them as a swinging pendulum. As soon as something reaches the nadir of cool, it immediately starts its journey back to the other end of the spectrum; some things take longer than others to complete that swing, but in a market that feeds on aesthetic nostalgia, anything that was very cool at one time will almost certainly regain the title eventually, in some form.
