Things that remind me of middle school that have (thankfully) not yet made a fashion comeback: crimping irons, scrunchies, and those plastic circle thingies that you thread your shirt hem through, to create some kind of ad hoc shirt ponytail. Related: DIY Woven Friendship Bracelet Things that remind me of middle school that I’m super happy to see back on the scene: skinny jeans, neon, and my favourite 2012 summer trend, friendship bracelets! Seriously, have you noticed how friendship bracelets have reappeared with a vengeance, across the fashion spectrum? Everyone from Net-A-Porter.com to Urban Outfitters has picked up this trend and, as a former friendship bracelet addict, I couldn’t be happier. Related: Save The Bumblebee With A Cute Jenny Bird Bracelet Circa 1998, I was the kid that would load up my wrists with all kinds of boondoggle bracelets (squares! circles! cobra!), embroidery thread creations, and even a rock-climbing rope or two for good luck. Almost 15 years later, not much has changed, except that this trend is now available across a wide variety of price points and styles, satisfying every taste.
