1980s fashion trends make a comeback, '80s fashion trends During the last few months of Fall 2009 fashion shows, we got a glimpse of fashion forward as well as a bit of deja vu. Trends from the 1980s and early '90s have popped up on the runway again.

Here's a look at our fashion photos from years past and how they compare with what's in store for autumn and winter.

But the question is: How will these looks fair when they're taken to the streets? We've seen lots of leggings and long shirts over the last few years. What other fashion trends of the 1980s are showing up on the streets today? Share your photos in our Your Scene gallery. Or use the comments section to tell us which trends you hope come back and which, like, totally gag you with a spoon.
