Future predictions.

Based on previous trends and cultural movements, I will predict what future cultural trends will make a comeback in the next 5-10 years.

Growing up in the 80's
80’s Nostalgia – http://bit.do/growingupinthe80s

Trendy and not so trendy trends.

Trends from the 80’s and 90’s are creeping back, some are fine to make a comeback and some we dread. Here’s a list of trends from the past few decades that might cause some nostalgia:

From the 80’s:

  • ‘A’ Team
  • TMNT
  • E.T.
  • Michael Jackson
  • Indiana Jones
  • Star Wars
  • Walkman
  • Hypercolour
  • Gremlins
  • Roller Skates
  • ‘Hammer’ Pants

From the 90’s:

  • Sega
  • Nickelodeon
  • Fresh Prince
  • Vanilla Ice
  • Ace Ventura
  • Zelda
  • Jumanji
  • Discman
  • Yoyo
  • Doc Martens
  • Jurassic Park

Making it’s comeback…

I did not include trends from the 00’s because most of them have not stopped yet, trends like: GTA, CoD, Pirates of the Caribbean, iPod, Social Media, Smart Phones, etc. There are trends from the 80’s and 90’s that are trying to make a comeback. These trends include: TMNT, Jurassic Park and Star Wars with their recently released and announced movies, and fashion trends including ‘Hammer’ pants, crop tops, torn jeans, flannel, chokers and very recently Doc Martens.

Past trends in the future:

If I was to guess what trends were coming back in 5-10 years, one trend would be Robot Wars/Robotica/Battle Bots. This guess is based off how programming is starting to become popular. The US are implementing the idea that “coding should be taught in all schools” and they are just now making coding part of their curriculum. Children having the common knowledge of coding will bring in the degree of family competition, who’s child is better. They will have robot programming competitions at the kid’s birthday parties and series on TV like Robot Wars, etc. will become popular.

What do you think the next cultural trends will be in the next 5-10 years? Leave your ideas down in the comments section, additionally, if you think some honorable mentions deserve to be added to the 80’s and 90’s list, add them in the comments too. I would love to know what makes you feel nostalgic.
