The thing I was most acutely aware of were the bootcut jeans - already mentioned (not dark blue, weathered). Plus they were hanging on me. Navy track pants with the white stripes up the side. The clothes were so old that they didn't even retain their original shape. I didn't have these around, but square toed shoes were pretty bad from that time period.

He was wearing wire rim glasses, light blue straight leg jeans and a long black trenchcoat. It took me back to all the guys who dressed like this at my community college in 1993.

Bootcut still exists because a lot of people look awful in skinny. Straight is usually doable. Don't get me started on women's high-waisted skinny clown pants. Even the models look like shit in them. It should be turning around though. The skinny/straight has been ascendant since 2010-ish.

I'm still waiting to hear what people use instead of an iPod when working out.
I had to buy a pair of white running shoes because they were the only ones that gave me enough support. I'm hoping that since the look is to wear white Adidas tennis shoes with jeans and white Supergas with sundresses my white running shoes will come back in style.
I'm surprised older women are wearing the ripped jeans trend. I did that back in high school so I feel silly repeating that style now.

They're not wrong. I know from personal experience that all the exercise in the world won't matter if you negate it with junk food. And if you ever see anything marked "low-fat" it usually means "high-sugar." Of all the bad ideas executed in the 1970s that looked good on paper, the myth that fat makes you fat, a quirk of the English language not shared by other languages who have separate words for dietary fat and obesity, was by far the worst and we are still paying for it today.

I've lived in New York City for 20 years, and I've never lived in a less fashion-conscious era. When I look around on the train, it's utilitarian. It's easier to see trends in men's fashion than women. The tapered leg trouser suit, for example. Women put more into their accessories, like nylon Longchamps bags, Hunter Wellingtons - and even then it's not a real trend. Canada Goose winter parkas came along a few years ago and bumped Northface off the top of the winter gear list, but that's about it. There are non-fashion trends, but fashion itself appears really subdued, and that's across the board, including hair. People wear what they want. I do see a 90s look at least once a day on someone. The influence Girls and Lena Dunham had on the style of heavier girls has subsided. Little girl fashion is basically printed or patterned tights with anything at all shoved over it. I see a lot of people rotate a few items and they stick with it. I know women who do the black tights, tunic and boots thing over and over.
I think it's just become too much trouble to try and put clothes together. A lot of the mass production stores have just misfired over and over (Banana Republic, J Crew - even Madewell). Every once in awhile I'll buy something from Anthropologie, but their stuff is a general bohemian look that doesn't date to any one period, and despite this, they're not super trendy. Maybe a few girls are buying jumpsuits.
I know one girl who works in marketing - she shops mostly at Zara. She's tiny, skinny, friendly and pretty, and when I see what she wears (recently ankle length palazzo pants) it reminds me of when certain looks would catch fire, and fashion was affordable and fun. I think sizes are all over the place, design makes no sense, and unless you want to get a personal shopper at Nordstrom or Saks, people go the path of least resistance now.

On Bedford in Williamsberg the porkie/tatoo aesthetic is alive and well but is taking a backseat to a worse trend, the flamboyantly bohemian wool scullcap and scarf. 30 Rock spoofed that look on Daniel Baldwin's character years ago and yet it persists (Daniel's character played an actor who was going to play Alec character in a tv movie).

I live on the Upper East Side. There's this 50ish mom who works out every day and she's very fit.
However, she wears dark-wash boot-cut jeans that are practically bell-bottoms. She wears them with platform-style shoes or chunky sneakers. She has a fantastic body but she looks ridiculous.
What I THINK is that the wide bottom makes the rest of the leg look slimmer in comparison.

There appear to be a lot of fashion obsessives in this thread. Isn't the entire idea of fashion to wear what looks good on you and not follow so many ridiculous trends? Ripped jeans look disgusting, add the fact that high end stores are passing off ripped and dirty jeans as chic, this shows people will buy anything you stick a high price tag on.
I've worked in graphics my entire career, in the fashion and music businesses. The best looking styles are ones which have a classic element to them, those styles never go out of style. A classic look with a bit of a trendy element, is what usually works for most people who consider themselves fashion conscious.
I realize many people are sheeple and haven't an original idea in their heads. There are many styles which even look absurd on men and women who have nice bodies. Besides looking ridiculous, even on normal weight people, unless they're made with some sort of stretch material, skinny jeans can be a heath hazard.
Create your own trends, that shows you are truly 'fashion forward'. One of my close female friends started wearing vintage tapestry and carpet coats over 10 years ago, people were always stopping her on the street asking where she got her coats, now I've noticed these coats are all over the high end fashion mags. Of course, thousand dollar versions of her coats! My friend was also wearing bangs many years before they came back into style. This woman has always worn what works for her, that's the best advice anyone can give about fashion. If you can pull off a style, then it works for you.

The problem with fashion, music and most pop culture in general, it's all been done before.
The so-called 'arbiters of taste' are always bending over backwards trying to come ups with something new when basically, especially in music and fashion, there is nothing new, just constant re-hashing of past trends.
Anna Wintour's latest Met Gala was an epic failure. Anna supposedly honored Rei from Commes de Garçons, yet invited clueless empty people like the KarTrashians, who came to the gala half naked. Those clueless trashy idiots did not honor Rei. Only a handful of celebs actually wore anything close to Rei's avant garden vision. Rei is actually anti-fashion.

Cupcakes, bacon, craft beers, fried eggs on burgers, pie slices, and fried chicken will never go out of style (except maybe the eggs on burgers) but their moment of chic has passed, at least in hipster zones like Brooklyn and the Lower East Side. It seems sort of poseur to order them now.

I have psoriasis on my calves, and wear knee high tube socks with my almost-to-the-knees shorts. I have them in white and black. My fave shoes are white Rockports I got at their outlet store in 2001. The church I grew up in had their annual Homecoming 2 Sundays ago. I wore my blue and white striped seersucker suit, with a pink shirt, white tie, belt and shoes. I got lots of compliments.

I agree with the poster that mentioned formal dining rooms. I work at an antique store/auction house & no one wants these things. The same goes for wedding china. I have to break it gently to customers every week that their prized mahogany dining set probably won't sell for more than $100. Formal living is on its way out. Also- accent walls. Light colored woods are coming back though.

Dining tables with extensions for the huge family gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas seem mostly out.
I just went to a sale of antiques last weekend. There were several dining sets of various sizes. One was a rare Monterey large dining table and eight or ten chairs, all matching, with sideboard. Perfect condition. Even the collectors at the sale wouldn't buy it. Too big. And the price was steeply discounted. What they did buy were small pieces, lamps and small side tables. Decor mostly, not furniture. (Monterey is out, again).
People think "midcentury" is only one particular style, in reality it is many styles. The picture below is similar in style, but the one they had was smaller than this.

So much comes back into style, every generation discovers many past generations styles, especially in clothing.
Just pick up a high fashion mag like VOGUE or Bazaar, the past is always mined. These fashion designers are simply recycling old fashion styles by tweaking the cut to make it appear 'fresh' and 'new', when those who know better realize the 'new' styles are not new at all.
Hipsters are the worst offenders, all they do is appropriate something from the past, from their clothing, the 'artisanal' foods they eat, their furnishings to, well, everything.
So far, they've mined the 1950s, the 1960s and the 1970s. I assume at this point they are into the 1980s. Are they in Day-Glo, Flock of Seagulls hairstyles and New Wave clothes yet?

As a woman who wears a lot of vintage looks, I have to say, it seems like every decade has been revisited and done to death. I suspect thats why we are seeing a lot of schizo “ugly fashion” right now (i.e. Gucci), including the abhorrent street fashion (logos, sneakers, primary colors) that is ubiquitous these days. Anyway, to answer the question...that cutsie Zooey Deschanel look. I think hyper-femininity will be taking a backseat for a while.

Does camouflage clothing fit into this category? In any case, it has got to stop. Camouflage started showing up around the time the Vietnam war ended in the early 70's. I just don't get it. Are people supposed to think you were in the military and somehow that is chic? While it might still be sold in stores, for me it is, as OP put it, painfully outdated. Perhaps granny dresses should make a comeback?

Most people were never home to watch daytime soaps, yet somehow most people did seem to know what was going on. Not only hausfraus watched soaps. Lots of men, especially gay men, watched and still watch them. People used a VCR or TIVO to tape daytime TV. Cable boxes now have a DVR option to record what you miss while at work.
