I have a theory about fashion trends:
trends don't end because people get tired of them, they end because people don't want to be associated with the ugly/poor/annoying people that inevitably end up latching onto those trends, and "ruin" them for the people who initially got into them.
It's not even about not feeling special anymore: there are several out-of-style trends that would make you special if you tried reviving them right now, but since those trends are still associated with people we find ridiculous, we don't try to revive them because their memory is still vivid in our minds.
For instance: frosted tip hair. It doesn't look any dumber than shit like the manbun that was all the rage a few years ago, but nobody will try to bring it back until we all forget about Guy Fiery.
