Which fashion trend from the past would you like to see make a comeback?

Every Monday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Their answers will be published anonymously in Young Post. Then readers can vote for their FAVOURITE answer. We will eliminate the contestant with the LEAST votes every week until we have a winner.

The ultimate Brain Game winner will receive six one-day tickets to HK Disneyland, worth HK$2,994.

The Contestants


Contestant 1

Let's take a walk down a stylish memory lane, shall we? I would like to see gloves make a comeback. Not winter gloves, but fancy ladies' gloves, as I like to call them. They add a touch of delicacy to your outfit and you can also wear them as a substitute for winter gloves when it's not too cold. Have a taste of the elegant life by wearing a pair of those eye-catching gloves.

Contestant 2

Bet you haven't heard of this one before - Go-Go Boots! Yes, I repeat, Go-Go Boots. I know, you're probably thinking I'm crazy, but NO! Go-Go Boots were super trendy in the mid-60s. They were low-heeled footwear perfect for dancing. What more could you want? So, I have a dream … Go-Go Boots seriously need to make a comeback. Seriously.

Contestant 3

If overalls are not the most genius design of all time, then I don't know what is! They fit both genders, and make such a statement, telling everyone, "I am vintage! I am in vogue!" However, it might not be quite the "thing" for fashionistas who might have difficulties going to the washroom in overalls. Oops.

Contestant 4

Without a doubt, the chunky, funky platform boots. I'm talking about the 10cm, knee-high boots Elvis Presley and Abba wore on their day. While the boots can be glittery and gorgeous on stage, they can also help vertically challenged (i.e. almost comically short) people like myself on a daily basis. With this tragically outdated 1960s fashion statement, I might finally be able to look people in the eye!

Contestant 5

Everyone wants to be taller but wearing high heels is just too uncomfortable, and men can't wear them. (Men need fashion, too!) So I was hoping that someone would bring back platform shoes. They are just so comfortable, and you'll look way taller. They can also help you avoid the muck on urban streets. After all, who cares how ugly some of those shoes might look? Height is all that matters nowadays, especially in Asia.

Contestant 6

Mood rings back from the 1970s! This funky accessory was created by Josh Reynolds and Maris Ambats, who bonded liquid crystals with quartz stones set into rings. It was so cool! The colour of the ring changed according to your body's temperature. How cool would it be to have a ring telling you how you feel? I'm feeling happy ... I wish I had a mood ring to confirm that!

Contestant 7

Do you remember the "sack dress" from the 1950s? Well, I don't have a perfect figure, so crop tops, which are very popular these years, will never get in my closet. On the other hand, sack dresses are loose, and hang straight from the shoulder to the hemline. They can hide my belly and my shapeless waist, and most important of all, they can create the illusion that I have a slim figure!
