These fashion trends from 2013 aren't coming back

Last year, it seemed like Miley Cyrus didn't own a single shirt that was longer than her rib cage. Peplums were the ultimate in waist definition. Skinny, colored jeans were the Spandex-filled answer to every girl's denim dreams.
When a fashion trend takes hold, it seems like it's everywhere, from red carpets to fashion magazines to paparazzi snapshots to your local department store. Of course, even consumers know that what seems like a great idea at the time will probably have an expiration date. But how do you know when it's time to purge your closet?
"The thing about fashion is it's completely cyclical," said Lilliana Vazquez, the author of "The Cheap Chica's Guide To Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic."
One of the boldest runway statements last year was the "punk/grunge" look by designer Hedi Slimane for Yves Saint Laurent's fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection. Almost 20 years earlier, Marc Jacobs debuted a grunge music-inspired Perry Ellis collection full of punky plaid, ready-for-a-fight Doc Martens and and layers upon layers of attitude. (Jacobs was fired from Perry Ellis shortly after.)
When she saw punk and grunge re-emerge in fall 2013 collections, Vazquez confessed she had a "cringe" moment.
"I was like, 'Oh, is that really happening?'" she said. "You saw it the first time, and it didn't look good on anyone, and then you're seeing it again."
Does that mean that you should have popped those MC Hammer pants into a time capsule, or held on to your Baby Spice-style platform sneakers from 1996?
Um, no, fashion experts say.
Young people who didn't experience the trend 20 years ago might have fun experimenting with these looks, Style.com's executive editor Nicole Phelps said, but that doesn't mean they're going to flatter the majority of body types. Some of the 1980s-inspired looks that seemed on-trend last year "feel more like a fling," she said.
In fact, here are the fads of last year that fashion experts agree should no longer take up space in your closet.
