When we buy something, we want to have it serve us as long as possible. We want it to work 100 per cent of its capabilities as well. But sometimes it just so happens that the item we love so much loses its relevance, giving way to innovation. While this is difficult to accept, those changes are making our world better.

Fashion is never quiet and even classic items can lose relevance. For example, a small black dress in the Coco Chanel style, which was previously one of the basic clothing pieces, was replaced by a little white dress. Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber and other celebrity fashionistas have already picked up on the trend.

This functional accessory could previously be combined with any type of clothing, whether it’s classic or athletic. Today, however, more feminine watches with a thin strap become relevant again. They can even better complement an elegant look than a stylish bracelet might.

4. USB flash drive

Previously, USB flash drives were responsible for many important functions-they were used to store data, transfer files from one computer to another, watch movies and photos on a TV screen, play music by connecting them to a sound system, and more. Cloud storage, virtual machines and drives, and portable speakers are becoming more relevant today, however.

5. Ballet flats

Every woman in the 2000s was going to wear ballet flats with their favourite jeans and dresses. But the fashion of today calls for a bit more variety. Currently, combining a romantic look with sneakers or boots is more appropriate. Today, the jeans are pairing better with loafers, Oxford shoes or other men’s fashion footwear.

6. A beanie

That cap was a must-have piece of clothing at one time. But today the fashion from autumn to winter dictates different rules of the game. Robin Hood hats are more in fashion nowadays with a diagonal lapel, turbans, and cowls.

7. A wet-dry vacuum

Wet-dry vacuum cleaners have previously been able to save the day for those who wished to clean their homes without spending too much time. That invention, however, has a worthy competitor today, the steam mop. With it, you can clean the floor and vacuum the carpets at the same time.

8. Beige pumps

Nude-coloured shoes could previously be seen on any magazine’s pages, and they were thought to be good for any outfit. However, nowadays, shoes of contrasting colours are trendy, especially red and blue pumps.

Big, voluminous bags had previously been perceived as suitable for all occasions. But today no less practical tote bags, elongated totes and leather backpacks have replaced them.

10. Ceramic tiles

This everyday design solution for kitchen walls known as ceramic tiles has a significant disadvantage-it is very difficult to clean the seams between the tiles. That’s why removable glass backsplash has become increasingly popular in recent years, like this one by Skinali which is much easier to clean.
