22 Accessories Justin Timberlake Should Leave Behind For His Music Comeback

Justin Timberlake's return to music, after around six years without putting out a solo album, has been one of the biggest, most exciting bits of news so far this week, this month, and yea, this year (it's only January, so we can say that). From the glorious moment we saw JT tweet out his "I'm Ready" video announcement, we've been fantasizing about what this new record might sound like and (of equal import to us) whether his touring and promotional steez for the new music would be more akin to FutureSex/LoveSounds or his *NSync glory days (given the '90s revival that's sweeping the fashion world). The Clinton era and the early aughts that followed were both questionable times in style history, and while we're trying to stay positive and trust that Timberlake is bringing sexy back, the following 22 accessories ain't justified, and we'd prefer they stay in the past.

Though, we do hope it's properly archived somewhere in a temperature-controlled fortress. Or the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
