French: "back in style"?

How, in French, would one say "back in style" (after having been out of style)? This doesn't have to be actually related to the idea of style, though - just "cool again", sarcastically would be best! ^-^ I guess "cool encore" or something like that might work, but I'm wondering if there's anything smoother.

(Context, if it helps: "When will office hours be cool again?"/"Are office hours going to be cool again anytime soon?")

Thanks, all!
