Fashion Trends That Are Making a Comeback 🤩•
Posted on September 21 2021
Scrolling through social media in todays day and age can be considered an Olympic sport on it's own with all the weird and wonderful styles going on.
Don’t worry, we are here to help you determine what trends are here to stay and which trends are only one day wonders.
It is crystal clear that nostalgia is key when it comes to fashion, and missing out on so much in the last year definitely contributes to the feeling of nostalgia. It is no secret that history repeats itself. You are probably aware of the fact that the 70’s, 90’s and 2000’s styles are coming back and hitting us hard!
Hopefully it's just the fun fashion and not the questionable make-up.
The 90’s fashion is all about colour and expression, this lets us express who we are through our fashion without even having to say a single word.
First of all, you probably noticed … baggy clothes are everything now
If you want to be perceived as a fashion forward individual, you cannot be seen in anything slim or skinny! Slim fit clothes are way to restrictive for the current way we are living and let's face it we are mostly working from home, times have changed and so has fashion.
Baggy jeans is the main character of the season, the new definition for these jeans are “wide-leg jeans” it gives an effect of a higher waist and gives the fashion star a chic look.
The plus points of the baggy clothing is that it offers so much more varieties such as shapes, colours and materials.
These pants can also be grouped with the famous mom jeans that are high waisted straight cut pants and have a loose-fitting leg that tapers right above the ankle. These wide leg jeans can be worn with almost any shoe, from boots to sneakers or sandals.
The next big thing is Go-Go Boots
Long, short, knee-high chunky or even sleek.
If you think of a 70’s Disco, you one hundred percent have to think of the iconic white go-go boots that was a staple for all women when enjoying a night out on the town.
These boots can easily be paired with a colourful mini dress, wide-leg pants, a spaghetti top, a petit knit, floral skirt or even a matching sweat suit. The posibilities are endless.
Corduroy has been making a comeback for quite a while now. Jeans and jackets are most famous to be staple corduroy items.
Corduroy is a strong durable fabric that has a rounded cord or wave surface that is formed by a cut pile yarn. Corduroy adds an extra flair of texture to your outfit.
It was mostly used for kiddies clothing, but the fashion industry has definitely reconsidered the texture and is using it all round now.
