Fashion been the most dynamic trends keep changing. New trends and styles are constantly flooding into the mainstream while most of us are just struggling to keep up with the thought of “how are we supposed to afford an entirely new wardrobe every single time”
Well, we are about to let you in on a little secret. Fashion recycles, and what was old will almost certainly become new again. It’s no coincidence that styles like flared denim and crop tops that were popular decades ago have now, once again, become the trends of today’s youth. This is why you should never throw away your favourite pieces. If they fit and flatter you but have gone out of style, store them away in a box in the back of your closet for a few years, and they just might make a style comeback.
You’ll be ahead of the game without having to spend any of your hard-earned money on a new version of something you already own. You know times are hard!
Check out some of the styles that fell out of fashion but have returned in all their vintage glory and are once again in vogue. From full circle skirts that fall below the knee to wiggle dresses that were the rave in the 1940s and ’50s, these fashion trends have proven to withstand the test of time and are now back and better than ever.
Here are some of our absolute favorites;
1. Circle skirts
Circle skirts were a prim lady’s style staple in the 1950s. Not much has changed these days as modern-day women are still rocking this classic piece but updating it with a more modern edge by adding cute, current accents like a fun felt beret and cool leather accessories.
2. Crop tops
Designers have been reinventing the crop top ever since it became popular as part of two-piece matching sets in the 1930s and ’40s. Crop tops have since come back every single decade in new and different styles.
3. Pú$sy bow blouses
The pú$sy-bow blouse was incredibly popular in the ’80s. Though these feminine tops were often made in uncomfortable synthetic materials, the latest versions can be found in more comfortable cottons, linens, and silks and still look great with a slim pencil skirt or wide-leg trouser for work.
4. White shirt dresses
This minimalist look will never go out of style due to its clean lines and classic silhouette.
5. Aviator sunglasses
Do you remember that old album we used to have at home that has a couple wearing aviator glasses on the cover? The glasses are back again! You can rock yours just like them.
6. Bishop sleeves
The bishop sleeve is recognizable due to its full, voluminous sleeve and fitted cuff for a dramatic effect. Have you noticed? All your fave style influencers are rocking these sleeves.
7. Bell bottomsBell bottoms actually came onto the scene as a naval design for sailors but quickly became part of the trend culture in the ’70s. We have since brought them back into fashion and are coming up with new ways to rock this far-out look all the time!8. Platform shoesOldies musicians and glam rockers were notable wearers of this heightened shoe style, but now platforms have made a comeback, and the stage isn’t the only place to find them anymore.9. Cat eye glassesEveryone is familiar with the Parisian famous cat-eye lenses, but these funky frames are back and cuter than ever, and we’re obsessed!10. CorsetsCorsetry was invented in France in the late 16th century. These restrictive structures were worn under a woman’s clothing to shape her body. Thankfully, designers have created slightly less restrictive versions that can be worn as a top or as an accessory to add a little glamour to an otherwise basic look.Whatcha say?
