The year 2015 was all about trend resurgence: There were ’70s flared trousers and necktie blouses, ’90s chokers and tricked-out denim jackets, and a mix of other pieces that were seemingly brought back to life from our wardrobe’s past. Expect to see a lot of this now we’re in 2016! One of the ways you can experiment with these come-back looks is by wearing clothing that works for both current trends, incorporating ’70s and ’90s inspiration in one piece.
We scoured the globe to come up with a solid list of five ‘90s and ’70s fashion trends that are officially back—and that we think deserve a second chance at seeing the light of day, along with a modern-day upgrade. It’s only a matter of time until these pieces will be dominating fashion runways and street style slide shows. Consider this your chance to be a trendsetting trailblazer before everyone else catches on!
‘70s and ‘90s inspired denim is huge this season. From boot-cut to bell bottom there are a lot of ‘70s throwbacks. The ‘90s is huge too! Think wider, slouchier cuts, ’90s skate style denim (but more refined). There is also a lot of ‘90s inspired cropped styles for both Men and Women.
Flannels and Plaids
The ‘90s influence is still strong with this season featuring a lot of flannel and plaid textiles. This is a particularly big trend for menswear.
You’ve been warned! The ‘90s Rave culture is back in a big way – think minimalism, grunge and fanny packs, which all make appearances this season.
Showing skin is definitely in, particularly around the shoulder area. From crop and bra tops, to off-the-shoulder blouses there’s no shortage. Also where the halter top was considered a piece from the ’70s yesteryear, it is back!
Let’s be real: Who doesn’t love pajama dressing? Silky shirts, trousers, and slip dresses make putting an outfit together a breeze. But one piece of our undergarments drawer we didn’t see make its way into our everyday wardrobes was the lace camisole: a flirty number that had its heyday back in the late ‘90s. Well, we finally saw these tanks have had a high-fashion makeover, and we’re thinking that is just the beginning.
