5 Retro Looks that came back

12:00 AM

Dress:  Victoria Beckham for Target // Shoes:  Guess (Marshall's old)

Let’s face it, fashion repeats itself.  I feel like nowadays the fashion trends are almost a mix of a few decades.  Lately though, I’ve seen a lot of the 70’s and 90’s being mixed together.  I personally get super nostalgic when I see 90’s esque clothing and accessories because it reminds me of when I was younger.  For today’s post since I decided to dress a little retro I wanted to talk about 5 retro trends that I’m glad are back.  Some of these are actually back again because I remember bell bottoms coming back into style when I was younger and we all had to have a pair that covered our shoes, now it’s a mix of skinny jeans and bell bottoms.

1.  Bell Bottoms

I love bell bottoms and always have.  They have a way of making my legs look thinner than they actually are.  I remember the first time I strayed away from boot cut jeans and put on a pair of skinny jeans and wasn’t a huge fan, but I eventually got used to them and liked them.  However, bell bottoms have always had a spot in my heart.  I feel like they’re the stereotypical 70’s fashion that EVERYONE associates with that era and hippies. 

2.  Fun Accessories

From the shoes, to hair pieces, to all of the fun bangles, they are all back.  I mean if you just look at people who went to Coachella, it’s a mix of 70’s and 90’s so basically a grunge hippie.  Look at how the hair pieces still stuck around, you know which ones, that go around your head instead of going through your hair like a regular headband. 

3.  Crochet

I always loved crochet, but the 70’s had a lot of crochet.  I’ve seen so many awesome crochet crop tops or even bathing suits that are crochet.  Does anyone else think of rasta beanies or hackey sacks when they see the crocheted bikinis?  Nope, just me?

4.  Bright Colors

The one thing I love about the 60’s and 70’s are the colors.  I mean they had these in the 80’s too but in the 80’s they were that typical hot pink, neon yellow, neon orange, etc.  Whereas in the 60’s and 70’s it was bright oranges, yellows, and so on.  A lot of the clothes that I recently bought from the VBxTarget collection remind me of the 60’s and 70’s with the colors and patterns.

5.  Bohemian Dresses

This is something I love.  I love anything off the shoulder, I love loose fitting dresses, think Free People.  I read an article the other day that said once you’re past 30 you shouldn’t be wearing these things.  Honestly though, who cares?  If you feel comfortable and confident that should be all that matters.  I hate when I see stuff like that.  Would I wear a crop top at 50, honestly probably not because I wouldn’t feel comfortable, but wearing an off the shoulder bohemian style dress at age 30?  How is that even a thing to argue in an online post haha!  Whoever wrote that article had entirely too much time on their hands.
