The Nostalgia Trend Has Arrived & Is Sure To Stay
If there was a time-warp, I would go straight to the 60’s and the Hipster 70’s, prancing around in our knee-high boots, mini skirts and shape shifter dresses. If you would do the same, look no further for inspiration and swing right back with the retro vibe.
1. Polka dots and pussy bow? I’m vintage already!
Oversized sunnies teamed casually with a shift dress, one that has bell sleeves and pussy bow detailing take us to the cheerful Sixties, don’t you think?
2) Hippy shake with fringe toppings!
Fringe + Suede + Mustard + Stripes + Boots = Retro Remodelled!
Shimmying with the delicate tasseled trims, brings out the softer side to the Seventies. If you’re slightly unsure of channeling the boho chic in you, well, fringe + mustard is just want you need!
Mustard, one of the hottest hues of the season injects the right amount of colour to our winter wardrobe.
3) When LBD was a baby!
LBD + Boots = Mega Babe
What makes this LBD so Seventies is the hint of luxe velvet and tie-up detailing, the obvious bell sleeves and of course the boots which we used to complete the outfit. The hint of pop on her lips and puffed up hair just spells style with a tinge of sepia, don’t you think?
4) When 80’s arrived, spilling glamour everywhere..
Textured Crop Top + Cropped Trousers = 80’s Stunner
Loud, flashy and electric- that’s the 80’s for you! The next time you go clubbing, here’s what you should be wearing. Style revival has never looked this good! This outfit is all that you need to take you from desk to dinner on a Friday night.
PS- Don’t Forget To Take Off That Blazer!
5) Not too casual, not too formal- Daytime rewind!
Turtleneck + Printed Pants + Pointy Shoes = Head Turner
If you need a little something to take you through the crisp, autumnal air, you must hold on to that turtleneck. When paired with floral printed pants and matching pointy court shoes, the ensemble screams out 60’s like no other. Think Brigitte Bardot, guys!
6) If you think Boho is a modern concept, “you know nothin”!
Peasant Top + Leggings + Suede Boots = Retro Revival
If we’ve learnt anything from the 70’s, it’s how to make it work with a peasant top! Bohemian, free-spirited and absolutely easy, these floaty tops are a definite favourite of ours. From sunshine to sundown, a peasant top can be paired well enough with ankle grazing boots or even knee-highs.
7) The free size king – Poncho!
Poncho + Boots + Structured Bag = Winter Ready
Every girl needs one head turning piece to complete her outfit. The knit poncho is the star, here. Why? Well, because there’s much to love about it- the fall perfect colours, the way it falls and how the structured bag + boots just match our mood!
