Fashion always has a way of coming full circle. This season we’re seeing a lot of 80s/90s inspired trends that have resurrected on the runway and on the streets. Take a look at some of the old fashion statements that are now getting hype from the new generation.
1. Baggy Pants
Like many early 2000s trends, the baggy-pants look has been slowly creeping back into the fashion scene. Those “loose fit trousers” that we all hated, may actually become cool again. Designers like Louis Vuitton, J. Crew, Raf Simons, and more have featured baggy pants in their latest shows. Spring and Summer is around the corner, and this trend may be the perfect piece to enjoy that breeze, and a break from the skinny, slim-fit, look.
2. Vintage Monogram Bags
Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Dior, all turned heads when they re-introduced their monogrammed prints to the runway. Since then, fashion enthusiast have routinely made logo bags (specifically these brands) their go-to accessory to complete and outfit. Paired with streetwear or athleisure, a designer bag can add that “urban luxury” to any outfit.
3. Dad Sneakers
We can definitely thank Balenciaga for this footwear trend. Last year, the fashion house introduced us to their ‘Triple S’ shoe, which became viral on social media almost immediately. Whether you love them or hate them, the “dad sneakers” have been a huge hit on runways. With Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian, and Luka Sabbat, advocating the trend, we can expect to see ugly sneakers to come back.
Whether its Sherpa or full-on mink, fur coats have been on their way back for a while. A trend that use to be only for the rich and elite, has now become the IT coat of the winter. Thanks to retailers like Forever 21, Zara, and Topshop, you no longer have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks.
5. Over-sized Blazers
In addition to baggy pants, it looks like we may have an ‘over-sized’ era among us. This year, the 80s-style over-sized blazer came in and dominated the runway. Just like trend #2, the over-sized blazer can elevate your street wear look.
