4 Trends From The Past You Need This Fall

Fashion is an eternal renewal of old and beloved styles. Indeed, if you thought that something like the plaid pattern was new and innovative, it’s time to screw your Back to The Future cap on and travel through time.

This year, especially, it’s all about rediscovering the favorite outfits of your parents, grandparents, – or even digging into the clothes you loved when you were a teen yourself. Consequently, if you’re looking for a cute outfit that will show off your playfulness without being over the top for your next family gathering, now is the best time to open the fashion’s memory box and dive into a universe of old trends made new again.

Back to the 90s: Denim on denim

For anyone who grew up in the 1990s, there is no trend more iconic that denim. From Beverly Hills to Saved By The Bell, denim has been declined to a variety of outfits, from cozy mom jeans to jackets. Of course, wearing jeans is nothing new. But now, it’s all about mixing your denim together. A cute embroidered denim jacket can transform a simple outfit into a show-stealer! If you’ve got a pair of pins to die for, you can accessorize your favorite denim shorts with a pair of thick tights and combat boots. Add a denim shirt, and you’re ready for your next family event.

The sweet skater dress is still trendy

The skater dress has been around for over 20 years now, and its popularity is not dying out. In fact, the short dress combines both femininity and playfulness and is a great match to heels, sneakers, or even flat boots. If you’re still looking for the perfect little number, you can shop the top online dress boutiques here. If you want a bold seasonal pattern, opt for an animal-inspired print. For something more casual, stripes and big flower prints can be dressed up or down with the right accessories.

Make everyday outfit looks like a boss

Plaid is exciting again! Tartan and plaid patterns were hot when your mother and grandmother were growing up and, apart from a quick appearance on the grunge scene in the 1990s, they disappeared from the fashion shops. Finally, they are back again and declined on most clothing items, from cozy plaid coats that keep you warm and stylish to business-like pants for a lady boss. You can wrap a casual tee and jeans outfit in a plaid coat and still look your best for a job interview. Ultimately, the tartan style makes everything look more professional.

Oversized and Bold

Last, but not least, as the temperatures drop, the thing you want to do most is to disappear under a warm blanket. While you can’t exactly carry a blanket around, fashion sensors like Zara have thought of a stylish and comfortable alternative: Chunky and oversized sweaters. To give your sweater a youthful touch, pick a vibrant color – neon hues are big again if you’re feeling bold enough. Orange, cobalt blue and bright yellow are fantastic choices this season.

Bold colors to casual denim, it’s time to give your vintage style some fresh love!
