No matter how today’s fashion trends evolve, it seems inevitable to learn from the retro style of the last century. Designers rack their brains to interpret classics such as the hippies of the 70s, the punks of the 80s, and the grunge of the 90s Style, creating a new look of women’s clothing with a fusion of old and new aesthetics.
So, in this wave of retro trends, which elements are particularly worthy of attention by fashion fans?
Suede, an artificial suede that mimics the deer family, has a warm thickness, rough grain, and uneven dyeing that mimics natural texture. One of the favorite clothing materials of hippie hipsters in the 70s. It has also been used by designers in recent seasons. On the Prada show, it has been turned into splicing wide-length coats and knitted sweaters. The version of suede fashion is beyond the past color-dominated concept of camel and uses bright cyan to create sports-style jackets and knee-length skirts, which outline delicate, sensual and quirky female images.
In daily dress, a long version of a suede trench coat can show the personality of this fabric, or you can pair knee-length suede skirt pants with high boots to wear an elegant and stylish Bourgeois ), And the combination of a suede vest skirt and a white throw-sleeve shirt can create a youthful playful atmosphere.
Western Denim Jacket
The denim/tassel jacket (western jacket), which is closely connected to the image of the western cowboy, is mostly presented in suede, leather, denim and other fabrics, which is a perfect combination of practicality and style aesthetics. Among them, the tassel jacket is also the 70s Must-have items in the wardrobe of country singers (such as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris); when modern designers take on the challenge of interpreting this fashion trend, we can see embroidery, rhinestones, pearls, rivets, decorative threads and other designs The details add a more creative personality to this jacket, such as the folk loafer coat with Etro knit folklore and Versace suede jacket with pearls, rhinestones or cutout totems.
It is not difficult to control this kind of product in daily life. Adding all kinds of jewelry / studded and fringed jackets will be your first choice to show the fashion statement. The styles added with leather weaving trim can convey a more “authentic” Retro style can be matched with the same nostalgic flannel check shirt, or choose and mix and match with elegant satin dresses.
90s sportswear representative “Leggings” (underpants / elastic leggings), formerly stockings worn by ancient men, laborers, or military men, without covering the soles of the feet, began to be made of lightweight elastic fabric in the 1970s, and gradually became widely accepted In the 1980s, it became one of Madonna’s must-have performance clothes. Interestingly, leggings have been described by Anna Wintour as “the scariest design in fashion history”, but they still have their fashion brilliance. They have returned to the show in recent quarters. Tables, such as Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Junya Watanabe, have introduced different styles of leggings in black and white patterns reminiscent of diamonds, all black latex, and sci-fi color printing.
And when the lens was pulled to the Fashion Week street, I saw that the ladies were wearing leggings that were more comfortable than ordinary pants, and included all-around styles, including metal cloth, shiny plastic, Scottish plaid, etc. Perfectly matched with high heels, it can also pair with oversized denim shirts and sneakers to produce sporty chic.
Psychedelic Zebra Pattern
The leopard pattern that dominates the trend charts all year round. Now it’s the time to retreat to the throne and give the throne to zebra stripes! Although the zebra pattern is not as wild and sexy as the leopard pattern, it has slightly psychedelic freedom and playful temperament. After the Second World War, it gradually attracted attention from the fashion circle. In recent years, it has been successfully revived by various designers. From this, Dolce & Gabbana created a wonderful combination of “Tweed Jacket + Knee Skirt + Mini Waist Bag” in zebra pattern, and Sacai’s deconstructed zebra pattern layered dress to match the sweater.
Want to use this free Mercedes-Benz animal pattern in your daily clothing? Fashion fans who are just getting started can use zebra print handbags as a highlight. More experienced fashion fans can try wide-blend tops/shirts or A-line / pleated skirts full of zebra prints. Fashion fans may wish to mix and match the zebra pattern with other animal patterns (such as leopard pattern and python pattern) to become the most distinctive fashionable scenery on the street.
