70s Clothing Style

In the age of Tik Tok, past decades trends have become more prevalent in today’s society. From perfecting the “90’s supermodel” hair, low-waisted -or high-waisted- jeans, or 70’s style clogs, the past decades’ trends have become more frequent in 2021.

I first fell victim to this trend in the middle of quarantine last year, and after spending many hours on YouTube and Tik Tok, I cut myself “curtain bangs”. What I first thought was a new hairdo, I soon learned that the fringe was popularized in the 1970s. Also popularized in the 1970s; clogs, high-waisted jeans, denim, crochet tops, and bell-tops, all trends that are pervasive in 2021. 

Often, people in 2021 also look at style from the 1990’s and 2000’s to influence their fashion choices. Claw clips, tiny purses, and low-waisted jeans are all back in style, and many people look at celebrities, such as Jennifer Aniston or Britney Spears’ street style from this time for inspiration.

Tik Tok is a major influence in the revitalization of past decades trends. Since most of Gen-Z is on the social media app, this community allows us to discuss the latest fashion trends, and try different styles out. Though some trends from past decades are questionable, I love to see the influence it has on style today!
