Style Trends From Many Decades

Has anyone else noticed how the fashion industry seems to be running out of ideas for new clothing styles? Everywhere I look I see inspirations from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Which I am all for! I love the 70s inspired striped long sleeve tops with a cute denim skirt and the 80s mom jeans with a cute inspirational graphic tee and the 90s overalls and spaghetti strap tops and dresses with a plain white or colored tee underneath.

The 70s style is so much fun! I love the type of skirts that were made back then and how it can be paired with a casual top and people will still hand out compliments on the outfit. Who knew that a cute skirt and a T-shirt could be paired together and still look stylish! Another 70s trend is the bell bottom jeans, I have been able to find bell bottom jeans at stores like American Eagle and H&M.

Another pair of jeans that is coming into style again are the mom jeans from the 80s. My personal favorite. They are so comfortable to wear; they can be used to dress cute or to dress comfy. Scrunchies were also brought back this year. I love how they can be matched with outfits to add an easy hair accessory to any look!

Overall, overalls are the most versatile style trend of 2018. Overall dresses, shorts and skinny jeans. Stylists took the overalls trend and modernized them. I love overalls because there are so many pockets, and all the girls who are reading this know we have a pocket shortage in our clothes. Another trend form the 90s are the spaghetti strap tops and dresses worn with a plain white or colored T-shirt underneath. Many people don’t know what to think about this trend, but personally, I love it. I have spaghetti strap dresses that I want to wear to school, but never could because of the dress code, I didn’t want to wear a cardigan either. After seeing this trend come around I tried it out and loved it!

2018 adapted many trends from previous decades, have stylist run out of ideas that are new and have the potential to be popular? I am excited to see what 2019 has in store for the style industry, something old or something new it is all new to me so bring it on.
