Trends often reflects the society. Important personalities in history have also had an impact on fashion, but no matter how competitive and innovative the Fashion industry is, it actually has to follow what is called the “Fashion Cycle”, which has no specific measurable time period. Some styles sustain for longer period of time. Some die out soon, and some styles come back years after they were declined.. So we can say that fashion changes with time and has always been evolving to fit the taste, lifestyle and demands of society. It is only natural that the new trends are introduced to the public gradually.

Take a look at these vintage styles from our mom’s generation that is making a comeback this season.

Flared bottoms

To ace this trend, all you need to do is raid your mom’s closet or trunks from years gone by and take out her flared bottoms. This ‘hippie’ style accentuates your figure like no other. You can pair them with high heels and off-shoulder tops and you are good to go. The perfect blend of quirk and bohemia, these vintage bottoms are comfortable and snug, and our moms loved wearing them a lot back in the 70s.flared bottoms

Myriad shapes and different hues, you can pair these glasses with your wardrobe and look retro-chic.

Winged Liner

Made famous by Sharmila Tagore and Hema Malini, the winged liner was quite the rage back in our mother’s time. Before we even heard of the winged liner, our mothers were casually applying feline flicks on their eyes. Seventies, was the decade when the cat eye look was at its most dramatic. winged liner.jpg
