And we were calling their fashion outdated? Some of the most fashionable trends were born in the era of 60’s to 90’s and Fashion this year is big time driven by that era.

Trends which made come back in 2016.

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

Big geek Glasses

The giant geeky glasses and tinted shades are making a huge comeback and how. Think Zeenat Aman and Dum Maaro Dum and you know what we are talking about. Ask your moms and they will tell you how big a rage they were back in their time. And luckily for us, this retro trend is back in vogue. Myriad shapes and different hues, you can pair these glasses with your wardrobe and look retro-chic.

High Waisted Denims

There is a reason why they are called the ‘mom jean’ because they love you back. The silhouette may be super unflattering but boy oh boy, are they snuggly? Your Pinterest feed is flooded with fashion bloggers giving a big thumbs up to this retro style. These high rise pants were a rage back in our moms’ time and it is here to stay.

Fringes and Tassels

Tassel Fringe is in! Yes there is still plenty of 70s- and Western-inspired suede fringe walking down the runways and on the streets these days. Get your boho-chic on and flaunt your fringe in accessories and clothes.

Chokers

Revamp your wardrobe and give it that extra edge with beautifully embellished chokers. This trend has made a huge comeback since the 70’s and many Indian celebs have been sported flauting their necks in style. Your mom in the eighties was definitely donning these beauties and so should you.

Big Hoop Earrings

When it came to earrings back in the seventies, the bigger was definitely better. And this decade too, stands by it. Sneak into your mother’s jewellery box and gorge on your mom’s favourite gold hoop earrings.

Block heels

If you are hunting for big chunky heels, you need to look no further. Prod your mother to take out her old platform heels for you. These may not be super comfortable but hey, who said vanity was easy.

Peasant Blouses

The flowy silhouette was everything that the seventies stood for; nonchalance and freedom. Our mothers will tell us that. The peasant blouses have made a huge comeback in 2016 as well. This hippie style is effortless, casual and modern.

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

Kaftans

This flowy garb from the seventies has returned to the fashion scene, like never before. You can wear it as a beach cover up or to a date and look flawlessly elegant. Or you can tweak your mother’s old Kaftans and give them a refreshing makeover.

Go Suede this Winter

suede-2piece

If there are two fabrics you must keep with you at all times this season, it has to be Denim and Suede. We have already mastered the art of Denim this past summer and now it’s time for style lessons for the ever-tricky SUEDE!!!

There is definitely no denying how the Seventies have taken over the entire fashion scene, so if you still can’t seem to bring yourself to love those platform heels and that crochet top, it’s time you turn to the evergreen Suede!

Yves Saint Laurent A-W '15-16

The runways have had their own dose of Suede Frenzie this year. From Gucci to Chanel, from Michael Kors to Tom Ford – everyone is doing it and How! On the catwalk, not only did we see it as a super-cool jacket or dress but we saw it layered up: suede squared.

On the streets too you see immense abundance of the fabric. From button-down skirts to fringe jackets and perfectly tan sling bags – we have been seeing it all! And if going the Suede way apparel-wise is a little over the top for you, you can certainly open your wardrobe up to some precious suede boots or a hobo fringe bag!
