Retro Fashion Trends Making a Comeback in 2017

Posted on

If you've been paying attention to trends over the years, you'll know that fashion is pretty cyclical in nature; what once was old will become new again. It might take a few years or even a couple of decades, but if history has taught us anything, it's that some styles never truly die. From shoulder pads to chokers, flares to dungarees, over the years some of the most iconic looks of decades past have been resurrected with a fresh twist. So today we're presenting you with some of the biggest comeback trends from yesteryear that should be making an appearance in your wardrobe this season!

Bell Sleeves
The 70's revival has been taking the fashion world by storm recently and one of our favourite styles brought back by this resurgence are bodacious bell sleeves. Effortlessly elegant, bell sleeves are beloved by many because not only do they add a little oomph to any outfit, they also make the simplest of arm movements a dramatic statement. Hailing a cab, pouring a cup of tea and even mowing the grass will never be the same again now that the bell sleeve is back in business! Inject a little drama into your wardrobe and dare to flare with our retro bell sleeve beauties.

Band Tees
Whether you're curling up on the sofa for a cosy night in or painting the town red on a tipsy night out, no item of clothing is as comfortable, or stylish as the classic band tee. All the rage back in the 80's and 90's, band tees have burst back into the fashion scene and become the must-have item for both laidback and luxuriant fashionistas. Easy to style, they're one of the most versatile pieces you can own, so why not pay homage to one of your favourite bands in our classically cool vintage tees? Shop vintage band t-shirts here.

One of our favourite trends to have jumped out of retirement from fashion's hall of fame is embroidery. Adding a bit of colourful character to any look, embroidered pieces are every quirky fashion lover's dream because they can be incorporated into your wardrobe to suit any occasion. From party dresses to denim jackets. bikinis to pashminas, embroidery has the ability to add a unique spin to any look. So what are you waiting for?

Last Autumn Juicy Couture announced that #TRACKISBACK and they weren't wrong - Kickstarting a whole new athleisure revolution, tracksuits have been overhauled and are now appearing everywhere from the runway to high street stores. However, this time instead of just being reserved for casual wear, tracksuits have been upgraded in the style stakes and are now a revered addition to any wardrobe. Initially rooted in streetwear and hip hop culture, tracksuits have become just as fashionable than our little black dresses - I mean who doesn't love an outfit that you can wear whilst going for a jog AND when living it up at your favourite festival?

Slip Dress
Who can forget the 90's? The decade that spawned chokers, mood rings and frosted tips also gave us one of the most fashionable comeback looks of 2017; the slip dress. The perfect combination of risque and refined, the beauty of the slip dress is in its simplicity. Whether you want to dress it up with heels or down with boots, layer it over a t-shirt or under a jumper, there's an option out there for every type of style junkie!
