The saying “history repeats itself” is applicable to some styles that are so hot right now. Snatch these up new, raid your mom/grandma’s closet (or your own), or scour your vintage or thrift store (weekend fun with your girlfriends!).
Roaring ’20s Gangster
We know you love menswear, but this trend is a little more sophisticated than throwing on your boyfriend’s blazer or shirt. With origins in England and the Emerald Isle, we’re loving brogues (shoes…not those sexy accents) a.k.a. wingtips. ALDO’s Goolia Style ($50) brings us back in a good way.
Add a hint of nicety to the normal 1950s femme fatale person with an updated pair of cat’s eye sunglasses. Fred Flare’s Jaclyn Sweetheart Sunglasses ($11) make film noir’s best accessory seem…(dare we say it?) cute.
‘60s/70’s Hippie Chic
Once the style of rebels, flower children and wanderers, hippie has gone haute. We’re wondering if all those Deadheads would’ve given up tie-dye for this adorable Babydoll Flower Tank ($55) by Peony. We’re thinking…yes. DISCOUNT ALERT: Use the word DESIGNER at checkout and get our Shecky’s exclusive 50% off all Peony Apparel.
You have every episode of Saved by the Bell, 90210 and Melrose Place taped on VHS, right? Max out this trend by Donna-ing one of your own originals (you kept them, be honest), or buy an updated version. We love the ladylike details, like ruffles and a deep V-neck, on Urban Outfitter’s Lucca Couture Floral Ruffle Dress ($68).
GIRL TALK TIME: What old-fashioned style do you love? What trends do you hope will come back? Do you wear stuff from decades ago? Ever raided your mom or grandmother’s closet? What did you find?
